CMS & frontpage

Some of the most important features that the CMS integration brings to us are:

Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing ...
 
Hi all,

For those who were running into the following error when submitting a forum search from the frontpage:

This is now fixed. Looks like the added CSRF protection in the latest vbulletin was causing this problem.

Simply Overwhelming
 
Hi Pat,

it will take some time to explore all the features the new solution offers. I'm a little confused about "Blogs and Web links Forum". Is it "forum" or "blog" :confused: what is exactly is the intention behind it?

Great job anyway :)

Regards,

Martin

Hi Martin,

The forums under the 'CMS - Forum Integration' category are meant as a 'container' for comments to content that originates from the CMS. The concept is that the CMS is used for hosting things like blogs, weblinks, jobs, stories etc but that discussions on them (aka comments) are done in the forum. You will notice that most CMS content has a Add new comment link with it. This allows you to post comments to the item in one of these forums. That is also why these forums do not allow new threads to be created in them but only replies.

Does that make it a bit clearer?

For example: this thread is gathering all comments to one of our FAQ over at the CMS: http://www.baanboard.com/node/1753.

When viewing this FAQ you will see that all these forum posts are actually visible there as comments (at the bottom).

Still confused..
 
Sorry Pat, I'm still confused.

I can add a comment in the 'CMS' section or either post a reply in the 'Forum' - it seems to make no difference :confused: . Why does the same 'thread' appear in two different places?

Another strange thin I noticed:
when I try to hit the 'Update your personal blog?' link on the frontpage a password is required - why that? What does that link stand for? My interpretation was to edit my blog..

Regards,

Martin

Hi Martin,

The concept is that CMS comments are stored as forum posts so yes they show up in both places because they are one and the same thing. This is what links CMS & forum both together. In a standard Drupal site, CMS comments are stored inside the CMS but because comments are de facto "discussions", vbDrupal (which is the combined CMS+Forum solution) offers the possibility to use our forum as 'commenting engine'. SO in fact we are using the 'best features of both worlds'. Does that make sense?

Regarding the blog link: that is strange. Can you post me a screenshot of where you see this link?

New forum menu

Hi all,

To ease the burden of new navigation a bit, I added a forum specific menu in the navigation panel. It resembles more the structure of the 'top' menu we used to have on the old site.

Here we go..

It's the 'Update your personal blog?' link. The password dialog is in German - sorry :o .

Hi Martin,

Okay, found it. I forgot to change the link. It was still pointing at the development site. It is fixed now. Thanks for noticing it!

Dropdown menus fixed in forum
 
Hi all,

Some of the Javascript powered drop-down menus in the forum - such as 'Thread Tools' or 'Search this Forum' - that were not working previously, are now fixed.

Regards,

Pat.

Martin Jung 11th June 2008 08:17

Pat,

I'm missing the tools on the forum frontpage - such as 'Mark Forums Read'. It's a tiny little link at the bottom of the page now :( .

Regards,

Martin

patvdv 11th June 2008 09:32

Hi Martin,

There's an easier link in the Forum Menu > Quick Links > Mark All Forums Read.
