Antville Macros
Monday, 2. September 2002
<% story.topic %>

This macro can be used to display the topic a story belongs to: either as text, link or image. As a minimum you need the following:

<% story.topic %>

This will display the name of the topic as link to the main page of the topic.

<% story.topic as="text" %>

will display the name of the topic just as plain text. Now using the attribute as="image" is a bit more complex:

<% story.topic as="image" %>

What will happen now? Assuming you have a story that belongs to the topic "topicmaps", Antville will search in the imagepool of your weblog for an image with the name "topictopicmaps". The prefix "topic" is added by default, but you can customize this too:

<% story.topic as="image" imgprefix="icon_" %>

Antville will then search for an image named "icon_topicmaps". If it finds one it will display it as link to the main page of the topic.

Re: <% story.topic %>

There is a problem with this macro. If the topic you are linking to has spaces in it, for example "bodyforlife links" then the macro tries to open /bodyforlife+links instead of /bodyforlife links.

This results in an error that the URL cannot be found.

... Comment

would be great to add this possibilities to story/comment.creator as well.

so if you use:

<% story.creator as="image" %>

it should search the imagepool for a picture called 'usericon_paradeiser'

of corse it would be better using a global imagepool for usericons, but for now it would help a lot even just using the weblogs one...

as="link"

seems like you have to use the as="link" feature now to have a link to the topic list.
