Bug #4404 (Active): Images: change title without changing filename

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2015-05-21 18:43

It would be very useful to be able to change the title of an image without changing the filename. That would allow for the filename to remain constant even if the title needs to be changed.

Bug #4403 (Active): Upload date being confused with Update Date

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2015-05-21 16:41

It appears that images I uploaded over a year ago are being treated as having been uploaded today. I updated these images today (2015-05-21), but the upload date was over a year ago. Screenshot attached.

Bug #4402 (Active): Slickgrid: sort by field

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2015-05-21 16:25

I seem to remember at some point in the past (at least for some views) there was an option to sort by field in addition to the filter function. I don't have that capacity in the image slickgrid. Thanks.

Bug #4400 (Active): Hanging indentation

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2015-05-21 11:46

Is is possible to add a function tab to the text box for hanging indentation, i.e. when a line spills onto the following it will be indented below the first line? Or perhaps enter preformatted text that has hanging-indented entries (not preferred)?

Bug #4398 (Active): ntkissue with media gallery

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2015-05-19 18:03

One of my media galleries (Tramp ants by Alex Wild) is only showing one image in the gallery. However, many other images are coded as belonging to this gallery. Screenshots attached.

Bug #4397 (Active): missing 'add new comment' link for forum

Scratchpads issue queue - Sun, 2015-05-17 01:37

I am unable to make a link for 'add new comment' appear on any forum page - I hope I haven't missed something obvious. In my persistence to make it work I seem to have merely created excess forum pages for which there is no intuitive means for deletion. Thanks for your help.

Bug #4396 (Active): How to upload ZIP files onto Scratchpad

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2015-05-15 22:37

I'd like to insert a ZIP file onto a page on Antkey.org that users can download. Is this possible? Thanks.

Bug #4395 (Active): Terms resurrected

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2015-05-15 01:28

Three terms recently appeared on our site; they appeared orphan terms and were placed in the same place in the taxonomy hierarchy as our highest-ranked term. The term names are ones we replaced a little while back (by editing the Term name field in an Excel Import). However, these names seem to have been re-created, and assigned Scratchpads-generated GUIDs. I have not yet deleted the terms (although I realize this is easy to do). But I wanted to point this out in hopes of avoiding this issue in the future; I do not think we did anything to spur this regeneration, but thought the Scratchpads team would better be able to diagnose the problem. The three new terms are:

Bembidion "Cooper's"
Bembidion "Darlington's"
Bembidion "SierraStar"

Bug #4394 (Active): Ability to change the title of a site

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2015-05-13 15:23

I was wondering if it is at all possible for you to change the url of a specific Scratchpad?

Bug #4393 (Active): Taxonomy import not updating by GUID

Scratchpads issue queue - Mon, 2015-05-04 18:12

Our taxonomy updates are not working as we expect them to. The hierarchy in the attached Excel file (as dictated by GUID and Parent GUID fields) is not correctly attached to the term names in the Excel file. The hierarchy itself looks correct (correct number of child terms), but the term names are incorrect. Also, the highest term in our taxonomy, 'Bembidiina' is assigned a new, Scratchpads-generated GUID instead of using the GUID we provide.

Bug #4392 (Active): Is it possible to display an external image without to upload it?

Scratchpads issue queue - Mon, 2015-05-04 14:52

Dear Team,

For now, I need to upload an image on the site before to insert it at the right place on a page.

I wondered if it could be possible on a taxon page (in the description field, e.g.) to show there an image that have not been uploaded in the media library of the site (but this image is accessible through internet)? The image exist on a other server and should be displayed at its right place through a specific tag (which allow the sizing of the original image to the desired size for the site + the link where the original image could be found).
This idea is to manage images(graphics) that could be modified regularly with a statistical tools (each month, for example).
When several hundred of images need to be changed on the site each months, may be it could be more easy to have just a fixed point that allow the displaying of the new external image, in place of delete the old one and upload the new ones.

What did you think about this question?

Best wishes

Bug #4390 (Active): Display problem for specimens

Scratchpads issue queue - Sun, 2015-05-03 10:24

Dear all,

I am sorry but the specimens table under specimen tab (main menu) and the specimen tab (under the taxon pages) have once again the problem I reported previously. The columns shows only one or two fields at maximum. This arrive now also on my 2 home computers and not only the office computer...
I have cleared the cache also but without recovering the all columns display :-(

Please could you fix it again? Could you suggest me why this happens and how to avoid it in future?

On my side, I can't solve this issue. Each time I select several columns to be displayed, they disapear as soon as I thick the list on an other tab (to show other columns).

Thank you for your help!!

Bug #4389 (Active): Catalogue number and collection code not imported correctly

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2015-05-01 21:34

Using the excel file import (attached), values in the Catalogue number field are not imported. Instead, the value in the file under in the Institution code column is used to populate the Catalogue number field on Scratchpads. Additionally, sometimes a date is used to populate the Collection code field. Any help is appreciated.

Bug #4388 (Active): Elevation values improperly imported to County field in Locality import

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2015-05-01 21:04

Using the Excel file import, the values in Maximum elevation and Minimum elevation fields were not populated from the Excel file (attached). One of these values ended up in the County column. Granted the Excel file does not include all the columns as the template file, but I thought it was the column headers, not the column position that mattered for imports...

Bug #4387 (Active): The year "2015" missing from the bibliography under "show more"

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2015-05-01 08:50

If you click onto the louse bibliography (http://phthiraptera.info/biblio) and then click "Show more" under the Publication Year facet, the year "2015" is missing. If this just an indexing problem and can you fix it, as there are definitly papers for 2015 in the bibliography (e.g. http://phthiraptera.info/node/68884).

Bug #4386 (Active): Addition of Access Database (.accdb) to permitted file extensions

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2015-04-30 15:44

Currently, Access Databases are not on the list of permitted extensions allowed for upload to Scratchpads. Is it possible to add the .accdb extension to the list of permitted uploads - we use Access to create herbarium specimen labels, and would like to make this utility available to our collaborators.

Bug #4385 (Require Feedback): Table in a webform to enter data directly in a specimen/observation...

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2015-04-30 10:57

Hi all,

Actually, I would like to do a webform which will allow an authorized user to enter his observation data.
These would be entered in a table present in the Webform (one row per specimen/observation, with some columns corresponding to different fields already existing in the Specimens/Observation table) and directly imported into the overall picture Specimen/Observation.
I'm looking, but I do not see how use existing fields (in a table Specimen/Observation) into a Webform nor how to link the fields present in the webform to the Specimens/Observations table.

Currently I have created a webform that can send data using an attached file http://efi-eafe.myspecies.info/node/1712
But this implies that the site manager must upload itself in the site each time. This may become difficult to handle when he will have a lot of files from across everyday ...

Did you have any suggestions?
