Message of the day:
For the silverstripe community forum project https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/silverstripe-dev/HTeGs04r5Ag http://forum-preview.silverstripe.org/
the man has a plan!
Can you please create a collaborative doc noting down what you’ve done on the instance? Maybe as a new “Post” here on the channel for now?
Not sure if you can edit those at the same time. Otherwise maybe a Google Doc? Or is there any need to create a Github repo, e.g. for versioned config files? Don’t want to overcomplicate it, but I think we need a common scratchpad
So far I’ve set up mailgun, and run through the configuration task on the server. It failed (not sure why) so I manually edited the app.yml file with the correct SMPT details. I’ve also edited app.yml to add some basic plugins:
git clone https://github.com/discourse/discourse-tagging.git Adds tagging options to posts as a way of relating them across categories
git clone https://github.com/vinkas0/discourse-facebook-onebox.git Expands facebook links into previews. This is just a work around for the main onebox functionality that works well with more traditional websites.
git clone https://github.com/angusmcleod/discourse-quick-messages Allows users to message each other in a more “chat” centric way
git clone https://github.com/davidtaylorhq/discourse-whos-online.git Shows user images of the people currently online
git clone https://github.com/discourse/discourse-voting.git When enabled this allows specific categories to have topics that can be voted on
git clone https://github.com/discourse/discourse-solved.git Solved topic plugin
Rebuilt the app (
./launcher rebuild app) it get the app.yml changes
I went through the setup wizard… not sure when that was added, but I suppose its a good idea. I’m currently looking at configuring the settings in admin
app.yml is the main configuration file for discourse. It might be worth versioning it, but I’m not entirely sure how that would work
If we have a backup of the app.yml, that is probably enough for now. If we start getting more advanced in our setup it may be worth version controlling it.
most of the settings are actually managed via the admin interface
we can do full forum backups (it also makes them automatically when upgrades are done)
the backups are also the easiest way to get a local version set up
