Actions on content rows

Creating a row

A row allows you to input content with a fixed format.  The creation of a new row allows you to add a new kind of content to your pages or new formatting for any given kind of data.

Once created, the XML definition of the row is saved on the server as an XML file in the /automne/templates/rows folder

Modifiying a row

Modifiying an existing row changes its properties (name, description), but also its groups in order to restrict its use to certain user profiles.

It is also possible to change the XML definition of your row to adapt the formatting of the data it contains.

Changing the XML definition of a row already used in pages will apply the new formatting to all pages using this row.

Activating / de-activating a row

Activating a row determines if it can be used when creating or modifying a page.  When it is created, a row is inactive by default in order to allow you to finalize it before it is used by editors.

Once the row is created and its XML definition is finished, remember to activate it so that editors can use it.

If a row is created for a unique use (for a particular need in a page), you can de-activate it after it it is inserted to avoid it being re-used in another page.

De-activing arow has no impact on the pages already using it.

Deleting a row

You can delete a row only if it is no longer assigned to any page. You can see pages using a row in the information returned when searching for a row.

Deleting a row is irreversible.  Once deleted, your row can no longer be found and this action is not submitted for validation.

Be careful not to delete a row that may be used in the future; it is better in this case to de-activate it to prevent it from being used in pages
