GMail Invites

This post is more than 2 years old.

So I've refrained from joining the "I've got invites" crowd, but now that Google has dropped 50 invites in my account I feel guilty... like maybe I'm not doing enough to help spread the GMail gospel. Does GMail know the kind of pressure they are putting on me?!?! Anyway, post a comment here with your email addy if you want an invite.

Come on. You know you want it. Everyone else is doing Gmail. Shouldn't you?

Signed, rcamden of Gmail. Resistence is futile.

Hi a gmail invite would be great, also if you could point me in the right direction for some help using this BLOG, i have downloaded it and got it running but i dont appear to be able to add a blog without being logged in and the only way i can see to log in is by changing the url (designmode) is there a simple way to do this and also ive added users into my db but they dont appear to work whentrying to login :)

Any help would be much appreciated

Comment 23 by Raymond Camden posted on 2/5/2005 at 12:57 AM

By ad da blog do you mean add a blog or add an entry? To add a blog, you need to need to edit the ini file. This should be covered in the docs. To add an entry, yes, you must use designmode=1. I did this just because I didn't want a full featured /admin folder.

Comment 24 by Ben posted on 2/5/2005 at 6:39 PM

So basically i want to use the blog for a couple of developers to be able to post comments on a prog were writing. so do i just give them all the 1 username password or can multiple users be set up. Thanks for your time the blogs great though (sorry prob shouldnt be posting here )

Comment 25 by Raymond Camden posted on 2/7/2005 at 8:20 PM

Ben - since this is a bit off topic, please email me directly for more help if you need it. The way you use multiple users is: Add them manually to the users table. Then, in the ini file, you specify a list of users for your blog. I forget the exact key name, but it should be in the doc. This "associates" the users in the DB table to your blog. Then they can logon and post entries and they will correctly be marked (ie, posted by ben, posted by jen, etc)
