    Recently, Linden Lab changed the way they create names for new avatars for Second Life. Now they allow you to create an avatar with a first name-only, whereas in the past they used to allow you to choose from a list of pre-defined last names. You still do have a last name, but it is actually "Resident."

    For SLiteChat, this causes a problem for people who are used to logging in via first name only. For example, a new avatar named Angel123 cannot log into SLiteChat because SLiteChat expects a last name in addition to a first name. So, if Angel123 wants to log in using SLiteChat, she ...

    MO Glossary moduleWe are glad to let you know that we just made an update to the MO Glossary module, a module extension for Drupal 6.x.

    This update brings better support to anchors by offering you five different anchor classes and five different filters (i.e. you can change the look and feel of each anchor based on some criteria that fits your website and group your glossary terms in five different taxonomies!) Also, the anchor can be made to point to one of three different destinations:

    • The Drupal Core Term Page;
      This is the default for an anchor
    • The Taxonomy VTN Term Page;

    Hi all,

    With the release of Linden Lab's Viewer 2, an issue has cropped up for users of SLiteChat. Presently, SLiteChat does not attempt to rez your avatar in-world. With pre-2.0 viewers, this was never an issue (the AV just appears as a ghosty-blob). However, Viewer 2.0 handles in-world rendering a little differently than pre-viewer 2 and other viewers like Snowglobe and Emerald. This results in a fully dressed AV that has the default "Ruth" body (i.e. if you have a male avatar, it will appear as female, hovering in the air, to users of Viewer 2 who try to look at you).

    For those SLiteChat users who are experiencing the following error message:

    Cannot log in! Reason: Login failure: data, First name parameter must be alphanumeric.

    If you feel this is an error, please contact

    support@secondlife.com.

    If you see this error message, it is because you have a leading space in your Second Life name in the log in dialog. Just delete the space and you should be able to log in normally:

    The logo of MO Auto add terms for Drupal by Made to Order Software Corp.We just made a few fixes to our module MO Auto add terms. We have now released version 1.9. This module automatically updates your Drupal pages with terms from your taxonomies making it a lot easier to manage a large index on all your pages.

    As defined by Drupal conventions, the module should not generate any E_NOTICE errors. This version has most, if not all of them, fixed.

    In order to keep our Drupal installation secure, we quickly updated to version 6.15.

    As far as we know, none of the security issues fixed by Drupal 6.15 would affect any one of our existing customers. Yet, we prefer to be at the top security wise and made the change very quickly, as usual. If you have any question or encounter any problem, let us know. This change was very smooth and did not require any database updates.

    I also wanted to mentioned the arrival of our new Web 2.0 hosting system. We are still working on it, but very soon you will be able to jump on the bandwagon and get a ...
