Hi everybody, At my website user can publish articles and upload images to it. So when administrator delete an article, images doesn't delete from images/content_type/article_id folder. Has administrator delete images folder manually?
I think I've told you this before. The SEBLOD team do not implement new features just because the community requests it. That is not what an Open Source project is about.
SEBLOD is on GitHub. If you want to see a change, you can do it and submit it. OR you can pay someone to do it and submit it so the community can benefit
You can contact Octopoos if you have a specific feature request for a project of yours and you have a budget for Octopoos to develop the functionality for you.
You can create an indiegogo or kickstarter campaign if you want to get others on board to raise the money in order to get certain features implemented.
You must understand that SEBLOD is an enormous piece of software. It's not just a simple component for Joomla. With the size and scope of SEBLOD, think about how many 'features' are possible... it's infinite. It really is infinite if you think about it. The Octopoos team will continue to release features to the community and make it available freely if it's a part of the SEBLOD Core Package, but these features come from client-driven projects or paid requests from the community.
I think I have very good news from Octopoos. They've said its going to take them 4/5 days to implement this feature, but they will only charge for 2 days (1120 euro), the rest will be covered from Octopoos. I hope its going to be for SEBLOD and not only for me. If it's for SEBLOD I can afford 2-300 euros and for the rest I will really create an indiegogo or kickstarter campaign like James suggested.
Do you think we will succeed to collect this money soon for this feature?
James, thank you for enlightening us for this kind of feature requests, of course that we are all for the money in the game.
Just imagine SEBLOD able to delete the associated files with the deleted articles from the front end automatically, this will be the best option in SEBLOD since a lot of time.
I think it would be great if Viktor Iwan, who is a long term member and supporter of the SEBLOD community, can make some money on this job.
So I would prefer raising some money for him and then release his code as a pull request on github so everyone can benefit.
It is not that I don't want Octopoos to earn money from this. They have done a tremendous job so far and would definitely deserve it. But I think they have enough to code on already and maybe Viktor Iwan can come up with a better offer also ;-)
@geeber, you are right but not for this project I don't think. Ricco has already set it up and if Octopoos do it it will be very quickly integrated in to the SEBLOD Core package. We are looking in to ways of encouraging more business partnerships like you described through seblod.com because we also think this activity in the community would be great.
