Site redux update

Hi all,

As you’ve probably noticed, the forums are back online. I did my best to sandbox it, change passwords etc. etc., but really, I won’t be happy until the site has been overhauled.

On that note, the new site is coming along well! There will be a few new changes, including most notably:

  • Documentation will now be stored on github (but available at docs.formtools.org like now). This will allow people to contribute tutorials, documentation, fix typos and update anything out of date.
  • I’m dropping the demo. The demo is a monster – overcomplicated, slow and doesn’t give users a good enough impression of the script. So the first version of the new site won’t include it at all. I know this is a bit of a step down, but I need to tame the website and get it under control. If it included the demo, I’d be working on it until doomsday. I will probably add a demo back in again at a later date, but not for some time.
  • The new site will be hosted elsewhere.

There’s still lots and lots of work to be done, but progress is being made…

– Ben

    Just a little recent Formtools love note… lol. It had been a little while since I needed to put together a sophisticated form, but recently I was asked to put together an online workflow triggered by a public-facing html form. Formtools (even without an update in quite a while!) handled 95% of the requirements with aplomb. I’m psyched to see what it can do now that it’s back under development.

    Thanks Andy! Things are going slow, for sure – but that’s kind of the nature of the beast once a script gets this size. Still, sluggin’ away… :)
