Linking articles to archives

Postby sbc on Wed Nov 17, 2004 6:14 pm

Good work on the new template library. What may be good is if you could link Articles to Template Archives. So you could have an article on how to use the templates in the template archive.

Also what may be good is a rich text editor for writing articles (like the excellent HTMLArea or FCKEditor). I would recommend the latest versions (beta, but have no issues) as they work in multiple browsers.

Good suggestion sbc, actually RichTextBox is installed on all of our hosting servers and we can use it for free.

I will get something like that integrated in soon. My first goal was to get the base functionality completed and deployed. I spent quite a few evenings putting it together, so I'm going to take a couple days off. Maybe this weekend or early next week. It's the perfect time to take a break because Half-Life 2, the most amazing video game ever, was released yesterday. It's going to take me at least a week to finish it. ;)

SBC, as always, thanks for your input.

Shame it only works in Internet Explorer. I wonder if they will release a version with support for other browsers (that are capable of rich text editing - Gecko based browsers and Safari I think).

No rush. After all the work you have done you deserve a break (especially now Half-Life 2 is out).

I havn't finished Half-Life 2 yet, but I was itching to get this done. I've added the abilty to relate Archives to Articles this evening (along with adding the FCKEdit Control), and there should be more enhancements later in the week.
