Galleries are fixed.

Looks like it was a short code issue after an update that messed things up. Revisiting the posts and correcting the codes seems to have fixed everything. RSS feeds are still working, so I think we are all good.

September Meeting 2013

Title: September Meeting 2013 Location: Tim Horton’s, 660 Eagleson Rd, Kanata Link out: Click here Description: Welcome to September… A couple of items for the group first: LISA’13 will be in Washington D.C. from Nov 03-08, 2013 We are now a full Local for LOPSA and the only one outside the U.S. at this time. I’m thinking of re-branding the site a little to show the affiliation and to remove the old SAGE branding as that is now ancient history.

Image galleries are currently unavailable.

Well, they are disabled at the moment due to a problem with the RSS feed. After having it brought to my attention a few days ago, I finally had a chance to have a look and it seems that the combination of plugins I have all work except the nextgen gallery, so I’ll be messing around with gallery plugins for a little bit and update the posts when I get it fixed.

August Meeting Notes

We did not manage to get through all of the items I wanted to discuss, however I did manage to hit all of the bullet points that were posted for the meeting. That leaves me with a few topics for the next meeting, so all is good. Asciidoctor: A Ruby tool for Documentation I have mentioned AsciiDoc numerous times in the past and I still think it has great utility.
