MultiExcerpt version 5.6.25 26 adds an integration with the Comala Document Management (CDM) plugin.


Of course, this integration feature requires that both MultiExcerpt and CDM be installed on your instance.

Enabling the Comala Document Management Integration Feature

You must enable the feature in BOTH the MultiExcerpt and CDM plugins.


Also enable the feature in MultiExcerpt’s admin tool (“Comala Published Version Integration Enabled”):


Viewing Approved Content in a MultiExcerpt-Include

With the feature enabled, a MultiExcerpt Include will only include approved content (approved via CDM workflow).


There are no special requirements beyond enabling the feature. It is as simple as enabling it and practicing with it. Try it out!


The feature works with and without MultiExcerpt-Include caching. Caching is enabled/disabled globally in the MultiExcerpt admin tool and disabled per-macro in the MultiExcerpt-Include macro editor. There is no need to change your current caching strategy when using this CDM integration.

Special Case: Comala Document Management Plugin is Installed but Disabled

If the Comala Document Management (CDM) plugin is installed and this integration feature is enabled and THEN an admin user disables the CDM plugin then the MultiExcerpt plugin reverts to regular behavior, rendering the latest version of included content.

The MultiExcerpt plugin, of course, cannot recognize CDM workflow statuses if the CDM plugin is disabled.
