Setting up Askbot for use on the closed network (Intranet)ΒΆ

When using Askbot on the Intranet (for example - within your Company network), it will be useful to disable references to all external resources - such as custom fonts, gravatars.

Please change the following settings in your settings.py file:

ASKBOT_USE_LOCAL_FONTS=True

In addition, in the “live settings”: * disable gravatar in “settings->User settings”

If you would like to password/protect your site (achievable via “access control settings” -> “allow only registered users...”), and at the same time be able to have some dedicated service to read your site without authentication, add IP addresses of that service to a tuple ASKBOT_INTERNAL_IPS in your settings.py file.
