sfMaraePlugin has several external dependencies:

  * sfDoctrineGuardPlugin
  * sfDoctrineNestedSetPlugin
  * HTMLPurifier
  * sfXssSafePlugin
  * jQuery and jQuery UI

Installing dependencies

Please read the sfDoctrineGuardPlugin documentation for information on installing it.

sfDoctrineNestedSetPlugin can be installed with the following command:

    symfony plugin:install sfDoctrineNestedSetPlugin

[HTMLPurifier](http://htmlpurifier.org/) is a large PHP library which filters HTML. Comprehensive installation information is available 
on their website, but it can be installed as a PEAR package:

    pear channel-discover htmlpurifier.org
    pear install hp/HTMLPurifier

sfXssSafePlugin is a symfony wrapper for HTMLPurifier. I had some problems with the package listed on  [symfony-project.org](http://www.symfony-project.org/plugins/sfXssSafePlugin) but 
have published a version which works (for me) on [GitHub](https://github.com/chrisjenkinson/sfXssSafePlugin). If you have problems with the original package, please try my 
version and post bugs/issues on GitHub.

Add the following to `apps/frontend/app.yml`:

          AutoParagraph:     true
          Linkify:           true
          Allowed:          "b,i,strong,ul,ol,li,p,a[href],blockquote"
          DefinitionID:      "sfMaraePlugin"
          DefinitionRev:     1

For information about enabling additional HTML tags, read the HTMLPurifier documentation.

jQuery and jQuery UI installation information is available on the [jQuery website](http://www.jquery.com); alternatively use the [Google-hosted version](http://code.google.com/apis/libraries/).

Administering sfMaraePlugin

sfMaraePlugin uses the permissions management in sfDoctrineGuardPlugin. Permissions are checked on a category-by-category basis and sub categories do not inherit the permissions
of their parents. Users must be logged in to start threads or reply to existing threads. The following permissions exist:

  * show - the user can see the category page and posts in the category
  * new - the user can start new threads
  * reply - the user can reply to existing threads
  * edit - the user can edit their posts
  * delete - the user can delete their posts (if they have no replies)

If you need more fine-grained permissions, please open an issue on GitHub.

All permissions are enabled by default. sfMaraePlugin checks for a permission with the following name for each action:


If the permission exists, sfMaraePlugin will require the user to have the permission before continuing. The documentation for sfDoctrineGuardPlugin explains permission groups in more detail.
