    Got that latest or greatest scoop? Perhaps you have some important news for the Debian community? Submit a news item!

    Or perhaps you’ve written a rather ground breaking insight into some aspect of Debian and you feel compelled to share it with others? Knock up a longer editorial article and send it to the editors.

    General feedback should be sent to staff@debianplanet.org

    IRC
    The place to get help on a Debian problem (after reading docs) or to just chat and chill is #debian on irc.oftc.net.

    Many of the Debian Planet staff live there so pop by and say hello.

    Debian Planet also has its own channel on the same network called #debianplanet.

    Debian Planet transition is complete
    Submitted by robster on Sunday, July 07, 2002 – 15:59
    Debian Planet has successfully moved to the Drupal code base with several hacks and kludges. The transition is not totally complete as we are taking this oppurtunity to tidy up our article collection, recategorize and edit our selection of articles. Thanks to all the staff who have helped me make this happen, especially Laurence who is working hard manually recategorising the content.

    Any problems — let us know at webmaster@debianplanet.org.

    Date: Thursday, 2002/07/11 – 12:25
    for speeding up browsing this site:

    uncomment the ini_set(“session.cache_limiter”, “”); in includes/conf.php. doing so will result in browser backs being loaded from browser cache instead of being recreated from database. makes quite a difference for long loading pages such as module.php?mod=tracker and module.php?mod=search (why is this disabled btw?)

    Date: Tuesday, 2002/07/09 – 13:38
    I see there was a breakage of DebianPlanet this morning.

    Looking at the errors that came back, there appeared to be a runaway connections problem between Drupal and MySQL which, I assume, was responsible for the failure.

    Has this been addressed or can we expect it to happen again?

    Author: stealth
    Date: Tuesday, 2002/07/09 – 03:05
    this is a small feature i’ve seen on a few systems, and i think it would be great. When you go into a thread that has new messages, there is a button that jumps right to the first new message in the thread, instead of you scrolling through 30 or 40 messages tyring to find the new one by looking for that little red dot.

    Just a thought…

    I’m kind of curious… why did DP decide to use Drupal?

    Was it the only way to make sure “insightful” kept from losing the “t” again?

    Ack! where is the moderation?

    I hadn’t noticed, it looks the pretty much the same as the old system. I can’t help thinking your time might have been better spent putting the DebianPlanet theme into Geeklog instead.

    Subject: looks same? beh!
    Author: dopey
    Date: Monday, 2002/07/08 – 18:03
    it may look the same, but that is because Robster put a lot of effort
    into transfering the theme over. The code that is behind the site is
    *extremely* different, and easier to work with. Its also alot easier
    to start adding your own site specific “modules” to the website.

    Another strong reason is that php-nuke sucks balls.

    Comment!: Once you go to read a thread that has new messages, and then you reply to one of the messages, hit post and go back to the thread, everything is marked as read.

    A better idea would be to reset the read flag once the user leaves the thread for the main page.

    Author: Moof
    Date: Monday, 2002/07/08 – 01:51
    When you’re not logged in, you can’t see either the threaded or unthreaded expanded views. They work fine if you’re logged in, though.

    That being said, it did get me to register so that I could make the comment, which is probably a good thing.

    I’m testing it using MSIE (Win) 6.0.2600 with the default theme, and Mozilla 1.0RC1 Win.

    being that most people (like me) just lurk here, or stop by quickly, not allowing anonymous to view the expanded messages i think is a bad choice.

    I assume you are already aware, but the search feature doesn’t work.
    (When I search for words that I know appeared in recent articles,
    I get no results.)

    It would also be nice if there were a search box on the main page
    (along with the Debian and Community boxes).

    I notice it doesn’t carry the title from the post you’re replying to any more, too. Not serious compared to the font size, but a bit irritating.

    The default font on the traditional theme is scaled to 80% of your default font size.
    Arguably it shouldn’t be scaled down at all, but you do need to adjust your font size 🙂

    Oh, and some people reported Konqueror shows it too small regardless of our CSS settings. No idea why, yet.

    It’s a small thing, but your RDF feed’s title now includes the News for Debian. Stuff that *really* matters slogan. It shouldn’t 🙂 (By making this remark I retain my right to bitch at anyone else following your lead ;p.)

    Ooh, and a question. Since moderation is gone, will you remove trolls, flamebait and spam yourself?

    [edit]smooth, I can edit my comment later on![/edit]

    [edit #2]
    Where’s my poll? Is that feature broken or moderated? In the latter case perhaps a message should be displayed after posting.

    Author: sazma
    Date: Monday, 2002/07/08 – 13:33
    I agree that the slogan shouldn’t be there. Also www.debianplanet.org/backend.php redirects me to a Bad URL ™ on drupal.debianplanet.org. If I click on a link in the RSS feed, I’m also taken to drupal.debianplanet.org. The login cookie for www.debianplanet.org doesn’t carry over to there and what’s the point of a service name (www) when you redirect to a machine name?

    I don’t mean to just bitch. I’m thankful for this site and I’m glad you guys are working to keep it better/cooler/up to date. Thanks for your hard work.

    Oh come on, it’s just a silly joke for this special event (i.e. first poll — for anyone else reading this.)

    Even Advogato’s first story was a test. You can’t get more sober than them even if you tried so you might as well give up now 😉

    [edit]
    Ah, ok, so the create poll link is for submitting ideas on front page polls. I can see why you don’t want any sillyness there. I’ve spent way too much time in the K5 diary section I think.

    I’m tempted to blame my mistake on usability ;). The reality is that this will be obvious as soon as a couple of polls have been posted.
