Need help building Slash templates

posted by Krow on 11:34 AM April 13th, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
I have comps for a site I want built in Slash. While I have worked with Movable Type, building Slash templates is a whole different beast. I need someone to help me convert my comps into a functioning Slash site. If you have these skills, please drop me a line with your rates and scheduling availability. You can see what the site will look like here.

Preventing duplicates from being posted

I'm getting sick of seeing duplicate posts all the time on Slashdot. I have a feature-request/enhancement that I would like to request for slashcode.

It would be nice if before a moderator submits a story to check all of the URLS in that post and match it with the previous weeks/months stories for the same URL. If there is a match, throw up a warning saying that this story is a possible duplicate. This will help the moderator out too, since they wouldn't have to read every story on slashdot in the past two weeks.

What do you think? Is this doable?

Adding ispell after slash is installed

posted by Krow on 11:14 PM April 7th, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
Hi, I read the (archived) thread at: 724238&mode=thread and I have "Running Weblogs with Slash", so I know that "... Slash 2.2 has added an ispell compatibility mode. If the ispell program exists and points to an ispell binary, the Edit Story page will include a list of potentially misspelled words.)" (thanks blagger), but I don't know how exactly what to add, and into what directory,.

I installed freebsd 5.0, then built and installed the slashcode port, and now I've installed ispell. I then tried adding symlinks to ispell into various directories, including /usr/local/slash/bin, and restarting my browser and the freebsd box. Nothing obvious changes. Can someone tell me exactly which file to put where to enable spell-checking? I'm running slash-2.2.6 on Freebsd 5.0.


P.S. Sorry if I misspelled anything, but...

Is mod_perl 2.0 baked yet?

I have read the other posts regarding using slash with apache 2.0. They all seem to say mod_perl needs to work first. So its been awhile, is mod_perl 2.0 up to par and can we get slash to work with apache 2.0 yet?
