[GeoNode-devel] Customize GeoNode

I have attempted the instructions you referenced and they are not resulting
in a workable GeoNode. Perhaps the documentation has not been fully updated
to work with the GeoNode 2.6.3 version. There seem to be a few variations of
those docs and all have failed for me when attempting to use GeoNode 2.6.3. 


After a bit of trial and error I was successful using the more simplified
approach outlined on the geonode-project page (
https://github.com/GeoNode/geonode-project/ ).


My steps were this.


Install geonode 2.6.3 with:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:geonode/stable

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install geonode


Create a new template based on the geonode example project.:

$ django-admin startproject my_geonode

$ sudo pip install -e my_geonode

(Ignored the local_settings.py usage as it is not required)

$ cp /path/to/my_geonode/my_geonode/wsgi.py /var/www/geonode/wsgi/wsgi.py

Edit the file /etc/apache2/sites-available/geonode as per instructions

$ sudo service apache2 restart

Edit the templates in my_geonode/templates

$ python manage.py collectstatic

The workshop done at last foss4g probably can help you as it covers
customization extensively. The right place in the documentation is
tml?#customize-the-look-and-feel though.


Hope this helps

I am new to this list so these questions may have been asked already.


I can install GeoNode 2.6.3 using the instructions given in the Developers
Workshop, although there are a few errors in the instructions. I then wish
to customize the look. The instructions in the workshop do not seem to work
and are very different to the instructions on the geonode-project page. It's
all a bit confusing. 


The workshop manual contains this "disable_local_repo.sh". This does not
exist and there seems to be no reference to it anywhere else.


But before I start posting all the errors I get I was hoping there might a
working process that I have not seen yet.
