Workspacer version 0.6.1 for Symphony CMS version 2.5+

Workspacer allows files in the Workspace folder to be managed and edited. It also restores the ability, pre Symphony 2.4, to edit Page XSL templates from the Pages page.


Symphony CMS version 2.5 or higher, PHP 5.4 or higher.


The folder needs to be named "workspacer". Install in the usual way for a Symphony extension.


To access the file manager select 'Workspace' from the Blueprints menu.

To edit a file, click on the file name. Files can be saved by typing Ctrl + s or Cmd + s when the browser's focus is on the editing area. The 'Esc' key can be used to close the editor.


On Symphony's Preferences page there are options to change some of the editor's properties.

Browser Compatibility.

Workspacer will not work fully on Internet Explorer version 9 or lower.
