FYI - slightly off-topic but related: for those looking for a tool to email articles to a Mambo site, check out this announcement about mambobymail: http://mbaas.de/content/view/41

I refer to this thread about cm2f in a comment on htat page, and suggest that digitalgraal and michael baas get together. :-) Between cm2f for smf and mambobymail we'll be able to achieve a great deal in terms of connecting email users to online communities and website content.

Best wishes,

Tobias

yes, i am using the 1.1. beta 3 version to make the tests,
and i don't think there should be any problem with any other version.
Maybe it is something that could be test.

~1.0.X forum Users~,
I do not see much sense in testing "mail to forumS"
at forums which have no "postS from forum" feature..
while 1.1 have it. Do open my eyes more widely please.


digitalgraal,
The header of the topic (~if any~)
should contain "CM2Fs (mail to forums)"
    instead of "CM2F  (mail to forum)"

I would better suggest "Mail to Forums Community (M2FsC)".

For the sake of comfort of an unlimited number of new Readers
incoming from the outside posts along the grivitonicks
 (if to say more precisely -
   "having clicked any outgoing ~grivifromnick~.. out there")

it is time to begin modifying your heading post of the topic
where You should have wrote:
I hope to have a fully working version by the end..
 that i will open to an unlimited number of Users
 in order to see what flags are still not present.

(Do you imagine how many flags could be placed in one line..)


Then I will modify my post following your heading post to :
digitalgraal,
Please add me to that unlimited number of Users..
                        of the boundless M2FsC forums.

Ah, I've been wondering about this too.

While getting Cm2F<>SMF working is of course the first milestone; given that a working bridge between smf and mambo already exists, an integration with mambobymail would be very powerful indeed :)

Hope we wouldn't be overloading you too much Digitalgraal for this further integration, but I've noticed you've worked with the mambo portal before (with phpbb)

cheers

Hi,

Tobias sent me a month ago the link  and i was looking into  it.


As CM2F is integrating Emails, Forums (PhpBB, SMF and now Mybboard, and very soon VBulletin, XarBB, PunBB, Invision, etc ...) and CMS, i was thinking in positionning CM2F as a Community Router tool, that would be allow content to flow across any community buidling tool.
For example, at this moment, i am able to route messages between PhpBB and SMF in my testing environment. I am now including myBBoard as well

CM2F have already RSS and GMAIL features built init so the loop is closing very fast.

So it will be something that i will definitivly get into CM2F.

Regards,
D.

Very nice to hear :)

BTW, would the current smf-cm2f you are developing, work with Orstio's smf-mambo bridge?

Hi Rhizome,

i am using very standard things from SMF, my experience with phpbb ports is that CM2F is able to adapt transparently to any port or bridge made of the original forum. So, this is something that needs to be tested, but i am 100% sure that it will work without any problem.

D.

In my case i have it working with mailinglists. The users are not allowed to subscribe. They need to susbcribe to the majordomo mailinlist.

I like this. My hope is to replace fud forum with SMF using CM2F on my system. Fud is currently configured as the archiver for mailman (piping mailman messages into fud forums instead of to a mhonarc/pipermail archive) and fud posts are delivered to mailman from the posting user's email address. Works brilliantly.

I'm looking forward to the testing.

Cheers,

Tobias

This is a pretty cool idea, but please don't try to incorporate too much into CM2F. The goal at this stage should be to get a workable release out so that more people will understand what it is that we are trying to achieve and buy into it. Weaning people off Yahoo Groups and the like and getting them to use our SMF forums will be a huge achievement - let's strive for that first.

Also, I think with the new blogging and RSS tools coming out it should become possible to quite easily share content between community websites. Take a look at Drupal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drupal) and  Soapbox (http://www.picnet.net/soapbox_toolset.html) for two tools that do this sort of thing already. Soapbox is unfortunately not open source but makes use of Mambo and Democracy in Action (http://www.democracyinaction.org/dia/), which are. Ryan Ozimek is behind Soapbox and lurks on these forums.

Cheers,

Tobias

:) No i will not try to incorporate too much.

My main focus is now on SMF.

I am also making very quick progress with Mybboard, Vbulletin and Xaraya XarBB.

The metalayer and morph features that i have been improving with SMF are making the port almost trivial. My main problem was always how to integrate the admin interfaces that CM2F needs to be used to configure the system. Now that i have overcome this limitation, everything is very easy.

The other features will come by its own sinergy.

Hello all,

sorry for the delay but i have been busy with some aspects of my professional life.

Netherless here am i. I am going to send the files to the betatesters that i have send me an email during this evening or, at most, by tomorrow morning.
I am trying to finish the current documentation in order to have some kind of minimalistic guidance into installing and confiuring CM2F.

Where should the support be done? Through this SMF forum or through my website digitalgraal?

Hello D

Looking forward to testing out CM2F

I guess maybe the beta testing support could take place on your site, on the demo smf forum you've set up? http://smf.digitalgraal.dyndns.org/
Otherwise it may confuse other users viiewing this thread (non-beta testers) if beta support takes place on this thread?
When CM2F is ready for release, then support could come back on this thread then.

Though, maybe a better way of doing things

Hi Rhizome,

you are right, and it was what i was thinking of.

I would like to know if there is someone that will try CM2F on a SMF+MAmBO solution. I would like to know how the system will behave?

Since the number of people that wants to beta test is not to big, around 8 or 9, i will not restrict the numbers of beta testers.

I will send you some notifications by email.

Could you add me to your list of beta testers? I emailed you once before about beta testing, but I can send another message in case you don't have that anymore.

Hi Digital Graal

I have a mambo test site  with smf. So I can test your stuff there. It is in Turkish but I  was planning to  transform it in bilingual site anyway. So you can have an idea of what is going on. I would also report in plain English any issue.

hi,

no problem about a turkish site:) the important thing is to see how the system would perform in the mambo integrated. I don't have the time to do it myself and after having seen some sites with the integration done, i was impressed.

Hello all,

i have had some problems with my homesite so i delayed until now the sending the files. Since i have now recovered i will be sending the files during the afternoon.
The support will be made from http://www.digitalgraal.dyndns.org where i will be creating a SMF Thread, i want to leave the http://smf.digitalgraal.dyndns.org as a demo site where the users will be able to test the application, without being annoyed by other discussions and vice versa beta testers by users.

The documentation is not yet very good but i will try to improve it along the way.

I will send initially an email to all the betatesters that have sent to me their email in order to see if they are ready to start and receive the files.

D.

Why donĀ“t you just upload the files to your site,
so many more betatesters can try it ?

Many thanks for your hard work.
