While working for lasentinel, I was having some issues with the MOStlyCE editor, the problem was that there wasn’t a way to let the CMS administrator to upload images, media, etc. because it was throwing a js error, related to a callback function parameter: advimage_image_browser_callback.
The first thing I discovered, is that there was missing the UserFiles directory, if you want to allow your users to upload files for the articles they write, you have to search inside the mambots/editor/mostlyce for a compressed file, just extract these files in the /UserFiles directory.
But even when I did that, and configured one more time the MOStlyCE admin with the correct configuration, it was still throwing errors, I didn’t know why, so I tried to delete the molstyce admin module and mostlyce mambot and reinstall it again, but it was failing with the same errors.
The solution? I installed MOStlyCE 3.1. It looks much better than before and works fine with mambo.
So if you are having trouble with MOStlyCE in mambo (and I know there are a lot of people out there with that problem), don’t break your head, just uninstall the MOStlyCE admin component and MOStlyCE mambot, install the last version of MOStlyCE, search for the UserFiles.zip archive and extract to /UserFiles, set up the component in the administration screen and that’s all
Now that rails 2.3.2 was released (the current version is rails 188.8.131.52), the rails team is following the road to rails 3.0, which means two things:
- There won’t be a 2.4 version
- You can expect a lot of new changes in the version 3.0
There would be a lot of changes in the rails internals, wich means that the plugins would probably need to be rewritten for rails 3.0.
The most exciting thing we will see in rails 3.0, is that merb is gonna be merged into rails, you can read the details here, here, here, here and here.
Rails 3.0 will also allow you to merge a complete ruby application inside another ruby application, with this feature, it will be probably possible to merge a complete forum, a complete gallery application, or whatever into your application in a easy way.
I just updated the content of Los Angeles Sentinel, feel free to visit and read the new articles

In the next days, I’ll be working on a dance site that is being built in rails.
This is a exciting news since I love dancing, and I was missing working with rails.
My first task is to customize the shopping section using Liquid Markup.
But I’m sure I’ll be get more important tasks in the near future.
I was assigned the task to update the newspaper “The Lost Angeles Sentinel”.
While working there, I’ll be doing major fixes and design improvements. If I’m lucky, I’ll be allowed to migrate the site to joomla 1.5.9 with a new a cool graphic design.
After being offline for about two years, I decided it was time to be online again although it’s going to be some kind of hard work, because I should fill the site with the things I’m doing, the sites I’m working on, photos, etc.
Even worse, I have to write each post twice, once in English and another one in Spanish.
I will try to write most of my articles about rails, and ruby, since I love the framework and language, but I’ll be also writing articles about PHP, symfony and django, as well as stuff about my personal life, or sites that I deploy.
Thank you all and one more time, welcome to my page
