One of our clients recently came to us with an interesting problem. When end users type content into a rich text field, double quotes, single quotes and apostrophes are not “smart.” That is, the quotes and apostrophes are straight instead of curly — typographically speaking, they are inch and feet characters.
An editor might type this:
- J. R. R. Tolkien wrote "The Lord of the Rings," a trilogy of novels that serve as a sequel to Tolkien's "The Hobbit."
But really want this:
- J. R. R. Tolkien wrote “The Lord of the Rings,” a trilogy of novels that serve as a sequel to Tolkien’s “The Hobbit.”
Here's how we created a script to automate search and replace for curly quotes and implemented an easy-to-use button in the client’s CMS to run the task.
With the release of the new Gutenberg editor in 2018, WordPress alienated some users but continues to lead in the CMS space, currently at a peak of 60% market share. Though most of our clients are on enterprise platforms like eZ Platform, some continue to run complex websites with WordPress. In this post, we'll peek under the hood to see how WordPress handles content classes and field types and we'll use that knowledge to add complex field types of our own.
As a library or library system, you might have well-defined feature requirements for various digital systems such as the online catalogue, various eResources, or even in-library WiFi. However, what about the public-facing website, which can be the first and sometimes most frequent interaction that patrons have with you? Here's a handy library CMS website platform features checklist, whether you're looking for a new website or evaluating your existing one.
