We have a requirement that when page is opened with query parameter wcmmode=(disabled | preview), then links on that page should also open in same mode.

Does anyone know how to achieve this?

Its working as expected for wcmmode=preview, but for wcmmode=disabled all the links on that page are opening in preview mode.

Any pointers would be helpful.

Thanks!

I think the below design should help you

You need to rewrite all href link on the page by appending wcmmode=disabled,

  • Create a Transformation class and extend it from the org.apache.cocoon.xml.sax.AbstractSAXPipe
  • In the startlement iterate all attributes of element
  • Find href link
  • Check if it contains query string with wcmmode=disabled
  • if so then rewrite url
  • finally assign back to href

Check below sample code :

   public void startElement(String uri, String loc, String raw, Attributes attributes) throws SAXException {

        AttributesImpl attrs = new AttributesImpl(attributes);

     

            for (int i = 0; i < attrs.getLength(); i++) {

                String name = attrs.getLocalName(i); 

                if(name.equals("href"))

                {

                    String url = attrs.getValue(i);

                    // write an if condition to check url endwith wcmmode or not

                    / if so then rewrite th url something like below

                    url = "http://keysandstrokes.info?wcmmode=disabled";

                    //finally set value back to the href attribute

                    attrs.setValue(i, url);                        

                }

            }

       

        super.startElement(uri, loc, raw, attrs);

       

    }

Example: you can use it as it is by applying your logic in the start element

Approach 2:

You can also do this using Jquery, but you must have knowledge of it. Using Jquery find out all href links and rewrite it, this is simple than approach 1 and it will not put any burden on the server as it is authoring environment so we can consider this. the Jquery should load at end of the page once the entire DOM is loaded.

You need to load Jquery only in author mode don't execute on publish mode.

Approach 3 :

Check is there any OOTB functionality available or not, if not then try above approaches.

Actually, I feel this is also a good requirement without replicating to publish environment you can check it on author instance itself, this is very useful when you want to make authoring productivity high

You can try out Rajas approaches if its a real need. Recommend not to do such customization as you have a publish whose job is to render your final content . Its always best to verify content of any working page in preview mode and then publish it and verify the final content in your publish.

As other community members point out - this is not OOTB.

Why you need to do this ? In author if you want to simulate something similar, one quick way to do it is removing editor.html from your URL . Something like http://localhost:4502/content/website/en_US/home.html . This will open all the corresponding links in preview mode only
