Hard code next prev block

Permalink 1 user found helpful
Hello.
I am wondering how to hard code this nice block into a template so it can't be edited or removed by an Editor.
Is there a way to do this ?
I am quite new to concrete5 and didn't understand all the relations between the different functions and classes yet.

Thanks for a hint.

Cheers,
pureTest

There is an addon called "Designer Content" by the prolific @jordanlev that works very well for simple blocks and as an intro to creating your own. Search for it in the marketplace. Good luck.

Got that one already, thanks a lot.
Solved the problem with a stack though and limited the permissions to "read" for the editors of the pages.

Now I am wondering how to make the prev-next block loop through all pages, not only the ones on the same level.
Can't get it to work.
Do I have to create a new filter for that ?

Thanks again, mkly.

Cheers,

Yes you can add each block hardcoded in a theme:
<div id="prevnext">
<?php  
 $bt_main = BlockType::getByHandle('next_previous');    
 $bt_main->controller->nextLabel=t('next text');
 $bt_main->controller->previousLabel=t('previous text ');
 $bt_main->controller->parentLabel=t('show parent text');
 $bt_main->controller->showArrows=1; // set to 0 when false
 $bt_main->controller->loopSequence=0; // set to 1 if true
 $bt_main->controller->orderBy='display_desc'; // display_desc, display_asc etc...
 $bt_main->render('view'); // default block
 //$bt_main->render('templates/youtemplatename');
 ?>
</div>

I'd like to add one property, that can also be useful: linkStyle.
With this you can control if you would like to see the page name or "next" and "previous" links.

So the full example would be
<div id="prevnext">
<?php  
 $bt_main = BlockType::getByHandle('next_previous');
 $bt_main->controller->linkStyle='page_name'; // next_previous or page_name
 $bt_main->controller->nextLabel=t('next text');
 $bt_main->controller->previousLabel=t('previous text ');
 $bt_main->controller->parentLabel=t('show parent text');
 $bt_main->controller->showArrows=1; // set to 0 when false
 $bt_main->controller->loopSequence=0; // set to 1 if true
 $bt_main->controller->orderBy='display_desc'; // display_desc, display_asc etc...
 $bt_main->render('view'); // default block
 //$bt_main->render('templates/youtemplatename');
 ?>
</div>

Hi,
I do this. hard code with thumbnails (page atributte):

<?php
//initialize the block
$next_prev = BlockType::getByHandle('next_previous');
//set your options
$next_prev->controller->orderBy = 'display_asc';
$next_prev->controller->loopSequence = true;
$next_prev->controller->excludeSystemPages = true;
//get the pages
$prev_page = $next_prev->controller->getPreviousCollection();
$prev_title = $prev_page->getCollectionName();
if($prev_page->getAttribute('attribute_handle')) {
$prev_thumb = $prev_page->getAttribute('attribute_handle')->getVersion()->getRelativePath();
};
$next_page = $next_prev->controller->getNextCollection();
$next_title = $next_page->getCollectionName();

Using Next/Prev on a Product Detail page in eCommerce, but it only goes to the first and last products. How come it won't cycle through them all?

I was having this same issue and eventually realized that I needed to set orderBy to be display_asc.

$bt_main->controller->orderBy='display_asc';
