    so a input field where u enter the format urself , and not a preselected drop down menu
  • Options
    yep, smth like that.

    and also layoutwise. now you have, as it were, two sidebars on the left - the big vanilla one and the smallish blog one (with the date and teh links). why not putting that bit of the blog entry to the right?

    BTW having timezone-adjustment option in some form would be great. if you are to input time, that is
  • Options
    Great Schizo, thanks for the hint, I'll try this.

    About the date format, I agree an input field would be cool.

    OK for pagination and FriendlyURL
    use this in your .htaccess file
    RewriteRule ^extension/category/([0-9]+)$ extension.php?CategoryID=$1 [QSA,L] RewriteRule ^extension/category/([0-9]+)/$ extension.php?CategoryID=$1 [QSA,L] RewriteRule ^extension/([0-9]+)/([0-9]+)$ extension.php?CategoryID=$1&page=$2 [QSA,L] RewriteRule ^extension/([0-9]+)/([0-9]+)/$ extension.php?CategoryID=$1&page=$2 [QSA,L]

    great job, MSchizoB :)

    i figured out how to switch off the panel under the blog tab (using your Nuggets, btw, so as to stay updateproof :)). so, this indeed can be left to every admin's discretion. but what i think IS important is to sort out this 'permalink' thing. and, sorry for repeating myself, it seems, the best option would be to have it leading to the FULL text of the blog-post formatted the blog-, rather than the discussions-, way.

    this way you can indeed have blog entries as kind of articles, with discussions of them kept separately

    Getting this error when I try and change the date: Notice: Undefined index: BLOG_DATE in /home/html/vanilla/extensions/Blog/library/PostBackControl.BlogForm.php on line 68

    Also, is there any way we can remove the <!--more--> tag from the content once an article is displayed in full view? Possibly wrap it in a css class?
  • Options
    Is there anyone who can provide a link to a board that uses this extension? I'd just like to poke around and see what it does. I'm having a hard time visualizing it...

    @mis-one look at ur conf/settings.php. It should have a variable like $Configuration['BLOG_DATE'] = 'j M y'; if not then just add it btw hiding the more tag has to be done with HTML formatter. its a comment. HTML formatter shouldn't display it at all Looks like i forget to add this by default. I'll fix it see testing makes products better :P Can anyone show Allison how this works and looks like, by giving him/her a link to ur test server
  • Options
    mine is seriousely hacmoded now (it's testing time, isn't it :)) but if no one else has it, let me know, and i'll put it back to its default form, just to show alison around :)

    Any plans to support BBCode and/or Textile? Most of my users already have a hard time understanding how to add a link, so when it comes to HTML...

    u can use BBcode and textile in it, no problem only problem will be the how u will enter the <!--more--> tag. more tag isn't necessary at all, so don't worry about it right now. Adding more button with BBcode is easy anyway. Zero i think u need to try this submit form, and try out the toolbar. I have one like that working on my test server. its dead easy to use. http://forum.mootools.net/post.php?fid=6

    @MySchizoBuddy - Kudos on this extension it is working flawlessly for me. What will differentiate between this and the final release?

    reading from peoples reply so far, they don't need one. they are happy with a basic one. oh i forgot have to work on that permalink thingy. have to design a mockup for it, and make a new permalink page. @Alast can u explain more clearly how the permalink page should look like? the final one would have support for categories. Ability to turn blog posts into forum posts vice versa. Drafts mode. Future posts, related posts etc. So far no one has shown interest in it. the basic one doesn't have its own database table, which makes it hard to extend in the future and make it really kickass. The final one was to have that so it would be future proof. So far people haven't shown interest in that either. Plus making a full fledge blog means i will go against Swell. *gulp* Need a better blog theme as well. I got over this current style pretty soon. :S Some css issues remain.

    Though the lack of authenticated RSS is still a huge issue for my community needs, I was also begging for a blog extension like this over many months. This is mucho awesome. I DO have interest in all the polish you can bring to it - blog posts <--> forum posts, draft, future mode and definitely its own database table. Even without RSS, this may bring me back big-time to Vanilla.

    Thanks!

    RSS for blog is a must have.

    Finally got around to trying this out--this seriously rocks, will definately be using this when my fourm is launched.

    Schizo is going to be (or is he already?) the next extension king.
  • Options
    Future posts, related posts sound like a great idea, would it be possible to add bookmarks like "digg" "del.icio.us" etc.? Also, I can't wait until the <!--more--> tag issue with html formater is fixed. Thanks.

    yeah Bookmarks as well. one thing at a time. sjeeps ur asking about universal bookmark like http://addthis.com/ or something more simple. and where will be displayed. Should the link to digg take u to the page with comments or to permalink. decisions decisions
    OK here is the mockup for a permalink page. like alast said, a simple page with the complete blog post.
