from the dept.
I have just started using squishdot and I have a couple of questions. As a start, it was very easy to install and a lot of good functionality is provided out-of-the-box (Thanks!).
There a couple of areas in which I'm interested in using and extending squishdot. I'm curious if you have any feedback or comments.
- hierarchical categories
In a manner similiar to yahoo, I would like to have a hierarchical tree/browser for creating cagetories and sub-categories. This would allow articles/comments to be arranged and searched in this manner as well.
Is this something that you have considered before or are there any hooks present for this capability?
- externally-referenced articles
I would like to use squishdot for all of the publishing front-end and back-end. However, I would prefer not be tied (in all cases) to the squishdot interface for authoring news articles. If possible, it would be nice to generalize the interface such that external or zope-internal links can be treated as "articles" for threaded discussions, search, etc.
As a temporary hack, I was thinking of placing a zope response redirect dtml block in an article's body.
What do you think?
I would like to create the following zope roles and have the squishdot product support them properly.
- Anonymous (i.e. Guest)
Is this something of interest to you as well?
I'm thinking of localizing the squishdot interface and article content for japanese. One possibility, is to use the zope "vary" tag/product (http://www.zope.org/Members/tino/Vary%20tag/readme) to provide both english and japanese views. I would also have to install the jsplitter and chasen packages for supporting search and catalog of japanese text (however, this will probably have no effect on squishdot).
If so, do you have any desire for me to feedback the interface changes to you?
