Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: XoWiki embeded news adp?

Are you using dotlrn (which has a dotlrn portlet named news-portlet) or plain OpenACS?

Do you want to get the output of an existing OpenACS news instance into xowiki, or do you just want to get "news-functionality" into xowiki? In the latter case, there is e.g. http://alice.wu-wien.ac.at:8000/xowiki/news an option, which is based on form-pages and do not require an additional package.

The news-portlet page in xowiki just summarizes some statistics about the dotlrn-news package, xowiki just displays the summary information similar other packages like e.g. http://openacs.org/xowiki/chat

Thank you for the reply and time. We are not using dotlrn just plain OpenACS. I took a look at the "news functionality" and it is useful; however, my intention was to get the output of an existing OpenACS news instance into xowiki. Is this currently possible?

If not, I'll utilize the "news functionality" that you pointed out.
