[campsite-support] list articles pages
  • hello

    i have a section called news, the articles on this section categurize to 5
    categuries using topics , i need to build section page for each categuery ,
    am doing that by passing topic name by url to section page like this:

    http://www.pbc.ps/ar/1/6/?tn=last

    my question is how can i get this variable and use it with "contraints"
    field in camsite code {{list_articles......}}

  • Hi,

    the url params will be available throught $smarty.request.tn

    Here some useful tricks, because parsing of arrays is little bit different
    than in php.

    To use this in the contraints within an other function call you need some
    special smarty syntax:
    {{ list_articles constraints="topic is `$smarty.request.tn`" }}
    Take care using booth type of quotas exactly as in the example.

    This will not print articles if tn is empty. You can avoid this by keeping
    the whole topic constraint empty if none is given:

    {{ if strlen($smarty.request.tn) }}
    {{ assign var="topic_condition" value="topic is `$smarty.request.tn
    ` }}"
    {{ /if }}

    {{ list_articles constraints="`$topic_condition`" }}



    Best,
    Sebastian

  • Hi,

    I got stucked with a Campfire installation when it came the "automated tasks".

    It says:
    Error: Could not save cron job files. Could not run the crontab executable.

    I checked the permission, they should be fine. In the beginning of
    the installation all the requirements were filled as well.

    Anything that I could pass for server people to fix?

    Yours,

    Gene
  • Hi Gene,

    it seems on your setup php cannot properly call external programs, like
    crontab. It might be caused by safe_mode_exec_dir, which forbids running
    executables outsite that dir.

    You can use the attached version of CampInstallationBase.php. Save it to
    docroot/install/classes. It will igenore the failure on cron-setup, and
    display the lines you can run manually, if you have sehll access.

    Best,
    Sebastian

  • i cannot install either because of the cron job error can i get a copy of the CampInstallationBase.php or let me know what needs changing
  • Hi Mark,

    What exactly is the cron job error ? Where in the installation process
    are you stuck?
