The Parse Project

I’ve got a secret.  No matter what anyone says, mages like to top the parse.  That’s why you make a wizard, warlock, conjuror or necro.  And scouts do as well.  Don’t let those Rangers fool you….

So, I’ve been trying for a long time to be able to post parses on the site.  Pretty much the only way I could get it to work reasonably cool looking was to set up Joomla and install the ACT Parser.

I’ve been trying for a while with little success – until this weekend.  First – I downgraded Joomla to 2.5.  Probably should have gone all the way to 1.7.  But what’s done is done.  Then I was able to install the ACT Parser.  I also had to download the MySQL ODBC 3.51 driver – as the most current was no bueno.  After that it was just a matter of finding a decent theme and getting it all to display.  Now I’m not that great with Joomla, as I’ve only used it a little bit – but I think I have it working ok.  Take a look – The Parse Project.  I hope to be able to some how embed the parses into a blog post – but I’m not holding my breath.  I’ll be happy to just link to one.
