Journaling Module

The News on my own site and at Indexhibit.org are driven by this Journaling module. It's a simple way to keep a journal or a log on your site. You can have more than one setup on your site, as well (perhaps specific to more than one project).

Download at Github (14.01.2018)

Setup:

You need to be updated to v2.1.5 before you can use this feature.

1. Unzip. Folders indicate where you should place files/folders on your site. Backup your site first!
2. When you login to your studio you should see "Collections" next to Indexhibit at the top - this means the Collections module is setup and ready to go.
3. Create (if necessary) a section (Admin > Sections) where you will publish the Journal on your site.
4. Go to Collections and Create a New Collection (choose the above section).
5. Go back to Sections and edit your section - changing the Section Object to "collect_journal" (it's followed by an ID number which corresponds to your collection.
6. Go to Exhibits and edit the Section Top page:
-- choose "Journal" for the Exhibit Format
-- Publish (you do not need to enter text on this page)
7. Go to Collections, choose your Collection, create and publish an entry.
8. You should now have published a Journal index and your first entry.

I hope I didn't miss anything - let me know if I did.
