I'm having a problem with something that I expected to be trivial:
I installed and have been running a Slash 2.2.6 site for a couple of
months. I've done some customization of the site regarding topics,
sections, colors, boxes, templates, polls, etc., with no problems.
However, now I need to create a 'feedback' topic which should not appear on the
homepage, but which all users should be able to view and post to.
Unfortunately, it seems to be that, no matter what permutation of Topic and
Section (standalone, etc.) options I use, posts always appear on the
homepage. Further, there appears to be no way for a normal user to
post to a topic in a 'Standalone' section, even if I provide a link to the
-- standalone sections appear to simply list stories posted to the section
without providing a means for users to submit new stories.
I've perused a few FAQs (slashcode, lottadot, etc.), slashcode-general and
'Running Weblogs with Slash,' to no avail. I'm wondering if, maybe, I
hosed something in my installation? Should I be using the CVS R_2_3_0_151
tag source instead? I'm considering hacking the database and the new user
scripts to, by default, exclude the 'feedback' topic from
the homepage, as can be done from the user-preferences page. However,
that seems like a kludgy way to do something that should be easy.
Thanks in advance,
