XML structured contents are a central building block in any modern OpenCms application. The configuration of the XML structured content editor therefore is an important step to provide an ergonomic interface for content managers working with OpenCms every day.
Widgets are one important aspect of the XML content editor. For almost every standard widget, OpenCms provides configuration options that can be fine-tuned for specific project requirements. This session will present tipps and tricks as well as advanced options for commonly used widgets.
Introduced in this session will be the new enhanced image gallery widget available in OpenCms 7.5. This allows on-the-fly image manipulation with resizing and cropping of image parts, as well as image selection based on categories in addition to galleries.
OpenCms 7.5 also features a new mechanism for grouping input areas in the XML content editor into several "tabs".
We will show how to use this new "tabbed" pages in the XML content editor and also point out some other less commonly used editor configuration options.
