By the way: are the User cards included in the google search index? I don't see a robots exclusion tag!

--JCK.....Sun Nov 18 14:12:42 PST 2007

On a given Wagn, you can set all User cards, and all or particular inclusions on them, to be readable only by people who are signed in. See permissions for more on that. We don't yet have a way to do robot exclusion within Wagn but that seems like a good Idea, so: add a card for robots.txt.


For now, we removed birthdays from User+*type+*structure here on Emails are not visible anyway, and of course people can choose a pseudonym if they don't want to be publicly associated with Wagn :-). Hope that addresses your concern. --John

Is there a syntax guide/page/card?

For normal cards content there's markup, and for Search cards there's CQL Syntax. --John Abbe

When saving a basic card with a HTML table, Wagn removes all tags so that only the text remains.
This happens on a local installation as well as in the Wagn sandbox.

Yes, HTML is pretty restricted in Basic cards. This is by design, so that you can make Basic cards widely editable (even without being signed in) and not open up to a lot of problems. HTML cards allow any HTML.

Can anyone think of a problem with restricting who can view a Role?

Can you have a look at ? A big chunk of the card is outside of the edit box. Thanks. cquin

Since it was right after the SKDB card inclusion, i took that out to see if it fixed it and it did. So i put it back, and edited some extra HTML cruft out of the SKDB card, and now it looks fine.

When I switch to HTML mode in editor, a new browser tab is opened and the browser window is resized. Is it possible to configure TinyMCE to not open a new tab?

  --gcao.....Wed Feb 17 08:51:49 -0800 2010

interesting, it just opens a new window for me. wonder if that's something about your browser preferences?

  --Ethan McCutchen.....Thu Feb 18 13:36:30 -0800 2010

Yeah I'm using Firefox and set to always open new window in new tab

Does Wagn provide custom authentication support? For example I would like to authenticate users based on some content in request header.

--Navjeet Chabbewal.....2014-09-19 13:12:11 +0000

Not yet, but our recent overhaul of the account handling system (into cards) was done with a mind to opening up future pathways for kind of functionality.

--Ethan McCutchen.....2014-09-19 15:39:44 +0000

A follow up question on authentication. We have have a Rails app which has a pluggable authentication module. Is it possible to use this pluggable authentication gem into Wagn or can Wagn be plugged into my rails app?

--Navjeet Chabbewal.....2014-09-29 17:53:43 +0000

That was the plan when we reworked the account system. The general part and storage is now all in cards, so it should now be just a matter of writing the module for another authentication method. You could go outside the Wagn framework for auth and let those pages render and route as necessary, but we really favor a solution where you use Card models for data storage and views. Starting with the built-in auth, you probably just have to change most of the 'events' related to authentication.


Also, the Wagn as gem change makes in easier and more logical to use it as just another Rack application. I always intended for auth to move to one or more of the rack standards (Warden/Devise, maybe something newer).
