Making the preview work through customization

Postby Esstee » Fri Jun 03, 2005 11:24 am

My news site project has many categories and a very fixed layout, in this
case I will be relying heavilly on the news preview addon coupled with a
preview requirement by all users before submitting to make certain there
submissons are sound.

I have already reconstructed a prop newsroom look in a preview style
and it seems to work nicely, but I was thinking, why stop there, why not
have a conditional that would call up a preview fitting the exact category
the user is submitting on, this way he or she could get an exact preview
of the submission in question.

I was thinking of creating a dynamic single page using css or otherwise
where according to the category condition in the news submission the user
would be shown a news preview according, so his or her posts and display
a preview of his or her post in every category and style where it might appear.

Ex: if its in General News (default) and your layout supports multiple news
placements within the same page it could display that particular section
in color and the rest of the layout in greyscale.

Does this sound like a kool feature?

So the question is how to create a conditional that would allow a dynamic
preview page to be made so that we could generate the custom preview
per category.

If my idea is not clear I will gladly make screenshots of my idea :)
I went deeper into the belly of Coranto and look! I found maginot.

Do a search for "preview AND multiple" and you get a couple of hits, should give you some ideas?
Yes, I am still around...
