Do you have some feature in mind that you'd love to see in Couch? Let us know.

Hi All,

Couple of things I think would be very useful in the Admin area are:

Ability to define what fields show when viewing a list of clonal entries, i.e. rather than just title and folder name, if we could see custom fields like "Condition - NEW, USED" and also filter the view of entries by those, also author name if possible?

I'd still love to see a search box here to search for entries.

The ability to define how many results show per clonable page, 20,50,100 etc

The custom list view and custom page view is achievable, I can't quite recall the details but if you read through the documentation on databound forms, you should find what you're looking for.

As for the search box, I too wouldn't mind this.

Additionally a way to list columns by "asc" or "desc", as can be seen in windows explorer when clicking on "name", "date modified", "title" or "#".

Lastly, after implementing the new User Management System I realized I have too many templates in the back end, a great idea would be to group them up say... All member related templates can be grouped under MEMBERS, where the background-color can also be set for each group, ofcourse clicking on the group title would unfold the group's content... (The template titles)
I'll send an image of what I mean as soon as I get on a PC.
I'm not primitive, My time machine just malfunctioned in your era.
As can be seen, the groups are colour coded, everything under the members module maintains the same colour. (I wish I could place this module underneath Couch's USERS tab! Or fuse them into one, why not) and everything under a different group is coloured accordingly.
Also within the same group, background colours can be assigned as I have at the bottom of the image, to differentiate between legal document pages and general website pages.

The members group can be collapsed just as well as the "Website Data" group, ofcourse the current page you are viewing would be indicated with that triangle pointy thingy next to "Members" :)
And collapsible tabs are indicated by the double arrows on the far left, also if they are currently expanded or collapsed..

sir, can you teach me how to make menu like yours?
thx in advance
As soon as possible!

Hehehe I'll take that as a compliment on my graphics work.
This is just an illustration I did on my computer, we cannot "yet" do this in couch as KK is yet to read this post and implement my idea ;)
Lol

Changing the aesthetics and functionality of the admin panel can be achieved partly by using CSS. We have changed the sidebar into a navigation bar which scrolls on mobiles (using the <cms:editable type='message'> to inject html and js.

Its a long way around but it works by editing the styles.css file found in Couch -> Theme.

We have made custom themes and sizing arrangements for small text inputs like 'featured song' which 'declutters' the admin panel for us successfully.

Hope this helps.

Very impressive indeed, @wizardradio :)

Any chance you could share the code with our community?
I'd like to see you do that with my many many many sidebar links!!

cholasimmons - The beauty of the code is that the overflow of the sidebar links can be scrolled on mobile. There is no reason to believe you couldn't implement this code and include overflow-x:scroll; for desktop implementation too!

I have included the CSS file. To make the mobile aspect of the admin panel work, it is important to include <cms:editable type="message" name="banner"><meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width"></cms:editable> in every template you want on the admin panel mobile version.

I am sure there is a better way to do this but this is the only workaround I've found so far.
