Would it be possible for Sproggy to upload it to his web space?
=> because you like that e107 so much Archie....
(but that's an offering only Sproggy can give, I don't have any usable web space at the moment)
I suppose Kori can do that but my plan was to test then choose then Kori can do his stuff. I know he's very busy at the moment and I cannot trouble him for this mundane testing.
Joomla is up and I've scaled it like a fish and did a bit of tweaking and configuring but it is far from what it could be and what it could do. The test site is http://pclosart.packagecloud.com/test2
It looks like Gallery3 won't happen. Collaboration will be a little hard to follow on that web app. Gonna look for another. By the way, I tried TikiWiki again and I think it will be hard for the members to use the wiki markups instead of dialog boxes with icons. Just my opinion.
In place of Gallery3, I installed Coppermine on Test 3
just to see how a gallery would compare with CMS.
Please note that the three sites are ONLY TEST SITES
. It will need testers who would post their feedbacks on this thread. Also note that the webspace used by the 3 test sties is only limited to 100MiB. What are we testing? How easy is it to use the web app by posting an imaginary project/cooperating with an imaginary artist/uploading and downloading art/commenting/viewing/etc.
Which member registration should we apply? Email verification or by admin approval? There should also be a procedure (or rule) in place to hold the project together. There are several things we still need to straighten out before we can call ourselves a group.
Good people, test the sites and give us your feedbacks.
A quick summary: All three sites need registration (which will all be deleted after the test runs). Test 1 site is manual registration and default member level should be enough to get most task done. Test 2 site registration via email verification and should be OK for the members to get most task done. Test 3 site is a gallery and requires registration via email verification to get "full member privileges" (guest can only view thumbnails and cannot view the larger images).
