shifted stuff to wordpress

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008

Abandoning Elgg for the following reasons:

1. It’s very clunky.
2. It took me an hour to figure out how to do something that should be trivial.
3. Every time I go looking to find out why something’s broken, I find more bugs.

It still is sluggish, but see

I’ve disabled the explodeping module, we’ll see if this goes any faster now.

mod_auth_cas docs

mod_auth_cas built

This’ll need (a) configuring, and (b) integrating with Elgg. At the moment, it’s simply available to apache instances.

Righto, this thing’ll now send email

… at the moment, it’ll claim to be from me. This uses the php.ini in the mod-php/conf directory, which means that it can be done separately from the tomcat/Quercus- hosted instance.

“You’ve forgotten your password” etc. stuff looks like it works.

I’ve opened up the top-level apache instance a bit to let users on the 12 subnet see this (although I’ve not advertised it at all).

It seems to me to be very sluggish. I’ve not turned on any PHP speedups; looks like they’ll be necessary, however.

Filtering blog posts into separate feeds

Friday, December 28th, 2007

Next obvious question: if people are emitting a series of blog posts with various tags,

1. do those tags show up i a tag cloud somewhere?
2. can views be presented onto a blog stream filtering by keyword?

More elgg integration questions: the file management interface – what can we point that at?

It’d be nice to see people’s files in one place (or every place) rather than split between individual applications. Can we get a view onto blackboard, the “K: drive”, etc?

Elgg up and running, pretty much.

It seems sluggish to me. This is now running under mod_php5 for the moment – whilst I hack on the bits that Quercus doesn’t like.
