Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Don't understand "big picture" of what to do

Posted by sal berg on
Thanks Brian, I will check out the contacts package.

Still having a few problems understanding this. For instance, in trying to implement the functionality that I hope the contacts package will do for me, I created a subsite, which I then wanted to customize. My thinking was that sub-directories would be placed somewhere, and files copied there, which I could then modify in order to customize the subsite. Of course, this didn't happen (no sub-directory anywhere) so I was largely at a loss as to how to customize. I guess there is something fundamental I am failing to grasp.

Thanks again!

Hi Sal,

For a basic site, the acs-subsite package is already mounted, so there's no need to create another. To add directories, use your favorite *nix mkdir command in openacs-4/www/. or install/mount the file-storage package to have files dynamically manage via web.
