      I got a mail

       

      "Hello intex,

      The site is down for maintenance.


      Is this something real or is it any kind of fishing (looks like). First time for something connected with FileMaker then.

            Do you have an account with FileMaker Today? They recently revamped their site too. It's probably related to that.

              filemakertoday.com (as noted in the WHOIS above) is not affiliated with FileMaker Inc.

               

              It's a (at least to me) known filemaker news aggregator site. Were you perhaps registered on filemakertoday.com?

               

              filemakerconnect.com must be a new venture, although I'm a bit confused as to the "The Original FileMaker Community" designation on their password protected homepage.

               

              Seems to be in bad form to release this right after a massive rollout update of technet to the new community site by filemaker. Just causes confusion.

                Hi to all,

                 

                thanks, I guess I was signed in to filemakertoday.com - this at least sounds somehow "known" to me, filemakerconnect wasn´t and just for a second I thought it might be something like iTunes Connect ...

                 

                 

                Martin

                 

                Happy New Year

                  FileMakerConnect is Joomla extension ( obviously renamed ). The site has been using it for a few years.  FileMaker Today also has a FileMaker forum that has been around since the late 90s.  Neither are new.

                   

                  I know they are in the process of upgrading their software. That is likely the reason for the email. Joomla gets a little silly with that stuff sometimes.
