This site has been updated to CS 2007 sp3. In doing so I broke the old way I was charming CS into single blog mode. Single Blog Mode is when you have a blog on a CS site and you want it to take over the root. ie http://BillRob.com takes you to the default landing page for my blog.
This is a excellent resource for setting up a CS 2007 site in single blog mode from ScottW. Enjoy.
Here is the full forums post if you want to dig into it further.
A Single Blog, the Easy Way
Also, thanks to recent Telligent hire Kar for letting me know my rss feed was broken.
I came home tonight to another automatic virus scan of my machine. Yes, it's McAfee, so there is problem one. Problem two is an issue that's being going on with me between Community Server and McAfee anti-virus software in general for nearly a year. Community Server has some great looking blog skins that can be pulled over with a default install. This works well for visually diversifying the plethora of blogs running CS.
One of those skins has the name "PoisonIvy". It's a nice looking skin, but not quite sure where the name comes from. When the skin was first released internally everyone's McAfee [default in-office install] recognized it as a virus and quarantined it. Any text file named PoisonIvy is delete by McAfee. It would be great if it were a virus, but
It is NOT a virus!
It has the same html as all the other skins. This a testament to the crack anti-virus team developing McAfee's virus engine. I sure hope no one renames the virus to anything other than PoisonIvy. They aren't even looking at the contents of the file, only the filename. I've contacted McAfee about this and what I could do to remove that "definition" from my list or exempt that directory. I'm paraphrasing their response: "No, you can't, our software sucks and you are a fool for buying it".
Now that McAfee has completely confirmed they won't do anything about it, I must shift my focus back to the Community Server team. The "Enterprise Version" provides a workaround.
CS team, pretty, pretty please with a cherry on top rename the PoisonIvy skin. It gets worse every week because I have more CS sites on my machine. I've spent the last hour and a half running SVN cleanup on directories and re pulling so I could work. I'm sure there are other people in the wild downloading CS for the first time and McAfee pukes up at them. Do those users give up and move to a competitor and tell others CS has a virus embedded in it?
I will personally hand deliver no more than 3 beers to any CS developer in Dallas that would get this changed. This offer stands for any developers when they come to the Dallas office.
I'm sure this won't be the last time I drop off blogging for a while. This hiatus is attributed to Jose. The Community Server team was packaging up CS 2007 and I wanted to play with Morpheus. Morpheus is the extension added to Community Server that enables the separation of the membership store with CS data. I was playing a scenario where I had to different CS sites and one membership store.
I had a couple problems with it, mostly my own fault. Jose helped me through and got it all up and running. He then asked me to type up a blog post on how to create two CS sites that shared membership. I started on that post and never finished it. There are too many other cool things I'm working on at Telligent and took most of my time. I had committed to myself I wouldn't do any posts until that one is done.
I'm breaking that commitment now. Sorry Jose, perhaps I'll get it typed out someday.
