  1. Combining HTML files with a Django website

    Wondering how to host and serve lots of old HTML files when I move most of this site to Django.

    On the “efficient” teaching and disciplinary methods used in some London secondary schools. Sounds grim.

    @paulrobertlloyd Thanks Paul, good to know that works!

    Very good. Ten years of permanent URLs for BBC programmes. Well done everyone! twitter.com/oddtype/status…

    @paulpod @SonyUK You should be able to get a repair or replacement from the seller, regardless of the warranty.

    @dracos I just noticed that looking through the Issues. Sounds promising, thank you :) I will have a poke when I next get the time…

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @dracos Oh, interesting… I’m using Whitenoise for the static assets, hadn’t noticed I could add other files. Think it’d be OK serving HTML?

    @benterrett @infovore Let me know your fax no and I’ll send it right over.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @infovore Maybe I’ll just delete it all and write any new blogs on Medium ha ha

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @infovore I’m not sure that’d work.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @infovore Yeah that does seem best. I was just relieved with my recent decision that paying for Heroku is better than administering a server :(

  • philgyford’s avatar

    I’m guessing correct answer is Option 5, but I really don’t want to set up servers any more. I’m hoping there’s an easier & better Option 6.

    Does anyone Django-y have any thoughts on how best to combine a load of legacy HTML files with a Django site…? gyford.com/phil/writing/2…

    It might not be a false alarm! FreeAgent forgot to update the only place in the UI that this change was apparent to anyone using it.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @freeagent The interface still says a level 8 Accountant can delete all data…

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Partially false alarm! If you want your accountant to add Journal Entries, or file VAT returns, they can still also delete ALL your data.

    Finally! community.freeagent.com/freeagent/topi… (After 7 years of complaints, your accountant no longer has permission to delete all your FreeAgent data.)
