Bug #3968 (Active): Cannot flag UK on Distribution map

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2014-02-26 14:53

Trying to indicate European distribution on the Google map under "Map" on Edit Taxon Description
Select "Region" - Selecting by country/subcountry (Level 4)
Click away on countries including "United Kingdom" (which actually selects GB - Northern Ireland has to be selected separately!). Map appears OK and as I want it.

View the page via Scathophagid checklist - select species - Whilst the other countries I selected are indicated, Britain is not shown as grey.

Try to edit the taxon description, go to map, select Britain, save - Britain is still not shown!

Bug #3962 (Active): Solanaceae source has lost new content

Scratchpads issue queue - Mon, 2014-02-24 09:49

Solanaceae source seems to have has lost all it's new content. Not sure as of when, but Sandy seemed to have a problem where old data was showing up on Feb 22. I had corrected a while ago. I had been asking her to look at something onthe 18th, so maybe it went wrong sometime between the 18th and the 20th?

Bug #3925 (Active): Cyperaceae - dwca

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2014-02-11 15:06


the darwin core archive of the cyperaceae has something wrong with it which causes the portal either not to harvest at all or to miss out information. Please have a look at the archive and find one of the lines starting with <br/>
These need to go with their respective record. The <br/> code comes from the authoring information of those records (example below). Please advise on this.

Feature #3920 (Active): Fixed author list for citations

Scratchpads issue queue - Mon, 2014-02-10 15:57

It would be good to specify a fixed string of authors for the citation feature for some projects.

Bug #3919 (Active): Search by vernacular name not working anymore?

Scratchpads issue queue - Mon, 2014-02-10 10:59

I am pretty sure it previously was possible to do a simple search using the vernacular names imported to our taxonomies. The search result would include a link to the relevant species page. Now it doesn’t work. Is it an option we can enable? Being able to search for a species by its vernacular name in English or Italian will be very important for our users.
Thank you

Task #3896 (Completed - Requires Review): Slickgrid: implement row level locking

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2014-02-06 11:14

At the moment every time a cell is edited the user has to wait for the whole slickgrid to reload before editing more data. This makes quick editing impossible, so we need to implement row-level locking and updating of data.

Feature #3892 (Completed - Requires Review): Make terms revisionable

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2014-02-05 16:27

Improvements to the taxonomy editor should include the revisioning of terms. This will allow us to easily implement an "undo" feature in the editor, and will also provide other enhancements.

Bug #3890 (Active): High priority: species page issue

Scratchpads issue queue - Mon, 2014-02-03 11:59

A list of all type specimens included on the antkey site is being displayed on the overview section of each species page. Issues like this that affect the species pages really take credibility away from Scratchpads and are personally embarrassing when I am presenting the site to colleagues and funders.


Bug #3883 (Active): Biblio node update error

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2014-01-30 11:32

When importing an excel spreadsheet update of biblio nodes in the Liliaceae Scratchpads, I received this error. I do not know why this has occurred.

Bug #3882 (Active): Ajax errors when saving taxonomies

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2014-01-29 12:10

An ajax error (HTTP result code:500) is returned when saving taxonomies in the site.
The maintainer reports:

I have recently set up a site (surreybackgarden.myspecies.info), and at first it worked fine, but now everything I try to do results in some sort of error
"The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later"
"An AJAX HTTP error occurred. HTTP Result Code: 500"


I am sometimes unable to access the site, sometimes unable to import taxonomy information from EOL, unable to edit the existing taxonomy without errors.

It's making the site unusable. I tried to create a New Issue, without success as I don't have a log-in.

Please can you help? I'm on the point of giving up and creating my own site in HTML!!

Bug #3880 (Active): taxon descriptions missing title

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2014-01-28 16:47

a number of taxon descriptions in the Scilloideae scratchpad are missing a title. They seem to all have been part of the same import run on the 2013-09-25 22:10.

I need to see the title in order to select and execute an update.

Bug #3873 (Active): Different maps and images when logged in or out

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2014-01-24 08:57

I have just been trying to update the map for Macroglossum bombylans. When I an logged in, the correct map shows, which is the one with, for example, Shandong shown as a separate area. This appear under both Overview and Descriptions tabs as desired. However, when I log out, the old, pre-edited map appears on the Overview tab and something entirely different appears under Descriptions. I have tried clearing the cache and closing and reopening my Browser (latest Firefox) but this has no effect.
A related issue concerns the Media gallery. When logged in, I can see the correct image sticky at the top of the list and in the large box on the overview page. However, when logged out, this stickyness seems to be lost and another image appears.

Bug #3870 (Require Feedback): Can not import users with same fname/lname but diff guids

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2014-01-23 13:59

I can no longer use the excel import to import users with same fname/lname but with diff guids. Gives me error 'sql error duplicate key name'

Bug #3869 (Require Feedback): Move Tools page to Configuration menu

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2014-01-23 13:25

The Tools page seems oddly placed under structure, and should perhaps be moved to the configuration page. What do others think?

Bug #3868 (Active): Check Femail is working as expected

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2014-01-23 11:37

I am concerned that Femail may not be working as expected. We should test to see if email messages are being sent out correctly, and that they are also being received and entered into the forum.

Bug #3867 (Active): E-mail-forum intergration

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2014-01-23 10:58

Replying notification e-mails does not post the reply to the forum.

Bug #3866 (Active): Distorted display of the CC Licence image if the browser window is small

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2014-01-21 16:42


If the web browser size is less than the full width of the site and you hover over an image, the Creative Commons licence image gets blown up and is massively distorted. See attached image. Tested in Chrome and Firefox on a Mac and Windows Firefox (64 bit) .

Bug #3865 (Active): Not possible to edit permissions or roles in groups

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2014-01-21 15:06

It's not possible for a site maintainer to administer any permissions or roles in Groups.
