With YACS 7.10 the loading will be faster. 25, 24, 23, ...
But the skin is great. 18, 17, 16, ...

Www.room42hairsalon.co.uk/yacs - nearly finished my skin :D

That's right LeToto, yet you need some on-line presence. 39, 38, 37, ...

Bye everyone!

Bernard Paques

Thanks Nick. 45, 44, 43, ...

Thus, when a problem is related, if there is a member online, he will have the possibility to give immediately his idea/solution.
NickR

BTW, this chat feature works really well.
And the way it ties in with comments - elegante !

Bernard Paques
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:36 pm GMT
Ok, so good bye to everybody. In one minute I will lock this page to turn it to a transcript, and you will just have to reload the link in the browser to have it on screen. 60, 59, 58, ...
Belmond
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:33 pm GMT
That's a good idea, B.
In fact, it would be interresting in the future to have a chat like this in the "Besoin d'aide"'s section of the Forum.
NickR

This chat has been useful

Bernard Paques
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:33 pm GMT
It was very nice to have this chat together, and we will manage to have such micro-events on a very regular basis.
Belmond

Have a nice night, ThierryP!

Bernard Paques
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:32 pm GMT
I will have to break the chat as well, because of all these bugs to fix before going to bed...

Pinelli, Thierry

Nick, there is a more natural way to turn this page to a transcript. You will see that in minutes, when we will stop the discussion.

Also, the link you are talking about to external scripts is exactly the purpose of YACS hooks. Except hooks let you the names and locations of invoked scripts. We definitely have to setup a future chat on this topic.

somehow I managed to get that by edditing a comment, notice it say 146 comments, but no paging :(

Bernard Paques
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:27 pm GMT
No problem, at the end of the discussion this will be turned to a permanent transcript for further reference...
NickR
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:26 pm GMT
LetToto, I believe it will saved.
Belmond
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:26 pm GMT
Hi! Excuse me, I don't want to disturb you. Is it possible to have a backup of this discussion? Thanks.
NickR
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:26 pm GMT
Bernard, no experience, just an idea. I was thinking: skin/article/headertemplate.php, skink/comment/commenttemplate.php

Bernard Paques
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:22 pm GMT
Nick, have you some experience of such templating system?
Hello LeToto...
NickR
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:20 pm GMT
Thats what I was thinking ALL html output should be like, in templates (like the skins), rather than hooks.

Bernard Paques
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:18 pm GMT
Exactly - good to have English-speaking people around...
NickR
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:17 pm GMT
Ah like a template :D

Bernard Paques
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:16 pm GMT
I am not sure to be clear here, but this is really simple to use, I can tell you...
NickR
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:16 pm GMT
I forgot about the hooks

Bernard Paques
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:13 pm GMT
Nick, the thing you are talking about exists. YACS has a number of hooks to include external code at key processing steps. Maybe this could be extended to new processing steps, but the idea has been implemented for a while.
Another feature of interest is the model pages. The idea is to create sample named pages in a dedicated hidden section. Then, from any section, you can reference one or several model pages, and this will be used for new articles. For example, to create a section dedicated to invoices, you would create a model invoice, and reference this model page in the invoicing section. Then, each time a new page will be added to this section, the invoice model will be duplicated to create a new invoice.
NickR

So we could do cool things like insert google adverts in the headings, or add a feedburner link next to the netvides link

Pinelli, Thierry
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:11 pm GMT
Excellent idea, maybe add query contact

That is to make more items editable, for example the code that generates the headings or the Stay tuned section, to make the output as customisable as possible.

Bernard Paques
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:09 pm GMT
That has been done for the 7.10 version, look at links at the bottom of this page. I forgot to mention this previously, sorry.
YACS now features a section for global pages, which are special named articles. At the moment we have: 'about', 'privacy', 'cover' and 'menu'.
NickR
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:08 pm GMT
You know I suggested some time ago about making about/privacy pages as editable articles, I have a further idea...

Bernard Paques
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:06 pm GMT
The accessibility page at your site reminds me that YACS do support some access keys, as demonstrated in page source. Also, a nice tip specially for you: at any form, hit [s] to submit data to the software. This also works here, in threads. Alt-Shift-S for Firefox...
NickR
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:04 pm GMT
I really should make a skin for my website.
That will do for my baby photos :D

Pinelli, Thierry
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:04 pm GMT
NickR : "Thierry likes his nice titles - I find my site does really well on google even without nice titles " The addition of nice title is not a optimization obligation , but it is one more which counts.

In the same way as the choice of the anchor of the link! Google use it for create this index.

You mean, you have a healthy baby?
NickR
on Oct. 11 2007 at 09:02 pm GMT
I have a new job
I am developing www.healthspace.nhs.uk

Bernard Paques

Link optimization,meaning the addition of titles to category links, is not part of yacs 7.10alpha8. But I have started to chase that in the code, and this is an on-going work...
Nick, do you have new web projects these days? Maybe you have prepared a nice photo album for the baby?

Pinelli, Thierry
on Oct. 11 2007 at 08:58 pm GMT
Telle me about category ! Link optimization are ready for Yacs 7.10 ?
