The module requires no configuration. Installation adds the Tools > TODOs page in AdminCental. The ToDoSearchList class extends WebsiteSearchList and returns a list of pages on which a
todo property is found.
You can add a
todo list field to any tab of a page dialog. The page properties dialog is typically most appropriate.
todocontrol to all page properties dialogs.
- In Templating Kit > Dialog Definitions
todofield as shown below. The field must be named
todobecause the system expects this name.
- Open the dialog and fill in the to-do message.
- View all to-dos for the site in Tools > TODO.
Extend the functionality by rendering the to-do message in a clearly visible box on the page. This way editors can immediately spot the task as soon as they open the page that has a to-do. Render the box only on the author instance, not on public!
