For those of you that use Windows Live Writer to publish posts you will need to reconfigure the blog settings to support Subtext. This is a one-time change and simply involves running the "Edit Weblog Settings" wizard. This wizard will pick up all of the existing settings, so you don't actually need to change anything. One benefit that Subtext provides is that we can now publish images in the post directly...no need to upload them first. If you aren't already running Windows Live Writer, I encourage ...
Its 1:11am and John, Jeff and I are finally done with update. We are definitely still working some kinks out but considering the amount of content we moved, and that we moved it from one application to another is quite amazing. Jeff was saying that GWB 1.0 had been up for three years and that this is the first time it has received this much love. I am personally really happy that John and Jeff chose to go with an open source project and hope that it continues to be a rewarding experience. I know ...
Take a good last look at Geekswithblogs.net on .Text because tomorrow night, we are doing a major upgrade to SubText 1.9.4. This upgrade will most likely take 4 to 5 hours to ensure the software is converted and stable. I really want to thank Dru and the SubText team for all their work with us during this process. After quite a bit of testing, we have very high confidence in this product and the migration should be seamless. ** IMPORTANT ** If you find any issues with the site after the upgrade, ...
Jeff just recently posted that the conversion of Geekswithblogs.net from .Text to Subtext is back underway. I am really looking forward to seeing the conversion complete. Subtext has a lot of great features and has a very active development community. I'm sure GWB will be converting to Subtext 1.9 for now, and hopefully will upgrade to 2.0 when it comes out. As part of the conversion, Jeff is looking to not only change the look and feel for the homepage, but also update it to be more Web 2.0-ish ...
Dru Sellers, one of our faithful bloggers, is working for AJI Software on the conversion to SubText again. We had to pull him away for a few months as he was working on a client project, but he is now dedicated to adding the features we need to SubText for a smooth migration with current functionality. Everyone wish Dru luck during the long days and nights he is pulling to get this site updated as soon as we can. One of the items I would like to change near the launch of the site is a new look and ...
As you know, I'm working with the Subtext project. Subtext uses CruiseControl.NET (CC.NET) as it's continuous integration (CI) build system. One of the nice features of CC.NET is the web dashboard that provides the visibility in to the builds. Over the last month, I have been upgrading the Subtext dashboard with a new look and feel as well as some additional features. As a result, the dashboard caught the attention of Jay Flowers, who owns the CI Factory project. For those of you who don't know about ...
The Subtext CruiseControl.NET dashboard has undergone a major facelift this weekend. It now has a new CNAME record, which allows access to it from: http://build.subtextproject... This change is the beginning of an effort to enhance the documentation for the project and make it easier for users to find everything. To go along with the new address, the dashboard itself received a huge overhaul as well. It now sports a nice, clean feel that matches the main Subtext project site. There are still ...
All I can say is, "Wow!" I just looked at my blog and realized that I posted 34 posts for last month. I'm sure some of you may not think this is a large amount, but for me it represented the single busiest month of blogging since I started almost a year ago. I don't know how busy I'll be blogging this month, but I know I will be busy. Here is my current list of projects (outside of real work, that is): Update my File Downloader component with asynchronous download support. Update my Framework Version ...
The long awaited 1.9.4 release is finally here. This release fixes a number of bugs and implements a few new features. One of the more significant features is the Sitemap implementation. You can find more information on the implementation and instructions on how to set it up on David's blog. There is also a new set of XFN icons to go along with Subtext's XFN Highlighter. I think the new icons and highlighter will work very well with my new XFN Link Editor for Windows Live Writer (once it finally ...
without the spammers coming out of the woodwork...  Do you think they monitor my house?  Who knows.  Sorry for all the spam this weekend.  I have removed the posts and placed some more filter help to stop them.  I will be monitoring the site closer now that I have a connection again.  SubText will definitely help us against this when we launch.
Well after 3 years of .Text it is time to move on. For the next version of Geekswithblogs.net we will be implementing a spinoff of .Text named SubText. Our team is currently working on a smooth import process as well as adding the features of .Text that we added to make SubText a very smooth transition. This move will change some of the blog skins by adding new ones and we hope to support some of the older ones as well. This move is still under development, but we see it completing within the next ...
I am so stoked I looked at Phil Haack's Blog today. I noticed an article about SubText using Cruise Control for their open source development process. I had never heard of CruiseControl and didnt realize it was open source. I quickly hopped to sourceforge and downloaded the latest source. I noticed from the documentation that CCNet was 2.0 compatable. Within minutes I was fighting with VS 2005 to make it work on 2.0. I had to first edit the csproj file to force a WAP type conversion and everything ...
