Re: We need a test site

It may be just a difference in terms, but I would consider a test site different from a demo site. Test being for development and testing, demo for a public demonstration of finished products.

Re: We need a test site

A valid point. Although obviously we can show the final versions of Giba's modules there

Re: We need a test site

Personally, I don't think we should demo things that are not completed, or else create an "alphademo" site...

Our official demo site will be the place where people are more likely to test ImpressCMS for the first time. If something does not work, we loose this potential user. This is why it needs to be perfectly functional.

Re: We need a test site

I would suggest we use multimenu - or something similar - to split up the modules... perhaps also splitting up alpha and final releases?

Nekro - give me a shout later as I have some ideas on this score...

Re: We need a test site

Can be sent in a module alpha version yet?

Example:

Efq,XicPoll, etc...

The idea of the demo site... is to be in as many languages as posible... and have as many modules and themes as posible... to make the community able to test all we have...

Please... post all the known compatible modules... and all the themes... that you would like to see in the test site...

Re: We need a test site

Thanks!!!!
:bravo:
Nekro, if you have problems about location of Spanish translations of any module, just let me know or whatever help that you need.

Re: We need a test site

Demo site created: http://demo.impresscms.org. Using the latest impresscms_1.0 branch.

Nekro has all the access information and will start adding modules and themes. Any help will be more then welcome.

I will ensure the site is secure and will work with nekro and others to create the cron job that would erase the data end put the clean one in every hour.

Totally agree... how dificult it can be??? very secure by the server... not exec files... no uploads... some of the common modules... a cron deleting and restoring the database every night...
what else?

Re: We need a test site

A long while ago - Snow (with a tiny help from me) spent a lot of time on a demo site for the "other project".... this got put to one side when other issues came up... but essentially what we had in planned was similar to what you mean.

I think a test site is possible...

We need a test site

In few days our first final release will be ready. It is very important and promotion is need.
Of course, a good way is opensourcems.com, but about Xoops in that page there are some comments as:
Quote:

Couldn't find anywhere to add new pages in the demo, so I'm as confused as Brian Haines.
Can't recommend this CMS.


Quote:

How can you say that it is 'Very Easy' to use? I can't even figure out how to make a new page using the demo! I can add a Block to an existing page, but how do I add a page?


A demo is very important (in my opinion). But in opensourcecms will be our package in SF...without modules. We need show our improvements (new administration, multilenguage etc) and offer possibilities to who try test our release.
Perhaps a new test site with some modules could help to us....

Re: ImpressCMS announced in linux.softpedia

I did it the same way you did - filled in all the information on the submission form.

BTW - there is another category we belong in: Web scripts.

Re: Alternatives to XOOPS

Yes - it's certainly down in the [[Roadmap]] for 1.1 - so I hope we'll have this in this release... if not - in the following release.

Anyway - at least this has given me a reminder for the OpenID code



Yes, that would be awesome. I see in the roadmap it shows that it would have been in the current release? Apparently it's not in there but have you heard any status?

When I look at that wiki my eyes glaze over and I just move on....I don't even know what it is for anymore.



Same here. It is a huge mess. Is there a central category listing anywhere? Very difficult to find anything.

Quote:

The purpose of the mediawiki on the whoops site is to keep BS busy creating a page for everyone that links to their profile page. There isn't any actual informative content within those pages.



That drives me crazy. I looked at a few profile links but most just pointed to content on Xoops End User. I think someone likes to use it to promote their own site. And a lot of the non-profile pages are posted completely empty!
