A few tweaks that we think makes the already great Structure add-on even better, without messing with it.

Republic Structure Tweaks is an add-on for ExpressionEngine that gives you a few extra options for the content management page in the Structure add-on.

Features:

     
  • Customize channels in the “Add page” dialog
  •  
  • Remove the “Add page” link for specific channels and pages
  •  
  • Shows the channel name for a page on hover, useful if you have a lot of content types
  •  
  • Shows a (closed) indicator after closed pages

The biggest thing is that you can easily select which channels that should be used in the Add page dialog. From our experience, this really makes content editors happy and dramatically makes adding new content a lot less prone to errors. You can select options for each channel or make selections for individual pages.

The above functions is only made with the help of some JavaScript. This means that it never will break any of your data or mess with the Structure add-on in any way. If you don’t like it, just remove it and everything is back to normal.

But, this also means that it’s not intended to be used as a security add-on, it only hides stuff to make the experience better for editors. If they have the right member permissions, the could still drag and drop pages under other pages that you’ve hid in the settings.

We found that our clients really appreciated it, so we thought that there might be other out there that will too.

For more information and to download the add-on please visit the Republic Labs web site.

Hooks Used

If the add-on is an extension, and ties into ExpressionEngine's core files, it will use ExpressionEngine hooks. We are listing any hooks the add-on uses for developers to have an easier time locating other add-ons that they can reference for their own work.

Excellent little add-on for Structure, the guys there need to implement all of these tweaks into their product!
