Will mojoPortal run on a Nokia 770?

Jospeh Hill recently added Sqlite support to mojoPortal mainly to make it easier to fit on the mono-live cd.

But Sqlite can also be embedded in a device and there seems to be a movement afoot to try and get mojoPortal running on the Nokia 770. The Nokia 770 is not a phone, I would be tempted to call it a PDA, but the branding used by Nokia calls it an Internet Tablet. Whatever you call it, it looks pretty cool to me!

I'll be following that story with interest!

More files need translating, help if you can

Those of you working with the mojoPortal source code from svn who have helped with translating the Culture.config files I ask your help in another area of improving the localization.

While the Culture.config file has all the labels and button text and such for the site, there are also MessageTemplae.config files in the /Data/MessageTemplates folder that contains longer text and markup used for things like forum and blog post notification, registration agreement, etc.

Previously these were named like EditAccessDeniedMessage.config but now I have implemented and committed to svn a naming scheme like
culture + "-" + EditAccessDeniedMessage.config
and I have renamed the current templates like en-US-EditAccessDeniedMessage.config where en-US corresponds to the Culture setting in the Web.config
for the Italian translation for example you would name the file it-IT-EditAccessDeniedMessage.config

If no file is found corresponding to the Culture setting, it will fall back to en-US
This is the last part of mojoPortal that I know of that was not localizable until now and the naming convention will solve that. Or I should say, previously it was localizable but you had to overwrite the english files to do it whereas the new implementation allows me to include translations.

Please send me the translated files at joe_audette at yahoo dot com and I will commit them to svn

Big Thanks in Advance!


Update: 9/26/2005 We now have the Italian Message Template files in svn thanks to Francesco Astolfo
Update: 9/28/2005 Thank You Michael Sommer for the German translation
Update: 10/24/2005 Thank You Jan Hussaarts for the Dutch Translation. I applogize for not updating this sooner
Update: 10/24/20045 Thank You Juan Manuel Galicia Castillo for the Mexican/Spanish translation

mono-live CDs with mojoPortal at the PDC

Joseph Hill, the producer of the mono-live CD just produced a fresh version of mono-live including a running copy of the latest mojoPortal on mono and has been distributing them at the PDC in LA. It will be available soon at the mono-live CD site.

Hopefully this will expose more .NET developers to both mono and mojoPortal.

Big Thanks to Joseph!

FCKeditor 2.0 Final Release

I just upgraded the source code in svn to use the new final release of FCKeditor. Those of you using the mojoPortal source code from svn can get it now. After I've had a chance to do some more testing I'll make a new release. I've upgraded this site to use it as well so I can test. So far so good.

I'm having a few issues with the new FCKeditor and trying to work through them. Its not allowing me to browse the server or upload files on mono. It works in IIS, I think there is a case sensitivty issue somewhere but haven't found it yet.

Also the css for the editor is displaying funky but appears ok when it renders outside the editor.
