SNN Alter Subject and Audience after article creation?

Asked by mallow on 2007-07-27

This was a question I asked inside of another answer but I see why not to do that so I will ask it again in it's own section

When you first create a Silva article (or agenda) you get the option of choosing subjects and audiences (predefined by the administrator of the ZMI interface). I have yet to find a way to change these selections once the article has been created, I've looked everywhere and to my knowledge such a feature does not exist.

Kit Blake suggested to me on 2007-07-20:
"The author needs to edit the document (make a new version) again, and then the subjects can be changed."

Do you mean that the author would create a new article with a new id and then redo those selections and copy and paste the article again?
If so, isn't that counterintuitive given that the editor might not approve of the sections the author categorized his article?
Silva by default has the ability to create new versions of articles within that article to prevent having multiple references to the same updated article?

I do have the tendency to have a hard time to see what is right in front my nose so if there is a button that has this feature it would be great, but if the latter is true then is this a feature currently underdevelopment?

Thanks for all your help Kit I appreciate your patience with me.... you have been a great help. :-)

I think you''ve found a bug with SNN running in Silva 2.0. The subjects and target audiences *should* show up in a Kupu toolbox. At the top, before the link toolbox. So you can also change them after creation. But we haven't had time to test or fix this. It'll happen but I'm not sure when.

Thanks Kit Blake, that solved my question.

Is there anything I can do to help?

Kit Blake (kitblake) said : #4

Thanks, but you would have to dive into Kupu's javascript. Hopefully it's not hard to fix for someone who already knows it.

I've fixed this in a branch of SilvaNews, which is yet to be merged with the SilvaNews trunk, here:
https://viewvc.infrae.com/svn/SilvaNews/branch/SilvaNews_for_Silva2.0_aaltepet

I recall I also needed to adjust kupu itself a bit, which is now in the Silva trunk, here:
https://viewvc.infrae.com/svn/Silva/trunk

I don't know infraes plans for releasing the new SNN, that will include my major overhaul. It probably won't be until Silva 2.1, since there are major changes to Silva as well.

If you want, I can track down the fix (it was rather easy), and prepare an SNN release for you...

yeah that would be great, I don't know how to get things off of the trunk
and back into their respected places. Help in that department will be
greatly appreciated.

After speaking with thisfred, I think I'll do an official release of SNN for Silva 2.0 that addresses a number of issues related to Silva 2.0 / Zope 2.10. I've fixed all that I've found, now I just need to find those bugfixes and do a release. So, I hope soon (next week or shortly thereafter) to have that finished.
