Bug #4519 (Active): Can't get "Add new comment" to appear on blog articles

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2016-06-22 18:30

I maintain two Scratchpads. As far as I can tell I have comments set to "open" for the blogs on both, yet on africhthy.org the "Add new comment" link appears under each article, but does not show up on mormyrids.myspecies.info. Why?

Bug #4518 (Active): extra banner on species description block

Scratchpads issue queue - Mon, 2016-06-13 17:17

I can't figure out how to remove "PETROCEPHALUS LEO LAVOUE 2016" from above every taxon description on mormyrids.myspecies.info. No idea how I/we got it there in the first place. Please advise! Thanks!

Bug #4517 (Active): New vocabulary doesn't appear in the main menu

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2016-06-08 11:22

I have added a new vocabulary (and imported taxonomy from EOL) but it does not appear in the main menu. I can access the new vocabulary through Structure > Taxonomy so I am certain it has been created. Is there any way to make it appear in the main menu?
The previous vocabulary I added appeared automatically...

Bug #4516 (Require Feedback): quite urgent: error when saving modification to page: http://bebol....

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2016-05-27 16:20

dear Maintainer,
could you look at the following pages: http://bebol.myspecies.info/node/114 and http://bebol.myspecies.info/node/116.
Strange behavior of the site: updates cannot be saved, not same links when logged in or out, automatic redirections from node 116 to 114. Page 114 removed but still visible for unregistered users...
This is quite urgent because it is to organise a workshop next week...
Thank you very much for your help!

Bug #4515 (Active): Distribution maps

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2016-05-19 16:25

All of the maps have gone from the taxon Descriptions, to be replaced by an empty Western Europe map. There is a transient error message but it disappears before it can be read. The maps are a major element of my species pages and it would be nice to have them back. However, I gather that this is not likely to happen soon.

from some the data can't be viewed on the map page. Please check this problem.

Bug #4513 (Active): Species node inaccessible

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2016-05-17 16:52

Hello there
One of my collaborators added the species node Opegrapha prosodea to the FGBI website. It appears in the list of taxa on the left of the page, but clicking on it dumps you back to the genus page. I've tried various things including renaming the page (when it appears correctly but disappears again when edited back to the original name), and adding a duplicate node and deleting the first one, but none of these actions has solved the problem.

Any help much appreciated as always

Bug #4506 (Active): Cannot upload files in both phthiraptera.info and bio.acousti.ca

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2016-03-24 12:54


For the bio.acousti.ca scratchpad, when I tried to upload files an error message appeared. I go to 'Source' - select media, in the pop-up box, I choose file, then after choosen file, i upload, an error message e.g. The file 20160324111253.jpg could not be saved. An unknown error has occurred. The file in the Upload a new file field was unable to be uploaded. appears.

For the Phthiraptera.inf scratchpad, in the 'File attachment' I click on the select media, in the pop-up box, click +files and after selecting the file, I then click start-upload, once 100% appears green I then click ' Submit' then I select the file again, click submit, a message e.g. The specified file temporary://p1aekareosddoboh17em1ttu18md4.tmp could not be copied, because no file by that name exists. Please check that you supplied the correct filename appears.

I have used both Safari and Google Chrome browsers and both have these problem. Also the uploading is temperamental


Bug #4505 (Active): multiple images upload for a specimen

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2016-03-22 19:21

I have already have several species in the DB at scratchpads. Now, I want to upload several images to one of those specimens. If I edit the specimen entry and want to upload images, I get to the drag and drop option, which is fine. Now, I added several images, but in the library, I had to sort them according to e.g. the filename. After this sorting, I could not link more than one image to the specimen (was not possible to select more than one image in the library). Therefore, I had to link one images and then go back to the library and do the same. This should be changed to allow to select more than one image for adding to a specimen
