Extending pages

Certain pages in Misago are simple containers for sections:
  • User Control Panel
  • User Profiles List
  • User Profile
Each of those consists of its own layout and list of sections. For example, user profiles display user name, information about user status, and sections (tabs) with lists of user threads, posts, followers, name history, etc. ect..
Each section is associated to instance of special object,, which contains list of all sections belonging to it. Those instances are misago.users.sites.usercp, misago.users.sites.users_list and misago.users.sites.user_profile. instances expose following API:
Adds section to page. after and before arguments should be value of other page link. visible_if argument accepts callable that will be called with args passed to get_pages function on page render to resolve if link to page should be displayed. get_metadata can be callable returning additional computed metadata for this page. All other values passed to function call get preserved in order to make it easy for 3rd party developers to reuse mechanic for their apps.
visible_if and get_metadata functions are called with arguments that were passed to get_sections method.

get_sections(request, *args)
