Widgets are like mini-applications that you can embed in Web pages.
Perforce Chronicle comes with a set of default widgets, and you can add your own widgets to
this set. Widgets are displayed in a dedicated region specified by the
current theme, and you can configure the order (top to bottom) in which they are displayed.
Widgets are provided by modules. To add or remove widgets from Chronicle you need to
have appropriate privileges in the application as well as access to the filesystem where
modules are stored. Please see Section 19.4, “Adding and Removing Modules” for more details.
Chronicle ships with the following widgets:
- Associated Categories
The Associated Categories widget is designed to display any categories associated
with the currently displayed content entry. Each displayed category is linked so
that users can discover additional content in each category.
- Image Widget
The Image Widget allows you to display an image; either one that has already been
added to Chronicle, or from a remote web site.
- Menu Widget
The Menu Widget allows you to display a menu, or a subset of a menu. You can choose
the menu, the starting point within its hierarchy, limit the depth of entries to
be displayed, and limit the total number of entries.
- Recent Content
The Recent Content widget lists the most recently created or modified content
entries, up to a limit you specify.
- Search Widget
The Search Widget provides a search interface so that users can locate content
entries based on the text they contain.
- Text Widget
The Text Widget allows you to place arbitrary text on a page.
