Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Getting current News items on Home Page!
I have almost the same problem with Gilbert. Although a little
different. I am now using OpenACS 4.x for this site.
Same issue on the home page. My issue is that a copy of 2 instances
of a news
modules must be displayed on the home page.
I have 2 news instances that is mounted on /press and another on
/articles. The home page will have a snap shot of both. In OpenACS4
rather than making 2 tcl or adp file. I just used the templating
system. Basically the news modules use the master template that i
created. My master template is smart enought to apply the look based
on the URL. It still uses the skin module but slightly modified.
Anyway what is the best way to do a copy to 2 separate news package
instance? I would like to do this the OpenACS 4.x way rather than
making a tcl file that gets the data from the db. There are portlets
right? Is this the best way? I want to uses existing OpenACS 4.x
services/features as much as possible. Thanks.
