Ask SlashCode: How to Allow Longer Subjects?

posted by jamiemccarthy on 02:34 PM August 30th, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
An anonymous reader asks: "By default there is a limit on how long a poster's subject can be. Is there a way to get beyond this limitation, so that the subject lines for comments and stories can be longer?" Sure, it's easy... this is a good introduction to using MySQL to customize Slash.

Slash: Slash on Mac OS X

posted by pudge on 10:05 AM August 12th, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
This is how I installed Slash on Mac OS X Server 10.2.6 on August 8, 2003. YMMV. This is not intended to be a tutorial, it is a log of what I did for my system. You may wish to use a release version of perl, to include different Apache modules, to compile with DSO, etc. Whatever. If someone wants to take some or all of this information and include it in a more comprehensive guide, be my guest.

Ask SlashCode: How to Force Previewing?

posted by jamiemccarthy on 03:30 PM August 8th, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
An anonymous user writes: "I'd like to see an option added to enable a user to force themselves to preview a post before they actually post the comment. At the moment, a user is required to preview a story submission before they post it, but there is no way for this requirement to be there for standard posts. I often find myself hitting 'submit' when I wish I'd previewed first. I know that a 'force post preview' option could be added to the options section and implemented in SLASH *very* easily, which would simply remove the 'Submit' button from the initial post screen... so could someone do it? I'd do it myself if I was able to update the CVS source :-)" This is a one-liner change... details follow...

Yet another Slash site, Computer Science Daily News. Aims to be a resource for Computer Science professionals, researchers, students and instructors. Hopefully this fills a niche, computer science developments seem to be very decentralized, and hard to find. Slash seems to be working out nicely, though I'm still learning the ropes...
