    Customize columns and data in admin’s tables 

    In next version of OSClass we’ll be introducing some changes on the admin side. Don’t worry, everything will look and behave the same, but it will be more flexible for plugin developers to customize the information displayed. The changes affect to items, users, alerts, comments, media and page tables, and will allow plugin developers to add and remove columns. For example, the cars attributes plugin will show the make and model on the listings’ table, making it easier to manage your listings.


    Example code to modify the columns:

    function columns_items_table_header($table) {
    /* $table is a pointer to the table and not a copy, so the original DataTable is being used
    * USAGE :
    * $table->addColumn("my_identifier", __("Name of the colum", "columns"), $priority);
    * $priority is an integer from 1 to 10, being 1 the first (left) and 10 the last (right)
    $table->addColumn("my_own_first_column", __("My First Column", "columns"), 1);
    $table->addColumn("my_own_last_column", __("My Last Column", "columns"), 10);
    $table->addColumn("my_own_column", __("My Own Column", "columns"));
    function columns_items_row($row, $aRow) {
    /* $row is the current row of the table (formatted)
    * $aRow is the raw data of the row (in this case, an item)
    * USAGE :
    * $row['column_identifier'] = "Cell text";
    $row['my_own_first_column'] = "First (pk_i_id: ".$aRow['pk_i_id'].")";
    $row['my_own_last_column'] = "Last (s_secret: ".$aRow['s_secret'].")";
    $row['my_own_column'] = "Data (fk_i_category_id: ".$aRow['fk_i_category_id'].")";
    return $row;

    As you could see, it’s very easy and intuitive.

    Redirect to a landing page after adding a new listing 

    In certain cases, you want to redirect to a specific page after adding a new listing. You can get that result using the posted_item hook. Example:

        function redirect_to_landing($item) {
            header('Location: ' . osc_static_page_url()); exit;
        osc_add_hook('posted_item', 'redirect_to_landing');
        // add this code in the functions.php of your theme

    The code from above would redirect to a static page that has publish_ok as a slug. So, remember that you will have to create first that static page.

    The next example will redirect to the listing page:

        function redirect_to_landing($item) {
            View::newInstance()->_exportVariableToView('item', $item);
            header('Location: ' . osc_item_url()); exit;
        osc_add_hook('posted_item', 'redirect_to_landing');
        // add this code in the functions.php of your theme

    The hook posted_item it’s available since the version 2.0.

      Thanks, it works

    • Stiffe 4:58 pm on October 9, 2014 Permalink | Reply

      In the first example, what do you mean with “a slug”? (need explanation)

      I have tried to make a static page in osclass adminpanel, with “publish_ok” as an internal name
      and inserted that code to my actual theme’s functions.php.

      And I have also tried the second alternative.

      None of them are working with Boxer theme.

    Admin Menu example 

    There is an example of how to add new menu sections and submenu to your sidebar admin menu.

    • This example adds two menu sections and one submenu with external link.
    • The menu entries have a customized icon for normal and compact menu mode

    NOTE: Install like a plugin.

    Plugin structure:

    • example_adminmenu/index.php
    • example_adminmenu/ball.png
    • example_adminmenu/ballCompact.png
    • example_adminmenu/twitter.png
    • example_adminmenu/twitterCompact.png

      Can you help me to hide or rename menus, add custom menus and more in admin(dashboard) page?

      • garciademarina 8:11 am on August 3, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        Hi @Lalita,

        If you want to remove menu or/and submenu sections form admin menu you can take a look at hAdminMenu.php helper,
        You can remove with osc_remove_admin_menu_page(ID_MENU) the menu entry ID_MENU and all submenus with parent menu id ID_MENU.
        You can remove with osc_remove_admin_submenu_page(ID_SUBMENU) only one submenu with ID_SUBMENU as id.

        If you need to update some data in AdminMenu, you can remove the section and add it again with the proper changes.

        You can see the default menus and submenus at oc-includes/osclass/classes/AdminMenu.php (function init.php) It can help you.

      Hi, with new version 3.2, this example has stopped working.

      We should do changes in the CSS to adjust.

      My question is for other variables that are not in use in the example.

      Function “osc_add_admin_menu_page”:
      icon_url and position

      Any idea of using it?

    Pagination in v3.0 

    In v3.0 there are some changes regarding the pagination class. Now it’s a <ul> structure, so the pagination would be something like this:

        <li><span class="searchPaginationSelected list-first">1</span></li>
        <li><a rel="nofollow" href="http://domain.tld/category/2" class="searchPaginationNonSelected">2</a></li>
        <li><a rel="nofollow" href="http://domain.tld/category/3" class="searchPaginationNonSelected">3</a></li>
        <li><a rel="nofollow" href="http://domain.tld/category/4" class="searchPaginationNext">4</a></li>
        <li><a rel="nofollow" href="http://domain.tld/category/5" class="searchPaginationLast list-last">5</a></li>

    Furthermore, now the selected page it’s not a link. The main reason it is to not mislead google, because we were linking to the same page. So, we’re using a <span> tag instead of link .To sum up, remember to modify properly your css to show in a line the pagination.

    For example: .paginate ul li { display: inline; }

    You must upgrade this in your themes in order to work properly in v3.0.
