A component allowing members to create simple blogs in your social network.
Note: Blog requires Textarea Support to be installed and enabled, first.
For your convenience, all Ossn default language files are already in place, but (except of the English and German one) still need translation.
Volunteers are welcome!
You can send your translated ossn.XX.php language files to
Outdated Ossn 5.x releases
The possible fix is to change blog
ossn_com.php following changes and adding a new langauge entry so if user is not the owner who is loggedin then show 'someone commneted on blog` instead of your!
The easy fix would be change all language files and remove keyword 'yours' so its reads as in all cases
someone commneted on blog
It's not possible to install OSSN 6.0 with TextareaSupport 6.3, because Textarea Support 6.3 is not included at OSSN6, you have to register and download it on another Website.
Good news, Balamurali:
Textarea Support 6.3 comes with the necessary interface included now to enable TinyMCE image uploads and pasting images from your clipboard. It needs Ossn 6.0, though.
So, please upgrade your site to Ossn 6.0 first, then install Textarea Support 6.3 and Blog 6.1
Thanks Z-Man. Appreciate the help.
Creating my article is easy this way, but educating the users of the system to do this would be the challenge. Hope there is something with latest TinyMCE, that helps with this. Will research. It would be nice if this opens the camera or gallery interface in the mobile phones, so easy to upload images.
Thank you for the details, Balamurali.
TinyMCE would need an extra interface to store direct image uploads or clipboard content on a server. This is not available by default, and that makes sense because there's no standard which way to accomplish this task where these files should be stored.
In other words: As long as this interface has not been developed, you can only link to images which are already stored somewhere. This must not be a completely different server, you may use images of your Ossn photo albums, too.
So, my way of displaying an image inside a blog is
Admittedly not a really comfortable method, but currently the only workaround.
You take a screenshot of some screen in your laptop. This copies the image in the clipboard. Then you go to the blog editor and paste it there.
The image is attached and seen on the edit blog screen also, but not visible in the Post or in the blog view.
Another issue: in the TinyMCE editor there is no option to pick a file of an image (*.jpg or *.png) from the computer or mobile. There is an option to only give a link, which means the user should have a place on the internet where they could store these images and then use these URLs.
Please guide me with a solution for both the issues. Thank You.
I have no idea from where you copied a link like that.
Please provide the detailed steps which way you did it.
At least it's not a valid image format. Image files should end like
While adding a blog, when I copy-paste an image (from the clipboard), it shows fine in the TinyMCE editor, but after saving it doesn’t display the image in the article, and also doesn't display the image in the related post (of the blog).
While editing the Blog, I could see the image though.
When I check the Html code in the TinyMCE editor it shows like below... it is a blob and the blob is not loading in the Post and the Blog! Is this a known issue?
Code: <p><img src="blob:https://<OSSNURL>/6fd118ac-1555-45fe-a25d-e5dde6d2c423" alt="" /></p>
Please help. Thank You.
