Hey guys I was wondering if anyone could help me...

I am trying to link from a readmore button in a single( it's like a services page) to pages in a structure. So instead of having a top level page in the structure I would like to have the top level page as a single and just link to it from there is this possible?

Hey Steven - Most of the crowd has moved on over to the Craft Stack Exchange site: https://craftcms.stackexchange.com/  You'll probably have better luck posting over there. :)

Hey All,

Im totally new with Craft CMS, so I totally lost of what I am supposed to do.

Im using http://roundhouse.github.io/FormBuilder-Craft-CMS/

I wish you guys could give an idea, on how to retain the values on the form after submission.

I am not sure what correct syntax to use. 

Thanks a lot.
I made this plugin because I was struggling to find something that'll let me generate multiple forms with custom fields. I didn't want to manually create markup for each field. Now using this plugin I can do that pretty easily. This is a first plugin I made for Craft CMS.

Is there a plugin for creating entries inside of the entries fields dialog?

Would be also nice to have a list of all entries of a specific section. Like the entries field but with all entries and the option to double click a entry for editing.

Hello Craft Devs,

I hope it's okay to post job/contractor inquiries here. We are looking for a Craft developer to:

1. take our exiting course catalog JSON data (~600 courses, ~20 fields per record, file is refreshed every 30 minutes),
2. re-create its records in Craft CMS,
3. allow us to supplement course records with additional data (about 10 boolean/text/tags/matrix fields) and
4. produce a JSON-based RESTful web service for (read-only) consumption on an external website (that external website is not part of this project).

We'd like to get a sense of how much this would cost and what the turnaround time is. If you're interested, please send me an email at mlewcio@ualberta.ca

Hey all,

Looking for some help here. I'm trying to get Craft up and running on a server, but for some reason I keep getting "Could not find your craft/ folder. Please ensure that $craftPath is set correctly in ../public/index.php." I know the path name is correct; it's a fresh install and all I've changed is the database info and the permissions. There's no PHP openbasedir restrictions set, so I'm really at a loss here. I've gotten Craft up and running on two other hosting services, but can't seem to get it right on this one.

I had this same problem. What is your hosting environment (OS/Server)? Also, you'll probably get a better response over on Craft Slack. This Google+ group is pretty dead these days.

I have a client (the editor of a blog) who's asking to be notified when authors in the system have a draft that is ready to be published. Right now we're suggesting that authors email him with a link to the draft when they're ready for it to be reviewed. But I think he's looking for a more automated/built-in way for a post to be marked as ready for review without actually going live (and potentially be notified via email when new posts are marked as ready).

Anyone have ideas if this would be possible maybe via a plugin? It almost seems like something would need to be updated on the system level in craft itself.

Hi +Dave Joyce. Just to mention it, you can create custom Notification Events for Sprout Email (http://sprout.barrelstrengthdesign.com/craft-plugins/email/docs/notifications/custom-events).

If we can clarify anything let me know, or drop us a note at sprout@barrelstrengthdesign.com. We'll consider adding support for changes in Draft status, but I can't promise a timeline. I expect it will only take a couple hours to get in place if you'd like to discuss it as a custom job.

It'd be righteous if you guys would update
/framework/vendors/markdown/markdown.php
to the latest version here:
https://github.com/michelf/php-markdown/blob/lib/Michelf/Markdown.php

I've got a pretty strong need to be able to use code like this:

[Google](http://google.com){#thisID .button}  
to render as:
<a href="http://google.com" id="thisID" class="button">Google</a>

There's a ton of other cool stuff here:

Sorry if this has been asked before... Are there any plans to have a SAS/Hosted version of Craft?

You mean like wordpress.com?

Short answer, no. In fact, I think that's a pretty strong no... I don't believe Pixel & Tonic has any interest in dealing with anyone's hosting.

If I'm mistaken, I'm sure someone will pop in here and correct me. :)

Hi Everyone,

I dont know if this has already been asked, but do you think you could create a way where we could choose from a list of templates to be used with the entry and not make it based on the folder / url ?

cheers :)

hi folks,

why i get a ajax error if i try to update a entry with enabled is "1"? if i set enabled to "0" it works. i have a detailspage of a task and i would implement a dropdown, where i can change the status by a entry form. e.x. from "new" to "accepted".  i'm logged in as superuser.

Hello everyone:

Great to see this community started.  May I suggest we include a general discussion category?  Sometimes I just want to talk about Craft without fitting in asking for help, or any of the other categories.

Hey,

I need to filter a sections entries by more than one category but only return entries that belong to all category id's passed in a URL parameter.

Now I can get the correct output if the id's are hard coded but not if contained in the URL parameter.

URL: ajax-swatches?cats=171,172,179

{% set catPars = craft.request.getParam('cats') %}

{% set swatches = craft.entries({ section: 'swatches', relatedTo: ['and',catPars] }) %}

I presume the 'relatedTo' section is treating the 'catPars' variable as a single entry and ignoring the ',' and next values?

Any help would be really appreciated :)

Question:  Is Craft okay to run atop MariaDB? The last update concerning MariaDB was Oct 2014. Am I safe to assume all is functional?
Norwegian Bokmål (nb) and Norwegian Nynorsk (nn) translations now fall back to plain ol' Norwegian (no) if they aren't available. Reduced the risk of a long-running request locking up the PHP session for other requests from the same browser. The assets.onBeforeDeleteAsset now supports setting ...

Hi I'm new to developing with craft and have a question regarding the craft.dev site. I've tried setting up a couple of plugins that use oAuth. However I'm experiencing issues with the third party logins using the .dev url and ssl certificates. Google only excepts top level domains for the re-direct and won't except the .dev so I can't even set up the API. I'm also using the beta social plugin but I am getting ssl certificate errors for Facebook and Twitter. Does anyone know of a solution for either problem?

Hey Mark,

You might have better luck asking about this on Craft's Stack Exchange site (http://craftcms.stackexchange.com/), or maybe the 'help' channel on Craft Slack (http://buildwithcraft.com/community#slack).
