CGI::WeT::Modules::News are Perl extensions to engine to allow article management.
use CGI::WeT::Modules::News ();
This module provides rendering constructs to allow navigation through a set of articles. Support is provided for multiple types of articles in multiple groupings (or channels).
This subroutine will initialize the engine passed as $engine with information from Apache (passed as $r). The base URL for articles is set with the following.
PerlSetVar WeT_NewsURL /baseURL/
This is available for building URLs as @@NEWS@@. For example, general articles are under the URL returned by
The directory may likewise be found by using
This extension will insert a summary of available news items starting with the most recent (ordered by submission time). The top of the content stack is applied to each item as a template.
The template used is called with four elements on the content stack: Title, Date, Author, and Summary (Title on top of stack). The available arguments for controlling NEWS_SUMMARY are
This argument specifies which channel to collect items from. This defaults to `general.'
This argument specifies which category to collect items from. Only one category may be specified at this time. There is no way to block items marked as `all.' The default category is `all.'
If this is set to `title,' the title will be made a link. No other value has an effect.
This tells NEWS_SUMMARY how many items to put in the list. There is no default for this argument, so one must be supplied.
This extension is like CGI::WeT::Modules::Basic's LINK in that the top of the content stack is made into a link. The location is determined by the values of the arguments.
This can be either `story' or `response.' If `story,' then the articles in the top level are looked at. Otherwise, the articles in the current directory are examined.
This can be either `next' or `prev.'
What's New in This Release:
Removed CGI::WeT::User from distribution as non-germane.
True sub-class of CGI, so can handle both procedural and object-oriented interfaces.
Added mod-perl handler to replace scripts/chooser.cgi.
chooser.cgi is not Y2K complient - CGI::WeT::Chooser is.
