My Tridion 2011 CTP Extensions Go GA
While I have been planning to publish many more posts already this year, time seems more slippery than expected and I just can’t find it and hold it down for the necessary amount of… well, time.
So nothing fancy with this post, I just wanted to publish the extensions I created before, for the Tridion 2011 CTP(Item Xml Display and List Quick Helper) with the update to make them work on the already released Tridion 2011 (GA).
So for those of you who have been holding their breath in anticipation (you shouldn’t really do that, its unhealthy) you can now download the updated extensions and run them on your 2011 GA environment.
Just a reminder of what the extensions do and how they look like:
The Item XML Display lets users view the XML content of any Tridion item without leaving the GUI using an overlay. This makes it very easy to view and copy the entire XML structure or parts of it when needed.
The List Quick Helper extension adds an overlay box to the GUI list view to provide instant information about the item selected in the list as well as some useful tools such as: quick folder creator, quick structuregroup creator, go to item, rename item and publishing items from different locations.
As I would like to add more functionality to the helper extension I will really appreciate any comments you have letting me know of issues you find with it or ideas for tools that will fit the helper.
I did have to change the configuration for the extensions a bit to match the format for the new version. This was also a chance to make sure the configured extensions are better set up in a way that will make it easier to disable one without the other. It is also easier to deploy them separately now of course.
