Discuss This! (The Module —)

The following documentation is about the Discuss This! module.

The concept of the Discuss This! module is simple:

Let users comment your pages but force them to do so in your Forum.

Insert Node Parameter: repeat (6-1.2) [no content]

The repeat keyword is used to repeat the filtering on the data just inserted. This is particularly useful with the asterisk name or on nodes that do not otherwise include a format that transforms the tags included in themselves.

This let you create nodes that are like macros.

Note that the macro can itself include a repeat in one of its Insert Node tags.1

  • 1. As far as I can tell, this will not create recursive calls, however, if you have a problem with a macro using repeat, try to remove the keyword to see if that solves the problem. If so, let me know by

Insert Nodes used as a macro (6.x-1.2)

This module can be used to create macros (as pointed out by one of our user in a Drupal issue.)

The following steps show you how you can create a macro with the Insert Node module.

Create the Macro

First, create a node that is to become the macro. We will call this node macro. It is used without the Insert Node filter so the Insert Node tags do not get changed. This is important since we reference the main node (with the asterisk) and that reference would look like a recursive reference.

One idea is to use the macro as a PayPal button which gets set with parameters from another node. ...

Insert Node Known Issues

The following are problems that have not been resolved and will probably not be.

Tag not transformed

At times, you enter the tag as in [node:123 cck=title] and it is not converted by the filter.

There are 3 common reasons for this to append:

  1. You did not select the filter in your Input formats;
  2. You did not select the format that uses the filter in that node; or
  3. There is a syntax error in the tag.

The 3rd one is certainly the most likely explanation once you made sure that the filter was effectively selected for that node. In many cases, it will be the missing ...

Projects Similar to Insert Node

Link Node

There is a Link Node project that can be used to generate a link to a node using the node title or another user specified title.

This is similar to using the following with Insert Node:

   [node:<name> title=<my link>;]

Insert View

If you want to include a view, use the insert_view module instead.

Insert Block

If you want to include blocks in your nodes (or other blocks, scary, hey?!), use the insert_block module instead.

 


If you know or have a similar project, please, feel free to post a comment below and I will add it to the list.

Insert Node Examples

To send someone back to your home page:

  You will find the necessary links on my home page: [node:home link]

To include a hidden node as a reference in a post:

  I talked about that in my post yesterday. [node:yesterday_post_name body collapsed]

To include a node from a forum or story and keep the comments:

  See below: [node:57 themed comments]

Insert Node Parameter: booktree (6-1.2)

If you have books and you are using the booktree module, then you can insert a book tree in another node using the Insert node module with the booktree parameter.

The book tree will start with the specified node.

See Also: Insert Node Parameter: cck (6-1.2)

IMPORTANT NOTE

This parameter is an extension that should be part of the booktree module and not of the Insert Node. It made not be supported in future versions (3.x, D7...)

The Insert Node module verifies that the user has permission to view that book tree. If not, nothing is output which means that the tag may instead generate ...

Insert Node Parameter: cck (6-1.2)

The CCK parameter let you insert one of your CCK field and some node fields that cannot otherwise be added without being themed.

We support CCK fields and several special field names as follow.

Fields that appeared after version 6-1.2 have a version specified between parenthesis (i.e. 6-1.3).

cck=field_<name>; [requires CCK]

The CCK parameter must be followed by a field name. An empty name is likely to generate an error. The name of a field that does not exist is likely to generate nothing.

For instance, if you have a field named see_also, you would write:

   cck=field_see_also;

Insert Node Parameter: modified (6-1.0)

This parameter inserts the date when the node was last modified.

Note that a node that was never edited does not have a modification date. When that happens, the creation date is used instead.

The date is formatted using the default format date function (see the Drupal format_date() function.)

CSS Class: span.insert-node-date

Theme: InsertNode_modified

See Also: Insert Node Parameter: created (6-1.0)

Insert Node Parameter: created (6-1.0)

This parameter inserts the date when the specified node was created.

The date format defined for the site is used to display the date (see the Drupal function named format_date().)

CSS Class: span.insert-node-date

Theme: InsertNode_created
