Ok. First, confession time.
For several months, I have been collecting a list of really cool stuff I would LOVE to see turned into Joomla! extensions. When I was able to suggest tasks for this contest, I pulled out my list. Now, it feels like I am getting some pretty amazing holiday gifts!
THIS one has been on my WISH LIST for awhile! So, sincere thanks to you!!!
This is a very, very important missing extension from the Joomla! library. It is amazing what you have accomplished in a short period of time.
You did it perfectly. Hyperlinks on the days with articles. None without. Love the link to the entire month of articles. It's a menu, of sorts.
Suggestion: Change background-color to white (#FFFFFF). That ought to work nice for most people (and, trust me, most will not know what to do if it doesn't look good with their template.)
Error: When you click on the date or the month, it shows the prior date, or the prior month in the heading of the component.
es-ES language also included in en-GB folder.
Wish list (this would give you the "opportunity" to build an administrative component piece)-
- ability to show or hide section/content labels beneath the title;
- ability to show or hide intro text, author name, date published;
- pagination (can you steal from view/search/tmpl/default_results.php?);
- Page title (off, Date only, Date and # of results).
Of course, you'll want to do a bit of cleanup - remove the HelloWorld stuff, etc.
This extension has obviously had some loving care poured into it. You put some effort in this, didn't you? Were you late to school that day (above)? Do you like this? Is it fun? You are very, very good at developing. I hope you get some satisfaction knowing this will be used by many thousands of people all over the world. You are a big part of that, as are the others who contributed code towards this - but you pulled it together for the Joomla! community. As a member of this community who *will* benefit from *your* efforts: thank you!
I look forward to your response.
