My little Radiant wishlist

Hello all, I’ll be honest, I fell in love with radiant and I am using it
for
our company website and for two customers. While working with radiant
I’ve
found I need some features that are not there (still? :)) can you tell
me
if there are plugins for those or if I should implement them myself or
if
they’re in the pipeline?

  1. Export / Import parts of the tree. I work on customers’ websites on
    subtrees of the main site, it would be great to be able to export those
    subtrees so I could import them into a new installation and have the
    site
    work fine.
  2. More user roles. Once a site is finished I would like to give users a
    way
    to access it and only post content in certain sections.
  3. Multisite radiant. I saw on the wiki there is a nice way to have
    radiant
    work with multiple sites, but that way I have to be the only one who can
    edit the sites, because giving admin access to a user automatically
    gives
    him the permission to edit pages in the other sites.
  4. Move and rearrange the Pages/Layouts. This is just a minor annoyance
    but
    would be nice :slight_smile:

If something is outside the scope of radiant please be harsh with me I
promise I won’t go and cry into the closet :slight_smile:

John, Radiant is a nice piece of software :slight_smile:

Better export and import code is in the pipeline. I’m not sure if it

will be as granular as you suggest above, but I am definitely open to
the possibility.

Right now I’m just recreating the structure on the deploy server and
cut’n’pasting the content. It’s not a big problem since I usually move
the
site when the structure is done but the content isn’t there yet.
Nonetheless
an export / import feature would be cool :slight_smile:

I’m reading throught radiant’s code, I hope I will be able to contribute
soon.

  1. More user roles. Once a site is finished I would like to give users a

way to access it and only post content in certain sections.
I currently have no plans to support this level of granularity.

Does this mean patches moving in that direction would be rejected?

Agreed. There have been a few patches submitted for this. I’m not sure
of their present status though.

I browsed through the patches yesterday, the models have been patched,
there’s the need to rewrite the JS for the admin section.

I need this and several others have asked for it. Yes, I would like to
implement it.

Wouldn’t #2 & #3 be essentially the same? One would just filter
through a domain while the other only a folder. That is, if the
multisite setup is the same as the one I saw a while ago, where each
site is a heirarchy of folders.

Just my non-technical .02,

Yes it’s mostly the same, but one can have 2 without 3 :slight_smile:
