MichaelNCan't put a link to a local file in a topic? [07:41]
MichaelDaumMichaelN, why not [07:44]
MichaelNI'm not sure I put in html code to simply link to a .html file that just says "hello" but it won't load.
I'm running foswiki 2.0 on ubuntu
here is the html code that I put in using the html editor:
<a href= "file:///home/mike/desktop/testfolder/hello.html"> hello World </a>
if I hover over the link it shows the correct path
I've also disabled the firefox defaults so I know it should work as I tested it
[07:56]
hi michael did you catch any of that? I just got booted for some reason [08:05]
MichaelDaumyes I did ... trying to wrap my mind around this ... no coffee yet
what happens if you paste the link into the address bar of your browser?
[08:06]
MichaelNhaha yeah 4am over here [08:06]
MichaelDaumso no Foswiki involved [08:07]
MichaelNworks fine [08:07]
MichaelDaumthere is a space between = and "file, isnt there? [08:08]
MichaelNsorry there shouldn't be I typed that out and didn't copy/paste here [08:09]
MichaelDaumokay
could be a restriction of the browser: my javascript console says - not allowed to load resource
see https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Security/HTTP_strict_transport_security
[08:09]
MichaelNhmmm...I'm not really that tech savvy but if it works when I put in the path shouldn't it work on foswiki as well?
I also did this to allow local file
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/192080/firefox-links-to-local-or-network-pages-do-not-work
[08:17]
MichaelDaumit seems this is blocked by all modern browsers
for security reasons
even javascript does not work such as window.open("file://...");
[08:25]
MichaelNso I won't be able to link a local file?
like this says http://foswiki.org/Support/Faq72
[08:27]
ColasIt would be a MAJOR security hole
so all browsers try to prevent it
[08:28]
MichaelNI just want to do it for testing purposes while I learn html and foswiki [08:29]
Colasthe solution is to install a simple web service (a cgi script for instance) that read the file and gives it to you via the web server
ah ok. So you have learned that it is not possible in html :-)
[08:29]
MichaelNOk I think I got it, so I make something act like it is connecting to an actual website
or rather trying to grab a file
[08:30]
MichaelDaumor upload it into foswiki [08:31]
Colasyep. ti you have a real need (there are solutions), or are you just learning foswiki+html (then do not go this way, it will just confuse you)
s/ti/do/
[08:31]
MichaelNthanks [08:32]
Colasor just "attach" the file like MichaelDaum suggests [08:32]
MichaelDaumColas, happy birthday! [08:32]
ColasThanks MichaelDaum ! [08:32]
MichaelNif I do the "attach" can I manipulate the html file too like doing an iframe?
(happy birthday colas!)
[08:33]
ColasThanks MichaelN! [08:34]
MichaelDaumColas, what are you doing in here? get yourself comfi in an armchair, a warm cover on your knees and let the coagulators lay the gifts to your feet.
... this all being reasonably drunken
[08:36]
..... (idle for 20mn)
MichaelNok, answered my own question. I was able to put that file in an iframe within the topic
but the frameborder attribute isn't working
Ok, it's 5am now...sleep now.
Thanks guys!
I will be around to bug you some more now that I know people actually use this!
[08:57]
Colas<MichaelDaum> Colas, what are you doing in here? ... actually I decided to go surfing! ... moving to France Southwest to remote work and surf as much as I can before being too old. We'll move there in May [09:00]
MichaelDaumback to the see - back to the roots
MichaelN, nite

loopforeverhi all...i noticed a bug with the ActionTrackerPlugin on 2.x ... I believe it pertains to a new parameter being added to URL loaded inside modals ("?origin=xxx")
im trying to fix it, but i'm not familiar with the code -- can anyone point me in the right direction?
the "origin" parameter may contain the "#" symbol, which, depending on the order of the query string parameters passed to the modal, causes everything after the "#" to be excluded from the URI
ie. # has special meaning in the URI, it's interpreted as an anchor tag and everything that follows is discarded

fsfsinteresting, the open tasks list for WebDAVContrib is empty when I'm not logged in, but correctly contains my two NEW tasks after login. The "Closed Items" list on the other hand contains both closed and NEW, irrespective of login status. Is that a known issue, or is it just me? [15:55]
CDotloopforever: If you can provide more information about what you are seeing, and where you are seeing it, then I might be able to advise.
fsfs: that's an odd one. I see it too.

loopforeverhi all...i just tried to register on foswiki.org so that I could submit a few bug reports...but I think the registration process might be broken: after submitting the initial registration form you are presented with a CSRF warning...and once you click through that, no e-mail is sent with your activation code [18:21]
vrurgHi all. Cannot find it in the docs so asking here. It’s about git and tasks. If need a branch for solely testing purpose and it’s very likely that the code won’t make it into any release – do I still have to have a task item for that? My guess is ‘yes, I have’ but I’d like to clear it up for myself.
loopforever: try again. Most likely your submission has been ignored.
[18:21]
loopforevervrurg: just did, now it claims that my e-mail address is already registered
so perhaps there's an issue with the mail server
activation emails not being sent
[18:24]
vrurgloopforever: you may try resetting password now. BTW, any chance that email has landed in spam? [18:26]
loopforeverchecked spam, nothing there
password reset is unavailable, the username is not found yet, i guess because it's not active yet
[18:28]
vrurgOk, then it’s a question for admins. I had similar problem on my local setup, had to fix it manually. It seems that user registration isn’t atomic. [18:31]
fsfsvrurg: there is a commit-msg hook in .git/hooks which enforces the "Item0000: ..." commit message syntax, and also checks if the Item is open/accepting commits [18:40]
FoswikiBothttp://foswiki.org/Tasks/Item0000 [18:40]
fsfsvrurg: I think you can just disable the hook (delete the symlink) if you want, but if you then try to push something non-compliant the hook on the other side will slap you [18:43]
vrurgfsfs: That’s why I guessed I’ll need a task. Just found few other experimental tasks, so it seems like a common practice.
Thanks!

vrurgIs anybody here to help understand META implementation? [20:59]
..... (idle for 22mn)
harlanIs there a way to allow certain folks to add content using %COMMENT% without opening up the entire topic to being changed? [21:21]
vrurgharlan: Do you mean the target parameter of %COMMENT%? [21:23]
harlanI want to let folks add comments via a comment box, but that's all I want them to be able to add. [21:32]
vrurgThen this is what you need. %COMMENT{target=‘SomeWeb.SomeTopic#Anchor’ type=‘below’}% – just like in http://foswiki.org/System/CommentPlugin
There is type=‘return’ which you shall consider.
[21:35]
harlanYes, but doesn't the user need permission to modify the topic in that case?
Ill read though, thanks!
[21:36]
vrurgCustom access controls
Using configure, the plugin can be configured to use a different access control domain than the default CHANGE. This allows you to use the plugin to add content to topics where the commenting user does not have CHANGE (or even VIEW) access.
[21:36]
harlanperfect - thanks! [21:37]
vrurgUse the docs, Luke! ;) [21:37]
harlan:) [21:38]
