Subject RE: using templates which are not in the roller database but on the file system
Date Wed, 20 Aug 2008 13:42:11 GMT
Hi Dave,
Thanks for the reply.

Could you send an example of a page Model plug-in for starters?

I would like Roller to pull the styles, images, header and footer files
from a directory. I was wondering if these files could be placed in the
upload directory, or would the plugin approach be best. I notice there
is a max size of files to be uploaded currently set to 4 mb, I would
have to increase this value, plus the fact that it doesn't allow nested
directories in the upload.dirs. Can we set more that one upload

I think the plug-in approach would best suit me. I would greatly
appreciate if you could send me on a few page model plug-in examples.
(or a URL to them)

Many Thanks Colm

None of the Roller macros or page model objects support that.

If you've got some Java dev expertise, you could write a Page Model
plugin to do it.
