Vote to help Kiwi Volunteer and Community Organizations.

TechTime Blog Theme is a product by a small Kiwi business called TechTime Initiative Group - a busy little company-that-can, people in perpetual motion, robots who never sleep, with an endless cycle of ideas turning into initiatives turning into innovation.

Besides working with local and overseas customers for the last 5 years, we have been involved with local community and volunteer-run organizations. We have seen these work through their day to day routine and have noticed several common and relatively simple problems that we think can be solved better with the use of some intelligent software.

This year Ed Letifov, one of the founders, have applied for AMP "Do You Thing!" Scholarship in the Business/Entrepreneurial category for Wellington/Manawatu region hoping to secure funding for this cause.

If Ed gets the scholarship he plans to devote his time to making a software package that will genuinely simplify the everyday tasks for volunteer-driven and community-driven non-for-profit organizations.

Many components of the final solution have already been developed and tested with our existing non-profit and commercial customers. The final stretch of bringing these together and packaging as an intuitive product remains.

The ultimate goal is to make it affordable and, while funding allows, distribute to non-profits at no charge at all.

AMP has a panel of judges that will select the finalists by October 2010.

In parallel the People's Choice Award runs up until 31st of July 2010.

If you think it is a worthy goal, you can help Ed by casting your vote here:

If you are interested in this development for your own organization or business or want to know more feel free to get in contact.

  4. Added the server side redirect to news on home page access (available Confluence 2.8+)

Blog Theme Release 0.8.22
By Ed Letifov
Labels: plugin, best

After a period of silence we have returned to active development with this theme plugin.
A new version 0.8.22 has just been released with several improvements including more flexibility with the look of the (right) side panel, RSS feeds, fixes for the case when Confluence is not installed as root web-application.

We are planning to follow this up with a release targeting the latest version of Confluence and localization to make it easier to use the theme internationally. Any other suggestions for improvements are greatly appreciated.

If you are still (hopefully) interested in TechTime Blog Theme please review the new version and send us feedback via our Tracker.

Besides, if you have some idea/need for a plugin for your Confluence instance - we'd like to hear it and might be capable of bringing it to life.

Recent changes

  1. Added link to Dashboard to the top (user) menu for authenticated users
  2. Fixed numerous places where links used to break in the case when Confluence was deployed not as a root web application.

  4. Brought auto-discovery RSS links picked up by browsers automatically in line with the Page Options pane. They now include space name in the title. They are now Anonymous for Anonymous users, and use Basic HTTP Authentication for authenticated ones leaving it up to Confluence to filter the data.
