Link spam in forum posts

Hey, I noticed someone posting random links at the end of their posts and took a quick look as to why someone would do something like that. It seems FreeCAD's forum software doesn't set rel="nofollow" on outgoing links. I think it should to reduce the incentive for spammers to add links to their pos...

Re: SUGGESTION: inform of fundamental limitations on the main page of freecadweb.org

As per this forum topic from 5 years ago already, the fundamental limitations are: lack of topological naming (this means that any addition or removal of components, e.g. of a sketch will result in references used by other sketches, etc. to go bananas) conflicting workbenches with similar/identical...

Debugging Python memory usage link

I came across an excellent post on howto debug memory usage in Python applications: https://rtpg.co/2020/10/12/pylint-usage.html (via: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=24754397). This made me think of a recent and interesting discussion on closing in on a memory leak between Python and C++ code:...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

Perhaps names must be valid Python identifiers due to how they are used internally?

I'm trying to follow https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Path_experimental to enable experimental features but end up with a hard crash when I attempt to create a new boolean value. In a new, empty document, with the Path workbench selected, I navgiate to Tools -> Edit parameters, locate the Preferences -> ...

Re: https on freecadweb.org sites?

https on freecadweb.org sites?

The lack of https support on the freecadweb.org sites is a bit awkward. Would you please consider implementing https on the forum aswell as the web site? That would help protect the privacy of visitors and keep their forum credentials (among other things) from being transmitted in plaintext over the...
