If all works well, we would like to deliver presentations on plugin development to members of Custom Dev. forum.

This is preliminary call for questions from developers or just regular users of this forum section.

List your questions in reply.

Thanks in advance.

I would like to know more about the process of adding a plugin to the new SEO feature. I have been able to search and gather up some of the bits and pieces of code but have not put it all together yet.  I would like to learn how to do this for my plugins.


I also think we need to do a course on getting plugins mobile ready.  I am working on mine now, but i know alot of developers either dont do it because they dont know how or they are afraid to ask how.  I feel that with all the requests on the forum from users for mobile supported plugins, this would be a great idea.  That way developers have less excuses not to do so and more mobile ready plugins means more sales and more happy users. And that means more happy people using and bragging about Oxwall.


Im sure i can come up with more but lets take this one thing at a time :)

Thanks so much Aliya for opening this door for us support wise, and also in showing everyone that what i have always said is true.. The wheels might turn slow at Oxwall but they do turn and things do happen when they can happen, and this is a great way to show this.  I feel this will be a great addition to the forum overall and lead to more worthwhile projects and new deveopers in the store. 


I think the lack of questions right now is that alot of store devs dont check this section or have not noticed it yet.  I cant get a message out to everyone (too many) but i will send a PM out to the 10 or so devs that i know of.

+1 dave a plugin must have SEO options and it must be work with mobile site while core has a basic mobile version , without mobile friendly plugins mobile version is useless . i have seen many customers .. among all almost 85% of users are not using mobile version site just because many important plugins which are not developed for mobile site . 


also for theme developers .


individual theme master page require for some core pages [ join page , profile page , password reset page , maintenance page ] to build better theme for oxwall .

Well said dave and Sprintally Solutions.


@Aliya, some of my biggest challenges in my early days was how to use Tags and form element SuggestField. Especially the SuggestField, it's rarely used on the platform.


I think they can be added to the Skeleton plugin.

Hi! It would be nice to know how the CMS works with DB. Unfortunately I don't have time to learn PHP for 100% and check all the code. I'm working with Python + DB so I would like to build some daemons and plugins (maybe API) for oxwall. I'm working on github, so all my work can be used for free. I just need to know how (for example) the newsfeed works with DB, how the Video/Photo plugin works with DB etc.

If I put an image in the newsfeed and I add a text with links every format of the text and the links are removed in the newsfeed, when I post it.

How can I change the system, so that the format and the links won't be removed?
