Hi, fellow Luminis developers.
We are migrating to Luminis 22.214.171.124. We are starting "fresh" ....
1) I would like to know best practices for adding "homegrown" content on the server (example: html you wrote, jpg used in a Targed Content Channel, jsp, xml, etc). Currently (4.1.x - Production), we host much of our homegrown content in a subdirectories under a directory similar to the following:
I believe the reason we chose to do this is so it was easy to navigate to via the browser. http://xxx.shu.edu/setonContent/rss/systemUpdates.xml would be an example.
In the new environment, we would like to protect some of the content under /usr/luminis/webapps/luminis/setonContent/ so it cannot be bookmarked. The jsps we already have protected in the JSP logic itself. But some of our xml feeds can be bookmarked if the user is savvy enough to figure out the URL.
In the past I have written a filter so that all files in this directory and all subdirectories were protected (in our dev env). However, I overdid it, and I blocked even luminis from displaying the content -- which wasn't pretty when I logged in to our test environment. :)
So, finally, the question! Where do you put your own image files (for example, images or pdf files you might use in a targeted content channel of HTML type?) and how do you refer to them in JAVA, JSPs and HTML?
Is this what the /usr/luminis/webapps/luminis/cps directory is all about?
2) Categories for channels - any best practices here? Our current channel category structure has become a bit mish-moshy over the past couple of years.
We have found subcategories painful to navigate as an admin. Also, the Manage Targeted Content Channels view does not show the categories. We are mostly concerned with Categories from a luminis admin point of view (how to find a channel you are asked to modify, etc), as most users do not add there own content, although, they are welcome to add some subscribable channels we created.
I'm sure I have more questions.
