Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: General-Comments with Edit-This-Page?

Posted by Yves Goldberg on
I wasn't successful at applying the above code to add comments to ETP pages.

Anyone can confirm it still the way to go with 5.0 final?

Hello Yves

I don't know if you are still interested about your question but I went into add comment link to edit-this-page - OACS 5.1 - and the code provided still works with minor changes.

1. Just put into /packages/edit-this-page/tcl/etp-gc-procs.tcl

namespace eval etp {

ad_proc -public get_gc_link { } {
  Called from rotisserie questions template to present      comment link
    taking out permission checking for now
    @author Pat Colgan
    @creation-date 4-17-01

} {
    upvar pa pa
    upvar comment_link comment_link
    set item_id $pa(item_id)
    set object_name [etp::get_name]
    set comment_link ""

    append comment_link "<center>[general_comments_create_link -object_name $object_name $item_id ]</center>"
    append comment_link "[general_comments_get_comments -print_content_p 1 $item_id ]"
    return "$comment_link"

Important: watch this file in /acs-admin/apm

2. Put into your news-content.tcl


3. Put into your news-content.adp
