Preventing duplicates from being posted

posted by Krow on 03:21 PM April 10th, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
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?

Can Slash handle long lived items

posted by Krow on 06:46 PM March 28th, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
I have a need for a site that will support both short time articles and documents that have a very long life (on the order of over 5 years).

Before re-inventing this I wanted to ask if there was a plugin or something that allowed me to have a storage area for documents that have a very long life. For example policies and procedures.

I would like to have a index page for these items generated automaticly and also be able to announce them in a regular story.

For a real example one thing I would like to be able to do is to post scores from a weekly match (USPSA) and have an index page that will show each weeks history. In addition a story would be posted with a link to that weeks scores. Another use would be to have a series of "white papers" that are avaiable from an index page and are also announced in a story.
