Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Wimpy Point Package!
Having all presentations in the same place (e.g. https://openacs.org/wp) is how I would like to see it. One of the coolest things about WP is having diverse content listed in one place (at a university: philosophical presentations are listed with physiological and philological ones). The dotLRN portlet could just list presentations that have been linked to specific courses. In fact it might make associating single presentations with multiple groups easier.
So, instead of saying, I only have one instance of WimpyPoint mounted at /wp, we mount the content aggregation package for WimpyPoint and it retrieves all the content from the mounted WP packages at /subsite1/wp, /subsite2/wp aso. asf.
As a further step, if we provide good DTD's for the packages, we could even aggregate content across various OpenACS instances (e.g. OpenACS.org could dynamically import the WPs that Lars creates over at collaboraid.biz).
If there is interest I would flesh this out a little bit more, but if you say this is not worth the effort, fine as well ....
