August 2003 - Posts
I finally managed to have my content XML schema version 2.
me to edit the content of my site in World 2003. I have to say that it is pretty
cool to type articles in World and then just to save them in XML and post then
on the site.
Finally it is online!!! After some weeks of work I managed to have the new version of my site online. The change was initiated by my hoster because they will not support anymore .NET Framework 1.0 by 1st of September.
Basically here are the changes:
- .NET Framework 1.1 usage
- RSS Feed for all contents: Articles, How To, News.
- PDF creation for all articles
- New logo, I am not a designer so... I hope it is ok :)
But the biggest changes where done internally:
- InfoPath usage to post News
- Word XML to write articles
- nFop usage to generate articles
- Added a cache to the XML Web Service client (a tool to get content from other site)
- And certainly more that I cannot remember.
Visit the site here and please let me know what you thing about it in the comments, thanks!
New features on the new version of my website. I worked out a little more the pdf document generator using nFOP. Now the pictures that are displayed on the web pages are also displayed on the pdf version of the different articles. I had to work also on the XSLT file transforming my XML articles to XSL-FO.
I still have a stange bug with the link in the pdf. The mouse pointer is changed to show that there is a link but at the top of the text. As much as the text is at the bottom of the document as much as the link is at the top of the text. Anyone is using nFOP?
You might check a sample rendering here. The article is in french, but you'll get the idea.
Happy Birthday Fiona !!!
I worked a lot, tests and develoment, today to be able to have my site running with .NET Framework 1.1. Basically it is working now but I am still having some issue with DTS to update my PROD database with the data from my TEST Database. Sometimes it fails copying datas from 6 tables sometimes from 5. Really strange. I can't get it. If someone as a step by step dumb way to transfert data from two SQL Servers 2000, I would appreciate.
I also updated the way we work with my brother on VSS. Now we use Draco.NET
to be informed of the update of the other and to be sure to constently integrate without any issue. This tools rocks, whenever you can configure it.
