Forum software updated to support code tags (again).

Good evening fellow forum members.

Since we updated the Forum software to Drupal Version 7 the code filters had not been working.

This made it very difficult to post XML, HTML examples to forum posts.

The filter needed to be moved to the bottom of the list, now text formats BBCode and Filtered HTML both render code properly.

To use simply encapsulate your text in the [code][code]tags[/code][/code]

Here is an example of a PS without the code tags:

[root@xxx admin]# ps au
USER PID %CPU %MEM VSZ RSS TTY STAT START TIME COMMAND
root 2809 0.0 0.0 1748 448 tty1 Ss+ Mar27 0:00 /sbin/mingetty tty1
root 2810 0.0 0.0 1748 440 tty2 Ss+ Mar27 0:00 /sbin/mingetty tty2
root 2811 0.0 0.0 1748 448 tty3 Ss+ Mar27 0:00 /sbin/mingetty tty3
root 2812 0.0 0.0 1748 448 tty4 Ss+ Mar27 0:00 /sbin/mingetty tty4
root 2817 0.0 0.0 1748 444 tty5 Ss+ Mar27 0:00 /sbin/mingetty tty5
root 2818 0.0 0.0 1748 440 tty6 Ss+ Mar27 0:00 /sbin/mingetty tty6
root 7344 0.0 0.2 4636 1412 pts/0 Ss+ 19:49 0:00 -bash
root 12703 0.0 0.2 4636 1416 pts/1 Ss 20:59 0:00 -bash
root 13502 0.0 0.1 4352 940 pts/1 R+ 21:08 0:00 ps au
[root@xxxx admin]#

Now with the code tags:

[code] [root@xxxx admin]# ps au
USER PID %CPU %MEM VSZ RSS TTY STAT START TIME COMMAND
root 2809 0.0 0.0 1748 448 tty1 Ss+ Mar27 0:00 /sbin/mingetty tty1
root 2810 0.0 0.0 1748 440 tty2 Ss+ Mar27 0:00 /sbin/mingetty tty2
root 2811 0.0 0.0 1748 448 tty3 Ss+ Mar27 0:00 /sbin/mingetty tty3
root 2812 0.0 0.0 1748 448 tty4 Ss+ Mar27 0:00 /sbin/mingetty tty4
root 2817 0.0 0.0 1748 444 tty5 Ss+ Mar27 0:00 /sbin/mingetty tty5
root 2818 0.0 0.0 1748 440 tty6 Ss+ Mar27 0:00 /sbin/mingetty tty6
root 7344 0.0 0.2 4636 1412 pts/0 Ss+ 19:49 0:00 -bash
root 12703 0.0 0.2 4636 1416 pts/1 Ss 20:59 0:00 -bash
root 13502 0.0 0.1 4352 940 pts/1 R+ 21:08 0:00 ps au
[root@xxxx admin]#
[/code]

As you can see it makes the text much more readable.

Enjoy…

Off to Astricon 2012

Yet another year has flown by and the annual event of all things Asterisk is upon us.

Once again I have the distinct pleasure of joining the FreePBX team to have the opportunity to share about our great project.

It’s been a busy year, 2.11 development in full force and four versions of the Distro project.

One of the new items is Tony Lewis’s “Wall of phones”. In the FreePBX booth will be working examples of every commercially available (and some discontinued) endpoints form Aastra, Cisco, Panasonic, Yealink, SNOM, Mitel and a host of others. All of these phones are powered up and talking to a live FreePBX system. This is a great opportunity to see all of these endpoints in one place.

We also have the largest team assembled. Venerable leader and software engineer Philippe Lindheimer will be heading up the group along with Tony Lewis, President of Schmooze communication, Bryan Walters (gamergamer) Developer Schmnooze Communications, Andrew Nage developer of the FreePBX endpoint manager module and provisioner.net fame and lastly myself Scott Holtzman (SkykingOH) CTO of Micro Advantage.

Please stop by and say hello. Be sure and attend Philippe’s “State of FreePBX” presentation.

Look to the site for updates from the show and other attendees blogs.

Update from the road. The team is tired, the jokes are stale, Tony just set the brakes on fire descending out of the Smokies with the trailer. Bryan and Luke have been digesting their meal in a most ungraceful manner and we are almost out of Red Bull and Marlboro’s. While back at Our NW development center fearless leader (Philippe) is resting comfortably and preparing for his First Class flight to Atlanta. What we won’t do for the project.

We would have taken FreePBX One to Atlanta but we could not get the booth tied to the landing gear.
