Spam tickets

As you may have noticed, some spam tickets are getting posted again. It's mindboggling how some spam posts slip through the about 14 anti-spam services. On the other side, without the anti-spam measures, we would be facing about 5 to 10 spam tickets every day.

The reason why the recent spam posts went through the anti-spam measures is because they were either posted by an authorised user or the CAPTCHA was solved: We've 4 captcha providers configured, a captcha must be solved if your post is considered spam.

If you see a spam ticket, please do the following:

  • Delete the ticket (solving the ticket as invalid will just make things a mess)
  • Check the spam monitor page if the ticket was marked as spam and 'delete it as spam' if not.
  • Delete the user if an authorised user posted the spam (can be done after clicking the specific spam post on the monitor page).

Unfortunately, I think this subject will never be over as long as we allow anonymous users to post tickets. Something for the current leader to think over.

TWCore.org is now on Trac 1.0 "Cell"

As you can see, I've upgraded the Trac environment to Trac 1.0.1 (1.1 is still in development).

Highlights

The following are the highlights for this Trac version:

  • Graph log support in the revision log
  • Added support for Git
  • Refreshed default theme for the user interface
  • Added TracBatchModify functionality
  • Added workflow graph visualization macro
  • Improved date / time handling

More information on http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/TracDev/ReleaseNotes/1.0

I've removed the (ugly) Trac footer stating the version Trac is running on. The downside (or upside, it's just how you look at it) is that nobody can confirm the version which Trac is running.

For those who really wanted to see what the footer looked like on version 1.0, this is what the footer looked like:

Let me know if you've questions, comments, suggestions or something is broken and needs to be fixed.

Good luck and have fun! :-)

TWCore.org is now on Trac 0.12

Wooptiedoo! I've upgraded Trac 0.11.4 to 0.12.

Want to know what has changed? Check out the Release Notes of 0.12.

Highlights

  • Translation of Trac in your language, using Babel.
  • Multiple Repository Support per environment
  • Improved Wiki, more powerful syntax and nicer user interface with automatic preview in side-by-side editing mode
  • Improved Ticket user interface, with editable comments and automatic preview

Unfortunately there are a couple of things not working as they should:

  • Trac update after Subversion commit.
    All fixed and working like it should.
  • There are some version conflict errors in the Trac log file caused by some modules.
    These were old errors that were caused when obsolete modules were still loaded.
  • Somehow the en_US.js translation is missing which is giving lots of errors in the logs.
    Copied the en_US.js file from trac.edgewall.org as I wasn't able to regenerate it from the installation files.

I will update this post with further information. Let me know if you see anything not working as it should.

TWCore.org has moved to a new hosting environment!

Due to outgrowing the hosting at DreamHost, I've decided to move all the websites to a VPS. This will make the websites a lot faster and gives me more space to grow.

Subsequently TWCore.org has moved to the new hosting environment. It's now hosted at the VPS which I've named SubHost.org (85.214.192.59).

Let me know if you have questions or if there are things not working.
