Add-On Type(s)



An old EE1 extension that fixes minor nuisances in the ExpressionEngine Control Panel. No longer under development nor supported.

What does it do?

This extension doesn’t have any settings, so as soon as you enable it, you’ll notice the following effects:

No title attribute for links

You know how you get three JavaScript prompts each time you click the “Link” button in the entry form? The third one will add a title attribute to the link you’re creating, which is not necessary most of the time. Low CP gets rid of the third prompt, omitting the attribute.

No Check Spelling, Glossary or Smileys

I’ve never really used the three “textarea helper” links. Some browsers, like Firefox and Safari, even have built in spelling checkers. The glossary is only useful if you add your own items in there. Don’t even get me started on smileys. Low CP hides these three links.

No localization for custom date fields

Each time I used a custom date field for a client, that client asked me what “fixed” or “Localized” meant. Each of those times it wasn’t really important, but “fixed” would be my preferred choice. In the end—also due to a clumsy translation mistake—it caused more confusion than it should. Low CP gets rid of the drop down select box and replaces it with a hidden form field which sets the localization to fixed by default.

No Trackbacks column

Seriously, who uses trackbacks anymore? I’ve never used them and found that—in the edit entries table—it causes confusion with clients. Of course we can’t have any of that, that’s why Low CP removes that column from the edit entries table.

Infinite URL title duplicates

Not very common, but harmless to add anyway. There’s a maximum to the number that’s appended to the URL title if it already exists. Say, for example, that you add an entry called “News” every week. The first time, the URL title becomes news. The second time, it’ll be news1. Then news2, and so on, until you reach news50. After that, you’ll get an error message saying the URL title already exists. Low CP removes this limit.
