Uh Oh, Odoo Community Forum Not so Open?
by Hawke Robinson published May 31, 2020 last modified May 31, 2020 11:06 AM — filed under: , , ,
I recently posted an Odoo community forum question asking about any options exporting from a newer version (Odoo 13), backwards to an older edition (Odoo 12). They instead tagged it as "not a question" and now it doesn't appear to show up on the community site even when searching for it. This is very dishonest, not open, and worrisome that they have a policy of covering up such questions. That worries me...

Years ago I fought with trying to get Plone to work on OpenBSD, to no avail. Recently I was able to get Plone 4.3 working on OpenBSD 6.0, but not Plone 5.0.6.. I was finally able to get Plone 5.0.7 Unified Installer working on OpenBSD 6.1!
Heartbroken about what Plone has become :-(

I have been involved with tech since the late 1970s when I first started programming. Fast-forward to the web, and content management systems and web applications, platforms, products, frameworks, etc. Plone has been a stellar solution up until the version 5.x line, and since then something seems to be going more and more "wrong" with the development and community, which breaks my heart...

Discord With Discourse
by Hawke Robinson published Nov 17, 2016 last modified Dec 02, 2016 02:04 PM — filed under: , , , ,
The people at Discourse.org should be embarrassed, if not downright ashamed, with their product and founder. Do not use the Discourse forum product or services. I can now recommend people instead consider using NodeBB, NOT Discourse.
An Alternative to Plone?
by Hawke Robinson published Aug 08, 2011 last modified Sep 10, 2015 05:23 PM — filed under: ,
Plone has been having a rash of severe, critical, security compromises to all versions the past seveal months, and even their hotfixes and newer releases have ended up regressing back into newer versions. The multiple exploits this year have been severe, and impacting all versions of Plone since at least 2.5.

You may have seen my various postings about the decline of Plone sine 5.x. A recent solicitation email prompted a revival of our disappointment and real issues and challenges we're dealing with as we try to find a platform to migrate to from Plone 5.x.
