@crispy68

Thanks for the great extension...

The only thing that would enhance this further, would be the ability to make the bullet list 'clickable'. I have a web page where a list of PDF documents are stored in Archives, and it would be a great feature to display this document list, and be able to click to download, or view, these documents.

Any chance you might be considering enhancements?

Thanks!!

@MGD4me,

Are you wanting the entire bullet point text to be clickable or just a portion of the text to be clickable? Initially my thoughts is it will be easier to make all of the text clickable versus the other.

I could certainly look into seeing what I could do although I don't have a time frame I could give you. Possibly within the next week or two. :wink: Send me your email and I will send you a copy for testing! you can email me at ron at wizbangwebdesign dot com

Wow... very quick response !!

I am the webmaster for a small non-profit hobby club. We keep a number of reference documents on-line in PDF format, which a member can download whenever needed.

My hope, was to create a short bullet list of Titles, or Topics, so that a member could click on any one item individually, and view that document. Something like:

* Member List
* Policies
* Upcoming Events


Okay, so I just made up those topics, but it is an example of the style I think I was hoping for. Any underlined topic could be clicked on to retrieve it's corresponding document. Similar to creating a link while writing an email. The 'link' could be either a file on the host server, or to an external URL. I don't need the URL option myself.

Hopefully I've described my thoughts well enough to be decoded!!

Thanks for listening...

@MGD4me,

I actually had some time today and believe I may have it working. If you send me your email, I will send you a copy to test out. If everything is working, I will post a link here for others to download.

@crispy68

I've now had a few days to use the new and improved extension, and as stated earlier... it works like a champ!

My only observation, and it is noted in the documentation, is that the style of font cannot be changed in the final web page, although it does appear to have an effect in the construction page. I'm finding the font size to be a bit too small, when the published page is viewed in a browser.

Any chance either the font style could 'stick' when changed, or hard-coded to a size of 14, say?

Thanks again!

@MGD4me,

Thought I had this in the help docs but will double check later today. The font size, color, etc. is controlled using the style manager. Simply create a style in the style manager using the 'class' name in the extension (default = 'bullet') and adjust your settings in the style manager. This will allow you to have different size text in breakpoints.
My only observation, and it is noted in the documentation, is that the style of font cannot be changed in the final web page, although it does appear to have an effect in the construction page.
Within the extension you can change the size, font, color, etc. so you can visually see, during construction, what it will look like when published. This doesn't affect the final published page...the style in the style manager does. I know it's sorta an odd workaround but it does work.

Unfortunately, within the ext. builder, I don't see a way of controlling different size fonts in breakpoints within the extension itself so it uses the style manager for this. Ultimately, I would love to be able to control the size, color, font, etc. within the extension itself for each breakpoint.

Anyone that wants to improve it is welcome. Just email me. :D
