BMLT Root Server

If you need to update your current key you will need to modify the auto-config.inc.php file that is in the root of your BMLT Server install.

It is suggested to use this feature if a meeting is temporarily closed. If a meeting is unpublished the meeting will not display on your online meeting listings and if you use bread to provide current time meeting directories in PDF.

If you make a change and need to see what the last 5 changes were you can see the previous data.

You could use that as extra directions to the meeting. Ex; 3rd room on the left, second floor or use the back entrance.

If you select the location map on the location tab  you can move the location pin on the map so that it displays properly on a google map.

You can email lori@na.org and ask for one.
