Yes, I've seen that, I thought it was a me thing, but now that I see the URL outside the box I see the problem.

Will check to see about fixing it.

OK, this should do it. Forgot that I have to restart the app when the email sender breaks and I have to fix it.

Links should be working now.

It's time for my semi-annual reminder that there are actually good forum software packages around, many of which even support users staying logged in.

A third party was kind enough to package Discourse into a normal Docker image:

Yeah, but I'd have to port the history and then integrate it with the rest of the website content or port that somewhere as well.

I just wasted a couple months of non-work time completely rebuilding a couple of other hobby sites of mine and thus got no writing done on the other three books.

So right now I am having my routine morning anxiety attacks about how far behind I am on the three books I have promised....

At some point, I will need to redo this site and forums, the main site is a CMS and I am stuck on a very old version because the new version uses a very different technology (MVC vs webforms) and the theme generator I use doesn't work well with MVC (works great for php/bootstrap and lots of other stuff, but not MVC) So porting my theme(s) would be enough of a pain that I'd want to migrate everything to new platform---

I actually want to get it to something like joomla, drupal or worst case Wordpress, but the content migration is something I don't want to spend the time on yet, I'd rather be writing...so I don't have readers with pitchforks chasing me around the web...

There have been...however...there are lots of creative and content oriented details that I control freak out over...

Authors are like DM's, GM's. They are control freaks and like to micromanage entire worlds...

I use Joomla3 for work and I'd say... be careful. It'll nickel & dime on the extensions and themes. It has some power, but it takes a while to get used to things (took me a couple of weeks of 8-5 research and practice before I figured most of it out). Admittedly once it is up and running it looks and works beautifully. That initial setup and learning is a killer though.

Well in that case...sounds exactly like the sort of project I invariably take on. I have gone through tons of money on add ons and extensions to presumably free or low cost products....all of which take inordinate amounts of time.

I actually have test Joomla, Drupal and WP sites that I played with for a while. Those I can all get a semblance of the theme (or color variants if I wish), it's just the content...all the content and then what extensions work best...

Incredible amounts of playing around and experimenting--which is stuff I love to do--but which is generally not particularly productive when trying to get something out the door.

Hence my whole point of--I need to buckle down and focus on writing.

I was too tied up with day job and those other sites I got distracted on, to get much (anything other than edits) this spring and am finally back to story telling so trying to stay focused...
