85: [21:24:58] <irogue_> Frank's client is happy, what I was working on is for a deployment this Thursday
86: [21:31:15] <Stomach> how could you not be happy with Frank
87: [21:31:18] <Stomach> hes so cheerful
88: [21:46:15] * Kingy[a] is now known as Kingy
89: [21:46:41] <Kingy> hey all
90: [21:47:13] <zippy__> hello
91: [21:47:36] <Ryan-Toast> One of my websites doesn’t work in Sri anka. Weird.
92: [21:47:39] <Ryan-Toast> Lanka**
93: [21:49:03] * UncleCheese quit (Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…)
94: [21:51:43] <zippy__> Ryan-Toast: Routing issue, or is the site just too awesome?
95: [22:00:27] <spronk> hmm
96: [22:06:07] * UncleCheese has joined #silverstripe
97: [22:07:59] * Ryan-Toast quit (Quit: Ryan-Toast)
98: [22:09:20] * jordanmk has joined #silverstripe
99: [22:13:17] * Ryan-Toast has joined #silverstripe
100: [22:13:25] <Ryan-Toast> zippy__: I don’t know. I don’t know shit about domain biz :(
101: [22:16:35] <Ryan-Toast> zippy__: Is there any common routing problems I should check for?
102: [22:17:08] <zippy__> You can't do much about routing problems yourself, you could esculate to your hosting company
103: [22:17:29] <Ryan-Toast> zippy__: So it would be a hosting issue, not a domain issue?
104: [22:17:30] <zippy__> you could prove it by getting them to do a traceroute to your site (or you to their ip)
105: [22:17:51] <zippy__> yea it's not domain (unless they've blocked your domain) it would be more of a hosting issue
106: [22:18:05] <zippy__> maybe your host is blocking SL for some reason as well (like spam)
107: [22:18:15] <zippy__> With cloudflare you can turn off countries I believe
108: [22:18:50] <Stomach> yep, you sure can (bye uganda)
109: [22:19:25] <Ryan-Toast> Lol, sweet I’ll get in contact with them. Thanks fredrens.
110: [22:21:02] <zippy__> Stomach: What about if a rich uncle tries to visit your website and contract you… or is that Nigeria
111: [22:21:12] * zippy__ feels lazy doing the groceries online
112: [22:21:42] <Ryan-Toast> zippy__: I get a box of food delivered to me every week. I have reached the pinnicle.

122: [22:53:57] * antmas has joined #silverstripe
123: [22:56:45] <antmas> dat monday
124: [22:57:19] <zippy__> hmm
125: [22:57:36] <zippy__> 4 seconds after clicking a button to showing the changes via js is a bit of a wait (no ajax, just js)
126: [22:57:41] <zippy__> time to profile some js
127: [23:03:45] <jordanmk> hi guys
128: [23:03:59] <jordanmk> is there an easy way to get the path to the mysite directory?
129: [23:04:10] <jordanmk> within a controller function
130: [23:04:48] <Ryan-Toast> jordanmk: Director:absoluteURL.’mysite’
131: [23:04:54] <Ryan-Toast> or something like that
132: [23:05:09] <Stomach> dirname(__FILE__);
133: [23:05:17] <Stomach> will return the path the to current file
134: [23:05:41] <Ryan-Toast> Stomach: I think he wants to link to some css/image/js in his mysite or something
135: [23:05:49] <Stomach> oh
136: [23:06:13] <antmas> awww snap, neck beards have left
137: [23:06:15] <antmas> :O
138: [23:06:34] <Stomach> :(
139: [23:06:36] <jordanmk> yeah looking to use file_get_contents on a file in /mysite
140: [23:06:43] <jordanmk> cheers, i'll give that a try Ryan-Toast
141: [23:07:07] <irogue_> i thought there was a const for the project dir
142: [23:07:40] <antmas> that's what I thought
143: [23:07:48] <irogue_> ah
144: [23:07:49] <irogue_> method
145: [23:07:50] <irogue_> project()
146: [23:08:45] * antmas_ has joined #silverstripe
147: [23:08:54] <jordanmk> irogue_, what is that a method of?
148: [23:09:06] <jordanmk> what class does it belong to, i mean
149: [23:09:32] <zippy__> jordanmk: BASE_PATH . '/mysite/'
150: [23:10:07] <irogue_> jordanmk: it's top-level
151: [23:10:08] <irogue_> no class
152: [23:10:25] <antmas_> I thought it assumes its '/mysite/' unless otherwise specified?
153: [23:10:36] <antmas_> or do you HAVE to tell it where the BASE_PATH is?
154: [23:10:43] <zippy__> BASE_PATH is defined auto
155: [23:10:49] <antmas_> ah
156: [23:10:56] <irogue_> the project doesn't have to be mysite
157: [23:11:01] <zippy__> framework/core/Constants.php
158: [23:11:17] <antmas_> irogue_: I know, but it is most of the time
159: [23:11:50] <irogue_> yep, but it's better to use project() than hardcode it in case some smart guy decides to change it in future :)
160: [23:12:04] * antmas quit (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
161: [23:12:28] <zippy__> will project() get the path or just 'mysite' ? so you could do BASE_PATH . project() ?
