ANN: BlogDev SourceForge

This post is more than 2 years old.

As frequent visitors of this blog know, I've been developing, and sharing, this blog for a while now. At the suggestion of a wise friend, I have decided to move the development of this project to SourceForge. There will be two resources I'm primarily interested in using:

a) The CVS support. You will be able to sync up new releases using CVS.

b) A listserv. More on that later.

The reason for this move is so that I don't bore people here with minor blog updates. I also have a lot of big plans for the 3.0 release, and frankly, I want my users' opinions.

So, with that in mind, if you like using this blog (and I'm speaking specifically to those of you who use the software, I don't mean those who just read the blog), please help make the 3.0 release the best yet. Please sign up for the listserv. I will be posting a proposed featurelist/changelist sometime this weekend.

The List Server bounces back undeliverable when trying to confirm subscription.

I'm not sure what to say, as others have signed up. However, I do know one other person had the same issue you had. Could it be some kind of local proxy/spam filter issue?

Ray:

The same thing happened to me last Friday. I never heard back from you RE: my blog installation failure. I don't think I was correct in describing my problem as an infinite loop. The page never comes up when you try to log in. No matter, I am changing hosts! I imagine that I will have it fixed soon - just haven't had time to work on it.

Raymond,

I just downloaded the Blog.zip, set up a database in SQL called cfblog, created a dsn called cfblog and pointed to that SQL database I just created. I ran the blog.sql, and filled out the blog.ini details with my info.

I get this when I run http://localhost/cfblog

Error Executing Database Query.
[MERANT][SequeLink JDBC Driver][ODBC Socket][Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]Optional feature not implemented

What step did I leave out, or do wrong?

Dale:

I got the same error, exactly, when I tried to install the blog on my desktop. It doesn't seem to like datepart or any of the date functions. It seems like datepart is not a function installed automatically. Sorry if I am being "Captain Obvious". :-)

I haven't found the answer yet. I'm sigining up for the blogcfc maillist to see if I can find out there, as well as keep up to date with the blog app.

My confirmation mail to the listserve bounced as well. Seems to be overloaded...

Could not deliver message to the following recipient(s):

Failed Recipient: blogcfc-develop-request@lists.sourceforge.net

The listserv seems to suck pretty bad. I may just dump the entire sourceforge idea and just use another blog here.
