Neet beta testers for ALA Connect Drupal 7 upgrade

Hi, WAC --

We've been working hard to upgrade ALA Connect from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7, and we're planning to launch the new software in a few weeks. The interface isn't different but we could use some help testing the new version for bugs, so please let me know if you're able to help with this.

Thanks!
Jenny

I'm interested in doing this! Also, should I talk to you if I noticed something strange and buggy while trying to create a discussion forum in ALA Connect with a different committee?

I'd be happy to help test it, too.

Thank you to the three folks who volunteered to help test Connect in Drupal 7. I'll send you login information this week.

Veronica, you can contact me for help with the discussion topic issue or post the question publicly in the Connect Help community if you think everyone would benefit from seeing the discussion.

I have been gone for a time period, so sorry to be so late in responding.  I would volunteer to test if I can get my Drupal quotient up to speed.  I feel like the village idiot volunteering to lead the quiz bowl but, I have a great talent for finding the broken (or is that breaking the unbroken).  Either way, I am willing to give it a shot.

Ha - BJ, you're exactly the kind of tester we need! :)

Watch your email,

Sorry I didn't catch this earlier.

In my brief banging away at the D7 version, I didn't break anything (which should be reassuring)

and I figured out the interface in a minute or two (once I actually read the little linky-words at the top of the default display it was easy)

I think I like the conference sessions blending into discussion-looking thingies... alot.

Yay for a calendar-looking calendar... would this calendar show my selected conference sessions as well and all the events put out by my groups?

That's what I have in the way of observations and questions :)

Thanks :)

I'll reply to Aaron's questions and note that David sent me a list of issues, but we're widening the beta test and giving away a Google Nexus tablet to the person who find the most bugs between now and Monday, February 25th. So far, David is in the lead. :)

Please help us publicize this!

Thanks,
Jenny
