posts: 20

Hello!rolleyes

In the WYSIWYG editor toolbar is "Article" and selecting it --> a window opens:

In this case, an user have to indicate the article ID for established a link!. But isn't a trivial option..

Is there a posibility to select the existing articles by a combo_list or a box?question

The article selection could be more easy if the user can choose through a article name list.. right?

thanks!

If this is for regular users, why not use the Article List plugin to give a list of Articles which the user can then select?

Hi!
thanks for your reply.
Mmmm.. yes, the option that you mention is a possibility. But article-list plugin returns all articles.. Ok, the article-list plugin permits to select by different parameters a short preferent list of articles, but (e.g.) you can't select articles through the article title.
This is the issue...

Hi Actano

This wouldn't be too tricky - i would word it as "Adding an autocomplete feed to article fields in plugin forms", and while we're at it what about blogs or indeed blog posts? razz

Pages, Groups and Users already have these autocomplete lists set up, so it should be too daunting to add more. (sorry i can't take any more on at the moment)

Yes, thats right!.. "Adding an autocomplete feed to article fields in plugin forms" could be a good solution.
I will study the case.
Thanks a lot
