Change the http part of the URL to https if one found.

The only problem is that it seems I can't download anything off it. Yeah, unavailable file (although it sees its size). And a weird XML message if I actually try to download anything off it. I think the only real risk is losing the database. Many have their personal backups as well, but some aren't in the community anymore, either by choice or for physical reasons. Doug's page redirects to asian pr0n, and I'm quite sure it's not the browser at fault.

It is https

edit. If any of you need some of the 'good stuff', check out the francophone forum. Lots of addons there. I only realised the OH thing when I wanted to install addons on the work computer :Dedit2 . hardly any MFDs there, though

@dbeachy1 are you aware of this?

It's probably my fault, related to a change I made yesterday ahead of taking an export. Apologies! I'll take a look at it.

That is correct, https://alteaaerospace.com and https://www.alteaaerospace.com are fine. Those pages in question must be linking to the obsolete-for-15-years-now "dougsorbiterpage.com", which was only used for a year or so back in 2005-2006. I didn't create any of those entries on OrbiterHangar, so I don't have edit access to them.

The download issues should be resolved now, this was as I suspected something I broke by looking at the code funny,

I've also amended old references to doug's former site in the addons which referenced them, so no more inappropriate links.

As long as users’ content is on OHM, we really need to be able to log in. Any chance this issue can be fixed? AFIK it hasn’t been broken long, so maybe easy to fix? I don’t know, I’m not a web guy…
A couple of questions:
  • What is the timeline for getting the OF system up? Right now, “Resources” only has one category, ”Example”.
  • I assume more categories will be added similar to OHM?
  • How long until all the stuff from OHM is imported to OF?
My reason for all this is I have a new addon I am waiting to release, and I just want to know what is going on, and when.

Timescales akin to "the end of this week" would be appropriate.

All the same categories that exist in OHM now will exist here.

You should be able to see the ongoing tasks and the overall status on this Trello board;

Wow, that sounds like some waaay oversensitive code...
Well, yes but also no. The API platform is written in Rust, using a framework called Rocket, which was pretty new at the time and required a nightly build of the rust toolchain to compile it. That kind of bleeding edge development is fine while you're keeping pace with it, but since I haven't looked at it in a while the underlying platform has moved quite a long way ahead of where my code is at, and I took a shortcut that didn't pay off in order to get things done.

The preliminary work for the migration has now been completed, and as such we're ready to merge OHM into OF, which will take place in the maintenance window announced for Sunday night (see the notice). The forum will be closed just for data consistency as the import is effectively three large SQL queries, so I'd like to ensure we have exclusive access to the database at that time to avoid any concurrency issues.

The add-ons that we can map to an OF user will be owned directly by that user. This means that you'll have full control over the add-on once it's turned into a Resource here, including changing the description and releasing new versions, and so on.

Those add-ons we can't map to an OF user will be owned by a catch-all "Unknown OHM Addon Dev" user. In testing this accounted for a reasonable amount of add-ons, which isn't ideal, but is a facet of OHM having had its own distinct authentication system for much of its life. Those add-ons can be claimed by their author if the author so desires; we'll make a process for this to be done, so that content creators of older add-ons can provide updates and own their content.

The import is a compromise, and the resultant resource is passable, but does not take advantage of many of the improvements we can utilise by having the add-ons in the forum site directly. New, or updated add-ons, will be able to benefit fully from these improvements.

I'll produce some guidance on how to use the system at some point, but for the most part I hope it's pretty intuitive.

And to add to this; we’ve developed a little web service that will redirect old OHM links to the new resource location.
During the migration, a mapping is made between the old ID and the new URL, which the web service will use for redirection purposes.

OHM references in addons that are not yet updated will continue to work.
