How To's / Re: Alfresco integration with Feng Office
« on: October 12, 2010, 09:55:42 am »
I don't know if you can link to the records management piece, but through CMIS you can link to an Alfresco Explorer space. I don't think Fengoffice has any CMIS support at this time.

How To's / Search
« on: September 27, 2010, 02:43:55 pm »
Is there a way to limit the search to specific characters. For example, if I want to search for @Action, I don't not want to see everything on site with @ or Action, which is currently what happens. I want to specifically search for @Action.

How To's / Filter Object Type values
« on: September 27, 2010, 02:20:32 pm »
I would like to filter tasks by Object Type value. So if I have Object Type 1 with some values,  I would like to know if it is possible to filter by the Object Type 1 values, or can you only filter by the Object Type.

How To's / Group By Object Type values
« on: September 24, 2010, 04:41:11 pm »
I've started using the Object Types for tasks. In particular I started setting Object Types for David Allen's Getting Things Done. So what I have is a GTD Object Type that is a selection list with @Action, @Delegate, @Defer, etc...  When I create a task I set the GTD object type.

So when I login and go to all my tasks, I can Group By Object Type and see GTD, but I cannot see the GTD groupings.

Does it make sense to do iut this way? Is there another way I should be approaching this?

Getting Started / Re: LDAP logout white screen

Thanks for the information. My method does allow AD users to use either the AD or FengOffice password.

I'm curious what you mean by this statement:
Watch out for little trick. if user is not listed in the domain, the user  can be added to the domain and someone use LDAP password to login and the user doesn't know what is happening

I thought the FengOffice LDAP connector, like many other ldap connectors I have encountered, is a read only browsing  connector. Plus, in my ldap config I use a read only account to bind to AD, the account has no write or change permissions. So how would it be possible to add someone to the domain?

The only advantage for the AD user to login with their FengOffice account is for something like the WEBDAV addon, which only uses FengOffice authentication. Otherwise the idea is to have users connect to the FengOffice web interface using the AD accounts first.

Ideas / CMS
« on: September 23, 2010, 11:06:38 pm »
I know this maybe way off the idea thread, but have the FengOffice team ever considered developing a CMS? You have done wonders with FengOffice, I'm guessing your team could create a great CMS. And a CMS integrated with FengOffice would be tremendous! Just a thought.

Development / Re: How to add WebDAV to FO
« on: September 23, 2010, 04:40:15 pm »
Nice work!

In some limited testing I have able to drag and drop from Windows into folders in the admin personal workspace.

I cannot create folders via webdav since there really are not folders in FengOffice, a workspace's documents object acts like a folder for the workspace. So it makes sense that you cannot create a folder via webdav. Not a big deal.

Via Windows Network Connection I can connect to the webdav as a "web folder." I can connect with accounts created in FengOffice but I end up in the admin personal workspace regardless of the FengOffice account used and I can add files to the admin personal webdav folder, something that shouldn't happen. I cannot login or access anything using AD accounts. I can login to FengOffice with AD accounts but I cannot access webdav with the AD accounts.

**** Note: Using Nautilus in Gnome, I can connect to FengOffice user personal workspace and not the admin personal worksapce.

In Firefox, and Internet Explorer with Show Friendly HTTP Error Messages turned off, I get the following when trying to connect to the webdav folder:

*** I just checked the SabreDAV site on and apparently this message indicates SabreDAV is setup correctly?

<s:message>GET is only implemented on File objects</s:message>

So while there are some issues this does look promising.


Getting Started / Re: LDAP logout white screen

I had asked:

One questions, what would it take to allow both AD and FengOffice authentication? We may have users outside AD who are not going to be admins that may be in the system. We woudl need authentication for these users.

The answer:

The following modification allows me to chain the authentication.

First try as FengOffice user admin
Second try as AD user
Third try as FengOffice user

if($config_ldap_is_set === true) {
   if ($user->isCompanyAdmin(owner_company())) {$userIsValidPassword = $user->isValidPassword($password);}
   elseif ($user->isValidPasswordLdap($username, $password, $config_ldap)) {$userIsValidPassword = $user->isValidPasswordLdap($username, $password, $config_ldap);}
   else {$userIsValidPassword = $user->isValidPassword($password);}
} else {
   $userIsValidPassword = $user->isValidPassword($password);

I tried writing this other ways but kept getting the white screen. The code as I have it does not give the white screen. It has been tested successfully with both AD users and FengOffice users.

Great set of instructions. I was finally able to get AD authentication working and have the ability to login with the non AD / FengOffice user admin account.  The port 3268 tip made a big difference. There are some other systems I use that I had been using port 389 which restricted AD logins. Glad to know that using port 3268 solves this issue.

Development / Re: LDAP 1.7 RC
« on: July 29, 2010, 11:12:32 am »
ldap config something liek this:

  $config_ldap = array (
      'binddn'    => 'CN=name,OU=someou,OU=someou,DC=somedc,DC=somedc,DC=somedc',
      'bindpw'    => 'password',
      'basedn'    => 'OU=someou,DC=somedc,DC=somedc,DC=somedc',
      'host'      => 'domain:389',
      'uid'       => 'cn' //Change in according with your settings to match the userid entry
  return true;

I have ldap working with Alfresco Community Edition and KnowledgeTree Community Edition. I have tried using the parameters from Alfresco and KnowledgeTree, nothing works.

Installation problems / 1.7 RC3 Upgrade issue
« on: June 28, 2010, 09:37:42 am »
Received error upgrading from 1.7 RC2 to 1.7 RC3:

Failed to execute DB schema transformations. MySQL said: Can't create table '<?php echo ?>administration_logs' (errno: 22)

Manually creating the table in MySQL worked.

How To's / Internet Explorer secure / non-secure SSL issue
« on: June 22, 2010, 07:47:47 am »
Using Fengoffice from a server with SSL. In Firefox, Chrome, etc, we get SSL without issue. IE8 displays the website contains both secure and non-secure content warning. Is there anything in Fengoffice that would cause this in IE8? Fengoffice is not alone, I also get this warning message in Alfresco and Liferay.

Any thoughts or ideas?

Feature requests / Re: List view filter by tag
« on: May 26, 2010, 12:06:58 am »
You can "filter" by tag by clicking on the tag in the tags list in the lower left. For example,select Filter: No Filter, Status: All, and Group By: Nothing, than click on a tag in the tag list. You will only see objects with that tag. I use this method to 'filter' certain tags. It sounds like you would like to see the tags list with the Filter, Status and Group By, correct?

Not quite sure what you are trying to describe, can you be more specific. Filtering various lists works for me in 1.7 RC2.

I'm running 1.7RC2 and I can filter the Milestone list and Tag list as I type text.
