I'd like our memeber to have a private area to keep notes, sort of like a diary

Hello all,

Any idea how I can impliment a personal and private "blog" on the users page so they can jot down notes and thoughts that will be private and personal, i.e. sort of like a private diary for their eyes only.

Thanks,
Maurice

Not 100% sure what you want to achieve, Maurice, but here are a couple of areas to look at to see if they meet your needs:
  • Admin Zone Security Permissions Tree Editor Zone: CMS Module: cms_blogs … uncheck all the 'View access' boxes
  • Members [the member's] profile Edit Profile … box called 'About me' where one can keep personal information that cannot be viewed by other users

Hope that helps …!!

I was thinking that you could add a Custom Profile Field from the Tools>>Members area with type set to "A paragraph of text (no Comcode support) and the "Publicly viewable" option unchecked. The member could then maintain it as part of their profile.

I am not sure if this would allow creation of multiple paragraphs which it sounds like you might desire but it seems like it might be worth  shot.

Hi Fletch,
Thanks, I was sure I was on the right track, but I don't have cms_blogs in the list.  I did do a test install to experiment with and I was sure I saw it there, but now that I am doing a valid install, I can't find it.  Do you know how I can activate the blog code again?

Basically the users would have a link that would take them to their personal area to enter daily activities.  I work with ADHD/ADD, Aspergers and Autistic folks and the process of writing down thoughts and ramblings is a very good tool, especially if they can review it later in privacy. 

Thanks,
Maurice

News & Blogs are activated by default.

Have a look in the drop down menu in Admin Zone Contents. It is listed alphabetically.

Ahh, yes, I must have deselcted it during the initial install.  I have tried to install the add-on, but it returns an error...

PHP NOTICE [8] Array to string conversion in sources/lang.php on line 923 (version: 8.1.1, PHP version: 5.3.13, URL: /cubeuser/adminzone/index.php?page=admin_addons&type=addon_install&file=news.tar)

I guess now, no news is not good news :lol:

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
