    I try to make a simple case handle system out of squishdot.(short explanation why i need this: so its possible to have discussions with coworkers about the single cases it its already handled or not) for that special explaned case
    I do need more fields per posting
    (example: so you can add the case status handled/not handled I tried to program more fields to the html form but they got lost somewhere on the way
    do you have a solution to extend this posting?
    can you tell me which python-files i have to change to get the above mentioned situation

    thanks and best regards, sincerely
    M.Koller

      I assume only articles, not replies, need the flag.

      You'll probably have to muck with the product code.

      Add your field similar to the "dept." field, heck, USE the dept. field! (Then you'll just have to change the HTML.)

      But then you'll probably want to filter a search by handled/not-handled?? So at that point you'll need a new property in your posting class, and all the support in the HTML and ZCatalog.

      Would a ZWiki IssueTracker do just as well? Then the rest of your knowlege base can sit alongside and be easily cross-referenced. If your interested in that, take the discussion there and not to add an OT thread here.

        If the dept field does the job, then you can always add an index for it in the ZCatalog if you need to sort/filter by it...
