@cmacdonell I think I’ve tracked down your auth issue to the fact that VM uses suPHP not mod php.

And suphp doesn’t pass the authentication header through at all
I’m trying to figure out a workaround. Or if you just have to swap versions of PHP entirely

[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] @all I'd like to try to plan a vacation (hello belated honeymoon!!!) for December 7 - 22. I figured this might be a good time instead of over the holidays since most will be off during that time. Let me know if there's any conflicts with this, or problems anyone might foresee!
[Daudi Were, Ushahidi] @Jess i insist you take the 25th of December off too
[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] haha i figured :-)

[Zack Halloran, Ushahidi] @jess @Robbie I'm just running down some host key issues for the deployment server and then I think we'll be good to go with a test environment. @robbie I'm getting 500 errors on the web branch. I'm going to poke around a bit this morning, but if I can't find anything I'll put an issue in the repo.
[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] that's awesome @ZackHalloran !
[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] not the web errors.... but the test environment

Is there a public Version 2 of Ushahidi somewhere? My goto sites of Atlanta's crimemap and Uchaguzi seem to be no more

@rjmackay great catch on the VM. Let me know if there is a workaround. Again, not urgent so don't waste too much time
@Jess, thanks, that will do

[amnesic, irc.freenode.net] Hello, a question about v3 : Any schedule to have the possibilty to add field media (photo) on a post type ?
Cam Macdonell
@cmacdonell
Sep 10 2015 19:32
I find the new V3 layout has a lot of whitespace. How configurable is the layout?
Is there a way to load an alternative CSS?
Ushbot

[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] thanks folks - i've got your questions lined up
Cam Macdonell
@cmacdonell
Sep 10 2015 19:37
Is there a way to share "Post types"?
So people aren't re-defining them?
Ushbot
@ushbot

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] http://ideditor.com/ is super easy to get started with Open street map

I miss the "tightness" of V2
what's the name of the npm, sorry?
Ushbot
@ushbot
Sep 10 2015 19:48
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] You can fork that to build your own CSS.
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Then we pull the pattern library into the client via NPM https://github.com/ushahidi/platform-client/blob/master/package.json#L90
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] so if you swap that URL, and rerun `npm install` then `gulp` you'd get a client build with your own CSS
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] @cmacdonell does that make sense?
Cam Macdonell
@cmacdonell
Sep 10 2015 19:51
Sharing post types?
For example, a post type for requesting shelter as you showed. Is there (or will there be) someway to import/export them
Ushbot
@ushbot
Sep 10 2015 19:54
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] So yes.. there probably will be eventually. Or it should become easy to do it with a plugin.
Cam Macdonell
@cmacdonell
Sep 10 2015 19:54
Is there somewhere I can read about the plugin architecture?

Sep 10 2015 20:01
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] @cmacdonell not yet sadly. Plugins aren't locked down yet. Though I should have general architecture diagrams done soon-ish
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] Thank you all for joining :)
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] see you all next week :)
[Jose Antonio Prado] Thank you!
[Daudi Were, Ushahidi] thank you all for the hard work !

Still need to figure out a good way to streamline changing layout / themes.
allowing theming (without potentially breaking the UI) is hard..

Has anyone launched Ushahidi V3 on RedHat's openshift? It's a heroku alternative
Robbie Mackay

not that I know of.. its been a while since I messed with open shift at all

Okay, just thought I'd check. I'm at RedHat HQ, so there's lots of help around :)
