Compatible with 1.4

Mar 7, 2012 at 6:38 PM

Is Contrib.Chapters compatible with Orchard 1.4? It seems like maybe no. Getting build errors related to Orchard.Core.Routable. My guess is it's not going to work with AutoRoute. Is that right?

Forgot about this module. Yes indeed it needs some more love for 1.4.

Hahaha....oh, please don't forget about the humble Chapters Module! :-)

I'm relying on it to provide the paging functionality found here:

and here:

(next/previous links)

Based on this discussion with you:

I would be more than happy to submit a pull request, but updating this to work with AutoRoute is outside of my expertise.

This is in your expertise ... it should just be about changing the Migrations.cs and use Autoroute + Title, and define the default routes like the ones in the Blog module. Which means I should do it in 10 minutes ...

Well if anyone is still interested in getting this running on 1.4+, I've run into the same problems upgrading a bunch of sites from 1.3/1.2 and have made the relevant changes. You can find everything in a fork over at http://orchardchapters.codeplex.com/SourceControl/network/forks/kobowi/orchard14plus (there is a pull request in waiting as well). Works well on my sites, but any feedback is welcome!

It would be a shame if this module died off, my end users love it :)

Hi, I'm trying to use @kobowi 's orchard14plus fork with Orchard 1.6. Does anyone know if they are compatible?

I'm a newbie when it comes to Orchard, so I wasn't exactly sure how to install the module (I've installed modules from the gallery before, but not from source). I just downloaded the orchard14plus zip file, extracted it, and dumped its contents into Modules/Chapters on my site.

All seemed to be going well, the Chapters module showed up on the dashboard under "Modules" and I enabled it. But there is no "Table of Contents" widget or any other sign that the new module is working. Am I missing something?

Thanks for any assistance you can provide!

Since I notice that this module has only been sporadically maintained, I'm wondering if maybe I'm missing an obvious alternative.

Is there some other way to organize this type of content in Orchard? The Chapters module sounds perfect to me because I have a hierarchical set of pages that I would like to organize in a tree structure, with "next" and "previous" links connecting them.

I have been trying the Taxonomies module for the past week, but found that I can't make it do what I want. Specifically, though it provides a nice "tree" structure, I can't seem to control the order of the the sibling elements at a given level of the tree. This makes the documentation that I'm writing hard to read / use.

Actually the Taxonomy module should just work. The difference is that there is no navigation like you would expect, but this could be a nice addition to the module.
The other advantage of the taxonomy is that it could ne used to mix contents/articles like on this page for instance : http://www.asp.net/mvc

I don't have time to spend on this module though, we are in the release process of 1.7 ...

Sebastien, thank you for your reply -- I imagine you're very busy with the 1.7 release!

The asp.net/mvc site layout actually looks really great! I would love to replicate this basic layout on my site. Any general advice? And, are you sure the mvc site isn't using the Chapters module? The reason I ask, is that when I used F12 on the blue menu box, I see it is <div class="module-chapters">

I really like how when I click on an item in the blue menu on the left, the articles show up listed in a sensible order. For example, when I click on "3. Controllers and Routing" the first article is "Controller Basics". In my (very limited) experience with taxonomies, it seems to pull up the articles ordered by creation date, which means that the newer articles show up first, which is not necessary the best starting point for a reader. Is it possible to control the sort order with taxonomies?
