Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Top Ten Priorities for OpenACS ... what are yours?

Posted by Jade Rubick on
I'd say:

- better documentation
- more tutorials on how to do things and how to get involved
- refinement of ad_form

For the last item, look at my documentation on ad_form:

If I was starting out and I looked at that page, it would scare me off of using ad_form. Maybe we should either be very clear that ad_form is just for simple forms (and then document the underlying form builder code better), or improve ad_form and the form builder to handle these cases better.

It seems to me that ad_form and the underlying form builder has some deficiencies with dates and multiple items. I go through all sorts of contortions to make ad_form work. It shouldn't be that hard.

- an OpenACS wiki to host some of these tutorials. I'll contribute all of my OpenACS content.
