General Questions about Geeklog

Geeklog looks like a great script. I have some general questions:

1. If I install it in a subdirectory on my server, will it be possible to seemlessly copy the installation over to a new domain after the fact? It would still be on the same server, but would be under a new domain.

2. The language support seems really good--am I mistaken, or is it an exceptional feature for each user to be able to personalise the language? (I didn't notice that option in Xoops, for example).

3. In the Calendar plugin, the directions say:

Submitting an event to Geeklog will put your event on the master calendar where users can optionally add your event to their personal calendar. This feature is NOT meant to store your personal events such as birthdays and anniversaries.


Does this mean what it says? If so, why the distinction between "my calendar" and the "master calendar"? Just curious... Is it so I can add to my calendar only those events from the master calendar that really interest me?

4. I found some discussion of the possibility of including images with articles--is this practical yet? (I was unable to do it in a "preview" of a test submission).


Thanks for the help and for the good work you are doing here.

Yes, just need to modify your paths in config.php and lib-common.php. I do this all the time

the master calendar would be the site calendar viewable by all whereas the personal calendar works on a per user basis.

as admin you can use images in articles. as the instructions say on the story editor, you should save your story as a draft prior to previewing it if you are intending to preview it. that way your images will be uploaded and properly stored.

hope that helps.. and I don't know the answer to #2.

As far as for the language of the interface, you can set your native (if available) language.

Thank you, machinari-- and robin! --that pretty much answers my questions. If I decide to use it, I will make the the domain change before I add any serious content or modifications, so it sounds like the switchover won't be difficult.

For anyone else that has additional questions on this topic, I located a number of resources by searching for "change domain name" in the advanced search feature. Here is one of them:
