As a sophisticated component, SobiPro has several views on front-end. Each view shows specific elements. This document refers to the default SobiPro installation with the default v6.2 template. If and how a field or an element is shown can be setup individually. A SobiPro naming convention makes it easier to talk about the different elements.
The main view of each section (directory) is the so called section view. This view is available for each section (directory), but due to its own template, fields and configuration, each section can look and behave different.
The main view of each section (directory), the section view, has by default a menu on top, the so called top menu with links to the section view (itself), to the add entry form (if adding entries is allowed for the specific user) and to the SobiPro's search form (if searching is allowed to the specific user).
Below the top menu, by default the so called alpha menu is shown, which let the users select different entry listing views depending on a letter. A listing view is a view which shows a list of entries.
If a description is setup for the directory, it will be shown after the alpha menu.
By default the alpha menu is followed by a list of the main categories of the directory (section). For each category in this list the category name, an icon/image and a short description (intro text) is shown.
After the categories list, a list of entries is shown if the directory is setup to show entries on section front.
For the entries in the entries list, the so called vCard is shown. This is a shorter description of an entry. Which data of an entry is shown in the vCard can be setup in the fields manager. By clicking on the entry name on the vCard, a full description of the entry, the so called details view is shown.
If the user clicks on a category name, the so called category view will be shown. The category view is also a listing view, but while the section view is available only once for each section, each section can have multiple category views.
Each category view, has by default the top menu with the three links, and the alpha menu shown, followed by the category icon and name and the category description, if available.
If the category has sub-categories, they are shown by default after the category description. For each category in this list the category name, an icon/image and a short description (intro text) is shown.
After the list of sub-categories, a list of the entries of this category (and its sub-categories if setup so) are shown.
For the entries in the entries list, the vCard is shown. This is a short description of an entry. By clicking on the entry name on the vCard, a full description of the entry, the so called details view is shown.
In the so called details view, by default all data available for an entry are shown. Which data are available, depend on the fields which are setup in the fields manager.
As each SobiPro view, by default the top menu with its links and the alpha menu is shown.
After the content of the fields, a list of the categories the entry belongs to is shown.
The entry form is used to add or edit the data of an entry.
As each SobiPro view, by default the top menu with its links is shown followed by the fields as specified in the fields manager. The user can add data in the fields or choose from given options dependent on the field type.
At the end a cancel and save button are available, to let the user save the data or cancel the form.
The search form is used to search for entries by entering selected data in the form.
As each SobiPro view, by default the top menu with its links is shown followed by search fields as specified in the fields manager. The user can add data to search for in the fields or choose from given options dependent on the field type.
The results of the search, the search results view, shows the vCards of the found entries. The search results view is a listing view.
