If you follow Incyanity via RSS, your reader app may have exploded yesterday with fourteen new posts. Sorry, not sorry! They are all for Heart of the Empire. I decided, rather spur of the moment, to post various notes and other tidbits to the HOTE Compendium in an effort to help myself get organized and continue worldbuilding for this story. For this reason, all of the posts are for members only and they all have spoiler warnings attached to them. I’m open to feedback, discussion, and suggestions from members on this content, but please do take the spoiler warnings seriously. :)
I’ve finished reposting content to Incyanity and feel pretty good about the state the site is in now. Hallelujah!
Success! Thanks to some help from StackOverflow I’ve been able to solve the problem with the member-only content. The solution seems really silly to me, but it does work, so now I am working on reposting the missing content. :) Look for articles appearing in the menu with a lock icon next to them. Existing chapters of Heart of the Empire will be reposted too. The chapters will have public previews and require a member account to read the balance, as before.
I’ve run into a roadblock with reposting the member-only content.
This version of Incyanity is being built using Joomla. Joomla has built-in user registration and permissions settings, which is great! It has built-in syndication feeds, which is also great!
Alas, apparently these two things don’t get along. Since I don’t use user registration or permissions on my other two websites, this is my first time monkeying around with it in Joomla, and either I’ve found a bug OR things are “working as intended” which (if that’s the case) to me is just really stupid.
I posted a protected “test” article, and from the website front end, everything works as it should: visitors who aren’t logged in get an error message, etc. But in the Atom and RSS feeds for HOTE?… The whole freaking article shows up! Dumb, dumb, dumb.
Or I did something wrong and have no idea what. That could be it, too! No help has been forthcoming yet from the Joomla forum so I may have to go searching for a solution elsewhere… But in the meantime, that’s why nothing else has reappeared just yet. I’ll be working on public-only content until that issue is resolved.
Incyanity has been neglected for a long time. :) Too long, in fact!
The rebuild has begun. I’ve wiped out all prior member accounts, historical blog entries, comments, articles, everything. I’m going to be picky about what I repost, as I need to be able to focus my energy so that I’ll actually be able to create new content rather than being bogged down all the time in trying to make the website work.
For now, only a few public articles are available under Heart of the Empire as well as a few other general pages. The member-only content will return soon. If clicking a menu item doesn’t result in actually going to a new page, it’s because the content hasn’t been restored yet.
