2015-10-05 10:58:30 -0500 marked best answer Translation clarifications

I need clarification about the following sentences:

Automatically accept user's contributions for the email updates

Does this mean, "if this user makes a contribution - any contribution - notify me about it"? Or something else?

how to login with password through external login website or use %(feedback_url)s

This is from this file and I don't understand what to put in there. Could somebody make an english-language example sentence?

Thanks!

It seems that HTML tags in titles are swallowed instead of escaped to HTML entities.

Clarification: I do not mean allowing HTML in TITLE tags, but converting < and > into their respective HTML entities &lt; and gt;. At the moment, if you type in Hello <World>, the <World> part will be completely swallowed and the result will be Hello. The end result, in my opinion, should be Hello &lt;World&gt; I do not think any real HTML should be allowed in titles.

2015-10-05 10:58:30 -0500 marked best answer Rules on what should be in the Wiki and what should be here?

Can we establish a set of rules what part of the Askbot content may stay here, and what should - long-term or short-term - go into the Wiki as reference?

Specifically:

  • Should the installation instructions that currently reside inside the installation package be migrated to the Wiki? Or should it stay where it is to avoid doubling the maintenance effort? It would be nice to have in the Wiki IMO.

  • Should language translation discussion like this one be moved to the Wiki when translation is finished to avoid the clogging of search results? (Seeing as those discussions contain a lot of important keywords)

2015-10-05 10:58:30 -0500 marked best answer How are settings and rules edited?

Is there a central location for the portal's "business logic"? Rules like, upvotes gain x points, downvotes take away y points, etc. etc.

Is this embedded into the code, or are there configuration files to control at least certain aspects of the system?

2015-10-05 10:58:30 -0500 marked best answer How easy does Askbot make it to customize its HTML?

Does Askbot have a half-way clean basis to customize the site's appearance? What I'm seeing from outside looks good, all the elements have distinct classes and IDs, which makes most things possible already.

Is the HTML code separated from the application's code base? Is it easy to switch templates? Could somebody familiar with the project maybe point me to an example of where the HTML is stored in the github repo?

Thanks in advance.

2012-04-03 23:14:15 -0500 marked best answer Why are there french fries on www.askbot.org?

I just entered www.askbot.org (notice the www) and ended up on a deserted Wiki sporting some fast food. :) Is this on purpose?

2012-03-23 11:27:39 -0500 marked best answer Where are the badges in a fresh install? [fixed]

In my freshly set-up Askbot install, the "badges" page is empty.

How do I set up badges?