162: [23:12:47] * simon_w|air has joined #silverstripe
163: [23:12:50] <antmas_> yeah I was thinkging this ^^^
164: [23:13:00] * antmas_ is now known as antmas
165: [23:13:10] <zippy__> BASE_PATH . '/' . $this->project()
166: [23:13:31] <jordanmk> zippy__: project() seems to return just 'mysite'
167: [23:13:36] <jordanmk> not the full path
168: [23:13:43] <antmas> hmm
169: [23:13:48] <zippy__> jordanmk: right, so prefix with BASE_PATH
170: [23:14:39] <irogue_> yep
171: [23:15:09] * gelignite quit (Quit: http://bit.ly/nkczDT)
172: [23:15:15] <jordanmk> i'm using $mysite_path = Director::baseFolder() . '/' . project() .'/';
173: [23:15:38] <jordanmk> as that method seems to account for an alternate base folder
174: [23:30:52] <simon_w|air> jordanmk, you can just use project() . '/blah'
175: [23:31:33] <simon_w|air> Bah, '../' . project() . '/blah'
176: [23:32:01] * camfindlay has joined #silverstripe
177: [23:32:21] <Ryan-Toast> camfindlay: Hack day was successful?
178: [23:33:23] <Ryan-Toast> Why would bots be forking all my github repos?
179: [23:33:37] <Stomach> because they love you
180: [23:33:51] <Ryan-Toast> I shall take one of them as my bride
181: [23:34:29] <Stomach> o_O
182: [23:34:43] <Ryan-Toast> Stomach: My brain is all fuzzy today.
183: [23:35:03] <Stomach> smoke too much crack this morning?
184: [23:35:09] <Ryan-Toast> Not enough.
185: [23:35:38] <Stomach> ah that old chestnut
186: [23:36:31] <Ryan-Toast> I was cold, then I rmemebered I have a space heater. Now I am wartm.
187: [23:36:34] <Ryan-Toast> warm**
188: [23:40:00] <simon_w|air> New job tomorrow :D
189: [23:40:47] <Ryan-Toast> simon_w: which company?
190: [23:40:58] <simon_w|air> One you haven't heard of :p
191: [23:41:14] <Ryan-Toast> simon_w: I want to look at their website, and judge them.
192: [23:42:05] <camfindlay> Ryan-Toast yes got a few things done, it’s an interanl day but I would encourage others that use SilverStripe CMS/Framework to maybe start doing them too :)
193: [23:42:29] <camfindlay> aiming to do them 1st Friday of each month (though this one was 2nd coz I had been away)
194: [23:42:59] * Azure quit (Quit: My MBP went to sleep.)
195: [23:43:05] <Ryan-Toast> camfindlay: Cool :)
196: [23:43:26] <Ryan-Toast> Hmm, seems like if you have a dataobject with a HtmlEditor form in it you can’t add images.
197: [23:43:29] <camfindlay> chillu also added a new item to the community dashboard to show unanswered forum posts
198: [23:43:37] <Ryan-Toast> via TinyMCI
199: [23:44:24] <Ryan-Toast> Anyone come accross this before?
200: [23:45:07] <simon_w|air> Ryan-Toast, wouldn't surprise me if the method you need to have the toolbar items work is in CMSMain rather than LeftAndMain
201: [23:46:27] * simon_w|air should get out of bed...
202: [23:46:36] <Ryan-Toast> simon_w: How do you mean?
203: [23:46:49] <Stomach> camfindlay, we did some stuff on Friday, I even visited the offices in Auckland and gave away treats :P
204: [23:50:34] * irogue_ noms one of Stomach's mallowpuffs
205: [23:51:15] <camfindlay> Stomach yes big thanks for that - I’ll let everyone know when the next one is
206: [23:51:35] <camfindlay> hopefully doing a proper hackfest in July too
207: [23:51:40] <Stomach> its really hard to get time inside of work hours ... cool
208: [23:51:52] <camfindlay> here in Welly, but maybe we get AK in on it.
209: [23:51:56] <Stomach> was just gonna say it would be good to have a proper hackfest up here, its really hard to get time inside of work hours
210: [23:52:07] <camfindlay> Maybe you can pitch to your company to let you do hackday ;)
211: [23:52:08] <Stomach> even if its just me in a room with a skype link, im okay with that
212: [23:52:11] * simon_w has joined #silverstripe
213: [23:52:31] <camfindlay> good for innovation and organisational learning ;)
214: [23:52:34] <Stomach> haha, or they can pitch continuing to pay me and client work :P already tried
215: [23:54:49] <camfindlay> fyi, I should be around a bit more over the next 4 weeks (I’m finishing off a degree and in between semesters!) - I have a couple of areas to look into 1) What’s really the core problem with docs? 2) What could be some good community metrics? Feel free to comment here or email me your thoughts and opinions about these points.
216: [23:55:33] <Ryan-Toast> “What’s really the core problem with docs?” More examples for noobs :D
217: [23:58:19] <Stomach> thats the problem Ryan-Toast, you can do so much with SS that covering it all in documentation would take forever
218: [23:58:31] <antmas> “What’s really the core problem with docs?” - ss23
219: [23:58:36] <antmas> XD
220: [23:58:41] <Stomach> and when people cant find a specific example for the specific thing they are specifically trying to do they get upset
221: [23:58:51] <simon_w|air> Also, the tutorials went to shit with the 3.0 rewrite
222: [23:59:35] <antmas> yah people seem to go: tuts->docs->IRC to complain about something not being in the docs, or they just can't navigate the docs properly
