Workspacer version 0.4.0 for Symphony CMS version 2.5+

Workspacer allows files in the Workspace folder to be managed and edited. It also restores the ability, pre Symphony 2.4, to edit Page XSL templates from Blueprints->Pages.


The folder needs to be named "workspacer". Install in the usual way for a Symphony extension.


Mostly self evident. On the editor page, files can be saved using Ctrl + s or Cmd + s or Ctrl + Alt + s when the browser's focus is on the editing area.


On Symphony's Preferences page there are options to change some of the editor's properties.

Browser Compatibility.

Workspacer will not work fully on Internet Explorer version 9 or lower.


Version 0.4.0

  • This is a bug-fix release.

Version 0.3.0

  • The filename box has been removed. When saving a new file the editor will prompt you for a name.
  • There is a new save-as button.
