I think I am doing some thing wrong.
I have a download section called Graphics and smilies and I want the comments to be made on a forum called Graphics and Smilies.

I tried this

Code

:set_value('comment_forum__downloads__Graphics_and_smilies','Graphics and Smilies.');:
and this

Code

:set_value('comment_forum__downloads__Graphics and smilies','Graphics and Smilies.');:
In the terminal thingy

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

Amy,

There appear to be double 'underscores' between 'forum' & 'downloads' and 'downloads' & 'Graphics' in your OcCLE command line instruction …!!

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

I think it has the same amount as the code used for catalogs.

Code

:set_value('comment_forum__catalogues__example','Comments for example');

You could be right it might be different for downloads then for catalogs.

Not sure if it's intentional, however your first two examples have a colon at the end but should only have a semi-colon.

That's not a feature. It can be done for individual catalogues, and individual modules (e.g. 'comment_forum__downloads'), but not individual categories.

Oh darn I wanted different types of downloads going to different types of forums.
Hmm I could edit the theme and just make the topics and have a link on the download page.

I just wanted theme downloads under themes forums and the graphics and smilie downloads under smilie forum.

Any way thanks.

Yes although I'm still at home. Got some important emails etc to reply to so I thought I'd go through the forum whilst I'm at it.
I'm fixing some bugs too but there's so much I think I'm going to avoid replying to all the individual topics.

oh well thanks for replying to mine.
To bad this is not a feature but I will just change how I am doing it.

How do you add a field to the downloads screen?

That's not a feature either I'm afraid. You'll need to add any extra info into the description.

I was doing some thinking on this and came up with some interesting ideas.
1. I could install 4 different installs of ocportal.

The other was a suggestion for you. Not sure how easy it would be or how hard but I have seen it done in other systems.

Let me just start with an example of a script that does this.
The arcade can be set to make topics for scores so if the score is beaten it posts in that topic. You can move the topic to a different forum and it will still post in that topic. Looking in the database to see how it knows which topic to post in I see it keeps the topic idea in the game table.

What would be kind of neat is if ocportals comment topic was able to be moved to a different forum and yet still have all topics going to it.

Any way just an idea I thought of this morning.
