Wanting to contribute to the project

Dec 19, 2012 at 8:36 AM

I love what you have done so far, it works great. I was thinking of possible making plugins for more sites to start with.  Its been a while since I have done some coding but I hope I will still be able to contribute.

I tried downloading the source and opening it in Visual Studio 2010, but when i try to build it gives me errors and on opening it asks me to log into a server.

what exactly do i need to be able to work with this. Im New to VS too, im use to borland and VB4.

 

any help would be appreciated.

Hi Jade,

CodePlex offers Team Foundation Servers(TFS) which is what I use for this project. You should not need to login to open the Project Solution(.sln) in VS. You should use Microsoft Visual Studio 2010(and up) C# Express or one of the professional versions. To get started after you get the project open I recommend looking at the current plugins.

Hope this helps and feel free to ask more questions.

Hi ProbCaboose,

I've been wanting to contribute to this project. I was able to run the source code with no problem. But somehow, most of the time, my download stuck at 0%. Do I have to tweak some settings in my environment?

Hi spekitam,

Are you trying to update previously downloaded MIZAs? or are you trying to download new ones. Make sure the plugins are in the plugins folder in either of the Debug/Release folder.

Both Debug/Release folder have their plugin. I think the problem is at the progress bar. Because even though the progress bar stays at 0%, but when I close and reopen back the application, somehow the chapter has been downloaded. Weird since I haven't change a single code yet. Maybe I should dig in your code more deeply.

Nice app by the way.
