Localization Documentation Updated

I've just updated the documentation about localizing mojoPortal
I'm renewing my push to improve documentation as I believe this is critical to improving the popularity of mojoPortal, which in turn is crucial for my business plan and trying to make a living working on mojoPortal.

Right now my top priorities are documentation and preparing for a new release with the recently completed extensible User Profile system.

The e-Commerce Solution project is temporarily on hold for now because the deadline has been pushed out by the one sponsor I have for this project and because the project is currently under funded and therefore not as high on my priority list.
Currently I have one sponsor pledging $1000 for this feature. I would really like to find some additional sponsors to make it worthwhile for me to work on the e-commerce feature so if you are interested in this feature and have any funds in your budget, please consider sponsoring this project. Please contact me if you are interested.

Essex Biodiversity Project a new mojoPortal Site

A new site for The Essex Biodiversity Project is now online and using mojoPortal.

Harvey Watts did a great job with the site. Its very nice to see mojoPortal used for important work like environmental protection and preservation.

Update 11/2/2006 7:23 PM EDT

A quote from Harvey Watts of Hickory Hollow the company that implemented the Essex Biodiversity Project site:

"Several of us worked on it from Hickory Hollow
( - this needs to be a mojoportal!) and
the site owners Gen and Mark who run the Essex Biodiversity Project.
That is the neat thing about mojoportal it allows end users to populate
the content of the site without too much assistance from techies."

This illustrates some of the benefits of a content management system like mojoPortal, you don't need to ask a developer when you need new pages on your site. Once the developer sets it up for you content authors can do the rest right from the browser.

Novell Forge issues

I noticed this morning that the Subversion (aka svn) repository is down and just now noticed that the downloads at Novell Forge are also down.

This is preventing any downloads or svn checkouts at the moment, sorry for any inconvenience. I'm not sure how long it will be down but I do know they are aware of it and working on the problem.

I'll post again once I know its back up and running.


Update 10/28/2006 9:07 PM The file downloads on Novell Forge are working again but svn is still down

Update 11/2/2006 svn is now working but only for those with commit access using ssh, hopefully anonymous https access will be working again sometime today.  Here are the ssh instructions but this only works for those with commit access:
Generate a key pair for your Novell Forge login as indicated in the instructions here

then upload your public key

then configure your plink path in tortoise using the -i pathtoyourkey and it should work.
From the File Menu in Windows Explorer I went to TortoiseSVN > Settings, click on Network node

In the SSH Client setting I had
C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\TortoisePlink.exe
but after changing it to
C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\TortoisePlink.exe -i C:\pathtomyprivatekey.ppk
