>Access the URL /dev/build on your website
It does not provide the command to rebuild the database and I don't see one that works in the docs
Now that we have this new page type, it is necessary to rebuild the database so that the CMS is aware of its existence. Access the URL /dev/build on your website. When the script is complete, you should see some blue text indicating that the field SiteTree.ClassName was updated to include SilverStripe\Lessons\HomePage.
Hi, for lesson-04.md, it says,
yeah, thats how I was doing it
it does that even if you right-click it and select “open with…“?
yeah I have. all it does is create a new message with the .msg file as an attachment. which seems spectacularly dumb since the files were saved from outlook in the first place!!
Are you on Windows?
no mac. but I have outlook etc installed via office 365 only last week so its definitely up to date
.msg files will only open in Outlook for Windows
Outlook for Mac is actually a completely separate product, previously called Entourage. It doesn't use .msg files
If you have Office365 though, you can open them using the web email client
??? so dumb!!! why can’t they make their own products compatible with each other???? obvs I know you can’t answer that, its rhetorical frustration!!! (so many frustrations with office, wish we could have google for education instead)
ok , ill try the online outlook thanks
its actually a fun story haha
there used to be a "Mac Business Unit" at MS, responsible for making mac versions of all of the software
not much fun from where I am….
because macs were so despised under Ballmer, he put them in a remote campus, and treated them like outsiders
so other units, e.g. the Office unit, wouldn't actually help them to build a compatible product
so they had to make their own from scratch
still at work at 9pm trying to sort out urgent issues with insufficient tools for the job. all because the stupid university is too old fashioned to move on to decent cloud computing
hence massive compatibility issues between the mac and windows versions of Office
I dont get this warring. surely all companies ultimately profit by providing to wide range of customers, not forcing them to stick with only their products for ever more and eventually sending them off to the competition
when Satya Nadella took over he quickly shut down that stupid system and put a few mac people into each unit
so gradually things are getting better, the Office unit actually makes both Office for Windows and Office for Mac now (crazy!!)
but there's still a lot of legacy differences
I still want to bang their heads together & sit them on the naughty step - people (companies) who behave like petulant toddlers deserve to be treated like them…
back to the technical side - do you know how to open a file in outlook web app? I have logged in but can’t find any file opening menu & drag/drop doesn’t work….
need to have it as an attachment
email it to yourself, then you should be able to double-click it in the email
awesome thanks ill do that
Ballmer was a charismatic leader of Microsoft, but made quite a few mistakes. Not jumping on the smartphone bandwagon, his hatred for Apple and his hatred for Open Source did Microsoft a lot of damage which Nadella is repairing step by step
@Hels have you tried using Outlook?
sadly thunderbird refuses to open the files too 😢
thanks @lerni I’m downloading it now….
