Hi people: This is my first post in this list :) I am starting a personal
web site for informal tourism in Argentina. The intention is not to do money
but have fun with a friend of mine that studies tourism. In the website,
there are lots of thing that would be very nice and fast to do it with pier
(I've been playing with it and seems to be wonderful): posts, blogs, wiki
pages, and so on. However, I have others "requirements" that are very
specific and they are not like CMS....So, I start looking to Pier (I already
know something about seaside). And I have some questions:
1) Pier persistence. I think I can use image and magma persistence. Is this
right? Is somewhere explain it how to do it with magma?
2) My application has its own "business" objects like destinies, user,
companies, trips, and so on. So, I need persistence for this model. Here,
can I use whatever I want? I want to test squeakDBX for example, can I use
it ? regarding of the effort of this? Or I must use the persistence strategy
I use for Pier ?
3) Suppose there are users that can register in my site, and there is a crud
of User. But, that's MY User. I mean, User class will have attributes of MY
application. However, I still need a user for Pier, so that to let the user
post, create blogs, etc....How can I do this?
4) As I said I have requirements that are not related with CMS. How can I do
them? Create my own seaside component? extends PRComponent? How can I add my
component to a pier component then ? In fact, the main question is, can I
easily have requirements that are not Pier using Pier hahah?
5) What's the pier-omnibrowser ? what is for ? Documentation somewhere?
6) How can I change Pier styles (css). For example, I would like to change
the height of the div of the header. Or the bottoms of the menu. Or put a
background in all the site.
7) Is there some tutorial ?
That's all for now. I am very exited with Pier and hope to use it :)
Ahh I use Pier 1.1.
I would like to increase the number of news displayed by the component
titled "What's new". Currently, only 3 elements is displayed.
Is there a way to increase it?

Greetings from Southern California!
I am trying to copy and paste text from an existing Microsoft Word document to the Pier website. I keep getting a message that my input is invalid. I have tried saving it first as rich text and plain text but in every case get the same error message. Is there a way for me to do this without typing it over again? What characters are not allowed?
Thank you for your help!
I thought that pier generated image urls to could be served from the
/files directory via apache? Is there something I need to enable for this?
I just look and saw an image url being
I am succesfully serving my first Pier project through Apache with the
exception of this one css file(?). I am unsure where it is supposed to come
from as it is stored as "unknown" in a /files subdirectory. In firebug it it
is listed in the <head> section as /environment/css?view=PRDownloadView but
when expanded it looks like the entire html of the page is being
Thanks in advance
