Hello,
I have a very complex and special request for you.
My website is an aviation community website.
So I would like that the users can add their aircraft models on my website. For this, I would like a page a little bit as the Topics page but I would like that the user must complete some predefined fields as 'Airline', 'Scale", "Type of aircraft', 'Livery' and of course their can upload some pictures to illustrate these models infos (see the attached image).
Do you think possible to give me some tips and give me help to create a page a little bit like this ?
I would like that each user can edit and create some models and that these models can be appear on the user's profile.
PS : I already use Topics so is it possible to create a very new page ?

Thanks so much for your understanding, your kindness and your answer.
Best regards,
Yann Arnould

Hi,
Unfortunately you cannot add fields to Topics natively, anyway to add a field you can follow these steps:
1) Create column in table #__jsnsocial_topics for example "new_field" (VARCHAR)
2) Create the input field in the html
- Access to Admin Panel (http://docs.easy-profile.com/index.php/article/social-network-configuration)
- Go to Theme Manager
- Choose "SocialNetwork Theme"
- Choose the file to override from left menu (Topics->create.ctp)
- Click on button "Copy" and copy it in "Blue Theme"
- Come back to Theme Manager and choose "Blue Theme"
- You will see your override to customize.
- In this new file you can add something like this after line 75 to create the new input
<li><label><?php echo __('New Field')?></label>
<?php echo $this->Form->text('new_field', array('value' => $topic['Topic']['new_field'])); ?>
</li>

3) Delete folder "cache" at /plugins/jsn/socialnetwork/app/tmp/

NOTE 1: You can do this for each new fields
NOTE 2: this modification will be still active when you update the plugin in future (layout changes is a theme override, so it will be not rewritten)

This is a table in your database. You can add a column with a tool like phpMyAdmin, normally it is provided by your hosting provider.

Hi,
after some research, unfortunately this is not possible with a simple way.
Anyway you can use the already built-in uploader and customize the view to show image where you prefer. The view file is Topics->view.ctp

Is it possible (inside the create page) to display a drop down select field with some selections (ex : the list of the airlines and the user select which airline it is). Then I would like to display it inside the view.ctp (ex : Airline : {airline from the drop down select field).
Thanks for your answer and your kindness.

Yes, this is possible, like my previous reply (https://www.easy-profile.com/support/create-a-special-page-for-a-collection-part.html#reply-25073) you can add a dropdown field with a code like:
<li>
<label><?php echo __('New Field')?></label>
<?php echo $this->Form->select( 'tags', array('airline 1','airline 2','airline 3'), array( 'value' => $topic['Topic']['new_field'] ) ); ?>
</li>

Hi,
If I put in create.cp:

<li>
<label><?php echo __('New Field')?></label>
<?php echo $this->Form->select( 'tags', array('airline 1','airline 2','airline 3'), array( 'value' => $topic['Topic']['new_field'] ) ); ?>
</li>

and in view.ctp:

<?php echo $topic['Topic']['new_field']?>

It displays the number of the selection (ex : airline 1 -> 0, airline 2 -> 1, airline 3 -> 2).
Do you have the solution to display 'airline 1', 'airline 2' and 'airline 3' instead of '0', '1', '2' ?
Thanks.

It works perfectly! Thanks.
I also would like to hide the title field and I would like to auto-create a title with {aircraft-type} {airline} {scale}.
Ex : Airbus A380-800 Emirates 1/200
Is it possible ?

Hi,
it is a required fields so the best way to do this is to hide title with CSS and fill it via javascript when you change values like aircraft-type,...

Hi you can do this for example by adding following code at the end of file create.ctp

<script>
jQuery(document).ready(function($){
$('#title').closest('li').hide(); // Hide Title field
$('#new_field1,#new_field2,#new_field3').change(function(){
$('#title').val( $('#new_field1').val() + ' ' + $('#new_field2').val() + ' ' +$('#new_field3').val() );
});
});
</script>
Where new_field1,new_field2 and new_field3 are the column name of fields airline, type and scale
