Jim Gay's blog extension - need install?


#1

Does the SaturnFlyer blog extension need to be installed or migrated?
There
isn’t any info in the readme so I am assuming not. And when I try and
migrate it, I get this error “uninitialized constant AuthorExtension”.
Looking in the rake file leads me to believe that it doesn’t, but I just
want to be sure.

Thanks,

Nate

Hi Nate,

As per http://wiki.radiantcms.org/Using_Radiant_as_a_Blog I don’t think
there’s a need to migrate anything.
Are you sure that the folder name under vendor/extensions is correct?

That said, there is a migration in the source:
http://github.com/saturnflyer/radiant-blog-extension/tree/master/db/migrate/001_add_users_bio.rb

So, it may need to be migrated… sorry, I’m not using the extension
(only using the sibling tag features from a different extension).

Cheers,
Mohit.

Sorry for the lack of docs.
I’ll add 'em, but the blog extension is slated to become a part of the
core sometime after 0.7 with some tweaks perhaps.

Running the migration will add a bio and bio_filter to the user’s
table which allows user’s to manage their own bio.
I have NOT yet checked any of our extensions against edge. Error
reports and patches would be greatly appreciated. In the meantime I’m
going to tag everything with 0.6.9.

Also, I forgot to address your bug report.

Originally it was just going to be support for authors (hence your
error “uninitialized constant AuthorExtension”)
I’ve pushed an update to fix that, but it was a typo in blog/lib/tasks/
blog_extension_tasks.rake

Pull the latest, and do let me know if you have any trouble.
