Get Published hack

We all know of the default topic option. Does anyone have a hack to specify different topics for submission. For instance if I am in the Topic "Documentation" and I click Get Published it would automatically put Documentation in the Topic field. I don't know how many times I end up with a post in the wrong topic, usually the default.

No need for a hack - Geeklog already does that.

If your theme uses the {menu_elements} variable, it should already work. If it doesn't use that variable, you will need to make sure the link to the submission form reads
Text Formatted Code
<a href="{site_url}/submit.php?type=story{current_topic}">

I use {menu_elements} on all my sites with GL1.3.8 sr2. And none of them do that. Is it part of the theme or part of the core?

That "hack" doesn't work for me (I don't use {menu_elements}) all I get is the submit page "header" with the list "you must fill out all fields" and so on but nothing more

Hmm, works for me. Tested with Clean (uses menu_elements) and XSilver (no menu_elements) ...

Mine always come up with the default topic no matter where I am at when I click on Get Published.

In doing a little analysis I find this. My link for Get Published looks like this.

http://mysite....com/submit.php?type=story&topic=suggest

Suggest being the topic that I am in. When I click on it it goes to that link then a second later goes to this.

http://mysite....com/1admin/story.php?mode=edit

The topic field shows the default topic "Community News" instead of the topic "Suggest".

It should work for normal users, though. Can't remember if it ever worked for (Story) Admins or was even intended to work for them ...

bye, Dirk
