Seth got me started with Conversant on Radio today. Right now, I have a site at http://radio.hmc.psu.edu/anesthesiology/anesthesiology/. Before I use the Wizard to create additional conversations, I'd like to make this zoneId and convId the top level domain, so that one could get there with just: http://radio.hmc.psu.edu:8080/ (at least until I get port forwarding figured out). Other posts on the subject by Jim Roepcke seem geared toward a Frontier-based install. How can I do it with a Radio/Conversant install?

Run this in QuickScript:

local ( zoneId = "anesthesiology" ); local ( convId = zoneId ); ConversantData.zones.default = zoneId; Conversant.zones.getWebsitesTable( zoneId )^.default = convId

Then you should be be able to use the shorter URL you mentioned.

Did as you indicated. Now I get the Radio Userland desktop website page and can't seem to reach Conversant at all.

----

Manually deleted ConversantData.zones.default and restarted Radio. I can reach Conversant again.

It sounds like Conversant's responder isn't working any more for you.

Do you still have an entry at user.webserver.responders.conversant?

I found some code in builtins.radio that would set
user.webserver.responders.default, it was messing me up.

Actually, I went to quite a bit of trouble to disable all the polling
and crazy P2P stuff that Radio wants to do.

That's a good point... if you're running Radio strictly for Conversant (which I think is a good idea, personally, since it doesn't make sense to run a desktop application and a server application at the same time), you should turn every Radio feature off, entirely, completely. Do that via the standard radio preferences pages.

(Of course, to get to the Radio preferences pages, you have to disable Conversant's responder first.)

Perhaps we should add a preference in Conversant to shut off all of Radio's extra "stuff". We could make that an install option, too.

I think turning stuff in Radio off (or even providing the option) makes good sense. That we you know what state Radio is in when it's running Conversant instead of having to go back and find everything as an afterthought.

Revisiting an issue of several weeks ago.....

The way Conversant currently sets up the first site, its at http://[ip]:8080/myFirstSite, which is an improvement from http://[ip]:8080/myFirstSite/myFirstSite

A new install may want to have one top level site (okay, I want to have one top level site--doctors are terrible at remembering url's), so that if a user types http://[ip]:8080/ they get the zone/conversation at http://[ip]:8080/myFirstSite. Worth figuring out and including as a "HowTo"?
