Site Migration

  • The process of moving the HPR site to its new location and implementing all of the features has been going on during August:

    • Working on updating links on documentation pages
    • Moving RSS feeds from the dynamic part of the site to the static side
    • Making the comment forms work the same as before
    • Making tags clickable
    • Fixing Unicode problems
    • Fixing various small bugs like the calculation of when to show the "Call for shows" message""
  • There are a number of problems yet to be tackled:

    • Making links to pictures and other supplementary files work
    • Making links in comments clickable
  • We have had a number of very helpful problem reports, mainly through the #HPR channel on Matrix.

  • It's also possible to raise issues on the Gitea site at, though it's necessary to have a username on the site before this can be done.
