Parallel ActiveWidgets site
I have created a web site that I hope will provide a different type of support for the ActiveWidget community. It is a place where you might be able to closer to other AW developers and share your code secrets and post components that you have created. It has a threaded forums area with threads being grouped by type. That is that they are grouped by the AW Control they relate to. If you want to get information on the Input control there is an area just for it. There are many area awaiting new posts. The site requires registration with a valid email address, this will not change. The site will not allow posting without being registered. Actually, you can't even get into the Forums area without registering.
If there are any of you out there that would like to volunteer to help Moderate the Forums, please let me know once you sign up for the site. You will be able to send me a Private Message from any of my posts in the Forums area.
Suggestions have been made to have a generic and static set of tables to use for examples. Once the tables and backend hooks are in place we'll post that information.
I hope that between the two sites, the AW Community will grow and get stronger. Alex is doing a great job on the toolkit, time for us to create other things to go with it and make it better. The more we do as a community, the more valuable to toolkit will become.
You can access the site at www.FriendsOfAW.com
many thanks for the new site - I just registered and I like how the site looks and I have very warm feeling from the domain name! I'll do as much as I can and hope other toolkit users will help you making the site very useful for all of us.
Jim: your site is great. Thanks for all the effort. I hope people start using it.
Alex: Perhaps you could shut down this forum and link the message board directly to Jim's forum? Perhaps Jim will make you a moderator.. =)
I am not sure if shutting it down is a fantastic idea. I am sure Alex is not willing to do that since there is a lot of good solutions in here. But a link to it would help drive people there so we can get the ball moving.
You're right of course. Maybe keep the current forum around for achive purposes, but disallow new topics? If it's possible to import posts into phpBB, perhaps Alex could provide some kind of dump file of all posts in the forum and Jim could place them in a special Archive forum. This would allow all these historical posts to be search via Jim's forum.
Just suggestions. I'm eager to make as much use as possible of this new resource. =)
Table dump of the posts may be an option, depending on how Alex has implemented this. Importing into phpBB may be a tricky I am not sure. I have not really looked at the DB usage in phpBB. Could be more straight forward than I am expecting. They may just have to be edited to say be posted all by Jim or some user. Could create a user named "oldforum" or something and use that as the poster.
What about only importing the 2.0 specific posts to the new forum?
An import would mean importing everything, since FOAW has many forums for 2.0 I am sure it would be focused on 2.0, and not missed.
you are a good guy... oh yeah, you are a good guy, Many things that were missing here were accomplished today, and I will say that you have contributed to the glory of aw !
Search features, and compartimented forum... héhé great!
Alex, I don't forget you, thanks for v4, working on the grid is now much more user friendly!!!
Today and yesterday were good hope, and I know that this product and it's small and growing community will be doing something great over the near future!
Thanks everyone for the kind words. I have added a Demo page where I can post user demos of things that they have created. So if you have a nice control you have created or a new enhancement to the grid, let me know. I will post a demo of your code and give you the appropriate credit. And if you want, we can also allow for easy viewing of the code befind the demo.
Currently I have the standard demos that Alex provides on this page but soon will have more to show you.
