Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Extending User Properties
I resusciated this thread wondering if there would be a similar and neat solution as cr_item's.
After a quick search in the api-doc, I found
That got me wonder if there would be any acs_object_type__create_attribute ... :)
Thanks Gustaf, for the references of the packages. im_dynfields is indeed a nice and potential solution to my case. It needs a bit testing to get only intranet-core and intranet-dynfields only. I don't want to fork too much of OACS core.
If it does the expected, the new column in the table user_preferences should be created, shouldn't it?
I explicity added the argument in the plsql function,
But why not?
The pl/sql functions accept a table_name parameter, but it clearly throws an error if table_name is not null. That does not make sense.
I have a set of changes that allow passing in table name to the function to allow passing in the table name. I can find those and make them available somewhere, if anyone in interested in trying to add that back into OpenACS core.
