We need to be anle to add image to blog. Is there a way to add ckeditor to it.

at Rik mye Replied 6 months ago

I put some test script together and added to the ossn_com.php file. This provides more or less of what I was trying to achieve, but I would like some professional advice to help with me with correct syntax, as I have only started using OSSN a 5 days ago.

////////////// list blogs in newsfeed sidebar menu
$blog = new Blog;
$blogs = $blog->getBlogs();
// $icon = ossnsiteurl('components/OssnGroups/images/group.png');
foreach($blogs as $item ) {
ossnregistersectionsmenu('newsfeed', array(
'text' => $item->title,
'name' => "blog",
'url' => ossn
'section' => 'blog',
'icon' => $icon

This is a great little add-on. Is there anyway of showing the 'blogs' listed in the newsfeed bar as well, in a similar way it is done for 'groups'?
In the theme I have set the 'blog menu' to expand on default, by using $expend = 'in'; . What I just need now is have the list of 'blogs' there too.
Many thanks for any help you can give.

I recommend all developers, inluding core team developers, create github repositories for their open source plugins. That way we can all work on making plugins better and submit pull requests, with feature improvements, bug fixes, and documentation upgrades.

I also recommemd that OSSN add a field to their plugin submission page for their github project url.

Will there be an update of this component? You have written about the feature to show the new blog as a wall post?

@Arsalan That sounds good. I can understand it was put together fast. I am just brainstorming that I think it will be a really good feature to have for updates and site information etc.
