TITAN CMS - Working with the Content Picker

You can work with images, links and upload files in the Content Picker.

Titan Images & Titan Links & Upload

 

A new content picker has been added for v6.2 that provides the following benefits:

  1. Fast - The user interface should load faster.
  2. Search - The user interface is search-driven not tree driven.
  3. Re-useable - The user interface will be used in data editing on display side as well as in Titan workstation.
  4. Power Users - Support users who search for DocID, URL, Path links.
  5. Less Clutter - No folders returned in Search, folders are not used in linking so no extra results.
  6. Upload any file - picker may filter out file types that don't apply for that column.
  7. Display Side Upload - file size 25 MB max.
  8. Workstation Upload - file size 100 MB max.

Hints - Observations:

  1. When working with a large data set, the scroll bar might seem to stop and after a while jumps up, this is to illustrate more results are below.
  2. The search results will always be sorted initially by last modified date (secondary sort is on Name)
  3. Searching while the tree is open is very different than when it is closed.  When the tree is open the search is looking to select the first item in the tree that it finds that is a match. So it can’t find things that aren’t listed in the tree. 
  4. When using the filter drop down, the next time in the picker the last selection for types dropdown won't retain selection.
  5. When the tree was open on the last use, the search term isn’t saved.  Instead, the location selected in the tree is saved.  Since we bypass the loading of the tree, it makes sense that nothing is in the search box.
  6. A Hidden Globe or folder, disabled in main tree will not be disabled in Content Picker but is not able to be linked to.  *The tree will always show folders/globes regardless of whether they are hidden or not.  This is okay because you can’t link to a folder; they are there to provide organization.  The items you can link to are the items that are listed in the grid, and you should not see hidden items in the grid.
  7. In general, a globe that is hidden should show in the tree because it might have children that are not hidden that could be linked to. 
    1. Linked Pages show in the tree, but they are not able to be linked to.
    2. Hidden child items will not show in list, they are not able to be linked.
  8. Global Parameter still requires configuration to link to data records.  Data items can’t show in the list unless they support linking, which includes setting up a Data Detail page for them (/display/router.aspx?DocID=###&DataID=)
