How do categories work in the CMS?
By patvdv at 18 May 2008 - 22:10

Categories allow content to be tagged with a random number of identifiers (or 'terms' in taxonomy speak). These categories are presented as input fields at the top of the page during the submission of content. Content types in the CMS (such as blogs, pages, web links etc) may have one or more categories defined. Available categories can also be different between content types.

 

The Baanboard CMS has been configured with 4 categories (or in taxonomy speak 'vocabularies') by default:

  • Knowledge/Type
  • Organization/Source
  • Language
  • Product/Service

The Knowledge/Type & Language categories are set up with a pre-defined list of selectable values. These will be presented as drop-down lists when you add your content to the CMS. On the other hand the Organization/Source & Product/Service will present contributors with a free-form input field. This will allow contributors to enter terms that may not have been available before. These free-form input fields support AJAX-based field completion so that already available values will be displayed as you type in your term.

 

Note that some content types may be defined with mandatory categories. In that case you must enter a value for that category before you can submit your content.Such mandatory categories are indicated by a *


What happened to the donation system?
By patvdv at 18 May 2008 - 21:42

The previous donation system has been removed due to a lack of interest. If you really do want to support the site then you can best do by contributing content such as maintaining a blog, answering forum questions etc.


How does the commenting system work?
By patvdv at 18 May 2008 - 21:40

The Baanboard CMS supports a system of adding comments to a set of the available content types. By default these comments will be logged as forum posts into the appropriate sub-forum of the CMS - Forum Integration forum group. For each of the following content types a corresponding forum thread will be opened automatically at creation time:

  • blogs
  • (book) pages
  • polls
  • stories
  • web links

Forum posts added as comment will also be shown on the corresponding CMS page and vice versa. In each case, these discussions are one and the same thing, they are just being displayed in multiple locations for convenience.

 

Members can add new comments and/or reply to existing comments in both locations, i.e. in the forum thread or at the CMS.


How can I search for resumes/CV or potential job seekers?
By patvdv at 18 May 2008 - 17:01

If you are a recruiter and would like to search for resumes and/or professionals which are looking for a new job, then you will have a number of options:

 

  1. Use the Site Search (and Advanced Search) feature to look for keywords that have been posted as part of member resumes. Note that the content of attached resumes in document format will not be indexed by the search engine and will hence not show up in your search query results.
  2. If job seekers apply to any of your existing job postings via the Apply for this job feature, then you will be able to track these application in your own Job applications screen, see My Baanboard > My Job Applications.
