Code to escape WordPress strings for Google Analytics. :

A Quick Template Tag to create Google Analytics Event Tracking on links. Built on behalf of CFO Publishing.

Etherpad Lite AMI – alpha setup for folks interested in Participad

Etherpad Lite AMI – alpha setup for folks interested in Participad:

Working on setting up an AMI for people to run Etherpad Lite. This one is built using the BitNami node.js install. 

Right now, this is the most basic possible install. All that’s been done is everything has been installed and the correct ports open. You still have to start it from the command line and no configuration or security options have been enabled. However, I figure it is a good start. 

If you pop this up and have a good configuration set up, pass it along by sharing your AMI as well. 

Once running, the Etherpad Lite install is available from yourAMIurl:9001/.

This set up will one day be a lot easier to use and is currently still quite technical, but is, at least, less technical to set up than before and is a great alternative for those who want to run Participad, but don’t have the command line access needed to set up Etherpad Lite on a shared server. 

Stand by for more updates on this AMI, with better configuration.
