Sending subject and author details to another page
How-To Posted by Angela Rosin on Thursday February 06, 05:19PM, 2003
from the I-can't-be-having-with-this dept.
I want to use my Squishdot site as a announcement bulletin as well.

So I want a list of the subjects (and possibly the authors) on my main index page. I've fiddled around with the dtml but I can't get it to work. Can I do this.

I have very minimal programming experience and have only been using Zope for a couple of weeks. I just think it must be really simple and I'm missing it. Part of the problem is that I can't work out where the postings are kept so I can get the filepaths right.

    Can you mock up an example of what you're after?

    You'll probably need to learn how to query ZCatalogs (The Squishdot Site object is a specialized ZCatalog) and write some templates. This should all be covered in The Zope Book.

    I think I understand that you want to display all subjects and all authors on the main page.

    For all subjects see this , sorry just text, no pictures.

    For all author's you'll need a script (as Chris said), and that could be a tedious one which we gave a sigh to earlier.

    You may just want to manually update a list in a rightbox...making these links to http://yoursite/search?author=AUTHOR&op=articles (remove the op variable for articles & replies.)

    Good Luck! Keep us posted.

    Can you tell us what you mean by "announcement bulletin as well"? As well as what?

    Okay, thanks for the replies, I've sorted out the problem in a very easy way - I did what I should have done in the first place and made the while site a Squishdot site rather than putting it in a folder lower down and then trying to get the info.

    I will read up on Zope, I will. I promise.
