<div class="moz-cite-prefix">Dear HOT:<br>
I think this is my first post to this list, so I should introduce
myself: I'm Felix from Germany living in Nicaragua for some years
now. I came to HOT as I was invited to speak at SOTM-US in San
Francisco about our Managua (Nicaragua's capital) mapping effort
on transit mapping . I attended the BoF on HOT during the
conference and Mikel asked me to help out with the HOT website, as
I'm a Drupal developer for work. You are invited to check my
website  or drupal.org profile  for more information about
Lately, I have been working together with Clara on the migration
of the Drupal 7 port and would like to get things pushed forward.
But please let me explain my motivation for that:<br>
IMHO the website is as good as it the actual live site, or even a
bit better, although there are some open issues. We have not
getting reported mayor concerns so far for the Drupal 7 port. But
we have a somehow a little annoying situation: We already migrated
content and everything from the old site to the new Drupal 7
version. So any new content and comments have to be added
manually now to the new website (or we would need an automatic
workflow which would be quite a lot of work). Therefore I spent
several hours on migrating newer content and comments form the old
site, added after the migration work started and I would rather
prefer to spend work into improving the website and fixing bugs,
than manual content migration.<br>
So I would like to ask you to check the new website , report
problems to our issue queue  And give Dražen and the website
team (Clara and myself) a thumbs up, so we can migrate anytime
Thank you and have an excellent week.<br>

we are currently updating the HOT website (Drupal 7) - and we are
currently checking whether everything works as it should.
For now it's mainly a software upgrade, and we need some people to look
at it to see whether everything still works as you know it.

At the moment there aren't many real changes - new functionality will
come as a next step. For now we just need to know whether we have
One thing that still needs fixing: the small maps for projects will use
the Humanitarian base layer.
And for those of you who have a login for the page there are three new
*Text editor:* There now is a format called "Text editor" with buttons
to edit the text instead of writing HTML tags.
*Inserting images:* Updates have a new field for images, combined with
an "Insert button" to place them in the text.
*Languages:* All content can be marked as English or French. That's
currently not used further, but already set up.
I'll describe it in more detail once we are done.
So, please have a look around and tell us if anything looks broken -
either by email or on IRC.
