    Updating to 1.4.1
    by Jim Carroll on Friday May 10, 08:15PM, 2002

    Hi! I have two discussions going on my company site that are turning out to be pretty useful. One is acting as a tech-support knowledgebase that we allow customers access (based on nifty Zope Roles) only if they have their yearly maintenance contract up-to-date. Anyway...

    I'm updating from 1.3.0 to 1.4.1 on Zope 2.4.3 on windows.

    So far I've: Installed Updater, Added external methods in the root of Zope. Run the updaters, removed the old Products/Squishdot (v1.3.0) directory and installed a new Products/Squishdot (v1.4.1) And now I'm doing diffs to update my slightly-customzied pages. (working from the plain Squishdot files, not the sample fancy stuff)

    I have a few questions.

    My old site has previewPosting and the new package has Squishdot_previewForm.dtml Do I need to somehow rename and update my old previewPosting?

    My old site has validatePosting as a dtml document, and the new site has validatePosting.py as a Python (external?) method. How do I make the transition to the new method? My old site also had validateArticle and validateComment, do these have any equivalents in the new release?

    Is it safe to delete these old dtml documents???

    Thanks!!!! -Jim

      Hi Jim,

      You're upgrading from 1.3.0 to 1.4.1, so there's really not a lot to do ;-)

      You've run the updater, and given that it sounds like you started with one of the 'fancy demo' options, all you've got to do is make the small change to mail_html listed on the upgrades page.

      Just so you know, if any changes are needed anywhere, I'll list them on the updates page, you don't need to go through and compare everything yourself ;-)

      Also, filenames on disk have very little to do with file names in SquishSites, so you may end up shooting yourself in the foot :-S

    I just installed it over a fresh Zope 2.5 install and get this :

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Compiling python modules File "/home/zope/zope/lib/python/Products/Squishdot/validatePosting.py", line 31 return Processed,You must enter an email address for notification! SyntaxError: return outside function

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There were errors during Python module compilation. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A first look at the function and (for what I know about python), it looks good. Any hints ?

      to myself...

      That's ok. One should NOT ./install a zope instance with a Squishdot product untarred and ready to go... just wait Zope to be installed and stuff it later.

      I just note TinyTables didn't choke.

      Have a good day...
