Tidying the blog
Sharon    

Today I decided to tidy my blog and to try and make a bit of sense out of all the *stuff* I throw up on this site ..

That is throw up as in post .. not as in .. well you know what I meen …

Anyways after much hacking and slashing at php files, creating new templates for pages, new side bars for said pages and eventually getting my head around functions again, I think I have myself organised.

The SocialShazza site now has two main topics .. Technology and Disney.

All of the Disney stuff can be found under the Disney heading, and all of the Connections related things can be found under the connections heading.
All blog posts will still appear on the front page, but I have made category pages for Disney and Connections to appear under their menus.

This means I can now highlight awesome new stuff like Paul and Gab’s Connections 101 and people can find it easily :)

I am hoping now that will mean that things will be easier to read and find here – although I am open to suggestions on keeping it tidy ;) and that much of the Disney will be filtered out for those weirdo’s that don’t “Do” Disney – and for those of you that do all the wonderful Disney goodness is all in one place for you now :)

as Tigger would say TTFN – ta ta for now ;)

 
Sorry I couldn’t help myself

If you are interested in helping IBM shape the search application inside Connections there is a survey that you can participate in. This is a short survey to better understand attitudes and behaviours around search and how users – well – use it You can find the search survey here Fill it in and you will make a Connections product manager very happy [read] Keywords: connections ibm application

Odd issue with Connections Mail
Wed, Apr 2nd 2014 6:10a   Sharon Bellamy
I have been looking to implement Connections mail for a while for one of my customers, after finally sorting out some SSO issues we had been seeing I was ready to deploy into their DEV/TEST environment. No problem I thought – Connections mail is a very simple install a couple of config files and a quick wsadmin command to get the help to work. Once I had deployed I was seeing the strangest issues - Contact your system administrator: Missing element with class=”os-site-mail-notify [read] Keywords: connections google skype

So thanks to some very good fortune and help from an old and awesome friend I was able to make the Connect conference in Orlando last week. I will post my full round up later in the week – but the highlights The Good SPEAKING for the first time with my good friend Christoph Stoettner  I am not ashamed to say I was extremely nervous about speaking at Connect for the first time, but if I have the opportunity to do so again I will grab it with both hands The flow for the first two days wit [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm sametime community twitter

Alas I will not be at Connect this year
Mon, Jan 6th 2014 10:09a   Sharon Bellamy
Due to circumstances out of my control, I will not make the IBM Connect conference this year. To say I am devastated would be an understatement – as I was due to speak with my friend Christoph. I will miss the great sessions, the opportunity to catch up with remote colleges, visit the user experience lab (which I have done every year I have been), chat with the product managers and developers and participate in the Champion activities. I will mostly miss catching up with the great people o [read] Keywords: ibm community networking twitter

It is an honor and a privilege to have been chosen with my friend and Christoph Stoettner to speak at this years Connect / Lotusphere conference. This will be the 4th Connect / Lotusphere I have attended but the first I have spoken a full session at – in previous years I have helped run a BOF and have spoken at speedgeeking. We will be speaking in the Best Practices track, sharing our admin and scripting tips and tricks to help make a Connections Admin’s day a little easier The ful [read] Keywords: admin connections ibm lotusphere

mod_deflate compressing your Connections pages before they hit the client
Mon, Nov 25th 2013 8:15a   Sharon Bellamy
I have also posted this over on the Cube Soft Blog The Apache v2 module mod_deflate is extremely handy if you are serving IBM Connections up to remote locations with little bandwidth. Some of the Connections pages have large css or java script files that are required to function correctly but for countries that have poor connection to the remote server this causes slow page load times and sometimes timeouts. So mod_deflate to the rescue .. open your httpd.conf file and ensure that the mod_defla [read] Keywords: connections ibm bug css java server

Thu, Nov 21st 2013 7:14a   Sharon Bellamy
thanks to my friend Gabriella Davis for the heads up on this awesome linux tool I was having issues with the Sametime TURN server timing out due to my linux session dying or timing out and Gab suggested to look up the screen command. It is a simple yet affective tool which is implemented usually by default on a linux server that allows you to reconnect to a screen initiated session you simply enter the command screen from your linux servers command line – the remote session may look like n [read] Keywords: sametime linux server twitter

Fri, Nov 15th 2013 7:16a   Sharon Bellamy
I have also blogged this over on the Cube Soft company blog - with my good friend Mr Tim Clark we have created a script for starting and stopping IBM Connections on Red Hat (RHEL) The script has a bunch of variables to allow you to input the path to the WebSphere deployment manager and nodes, and a place to enter the names of your Connections servers. Please visit Tim’s blog for all the information and to download the script. [read] Keywords: connections ibm red hat twitter websphere

Connections 4.0 cr issues when you have a shared data folder not on the WAS server
Fri, Nov 15th 2013 7:16a   Sharon Bellamy
We have spotted a lovely issue with patching Connections 4 to CR2 and above when using a < connections path > /data/shared folder on anything other than a single WAS node. For example in a standard one node connections install the < connections path > /data/shared folder is on the same machine as the connections instance .. in a multi-node instance the shared data folder is normally on a san / network share. In my instance the shared data was on a RHEL nfs share that was mapped to th [read] Keywords: connections ibm javascript network server websphere widget
