New User Image Gallery

We have implemented a image gallery for our users at the page now. It is a bit basic. Nothing to compare with pages like Deviantart. But it is fully functional.

The big thanks goes to MuxFolder, who was so kind to implement it.

Have fun with the new image gallery Smile

Windows Installers for Bforartists 0.9.2

We have now Windows Installers for Bforartists 0.9.2 available too.

Blender 2.79 is around the corner. So it was time to have a look that we provide not just zip files. The choice has fallen towards Advanced Installer as the installer Software solution. The developers were so kind to spend a free license for our open source project.

It can be that the translation is here and there a bit clumsy. We had to implement two custom strings, which are translated with Google Translate ...

Downtime because of https ssl certificate trouble

We had some trouble with the automatic ssl certificate renewing for our https connection. It's just valid for three months. Then you have to renew the certificate manually or automatically. Which as told failed. As a result the usual browsers, like Firefox and Chrome, has thrown an fat warning that the page is not secure anymore. And so the page was not to reach anymore. Nobody clicks at the add exception button when ff or chrome says the page is evil.

In fact the page was and is as secure as ever. It's the browser manufacturers that is the problem here. They block secure https pages without a valid third hand ssl certificate, like page owners that run out of a certificate duration for one day would be mafia killers then. Guess who is the mafia here.

Updated Manual chapter - 3.1.1 - 3D View by tools - Tool Shelf.pdf

I had forgotten a few chapters in the new manual part 3.1.1 - 3D View by tools - Tool Shelf. Which i have added now.

The "few" forgotten chapters, everything else besides Object Mode and Edit Mode,  turned out to be over 100 new pages with a ton of new shots. So no wonder that it took a while to finish it. The chapter has grown from 130 to 230 pages now.

The Bforartists manual is located here: https://bforartists.de/wiki/manual

New Manual chapter - 3.1.1 - 3D View by tools - Tool Shelf.pdf

We have a new manual chapter. 3.1.1 - 3D View by tools - Tool Shelf.pdf

https://bforartists.de/wiki/Manual

This chapter is the first big part of the manual rewrite. It brings more structure into the manual. Now you can search by tool for the Tool Shelf tools. It also adds quite a few things that are simply missing in the Blender manual. The descriptions of the Last Operator. Or how some tools works. And even the description of some tools at all. The Blender manual is incomplete. It misses Make Vertex Parent for example.

Google+ Bforartists Community created

I am normally no big friend of social medias. From a developer point of view it is a time eater. I prefer to spend my time with writing code or a tutorial instead. But on the other hand, we need the contact to the users, to you. And so we need social media.

I personally heavily dislike Facebook. And so i have chosen Google+ instead. The account can be found here : https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/110396041179840232221/communities/11312130...

I am still a bit lost with the account settings. So when you have an idea how to improve the Bforartists Community at Google+, then you are very welcome Smile
