(without admin privs, anyway, heh).
Well, there is a technical complication.
Rooms in which messages are networked couldn't easily permit editing, as the edited message would need to be sent over the network. Plus, how would someone know if the person editing the message is the same person who originated the message... you'd have to ensure you could only edit the message from the same server that you wrote the message.
It would get rather complicated, without having looked at the original code myself.
The real technical complication is that Citadel's entire data model is built around the idea that a message, once committed to the store, is immutable.
Even in a Wiki room, pages are referenced by tags that point to a *new* message after editing.
I would like to find a way to make that sort of tag system work in a blog room. For an email message or something posted in a forum, not so much.
What you said is what you said and it's not fair to allow it to be changed.
Subject: Backup for Citadel Server and Mail Boxes.
Am new to this citadel.
Just deployed and testing.
Have couple of doubts.
Need your expertise on the following...
- How to take backup the server configuration without shutting down the service or server
- How to take backup of the users mail boxes.
- For a 100 users what could be the hardware specs and finally
- Do i require to install Funambol to get mails delivered to mobile phones
Thanks in advance
Just wandering through. I think editing of messages is required for some, but it is not a bad idea having "think first write once" functionality: stroke of genius infact! B)
I like that I can use the text client with my cell phone, for all my Uncensored needs. Simple interface, really. But effective.
How do you work with calendar data and contacts via the text client? It shows only the type of data when i have looked at it, but not the actual appointment etc/or contact.
Oh! I see! I had to ask after seeing someone using the text client on their phone.
Well we can still access the mail system so it's still very useful without the groupware features.
Yeah, I just like to be able to send or receive messages this way. I don't need the other stuff, really.
I suppose you could write your own text client. I know someone who has :-)
hm, I must admit i'd rather use mutt to read mails on a terminal...
I always liked pine better than mutt. Seems more intuitive to me.
I kinda like elm, myself. Powerful features, and still fairly easy to use.
