How to upload a module

  • In the “Name” field we must enter the name of the module or plugin. This should be quite specific and descriptive so that it is easy to find.
  • In the “Description” field we will add the necessary information regarding the module/plugin. We can use the text editor (html) or the visual editor. Images, links and code snippets can be added.

module name

  • Code snippets must be in preformatted text or if we add it in the text editor we should put them inside the <pre></pre> tag.
  • Titles must be in Heading 2 format, or in the text editor within the <h2></h2> tag.

heading

  • When adding code snippets, it is important to make sure that all the characters have been copied correctly. Otherwise, we must put them in “html entity” format. For example, there is a problem when inserting the windows bar “\”, so we must put “& bsol” (with no spaces between these words). You can find more information about this type of incompatibilities and how you can deal with it in order to solve it, at the following link: https://dev.w3.org/html5/html-author/charref
  • When copying code snippets that go inside the < > tag, you should paste them directly in the visual editor or you can write “& lt;” and “& gt;” (with no spaces between these words), otherwise errors might arise.
  • You can add as many “Tags” as you want, by separating them with commas.
  • To select several categories, hold Ctrl+click.

How to add a file to the module

To attach a file to the module (both files and images), we have to click on the “Add media” button, and drag or select the file we want to attach. Once the file has been added to the editor, we will put it after the description and with the title “Files:” with the format “Heading 2” or inside the <h2>Files:</h2> tag.

How to edit a module

We must go to the “View my modules” menu. There, we will find a table with 3 tabs: published, pending and draft modules. Within the published tab, we will find all the modules that we have previously uploaded with the options to view, edit or delete.

Why can’t I see some modules?

Some of our modules are exclusive for Pandora FMS Enterprise users and these are marked with a green symbol. It is necessary to log in with the Pandora FMS account to see the download links.

  • Attached files must go at the end, after the description and preceded by the title “Files:” (with Heading 2 format or inside the <h2></h2> tag in the text editor.
  • When adding an attachment, in the part of the link that is shown by screen (anchor text), we have to put the name of the file with the corresponding extension so that it is more visual.
  • Code snippets must always be inside the <pre></pre> tag or in preformatted text format.
  • Routes (other than links) must be in italics, such as: /usr/bin/perl
  • It is important to select one or several categories and to add tags to facilitate the search of modules within the library.
