To: squeak-dev <at> lists.squeakfoundation.org

Hi
I am familiar with Squeak and becoming familiar with Seaside.
I am keen to use Pier for a small website, but am battling to find any
tutorial or getting started documentation (other than enough to know
that I am interested!). I have downloaded the new one click image from
Tudor and Lukas and have Pier running. My problem now is how do I
begin with tasks like:

Creating a page template with my logo, choice of menu layout etc?
Adding a search component visible throughout the site
Using columns as seen on the Seaside site?
Editing rich content pages with embedded graphics, tables, video etc..
- I did come accross a loadable extension that did this in the past
using a java script based editor, but I also found a post to the
effect that
this is no longer required...

Any links to more detailed documentation, or suggestions on how to do
the above will be appreciated!
Thanks,
(Continue reading)

Novice questions: password, site name, new tab

Dear List,

I am setting a Pier image and bumped into problems:
	- how can I change the top most title. I have "Your Pier". How can I  
modify it? Or even better add an image
	- how the admin password may be changed?
	- how a new tab may be added? For now, I have "Home", "Blog",  
"About". What should I do to have a new entry here?

These points do not seem to be addressed in the FAQ. I haven't checked  
in the mailing list archive. Is there a search somewhere?

I would be delighted to expand the FAQ with your answer.

Cheers,
Alexandre

That is part of the "environment" of the page (or the template). You  
can take a look at it by invoking the Edit Design command (or Ctrl+D  
on Mac). You will see that you actually have different environments  
for different pages (you see the name in the Location), but all embed  
(with "+") the /environment/header+ structure.

If you further navigate to +/environment/header+ using the sitemap at  
the bottom, you will get to a so called meta page. If you edit the  
page, you will see that it embeds +/environment/sitetitle+. This is  
the title that appears at the top. Navigate there and edit it to add  
whatever you want.

Go to /systemmanagement and edit the user.

In the +/environment/header+ you will see that it embeds a +/ 
environment/menu+. Navigate there, and you will further see that if  
you edit it, it's not a page but it is a component. Then invoke  
Settings (or Ctrl+T) and you can add a new item in the list. The nice  
property of the Menu component is that it adds an "active" class to

How to add a what news ticket?

Dear List,

I am figuring out how to add a new entry in the "what's new". But I  
haven't figured out how. What is wrong with the following steps?
	1 - login with my admin password
	2 - In the Sitemap, I select Blog. I see two entries : Down to  
business and Hello.
	3 - I add a post for which I filled the Author and the contents. My  
post is listed in the Blog part of the Sitemap
	4 - I go back to the main page (by clicking on NewSession for  
example). I do not see my post listed in the "What's new". Probably  
there is something wrong I have done so far.

I then though that maybe the "What's new" is limited to display only 2  
entries, starting from the oldest one (since I guess my post is newer  
than the two post per default). To verify this:
	5 - I select Blog and click on edit, I do not see such a hardcoded  
limitation of 2 posts, I click on setting, neither
	6 - I then try to remove the two previous post, hopping this will let  
my post appear. I click on "Down to business" and press the "remove"  
command.  "Down to business" is not listed in the site map anymore.
	7 - I click on Home or New Session, then I see the "Down to business"  
post listed in the What's new. Obviously I did not the right set of  
actions to remove a post.

Help welcomed :-)

Are the way to realize such feature stable? In the other word, I would  
be delighted to help the Pier community with providing SnapZpro video  
that shows basic features such as adding a page, removing one, adding

Re: How to add a what news ticket?

Hi Alex,

There are two problems with the scenario you just mentioned. One  
problem is due to the Blog flow being not so explicit, and one due to  
you looking in the wrong part :)

1. You entered the news correctly in the blog. However, if you did not  
set the publication, it means that the blog post is just a draft. You  
see it in the Sitemap, because the child Post was added successfully,  
but you do not see it in the Blog page. I know, it's not that intuitive.

2. Now, suppose you do fill the publication field of the Post with the  
current date. The post will appear in the Blog, but it will still not  
appear in the main page. This is not a bug, it's actually a feature  
because the posts on the main page will only be updated for a new  
session.

You were right to go look for the settings, but you looked at the  
parameters of the blog. But, it's not the blog that is embedded in the  
main page. Please just follow the environment of the main page to see  
and track down how does the what's new items get there (similar to the  
process I explained in the previous mail). Let me know if it still  
isn't not working.

Movies would be welcome.

To remove the Seaside banner on the bottom, you have to set the  
Deployment Mode of the Seaside application to be true. For this:
- go to localhost:8080/seaside/config (login: admin/seaside)
- choose to Configure the pier application

Re: Blueprint

I know this is pretty old, but I have been thinking along these lines
myself, since I didn't really want to have a login button on the
normal site.
