comment QGIS: field calculator is not working with shapefile created manually
I had a problem yesterday that QGIS 2.2 sometimes wouldn't display any changes in the attribute table until you saved the file and resorted any column. It just kept showing the old values until then. Maybe this is the case for you, too?

You could always use the QGIS processing toolbox and apply v.clean.snap directly to your shapefile.

comment More than one WMS layer in QGIS
Combining different WMS in one project shouldn't be a problem, I just tested this in QGIS 2.2.0. But they need to share a common projection (you might have to choose the correct one manually from the list)

Don't worry, I also totally missed this just a few weeks ago... :)

comment IE8 Openlayers load thousands objects problem
I don't have time for an elaborate answer right now, but you might be interested how I solved a similar problem (visualization of 40k polygons): gis.stackexchange.com/questions/9864/…

comment IE8 Openlayers load thousands objects problem
Do you need vectors? Otherwise you could create a tiled map overlay instead. Or you could switch from JSON to a proper WFS (this would help to reduce the number of loaded features). Loading that many vector objects from JSON will always create performance problems on slower machines or browsers...

comment How can I filling ring in QGIS 2.2?
It might be useful for future analysis and styling purposes to have your park boundaries and buildings on separate layers.

Did you find a way to make QGIS export the existing user profile to the new location specified above?

comment How can I centralize QGIS connections for multiple QGIS installations
Eh, ignore the last part about exporting the WMS server list - totally missed the "save" button... also: --optionspath instead of --settingspath as you just wrote on your blog will create a new folder and a QGIS2.ini file, but again use default values instead of my own ones.

comment How can I centralize QGIS connections for multiple QGIS installations
Not nagging here, but may this helps you somehow. Are these optional switches documented somewhere? I would love to use this to sync my QGIS profiles at work and at home. At bit off-topic: where can I find the list of saved WMS servers in QGIS 1.8? They didn't get migrated when I upgraded to QGIS 2.0, and I'd love to avoid having to copy each string manually...

comment How can I centralize QGIS connections for multiple QGIS installations
Just tried this custom shortcut: C:\OSGeo\bin\qgis.bat --configpath "C:\OSGeo\usrdata\config" --settingspath "C:\OSGeo\usrdata\settings". I did not manually create the folders \settings and \config before. QGIS will create \config on launch, but as written above with a default profile. --settingspath doesn't work at all - no folder \settings, and again the error messages "The layer C:\OSGeo\bin\--settingspath is not a valid layer and can not be added to the map" as well as "The layer C:\OSGeo\usrdata\settings is not a valid layer and can not be added to the map".

comment How can I centralize QGIS connections for multiple QGIS installations
I just tried --settingspath and --optionspath with QGIS 2.0 (osgeo4w) on Win 7, but I think I'm doing something wrong here. Just adding --optionspath "C:\new\user\folder" kind of works, but QGIS will create a new default profile at the designated folder instead of migrating mine. Adding --settingspath "C:\new\user\folder" won't do anything and causes these error messages: "The layer Z:\OSGeo\bin\--settingspath is not a valid layer and can not be added to the map" and "The layer C:\new\user\folder\ is not a valid layer and can not be added to the map".

Plugins like e.g. MMQGIS makes this a quickand painless task.
