patch to add option to automatically link to siblingdocuments
Currently MKDoc automatically links to child dcouments, this patch adds the option to link to sibling documents too. By default it is disabled, it can be enabled by adding this to the httpd-env.conf file: SetEnv MKD__LINK_SIBLINGS TRUE It also adds two more methods available to template writers: document/siblings document/siblings_showable Both return lists of siblings of the current document. They are different from these methods which also include the current document in the list: document/parent/children document/parent/children_showable
updated patch to remove lib::sql from MKDoc-1.6
I've been running several sites for months with this patch applied. It allows the complete removal of the lib/ directory from the MKDoc-1.6 sources, though it does require the MKDoc::SQL module from CPAN.

[BUG] usage results in MKDoc sites beingblackholed
Hi One MKDoc server keeps getting listed on the CBL email spam list: And I think I have tracked this down to the use of Mail::CheckUser in flo/plugin/Account/ -- this is what the CBL says: The Perl CheckUser module defaults to improper "HELO" and "MAIL FROM" strings: "localhost.localdomain" and "check-ASQrhD/3864< at >" respectively. The former is illegal, the latter impersonates - they probably don't like that. [Besides, by not using your own domain, some spam filters will lie to your RCPT TO.] You will need to change $Helo_Domain = to be "<DNS name of your server>" and change $Sender_Addr to be something in _your_ domain (eg: "check< at ><mydomain>") And if you run ethereal and capture the helo MKDoc does indeed use the default of localhost.localdomain and the default email address of check-ASQrhD/3864< at > so I think this solves this mystery... All that is needed now is for
[bug] 1.6 linked images
Hi Images that have titles that match the title of a link component have a bug in the way their links are constructed. For example, on a site with for the public and for admin: - Upload a image titled "example" - Add the text "example" to a text component - Create a /about/example/ document - Add a link component with the title set to "example" and the uri to "/about/example/" Then in the public interface everything should be fine, the text "example" and the image example both link to But when in admin the text links to but the image links to -- ie the public interface not the users interface. There is nothing in the template that contains the domain name so this bug must be in the code. Chris

Be advised that path_info() may give you confusing results when mod_rewrite is active because Apache calculates the path info *after* rewriting. This is mostly worked around in url() and self_url(), but you may notice some anomalies. Version 3.11 3. Workaround for a bug that appears in Apache2 versions through 2.0.54 in which SCRIPT_NAME and PATH_INFO are incorrect if the additional path_info contains a double slash.

[1.6] Redirect bugs?
Hi There seem to be a odd redirect bug with the latest CVS version of MKDoc 1.6, for example if you add a photo attachment to the front page of a site, and then go to view the scaled version then you get a redirect loop and an address like this (this is truncated): /photo.jpg%2Chtml/photo.jpg%2Cscaled/photo.jpg-html/photo.jpg-scaled/photo.jpg-html/ Another way to trigger the bug is to edit the front page and then save it, you get redirected to a 404: /.admin.content/ It appears that something is adding an extra / onto URLs? This could be an issue caused by using Apache 1.3.34 -- but there is nothing in the list of changes from version 1.3.33 that appears to be behind this... Or perhaps the latest Mozilla / Firefox browsers are munging the URLs -- they seem to be escaping "," to "%2C" which they didn't do before (this is on Fedora Core 5) but IE 6 also seems to escape "," so perhaps it's apache doing this rather than the clients... I'll try to do some debugging to see if I can track this down fur

I've seen one solution posted to this list, by Jean-Michel Hiver, however it is outdated as his code doesn't work with the latest Apache + mod_perl, and he doesn't clearly indicate the limitations against all modern browsers. And I prefer to use Digest authentication instead of Basic. As I had a need for this myself, I've taken the plunge and done a really exhaustive examination of doing authentication without c
Re: [1.6 bug] Using self/parent/parent for detectingwhere one is in the document hierarchy
Re-read my email. If an object or document possibly doesn't exist, you have to test for its existence before trying to access methods. This assumes that self/parent exists: <div petal:condition="true: self/parent/parent; false: self/parent/parent/parent;" > This code makes no assumptions: <div petal:condition="true: self/parent; true: self/parent/parent; false: self/parent/parent/parent;" >

Re: [1.6 bug] Using self/parent/parent for detectingwhere one is in the document hierarchy
If self/parent doesn't return a document, then calling a method on this non-object can't possibly work. Test for the existence of self/parent first: <h1 petal:condition="self/parent"> This document has a parent called <span petal:replace="self/parent/title">Mavis</span> </h1> <h1 petal:condition="self/parent; self/parent/parent"> This document has a grandparent called <span petal:replace="self/parent/parent/title">Betty</span> </h1> <h1 petal:condition="false: self/parent"> This document doesn't have a parent :-( </h1> <h1 petal:condition="self/parent; false: self/parent/parent"> This document doesn't have a grandparent :-( </h1>

[1.6 bug] Using self/parent/parent for detecting whereone is in the document hierarchy
Hi If some functionality is needed based on where one is in the document hierarchy then using things like this mostly works: petal:condition="true: self/parent/parent; true: self/parent/parent/children" Or: petal:condition="false: self/parent/parent/equals ancestor;" But if a document doesn't exist when testing for a parent/parent (for example when a template designed for grandchild pages is used for child pages) then there is an internal server error rather than Petal returning false and things like this are written to the apache logs: [PETAL ERROR] Cannot find value for 'equals' at '/self/parent/parent': equals cannot be retrieved (current value was undef, near self/parent/parent/equals ancestor) at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6/Petal/Hash/ line 125 Which is rather inconvient...
