Collaboration with Elog

Elog is a great program used for collaboration in a LAN or WAN environment. Its very simple to use and easily customizable. This program is ideal for sharing notes or analyzing data and ensuring everyone else knows what is going on. There is an email function as well and the ability to export and import notes/data if desired. The program can be downloaded here: Below are some of the things I did for customization

Alter the look of the program, it’s a .css written in html — /usr/local/elog/themes/default/default.css

Removed the word ‘demo’ from the URL and from the page and changed it to something else — /usr/local/elog/elogd.cfg

Add/adjust the fields of the form — config option listed on the menu bar of the program

Log transcript — /usr/local/elog/logbooks

After you adjust any of these, you are going to restart the elogd service and reload apache.
