Please keep conversations within relevant locations inside the site. For example, if you are asking a question about setting up Tigase XMPP Server, you would post your question on the forums under Installation and Maintenance. If you wish to report a bug that arises while using tigase HTTP API, you would make a new bug ticket on the HTTP API project page. If you are a customer and have issues relating to extensions or custom components, please make posts or tickets in your company project section. A list of common pages is listed below.
Please remember that posts on our Forums will be answered when one of our team can address them. We offer the forums as a free service to Tigase users, however we can make no guarantees.
Please search forums or tickets to see if your issue or question has been made to avoid duplication.
DO NOT duplicate issues from the forums to tickets unless asked to do so. They will be rejected, and your account may be disabled if you abuse this rule.
Be courteous and respectful of all posters. Tigase is an open source project and as such is the effort of many people, not just those of the Tigase Team. The person who is assisting you may have written the code you are having problems with!
Close issues that are no longer relevant. If an issue has been resolved, or has been assigned back to you for feedback, please test and close it if it is fixed. Please do not leave tickets open for extended periods of time.
If working with tickets, please use appropriate status when making them, here is a general breakdown:
