    @hhsnopek @wkentdag - @foxpaul and I are going to be focussing on Rooftop pretty much exclusively in August. Will prioritise fixing the dev environment and documenting.

    @hhsnopek
    is there a changelog anywhere?
    Ed Jones
    @edtjones
    @hhsnopek here's a quick overview of what's happened recently. Anything specific you need to know? https://rooftopcms.readme.io/v1.0/blog/welcome-to-rooftop-cms
    Henry Snopek
    @hhsnopek
    nothing specific, just looking to see what was changed before v1.2
    thanks!
    Ed Jones
    @edtjones
    Up 'til now we've been a bit lackadaisical about changelogging. v sorry. If you come up against stuff you can't work out, let me know and I'll trawl the commit logs.

    @hhsnopek
    sounds good - until you sent me this I was looking thru commit logs :)
    thanks!

    wow, you guys have really improved the docs a lot!
    this is fantastic :tada:
    we really appreciate it over here at carrot
    Ed Jones
    @edtjones
    Pleased to hear it @jescalan :-) docs are never finished are they?
    Jeff Escalante
    @jescalan
    haha no, no they aren't

    Has anyone been able to filter by custom taxonomies with the API?
    I saw that meta_key and meta_value were available, but not having any luck with the taxonomies
    Chris Earls
    @cearls
    actually, i can filter by taxonomy using: filter[taxonomy]=taxonomy&filter[term]=term-slug
    if i associate the taxonomy using the built-in wordpress UI that displays in the right sidebar of the edit page
    but, I was trying to add the taxonomy field through ACF and filter by it
    just use the wordless taxonomy UI separately from ACF?
    Ed Jones
    @edtjones
    We've certainly done it with the built-in WP taxonomy field. I will investigate the ACF way of doing it and respond here
    (might be tomorrow UK time sorry)
    sorry forgot to tag you @cearls - will look at what's happening and respond here.
    Chris Earls
    @cearls
    thank you, no rush, i don’t mind using the built-in WP taxonomy field
    Ed Jones
    @edtjones
    Hi @cearls - @foxpaul and I have been playing around with taxonomies a bit. Can you describe your use-case here? Are you adding a custom field in ACF which you're trying to filter on (i.e. not a wordpress taxonomy)? That's possible, but it doesn't use the taxonomy filters. Instead you have to use the meta key and meta value attributes. Or maybe I've misunderstood?
    Chris Earls
    @cearls
    @edtjones I created a taxonomy in Content Setup. Then, I added a relational taxonomy field in ACF. I tried to filter on it using meta_key and meta_value, but I wasn’t able to make it work.
    Ed Jones
    @edtjones
    Got it @cearls I'll have a play and see if I can come up with the answer :)

    Hey - looks like an update has broken a bunch of links in the instance I have of rooftopcms

    Hey guys, I'm setting up the self hosted rooftopcms for my rails app. I've tried to install the rooftop-api-authentication plugin on my hostgator hosted wordpress install, but I keep getting an error when I attempt to activate the plugin. error - Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in /home2/jnashpor/public_html/railstest/wp-content/plugins/rooftop-api-authentication-development/admin/class-rooftop-api-authentication-admin.php on line 109. I was initially using wordpress version 4.7.4, but then downgraded to 4.3 to follow the tested version of the plugin as seen in the plugin repo. Is rooftop-api-authentication the correct plugin that I should be using to connect rooftopcms to my wordpress app or is there some other way I should be making the connection?
    Ed Jones
    @edtjones
    Hey @nupejosh - hmm. Will have to investigate. Would you mind opening a GitHub issue on the rooftopcms project?
    Joshua Smith
    @nupejosh
    @edtjones thanks, I just opened a Github issue

    Hi guys. Did you ever have any luck figuring out the redirect loop issue when you do a clean install? I've managed to pick my way through everything else and got it to a stage where I think everything is working, but the redirect loop trying to get to http://rooftop-cms.local/wp-signup.php?new=rooftop-cms.local (I've changed .dev tlds with .local because of ICANN collisions) is preventing me actually getting in and trying it out
    Ed Jones
    @edtjones
    hi @djeglin hmm. we DID have a problem with that. But I thought we'd sorted by making the vagrant box stub out the WP database.
    this is the script which runs. Maybe try running manually in your vagrant box? https://github.com/rooftopcms/rooftop-cms/blob/master/vvv-init.sh
    David Eglin
    @djeglin
    I'll take a look when I get back to my machine later. From memory this might have been where I saw an error come up about it not appearing that it was a Wordpress directory or something, so that might be why it hasn't been fully stubbed out
    Ed Jones
    @edtjones
    Ok @djeglin keep me posted. I'm pretty sure I can consistently get a new Rooftop instance spun up with the instructions on http://rooftopcms.readme.io but let me know if that's not true.
    David Eglin
    @djeglin
    @edtjones Manually running the steps in that script from the right place worked! I don't know why it fell over the first time - possibly something I got wrong.
    now to spend some time working out how to go from a local development environment to a production environment
    thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
    David Eglin
    @djeglin
    So... If I add a new site now, after getting the base Rooftop installation to work, the subdomain doesn't work (predictably). Is there a step I missed to allow wildcard subdomains to bind to Rooftop or something?
    Ed Jones
    @edtjones
    @djeglin you need to add hosts for that. There's a
    Whoops fat fingered. @djeglin there is a Vagrant plugin called hostsupdater. And there's a config file which I will dig out tomorrow somewhere in the project for you to define your subdomains.
    David Eglin
    @djeglin
    I got all that. Are subdomains a manual thing on this? Fine if it is... just want to be sure
    Ed Jones
    @edtjones
    @djeglin yes, you define the hosts in a config file and then when the vagrant box is provisioned / booted, the hosts are added to your /etc/hosts.

    @edtjones Hi! I'm installing the self-hosted version and I've hit the part where I'm stuck in a redirect loop from the wp-signup. There's an issue on GH that mentions it but nothing specific. I've removed query strings as you suggested but it still happens. Any suggestions? Cheers
    Ed Jones
    @edtjones
    @thomasxbanks hi! Weird. there's obviously some case I haven't accounted for here. It seems like maybe the init script isn't running right. If you vagrant ssh into the box and run the contents of this, does it solve the issue? https://github.com/rooftopcms/rooftop-cms/blob/master/vvv-init.sh
    Thomas Banks
    @thomasxbanks
    Thanks @edtjones I'll give it a go :)
