Thanks in advance


A very obvious and simple thing is not there: Can't find the "dashboard" link.

I am very new here but feel stupid. Just need to add the task and can't see the Dashboard link. How is this possible?


port 8080 change procedure not working

Cyril Mhone 5 years ago updated by Nguyen 5 years ago 12
I followed the Installation instruction to "edit and change variable MYCOLLAB_PORT in script mycollab.bat (on Windows)... and restart server", which I did, setting port number to 8082 but MyCollab still fails to start with the following message and errors:

It seems this is the first time you run MyCollab. For complete installation, you
must open the browser and type address http://localhost:8080 and complete the s
teps to install MyCollab.

I already have Plone installed on the same machine, with Python using port 8080 and I can't stop/uninstall or change port for that.

Is it a must that for the first-time run, MyCollab has to use port 8080?

Please advise how to proceed.

I use MyCollab from few days, it works, is simple and has a good UI.

I've some request to the dev group.
1) Don't you think will be better to have a drill down system to navigate into the tasks ?
2) Could be better to assign a group of tast to a phase with a drag and drop system or with the use of a check box.These functionalities could be integrated in all the user interface.


Can not connect to my Dropbox

Adam Dew 5 years ago updated 5 years ago 6
It seems the Dropbox connectivity is failed. I tried two times to link MyCollab with my Dropbox but it fails. I am using the latest Chrome version.

Thank you

New installation does not serve javascript to the browser

Cloned the repo., built it apparently without any errors, then ran:

   $ mycollab-app-community/target/staging/bin/

it prints a lot of `INFO` logging but when I browse (on the same machine) to http://localhost:8080 it logs:

   16:39:03,214 INFO com.vaadin.server.VaadinServlet:825 - Requested resource [/VAADIN/widgetsets/com.mycollab.widgetset.MyCollabWidgetSet/2F3BD702BB87447504278ED3BED13696.cache.js] not found from filesystem or through class loader. Add widgetset and/or theme JAR to your classpath or add files to WebContent/VAADIN folder.

and the browser page shows a 'spinning petals' waiting indicator but nothing else.

Any ideas?

If I enter the external URL in the configuration, it gives me an error that port is in use, if I enter, then it only runs locally and doesn't work from outside the server!!
