Apologies for the short notice here. Our previously planned February meetup fell through and rather than totally cancel, we're going to have some fun and help the Joomla! Project at the same time.
The long, long awaited new router is being included in Joomla 3.7 and it needs to be tested. Not only that but we need to know how it works.
Why is the new router cool? Because it can remove all those ItemIDs from your URLs (said in it's most simplistic form).
Brian Teeman has put together a very nice testing tutorial and we will do it together on Wednesday night. Here's how it will work:
Your job will be to do steps 1 and 2 BEFORE the meetup on Wednesday night.
Step 1, create a dev site.
Step 2, test all your links and make sure they work. Use a link checker to verify this.
We will do the rest of the steps together during the meetup on our own dev sites.
This is an online meetup only so I suspect we won't do a lot of screen sharing since we'll be on our own monitors doing the work. GoToMeeting will mainly be a conference bridge with periodic screen sharing.
We all need to know how this works. We all need to understand the risks in doing this on a live site. We all need to test it. So come and let's do it together!
