This section highlights the add-on services offered by Sticky Notes and the configuration involved in enabling those features.
Project Honeypot is an initiative to identify spammers and harvesters and stop them
from invading your site. Sticky Notes integrates with Project Honeypot out-of-the-box
and all you need to do is to get an API key here. Once you have your API key, go to
Admin → Spam
filters in your site, fill in the API key and enable the plugin.
Sticky Notes utilizes the goo.gl URL shortener
API. This adds a "Get short URL" button to the paste pages. To enable this service,
get your Google API Key from the Google
Developers Console and set it in
Admin → Services.
Google Analytics helps track visitors to
your site. Sticky Notes comes with out of the box support for Analytics. You can get your
Google Analytics tracking ID from the Google Analytics website and set it in
→ Services to enable visitor tracking.
Sticky Notes supports oAuth 2.0 authentication with your Google Identity. For setting up
oAuth 2.0 with Google, you'll need to generate a client ID and client secret at the
Google Developers Console and set it up
Admin → Authentication → oAuth. Please refer to the
APIs Console Help page for instructions
on how to obtain your client ID and secret.
http://yoursite.com/user/login as the Redirect URI while
generating the client credentials.
Akismet is a powerful spam protection service that filters out comment and track-back
spam. Sticky Notes has been designed to seamlessly integrate with Akismet involving a
quick and easy setup. First, you need to obtain your Akismet API key from their
signup page. Once you have your key,
enter it in the
Admin → Spam filters → Akismet section and
enable Akismet by checking the
Enable this filter box.
If you are setting up a pastebin for your organization and want different projects to have their own dedicated paste area, all you need is a tiny bit of configuration and you're done! To use this service, you need to set up a wildcard DNS record in your zones file to point to the same nameserver. See this Wikipedia article for details.
Once set up, visiting
http://someproject.yoursite.com will provide that
project a dedicated namespace with archives and other lists showing entries made for
that project only. However, visiting
http://yoursite.com will display
data from all projects including the ones directly made to the root site itself.
Sticky Notes allows you to view and modify configuration data directly from your terminal.
To view command usage, please type
php artisan snconfig:[get|set] --help in
Sticky Notes comes with a whole big list of features that "just work" and
don't require any configuration - however, most services provide you full control
so that you can choose not to use them. For example, you can choose to disable one
or more antispam filters from the admin panel of your site. You can choose to disable
visual verification for users registering on your site by disabling the captcha
module from the
Admin → Authentication → Database screen, and
even completely stop users from registering if you want to create users manually from
Manage users screen of the admin panel.
