Dashboard - 3rd Column - $100



  • @Evgeny:

    Yes, before upgrade please uninstall the package. It removes everything it brought in and restores all the file it replaced.
    I think 2low4zero's question was 'why can't we put this package into official pfSense package repository?' rather than 'why did I have issues after upgrade?' -)

    Sure, I understood the question, but I wanted to answer for others that might have issues.  I don't have an answer to the package question, I thought you had commit access to the package repo.  Or do you mean getting this in the mainline pfsense repo?  If the latter, I think it's going to have to wait until after 2.0 is out.

  • It's not ready for mainline but I think perfect for packages.
    I do not have commit access and I do not want it as I am not that experienced with git and theoretically can screw up things. What would be nice is if somebody who has commit access would merge this package from my repo to main packages repo.
    Thanks.

    I can commit to the packages mainline on behalf of the creator. The only thing I ask is to only have to commit a final product.

    Then please commit. It is pretty much final, I've been running it for some time without any problems. Bounty starter has not claimed any issues except problems after upgrade. But I do not know how to resolve upgrade conflict, if files touched by the package are upgraded then you can't do anything about it. The only way to avoid this problems is to uninstall package, upgrade the system, install it again. In any case the package does not touch functionality, it only affects 'appearance'.

  • Thanks to tommyboy it is there!
    I appreciate your help in this matter.



  • Hey guys,

    I love the idea of a 3rd column. I gave the package a try but some widgets didn't format correctly. I tried IE8 and FF with the same results. Could be just me but I wanted to let you guys know in case others bring up the issue. Uninstall the package and my dashboard is back to normal. Thanks for creating this package tho!




  • Number of columns is calculated automatically. Your screen is not wide enough for 4 columns. Make it a bit smaller and you should end up with 3 columns and all widgets should look fine.
    Somehow I need to optimize this formula  :-\

    Thanks for the quick reply… That screen shot was from a 1680x1050 screen. I tried it on my 1920x1200 laptop display and the firewall log widget looks good but the gateway status still bleed over a little



  • Evgeny and Tommyboy,

    You two are my heroes.  Thank you for the package commit.

    Evgeny and I talked at length about upgrades and installing/de-installing the package while keeping up with the 2.0 snapshots and I knew what to expect there anyway.  From time to time I've had to manually pare down my config file because some left-over crud would cause intermittent resets, and I've had hardware issues a couple of times as well.  But as far as stability of the package goes, it's been flawless for me.  Good work, Evgeny.  Thanks again.

    As a general note about bounties and the bounty system; I paid Evgeny generously for his work, he has my thanks and gratitude (and a fair whack of my loose cash, total value = $300, he donated $100 of that to the pfSense general fund) although I know that he was also working for cheap relative to a real job.  But I was also willing to pay to play and give the results back to the community because I felt the community would find value in having more information at their fingertips on the dashboard.  I like the results and hopefully others will too.  I would also like to thank SuperMule and SimonCPU for their input and ideas.  I would like to think that the bounty system can work and be a positive force for development.  You guys made it work this time.  Thanks to everyone involved.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go grab the current snapshot then install a spiffy new package and take it for a test  drive.  I might recommend that you do the same.



  • Thanks to everyone involved for making a successful bounty project happen.  I'll move this to the completed bounties now as long as everyone involved approves.



  • I do not mind. Further discussion can go on in Packages section of this forum.
