Inline Widgets and Contact Form PluginPosted in AtomSite, Manager by JarrettV on 2/20/2010 1:21:00 PM - CST
The next version of AtomSite will include support for inline widgets. An inline widget is a widget that is activated by placing a widget include into the content of an entry. This allows all sorts of new scenarios such as polling widgets, dynamic content widgets, and a contact form widget.
Also, the next release of AtomSite will contain a contact form widget built-in as a core widget. This widget can be placed on every page at the workspace or collection scopes. However, with the new inline widget support, you can also place the widget on a single page.
I've detailed some of the development process as a Plugin Developments Basic Tutorial.
This widget can add an annotation (comment) to your contact page and/or send an email to you each time the form is posted. The settings can be configured for each workspace in the AtomSite Manager.
Note: most of the settings are only required if you are sending an email as it needs all the email server information.
Or, you can configure them directly in the service.config file under the atom:workspace node:
