Forum OpenACS Development: my workspace enhanced
1. Why can I not add html tags to a personal profile.
2. Is it possible to embed the /page module into a profile without causing security problems.
3. Incase I wan't to ignore a possible security issue, how can I change the bio source so it will allow me to add the html code?
Personaly I feel it's a matter of choice for the site administrator if adding html might cause privacy problems. The same isseu occurs in other modules aswell. Maybe it makes sense to offer an option. The default workspace at this moment doesn't realy add much value to the user experience. The average "üser" expects to be able to do something on his personal workspace.
You may notice in my example I offer a customizable top portion, and the default workspace section, although with some additonal features, refering to settings sometimes require inteference of a site administrator.
An additional benefit of this approach is that it allows a user to crate a customized page using both acs 3.25 and acs 4.6 functionality, without digging into the source.
the tags and/or attributes you'd like to use on your site and you'll be good to go. No coding required!
You can get around this, but it is tricky. The ideal solution, I think, is using something like:
or a Wiki-style markup instead of HTML
