Forum OpenACS Q&A: Forums in 5.0 and general-comments on Photos in photo-album
I recall from old versions of bboard and forums that sometimes users could add attachments/images to posts. Is that functionality somewhere in Forums?
Also, in a related idea, is there support somewhere for adding general-comments on photos in the 5.0 photo album?
You can add comments to photos like this:
try adding this to your photo-album/photo.tcl:set comment_link [general_comments_create_link $photo_id "[ad_conn package_url]photo?photo_id=$photo_id"]
set comments [general_comments_get_comments -print_content_p 1 -print_attachments_p 1 \
$photo_id "[ad_conn package_url]photo?photo_id=$photo_id"]
then add this to your photo.adp:@comment_link@
Hope this helps. I think you can add comments to any content item. Im not that sure about it though. But I made it work for photo album
I am going to be working on a site where I want users posting images in a discussion to be able to concurrently submit the image to an image repository (based on the photo-album package) on the same site.
I'm also curious about rating photos, or general rating system--I know I've seen oacs-based sites with photo ratings, but can't recall anywhere in the current HEAD tree where that might work.
This post was a good find - I just added the lines of code above to photo.tcl and photo.adp and a proper link comes up - problem is the <'s and >'s are > and <'s. Also the ampersands in the url are replaced with &'s. I tried further processing comment_link with ad_text_to_html but that just wrapped it in paragraph tags. Is there an existing proc to fix this or do I have a paramater set wrong somewhere? Or do I need to write some regsub's?
