I'd like to add an option to the page dialog drop down in the editor.
What I attempted to do was create a an override at /apps/wcm/core/content/editor/jcr:content/content/items/content/header/items/headerbar/items/pageinfopopover/items/pagestatus with sling:resourcetype seem to a custom pagestatus. This didn't seem to have any affect. This solution worked in 6.0.
Does anyone have any alternatives to accomplish this?
This is perhaps an unrelated quesiton, but I'd also like to implement an entirely separate editor for certain content types (to keep different actions for say, news stories v regular content pages, separate and help to with portability) if anyone can point me in the right direction for that.
Unfortunately, this isn't possible yet, unless you overlay the whole component.
This is a known limitation and will be addressed in AEM 6.2 - for now, I'd recommend you to add the action to the headerbar using the corresponding extension point. However, there's an issue with this extension point in AEM 6.1 GA, internally tracked by CQ-42843. We'll provide a publicly available fix for it in August through a Touch-optimized UI Update Package.
