[geeklog-devel] Feature Request: ADMIN_list (2 requests)

I can't really make the forms have different action urls. They pull 
their action url out of the $_GET array (so that they don't mess up 
the other display) and thus end up identical. It's too complicated to 
explain here. But I've figured out a different change that would be 
easier on you and not as messy in the

Add a hidden input with the $component variable in it to the form.

<input type="hidden" name="component" value="{component}">  // added 
to (probably) the list.thtml just before the table opens.

$admin_template->set_var('component', $component);  // added 
somewhere in the big function

That would be an easy fix for my dilemma and I wouldn't need the 
delitem change.
Passing templates into admin_list would be cool:

     $admin_templates = new Template($_CONF['path_layout'] . 'admin/lists');
     $template_files = array (
         'topmenu' => 'topmenu.thtml',
         'list' => 'list.thtml',
         'header' => 'header.thtml',
         'row' => 'listitem.thtml',
         'field' => 'field.thtml',
         'menufields' => 'menufields.thtml'

     if (isset($options['templates'])) {
          foreach ($options['templates'] as $k => $v) {
               $template_files[$k] = $v;


if you pass in Array('list'=> 'mylist.thtml', 
'special'=>'special.thtml') the 'list' element overwrites the default 
template array and the 'special' element is just added on. You'd need 
to use PLG_templatesetvars to use the extra template, still, it could 
be interesting.
