[campsite-support] what about external links...
  • ... with urls longer than 80 characters?
    I think we all know that if we want to add an external link in article it could not exced 80 caracters. But why? Most of urls in campsite driven sites are longer than 100 caracters, so if we need to link to article on the other campsite driven site it cant be done.
    Please if there is a solution for this i would like to know.

    thanks,
    Vladan

  • hi Ondra,
    i've described problem in my first post in this topic, and its about urls longer than 80 characters in external links.
    If i try to add link in article which has url, for example, http://decko.campware.org/look/magazin/article.tpl?IdLanguage=11&IdPublication=1&NrIssue=25&NrSection=80&NrArticle=1065, in browser apears only first 80 characters.
    I use internal link as example, but all other campsite driven sites has urls to articles longer than 100 characters.

  • I do not know about the other campsites, but all these links should be
    done through internal link and not external one.
    1) Link will work even if you change your domain
    2) If you move article with special tool the links inside other articles
    will not loose target

    I know there was such an issue about limiting the length of text fields
    and it wass usually connected to UTF-8 problem, or something like this.
    I saw you use 2.1.4 version and I can upgrade campsite to latest version
    (as far as I know 2.1.5 is out) or if 2.1.6 will be soon (I saw release
    candidate somewhere) we can wait for that version.

  • I understand about internal links, i use them only as exapmle, but there is
    other sites (not campsite) that have urls longer than 80 characters and
    thats causing problems.
    However, if you think that latest version of campsite will allow longer urls
    fell free to upgrade, if not dont waste your time.

    thanks,
    vladan

    Hi Vladan,

    It seems that the problem is with your version of campsite: the latest campsite
    supports URLs with more than 80 characters. Unfortunatelly I don't have the
    root password for your hosting server and I couldn't upgrade campsite. So
    Michal will have to do this, hope he reads this email Smile

    Also, I found other problems with your templates (articleContentGost.tpl,
    articleContentLogin.tpl). "With" statement was not used correctly; the syntax
    is:

    With
    EndWith

    It is used for displaying subtitles in articles (see http://www.tol.cz for
    example)

    The correct use of this statement was:



    where dugacaktext is an article type and teloteksta is a field in that article
    type (see attached screenshot).

    There was another missing template drugipisu.tpl in the english version and I
    copied it from the main publication.

    Regards,
    Mugur

  • Hi guys,
    i really appreciate your help on this.
    Mugur you're right about templates in my publications, they are full of
    missused statements, probably syntax error and other things, and I know all
    that. Thing is that i have other tasks to do in printed publication and i
    dont have much time to corect all these things..anyway all publications
    online are functional and there are no major problems with them (except
    these i posted here).
    I dont know what to say...i realise that corecting my templates isn't your
    job...thanks a lot for that.
    Ondra, please drop me a line when you're finished with upgrade.

    thanks,
    Vladan

  • Mugur can you respond quickly or give me your icq# or msn contact to discuss
    some things?
    After your changes in articlecontentGost.tpl and articlecontentLogin.tpl
    article types vest and krataktext are not displayed at all on my
    publications. Its very important to me because vest means news and we have
    some important news to publish on our site.
    I tried to figure what is wrong but without results.

    thanks,
    Vladan

  • Hi Mugur,
    I've deleted 'with' statement from these templates and it seems to be ok
    now. hmmm?
    Do you know what could be the problem with 'with' statement? maybe because
    we dont have any subtitles in articles? don't know.

    Thanks,
    Vladan

    ------------------------------------------
    Posted to Phorum via PhorumMail
  • Well, actually you shouldn't have used the "with" statement in the template
    because you don't have article subtitles.

    What happened: you tried to print different article types in the same "with"
    statement, but it can be used for one article type and one field only. So you
    must match "with" article type/field with print article type/field, otherwise
    it won't work. Before I corrected the error "with" statement was discarded so
    all the article types could be printed (no subtitles). After I corrected the
    error "with" statement started to work so only article of type dugacaktext were
    displayed correctly.

    Sorry for this, I should have checked all the template and correct everything.

    Regards,
    Mugur
