Adding ispell after slash is installed

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.

slashd not disconnecting from mysql

I've just managed to get slash 2.2.6 installed with mySQL 4.0.12 and apache 1.3.27 on a Debian system (local network.) Things appear to be working except that slash doesn't seem to be disconnecting from mySQL after serving up a page - each page eats a new mySQL thread which remains sleeping until enough threads are created such that I run out of memeory (128M.) Is this normal for slash, unique to mySQL 4.0 or debian, or am I just lucky?
