    • 10 Comments
    When you come to developing on top of Community Server, you’ve first got to decide whether or not you should use the SDK (which you probably shouldn’t). You’ve then got to set up your initial project so you can best take advantage of...

    CSModules

    • 0 Comments
    CSModules allow you to plug into Community Server and run your own code when certain events happen. In fact CSModules are so good that a lot of Community Server functionality is implemented through CSModules (77 are used out of the box!). This means...

    The Question and Answer functionality in Community Server (introduced in Community Server 2008.5) is very useful in support scenarios where users come to your community posting questions because it provides a means of tracking whether questions have been...

    Community Server Articles

    • 2 Comments
    Articles are a little known feature of Community Server which adds some very simple content management facilities to your site. When I say basic, I do mean basic. These articles don’t appear in search, nor are they automatically linked to by any...

    Customising Content Boxes

    Common content boxes are used throughout the Hawaii theme. They are most visible in the Sidebars of Hawaii pages but they are also used in defining the main content of the page. There are four areas available in a Common Content Box, which may not...

    I’ve decided I’m a little bored of the previous theme my site was using and so I’ve updated to a new theme.  I’m using a slight modification of the PointSpace – Blue theme converted to Graffiti by Rich Mercer (available at http://richmercer.com/graffiti...

    • 0 Comments
    It's been a little quiet here recently so let's put that right. Did you know that you could resize the content editor used when posting to Community Server? To do so, just click the arrow like icon in the bottom right of the editor and drag...

    Today I'm finally releasing the CS2008.5 version of my addon package. Not all the addons from my previous package have survived but that's no loss as they're now baked into the core of CS2008.5. Included in this release are the folowing...

    Don’t you just love it when you get a conversation or email from a member of your community saying “I can’t access the website”. You ask them a few questions, and you’re convinced it’s a problem just affecting their...

    Classic Forum Home Page

    • 14 Comments
    Whilst I do prefer the Hawaii forum view to the more typical forum views from past versions of CS, it does take a bit of getting used to, and I don’t dare to impost it on the users on my personal CS site (Nintendo Wiikly) for fear of a revolt –...

    Modifying the User List page

    • 2 Comments
    Another gripe I have with CS2008 is the new user list page. The page is very unbalanced - there is a huge waste of space at the top of the page, next to the search form, and then the user list (the useful element of the page) is crammed into that small...

    Separating the Home and Dashboard page

    • 16 Comments
    The CS2008 logged in home page. A wonderful page, just not in the right place. I don't like the idea of having the homepage significantly different for logged in and anonymous users - I can see the calls from users asking where's the homepage...
