Plugin for the straight forward creation of a new digital article

The QuickDigitalArticle is one of those plugins that really help end-users to speed up their work. By reducing the amount of information to be filled in before the editor is open. So the Writer can concentrate on their actual task. The build in (re)naming logic will take care that the Title is used for the article and dossier name.

In the normal Aurora Editor, a user has to take several steps before he/she can start writing the article :

- Press the [Create New] button

- In the next dialog that will show up the ArticeTemplate needs to be choosen

- Then the full CreateArticle dialog appear. At least the article name needs to be filled in. But also other fields might need to be set correctly.

- Editor is openend

On itself it is not a real problem to fill in these steps, but when writer has to create a lot of content in a short time these repetative tasks start to add up.

When the article is created the name of the article is build from the username and a unique number. The user can already change the name when the create dialog is shown but there is some hidden logic in the QuickDigitalArticle plugin. 
When the article is created the name of the article is build from the username and a unique number. The user can already change the name when the create dialog is shown but there is some hidden logic in the QuickDigitalArticle plugin. The content of the ‘Title’ component is used to rename the Article and Dossier on the moment the article is closed. This automatic renaming will occur as long as the user does not change the name of the article using Properties

With the use of the QuickDigitalArticle the choice of the Article-Template determines most of the values used to create the article. This is all based on the configuration of the plugin. In the configuration of the plugin system-admin can specify the values for each dialog field and if the field needs to be editable by  the user (to overrule the default value).  Optionally fields can be hidden from the CreateDialog resulting in only those fields being shown that require user attention. For the user the actions drills down to:

– Press [Create New] button

- Select the Template you want to use

- The fields of the ‘Create Dialog’ are now pre-filled , use can click Create without further action.

- Editor is openend.

The name of the article is also pre-filled with the username and a unique number. Keep on reading about some handy logic around the article name. Depending on configuration a Dossier is automatically created for this article. This will speed up adding images to the article.
