    I have a feeling that there's something a bit weird with the way the SVN hooks to github are working - I'll update this thread after I've had a chance to look into things a bit later today.

    It seems the github svn interface isn't working for some reason at the moment - I've manually updated the release on the module page though, so you should be able to download and go. I've just installed a fresh 2.4.0 with external-content module, the filesystem-connector module, and the CMIS connector module. Let me know how you go.

    Hi Marcus,

    Great module and im really hoping i can get it working.
    I have installed all 3 modules and have run a dev build.
    Setup the filesystem connector to my folder path 'assets/'

    When creating a new file system page i dont get any of the files.
    (Screenshot attached)

    When savnig and viewing from the front page i get a blank page with 'Template not found for '

    Im obviously doing something stupid but i cant figure it out!
    Thanks
    Craig

    Would this be something I could use to pull in content from a WordPress site to an SS site?

    UncleCheese: Yes, you'd have to write a connector for it to retrieve the content in a method that fits within the framework, but that's exactly the purpose for the external content module as a whole. Contact me on skype if you've got some more specific questions if you're going to have a go at it (nyeholt is my skype username). The next iteration of development will be to improve the import functionality to be more flexible and support custom import forms, which I'll try and get moving on soon if you're going to be writing some stuff for wordpress.

    innyinskip: I'll have a check later this evening and get back to you in this thread.

    innyinskip - when you created the file system connector, what did you put as the filepath? You'll need to use either the full path, or set the

    FileSystemContentSource::$base_path = '/path/to/files';

    static variable that limits the prefix of the filepath location to a particular subfolder. Once you set this variable and save the filesystem connector, the tree should refresh and show a list of files.

    Hi Marcus,

    Thanks for that. I did try the base path in the config but still no joy.

    I want to use the assets folder for the path so all im using as the path is '/assets/'
    Im guessing this is wrong otherwise it would be working lol!

    Thanks alot
    Craig
