Simplify Your Web extensions have a very extensive array of options when it comes to selecting articles, contacts or weblinks, so you can really target a specific set of items to present to the visitors of your sites. I have just added to the list of filters the possibility to use custom fields as selectors.

Any Simplify Your Web extension that relies on the lib_syw external library

Once in a while users come across a blank screen on the public side of their website. Rarely they may have the same experience on some administrator console pages.

While this could be a bug introduced by the latest extension update, it actually is most likely an issue with the external library that is necessary for most of our extensions to work.

Any Simplify Your Web extension that has an output display

After installing any of the Simplify Your Web extensions (or after moving the site to a different server with different settings), some users may experience issues with the extension's HTML output. No matter the setup, the output does not look anything like any of the demos or screenshots that the user has seen...

Feelings of disappointment occur (it should work from the start, right?). What is really happening?

This tutorial will help you diagnose the issue (or confirm it) and guide you to help you fix it.

It is possible to add custom information for each individual contact in Trombinoscope Contacts Pro, in addition to the information fields you can already select.

To achieve this, we take advantage of 3 events that are built in the extension.

With this tutorial, you will be able to add a new field type following the examples available in the sample plugin 'My Fields', which includes:

  • a field type that outputs a link,
  • a field type that outputs addresses on one line only,
  • a field type that outputs a list of custom fields values of Text type,
  • a field type that outputs values of a repeatable custom field made of text fields,
  • a field type that outputs the last 3 articles created by a contact.
