Q: Can I Use v1 apps in DMXReady CMS v2?|
A: Yes you can. However, this will require some minor modification to your v1 apps.
DMXReady CMS v2 is designed in a way so that you can still use your DMXReady v1 apps in CMS v2. However, since CMS v2 has a quite different core architecture, you need to modify the v1 app a little bit so it can function 100% in the newly created page using CMSv2.
How to include v1 apps in your CMS v2
Lets say that you want to include your Photo Gallery Manager application into CMS v2 so you can have a Photo Gallery in your website. To do this, you can do the following steps (Please note that this steps using an example domain and it is assumed that you installed the Photo Gallery Manager & CMS v2 in the original form):
If you look at your newly created page, e.g.: http://www.yourdomain.com/dmxreadyv2/cms/cms.asp?page=photo-gallery, you will see that the v1 Photo Gallery Manager is already embedded into the page. It's that simple!
However, you will notice that once you click on the question, the url in your browser's address bar becomes: http://www.yourdomain.com/dmxreadyv2/cms/cms.asp?ItemID=13 for example, which is incorrect since it is suppose to be: http://www.yourdomain.com/dmxreadyv2/cms/cms.asp?page=photo-gallery&ItemID=13. This happens simply because the Photo Gallery Manager list page (or any front-facing v1 file) does not have the "?page=photo-gallery" yet on the link. So in this case, you want to do the following steps:
By now, your Photo Gallery page should function normally inside CMSv2 application.
