Hello,

When I try to reach my account or message board by clicking 'My account' or 'Message board' in Boinc Manager on Linux, Firefox displays page address as below

http://mindmodeling.orghome.php/


http://mindmodeling.orgforum_index.php/


For some reason / is missing.

Regards

Hi Hal,

There's a file downloaded for each project when you join it. This contains the addresses that the browser will go to when the buttons are clicked.

The one for MindModelling is "/var/lib/boinc-client/account_mindmodelling.org.xml"

In the file, each link has a <name>, a <description> and a <url> You need to edit the <url> entry to include the '/'


Hi Brandon,

I assume the master file that is downloaded by Boinc from the project has the '/' missing.

Hello,

It hasn't been resolved. It can be solved as Woodles suggested, but it would be nice to have it sorted once for good.

Regards

As Woodles said:

You need to edit TWO XML files (which are in the BOINC folder on Windows and file name = "account_mindmodeling.org.xml" and "sched_reply_mindmodeling.org.xml") and then restart BOINC Manager. The changes are as follows:


<gui_url><name>Message boards</name>
<description>Correspond with other users on the MindModeling@Beta message boards</description>

<url>mindmodeling.org/forum_index.php</url></gui_url>

<gui_url><name>Your account</name>
<description>View your account information</description>

<url>mindmodeling.org/home.php</url></gui_url>

<gui_url><name>Your tasks</name>
<description>View the last week or so of computational work</description>

<url>mindmodeling.org/results.php?userid=xxxx</url></gui_url>

<ifteam>
<gui_url><name>Your team</name>
<description>View information about your team: xxxx</description>

<url>mindmodeling.org/team_display.php?teamid=xxxx</url></gui_url>


DON'T COPY the above as the xxxx's represent your own personal data - just see where the BOLD / are above - there are 4 of them !!

Hi Brandon,

I assume the master file that is downloaded by Boinc from the project has the '/' missing.


Correct - but if the MASTER file isn't tweaked by the project admins, it should be edited as above, as even doing a project reset might just result in the erroneous file being re-downloaded (if it hasn't been fixed by now).

Thanks Timbo,

Will work on this fix as soon as we have the time. Possibly next week.

Happy Holidays!

Best,

I have just signed up for this project via Boinc. I realize that it says 'Beta' but even this is flawed as it generates faulty links:

mindmodeling.orgaccount_finish.php
mindmodeling.orgresults.php
