This site was originally hosted on a DotNetNuke platform. It has now moved to Drupal.
Why? We kept running into issues on DotNetNuke.
- We never managed to get full control over our URL names and meta data, especially in the blog.
- We kept updating, hoping such functionality will show up. The upgrades did more damage than fix anything. URLs kept changing, which was not good for our visibility and not good for our users.
- URLs that should have been working were occasionally returning errors.
- Comments and notifications sometimes work, sometimes not.
Drupal seems simpler and faster.
What does this mean?
- Most of the content remains the same. In the future, we should have an easier job of adding and organizing content.
- We took some steps to simplify: limited use of taxonomy, removal of some pages with general and generic content.
- The site should now be faster.
- URLs work (well, there might be some mistakes in conversion from the original site to here, but we will handle these over time).
- Comments work. It will be easier for users to participate.
Some old content is gone:
- There were a few forum posts related to the administration of DotNetNuke. These are not useful here.
- Some users will lose access – not a big deal, as registration is free and requires little information. Users can themselves get access again if interested.
You will see a lot of "First posted on [some date]" and similar sentences. That is simply to note the date the content was originally posted, before being moved here.
