Community Server No More?

It used to be that Community server was the end all be all of .net community sites, although this still may be true I will never know because I can’t afford the $5k for the license. Oh yeah, it is no longer Community Server, it’s now Telligent Community and all links to the community generated software from which they grew are now gone. It is a shame that they can’t be bothered to host the same links that helped to build their business among small websites. These are the sites their software helped to grow thus building the brand and allowing Telligent to gain momentum with the large companies they now cater to. To be quite blunt Telligent did not just stop supporting previous versions, they removed all remnants that anything had ever existed.

Did something happen to require you to reinstall CS 2.1, 2007 or 2008.5? Too bad if you did not save the file and did not pay. You, my friend, are done.

I was lucky enough to have a CS 2007 license and was able to email support to obtain a copy to reinstall but those running a free version should be careful to keep a daily backup.

Don’t get me wrong, I am all for building a business and making money but I don’t think that you should kill all support for and erase all traces of the software that built your business.

Site Update

Yesterday the site was updated from Community Server 2.1 to Community Server 2007. Yes, I know, I am behind on the upgrade schedule but CS 2007 is what I had a license for. One of my dogs just had a costly surgery so I wanted to add ad’s to the site so I could possibly break even on the hosting costs. Long story short the site is updated and now has ad’s (Sorry, but help a brother out here).

Trying Out Windows Live Writer


This is kind of a test post to see if Windows Live Writer with the CS Gallery plugin plays nice with CS… If you are reading this and can see the picture below I guess it does.
