Forum OpenACS Q&A: User information displayed
This is OpenACS 4.5, RedHat 7.2, PostgreSQL 7.something from this Spring.
I asked about this and was told that this isn't easy in 4.x. I think it's pretty important part of community building and assumed it must be in there, but Vivian said there was no package to handle this.
Are we missing something here?
(The site in question is www.restaurantedge.com, most of which is still in Apache on another machine, but the "Suppliers and Food Distributors" and message boards are on the OpenACS system which will eventually host the whole thing.)
Of course they weren't always in the line of development that culminated in the last of the 3.x releases.
We definitely need to push forward with features of this sort, no doubt. This being an Open Source project based largely on volunteer efforts rather than being financed with a $38M VC infusion it will get done if someone volunteers to step forward and pick up the work, or if someone offers to fund the work, or some combination of both.
