Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to How to implement a magazine like thing?

Posted by Anton Bajri on
Thanks, Adam and Mike.

I checked the aDs CMS and it looks impressive... Intimidating I would say... Sadly, i'm the classical proletary: i only own my own work force, so i must be very carefull in how i invest it. :)

I think News + File-management combo can do what i want. I wouldn't need the 'edition' concept, but may be i'll have to adapt news to add an Author and Date fields...

As i want to keep 'normal' news also, is the next alternative reasonable?

1. add author and date fields to the news table. the news module will ignore them.

2. clone the news directoryes and edit the displaying pages and submitting forms to deal with the new fields.

Is this the normal way ACS is extended?

Thanks a lot and sorry for my english,
