How to extend helpers ?

Answer :

How to extend controllers or models ?

Answer :

How to create a new theme or modify front end views ?

Answer :

How to modify admin panel views ?

Answer :

We've used codeigniter version 2.0.3 as framework. As you know codeigniter basically is a MVC frame work. For whizbiz we have used the HMVC version of Codeigniter. The H of HMVC stands for Hierarchical. In normal MVC model controllers, models and views are organized under ROOT/application directory. But in HMVC, there is one more level "Modules" under ROOT/application directory.

Suppose you have a module "admin" under this modules directory. Now controllers, models and views for this module can be placed under "ROOT/application/modules/admin/controllers","ROOT/application/modules/admin/models" and "ROOT/application/modules/admin/views" directory.

Now suppose there is a controller named as "test" under this controller directory and there is a function called "hello" in this controller. From browser you can access this function like site_url.'/admin/test/hello'. Here admin is the module name, test is the controller name and hello is the function name. If the controller and module name are the same then it can be typed once. Like if the controller name is "admin" then you can access this hello function like site_url.'/admin/hello'. Read more about HMVC form here https://bitbucket.org/wiredesignz/codeigniter-modular-extensions-hmvc

Language Routing:

For passing selected lang with the url we've modified codeigniters default routing. Now the first segment after index.php represents the selected lang key. Like for a sample url "http://whizbiz.webhelios.com/index.php/en/show/cat/1" there "http://whizbiz.webhelios.com/index.php" is the site url and "en" is the language key. "en" stands for English language. You can use any two character ISO code for any language. If this segement is empty then default language selected from admin panel will be used. For changing the basic routing rule we've modified "ROOT/application/third_party/MX/Router.php". We have also override the site_url() function on URL helper. You can find this extended function on the helper file "ROOT/application/helpers/MY_url_helper.php".

Helpers:

All the helpers used in whizbiz are placed under "ROOT/system/helpers" directory with the prefix "dbc". If you see any function in any controller or models or views which is called without through object then it's a helper function. You can then find that function in any of these helpers files.

Extending whizbiz or writing custom codes:

How to extend controllers?

For any controllers you will see there is two files under controllers directory. Like for admin controller there will be two files named as

  1. admin.php
  2. admin_core.php

under the controllers directory. All the core functions are written on this "_core.php" files. If you need to change any function please extend the same function on the other file. For next version updates we will update only these "_core.php" file. So if you write any code or make any changes to these files, they will be loast upon update. So please write your custom codes on normal files.

How to extend the models?

These is same as the controllers.
How to extend views:

All the views for front end is managed as themes. Themes are located under "ROOT/application/modules/themes/views/" directory. If you want to change any view or want to make custom theme, then follow the below procedures.

  1. Copy the default directory under "ROOT/application/modules/themes/views/"
  2. Rename it like as you wish.(No spaces)
  3. Edit the NEW_DIR/assets/config.xml file and change the text within <name></name> tag
  4. Now from admin panel > menu > themes , you can find the new theme you just make. Click the active button and activate the theme.
  5. Now you can change any views like you wish.

We will update only default theme codes for future updates. So if you make any changes to these views under default directory, they will be lost. So please follow the above process to make a theme and update the views.

How to extend helpers?

As said before all the helpers for whizbiz located under "ROOT/system/helpers" directory. But please don't update these files if you need any changes. Extending a helper file is very much simple. Suppose you want to extend is_installed() function on dbcbase_helper.php, then make another file named as "MY_dbcbase_helper.php" under "ROOT/application/helpers" directory and write the function with same name there. This will override the original helper file. We will update the helpers under "ROOT/system/helpers" for future updates.
Where the css, js and images located?
For front end all the css,js and images are located within "THEME/assets/" directory. For admin panel all these are located under "ROOT/assets/admin" directory.
