Usage and Examples

Replacement for metadata-report macro

The Reporting Plugin can be used to replace the  metadata-report macro. 

For instance, the following metadata-report:

{metadata-report:Page,Metatest,Excerpt|link=Excerpt|label=meta}

Displays:

Page 

Metatest 

Excerpt 

P1 (http://) 

ABC 

Excerpt for P1 

Home (http://) 

 

Test Excerpt 

P2 (http://) 

 

 

This can be replaced with:

{report-table}
{content-reporter:types=page|labels=+meta}{content-reporter}
{report-column:title=Page}{report-info:title|link=true}{report-column}
{report-column:title=Metatest}{report-info:metadata:Metatest}{report-column}
{report-column:title=Excerpt (column header)}{report-info:excerpt|link=true}{report-column}
{report-table}

Displays:

Page 

Metatest 

Excerpt (column header) 

P1 (http://) 

ABC 

Excerpt for P1 (http://) 

Home (http://) 

 

Test Excerpt (http://) 

P2 (http://) 

 

 

Reporting App syntax is more verbose, but more powerful.
