1/ Create your site with UI, and export it as an extension
If you are not comfortable with xml configuration files, this post is for you. It describes the add-on “Configuration Extension Generator,” which allows you to create your entire site in the UI (pages, navigation, content, etc.) and, when you are finished, to export it as an extension, ready to deploy in another instance.
2/ How To configure Office and the eXo Platform to view documents
One of our members, Dan James, had some issues using Office and JODConverter to see previsualizations of documents in eXo. He managed to resolve these issues and decided to share his experience in a complete how-to.
3/ Use eXo with exotic alphabets
In this post, one of our members was trying to upload documents in Chinese in eXo. He had some encoding problems and asked for help on the forum. Our team helped him to resolve his problem and to get eXo working with Chinese characters.
