TODO: Add information of each setting type:

  • logo
  • string
  • html
  • choice
  • relevance
  • info

should rather be:

Setting type Description Example usage
logo Logo to what? Put a logo in HTML flow near same than 'info' type
string Enter string, htmlOptions needed for HTML5 validation
float/integer Enter a number
html a textearea with html editor for admin user (or public user ?)
choice choice : select box, need htmlOptions (multiple) , can be multiple.
relevance Enter a relevance equation (this is basically a text editor++ think syntax highlighting / checking).
password A password : to fix : don't show it in HTML flow. for another tool (smtp/API ... etc)
info Show information in the settings
protected $settings = array(
  'PluginName_settingName' => array(
    'type' => 'info',
    'content' => 'This is some info'

We need a way to center info, or style it better by default. Also, it should use Bootstrap form-horizontal, the labels are not centered vertically as should.

Already can be done App()->getConfig("version"); I use it in one of my plugin, but don't remind where. DenisChenu (talk) 08:51, 27 April 2016 (CEST)
