Bug #4390 (Active): Display problem for specimens

Scratchpads issue queue - 3 hours 24 min ago

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?

Bug #4380 (Active): Problem in display columns of specimen/observation table for taxon page or sp...

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2015-04-28 08:07

Dear team,

I have started to customise the view table of specimens/observation. To do that I have added two new fields in the Specimen/Observation>Manage Fields
The field are: 'Field temperature' and 'ID verified by'
When editing each specimens/observation, I see well these 2 new empty fields. But they don't be displayed on the tab specimens (on taxon page).

As I can't see them under the table found in the tab specimens (on the taxon page) I think that it is because the view have not been modified. So I have added 2 new fields in the view 'Scratchpad specimen Observation page(Content)'
The fields are:
'Content: Field temperature (Field temperature)'
'Content: ID verified by (ID verified by)'
These fields are (and need) to be available for XML EXport, CSV export and Page.

But the problem is that now I have loss the original view (in the tabs of the table found under the specimens tabs) with several columns for each tabs (but one)
In this example I can see several columns under the tab Location, But I see only one column in the other tabs. If I use the popup list to tick the columns I wish under one tab, I loss those existing under the other tabs.

I have also try to revert the view but it doesn't work (I still have my two new fields + the problems in the display under Specimen tabs of the taxon page)

I have also the same problem of missing columns in the table under http://efi-eafe.myspecies.info/specimen_observation

Moreover, I don't know why but the collectors names is duplicate in its field. How may I change that easily (for the moment there is one collector by specimens records)?

Thank you for all your suggestion to solve this problems :-)
Best regards

Bug #4379 (Active): specimen/observation shows unstable link to main menu

Scratchpads issue queue - Sun, 2015-04-26 04:55

Recently I uploaded specimen data to my scratchpad. At main menu, specimen was not linked. So I changed display settings of specimen/observation at contents contents type. At first time, I could find specimen menu, but it is soon disappeared. Please check this menu.

Bug #4378 (Active): Statistical and graphic capacities of Scratchpads

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2015-04-24 14:06

Dear Team,

I wonder if it could be possible to realize some basic stats of graphics using build-in fonctions/module in Scratchpad?

For example, from a table of specimens, to produce a pie chart (linked to a specific page or taxa level) or to calculate a % each taxa among the whole database.

If not, I presume that it is always possible to export the specimen database in XLS sheet, make some calculation outside, produce graphic outside and import this graphic as a image file on the desired page. Am I right?

Best wishes

Bug #4376 (Active): Is it possible to show localities on a map filtered on a date / time interval...

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2015-04-24 11:08

Dear team,

I am thinking about one topic.

I would like in a Scratchpad using the Specimens/Observation mode, to have a map showing only the localities where specimens have been found/observed at a moment or during an interval of time (one or several selected months/period for example).
Is it possible to make such filtering on observation data before to use the result for the display on a map?

If so, please could you suggest me how to realize such filtering?

Thank you for your help.

Feature #4375 (Active): Create local Catalogue of Life service

Bug #4374 (Active): Species page

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2015-04-17 12:36

The Mosquito Taxonomic Inventory does not utilize the machine format for taxon pages. In the case of pages for species to be listed in the side bar under Culicidae classification, it is desirable to use the machine format. A trial species page at http://mosquito-taxonomic-inventory.info/simpletaxonomy/term/8546 shows that the genus, subgenus and species names are not italicised, the subgenus name is not enclosed in parentheses and the authorship does not follow the species name. Request that changes be made that will allow the title of the species page to display the taxon names in italics, subgeneric names in parentheses (not italicised), and the author/date to follow the species name in smaller font size (also not italicised).

Bug #4373 (Completed - Requires Review): forum without the "add new comment function"

Thanks a lot

Bug #4372 (Active): unable to import a biological classification

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2015-04-16 14:00

Apologies if you are receiving this issue a second time. Last time when I tried to send it wanted me to log in again but wouldn't accept my details, then vanished.

I am trying to import a biological classification from EOL so I can get something ready for the group. I get the following message:
'The EOL classification service (http://services.eol.org/lifedesk/service.php) does not appear to be running. Please try again later.'
I get the same message if I try the GBIF option and have been trying for a couple of weeks, icluding deleting the page and creating a new one in case I had introduced a bug somehow.

I searched your help pages but found no clue for solving this

I appreciate any help you may offer - or a help link that I have missed.

Feature #4370 (Active): "Media (URL)" import mapping could use remote_stream_wrapper

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2015-04-10 13:08

The "Media (URL)" field could create images that reference remote files, rather than downloading them locally. Possibly investigate making this change.

Bug #4369 (Active): "Media URL" header in Excel template suggests the field is required

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2015-04-10 12:48

The "Media URL" header (and possibly others) appears in red which suggests it is required, when actually it is not.

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2015-04-08 11:13

If an image is associated with a private group, and has also been moved to the private folder, it is excluded from the media gallery page. It should instead be included if the user viewing the gallery has permission to view the image.

Bug #4366 (Active): Include taxonomic name GUID in taxon description importer file?

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2015-04-08 00:11

The Excel file with taxon descriptions includes a Taxonomic name (GUID) field, but no values are included in that field (the field Taxonomic name (Name) does contain information though). Is it possible to fill in the taxonomic name guid field - we would like to use this as a source of information and would like to avoid having to search through all the term names to identify the corresponding term in the taxonomy import file.
