Tidying the blog

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

We are just about to start dandering for dosh day 3 & so far despite a few injuries (mainly to me), some very rough terrain and much scorching of the sun – we all appear to be enjoying it Day 2 mostly involved us being mountain goats, although we did get an hour on the beach on the fabulous Warren & kitty ‘ s inflatable sofas. Loving the dander so far – more news and pictures to follow ;). The post dandering for dosh -the story so far appeared first on Social Shaz [read] Keywords:

Last night we managed to close a PMR that had been open for a few weeks on a strange issue with Community Widgets. After remapping the connections admin user everything worked exactly as expected except for 2 tiny issues – Adding the blogs and surveys widgets inside a community thew a nasty error. Thanks to Justin Cornell in IBM support we managed to get to the bottom of the issue by remapping the widgets admin user even though it was mapped correctly.

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

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
