Add Pebble to a TeamForge project

When the site administrator has made the sample Pebble blogging application available, project administrators can add it as one of their project tools.

When you add Pebble to your project, it works just like the other TeamForge tools, with features such as authorization, authentication, go-urls, association, linkification, templating, Project Page components, and source code management support.

For this example, we'll call your project "testproject" and we'll assume you have Project Admin rights in that project.

  1. Click PROJECT ADMIN from the Project Home menu.
  2. Click Tools to see the list of integrated applications available in the site.
  3. Click Add Tool.
  4. Select Pebble Blog from the list of tools displayed. Set the values that make sense for your TeamForge installation, then click Save.
    Option Description
    Prefix Specify a unique alphanumeric string that will identify this tool throughout the site. For example, suppose you set your prefix to ZZ. Entering ZZ_20100612 in the Jump to ID box will get you all blog posts on June 12, 2010 in the "testproject" project. Another may also add Pebble as a tool, with a prefix of YY. Jumping to YY_20100101 will get all the blog posts on January 1, 2010 from that project.
    Note: The tool prefix cannot be changed after you have set it. Your site administrator may have elected to make other parameters permanent too, such as the blog name.
    Blog Name This will appear as a banner in the blog for this project. You can enter any name.
    Blog Description This will appear under the Blog Name in the blog for this project. You can enter any description.
    Rich Text Editor Enabled Select this if your users want word-processor-like writing support when they create blog posts.
    Number of Entries in Blog Home You can choose to have 3, 5, 7 or 9 entries in the blog homepage.
    If a Pebble Blog button appears along with the prefix as a tooltip when you mouse over the button, your job is done.
