Forum OpenACS Q&A: Blog module available for download
If you have an existing OpenACS 3.2.5 installation, then you will need to drop one constraint on the bboard_topic table.
alter table bboard_topic drop constraint check_presentation_type;That constraint limits bboards to q_and_a, threads, ed_com, and usgeospatial.
presentation_type varchar(20) default 'q_and_a' constraint check_presentation_type check(presentation_type in ('q_and_a','threads', 'ed_com', 'usgeospatial')),I know how to drop the constraint in pg, what I haven't figured out is how to modify the constraint so that it contains 'blog':
presentation_type varchar(20) default 'q_and_a' constraint check_presentation_type check(presentation_type in ('q_and_a','threads', 'ed_com', 'usgeospatial', 'blog')),Apart from that other installation instructions can be found in the release notes, and you can ask for help in the forums here, or the 'Things Web' forum at my system: http://www.theashergroup.com/bboard/q-and-a? topic_id=3.
If anyone wants to work on it, please do. I would like to see:
- more themes
- better icons
- acs 4 port (should be easy as most of the work is done in a database neutral tcl proc.)
I thought this an interesting article for it's weaving of blogging, km, spidering, and collaborative communities -- all features of the OpenACS platform, and apparently a big market opportunity.
