Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: xowiki issue
That's what you are seeing; the file test.pdf is not found in your xowiki instance. In case, you want in your page literally double square brackets, write a backslash in front of it. For more details, see http://alice.wu-wien.ac.at:8000/xowiki-doc/#vars
thanks for your reply. My doubt was rather about the representation of the link for the missing file. Instead of having the complete file name embedded in - tags I just get the two square brackets in . It's not that easy to click on a single square bracket.
Being a long time user of MediaWiki, I expected the complete filename to be represented as a link (without the single square brackets), even better with a red font, in order to point out that the link can't be resolved until you create the corresponding object.
I'm following the official xowiki docs, and I was puzzled by this, because the description of links for pages and files seems to be different from what I'm actually getting.
While we are at it, I have another small issue. I'm using Postgresql v. 8.4. I think it is not the recommended version for OpenACS 5.6, but it works fine for me.
I just had to make a change related to database issues in xowiki so far.
In www/admin/list.tcl I had to change this database query, because apparently PG v. 8.4 doesn't like queries without fully qualified column names when more than one table is involved (my guess):
select object_id from syndication s, cr_items ci
where object_id = ci.live_revision and parent_id = :folder_id
select s.object_id from syndication s, cr_items ci
where s.object_id = ci.live_revision and parent_id = :folder_id
Anyhow, if it helps you, i'll modify the query, being more specific never hurts.
