Bug #4134 (Active): wrong placement of new taxa in taxonomy

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2014-05-27 16:12

Dear team,

I have added three new taxa on my taxonomy but they appear just under the firts term.
I have tried to place them manually at their right place (txaonomic terms are ordered alphabetically) but they returns each time to their wrong place when I view them in user view.
The three wrongly placed terms are ficobolus, plesiopsenobolus, and sabinita in taxonomy of Doryctinae

Please could you fix that?
Is it possible to have a tool allowing an alphabetical sorting of the main term of a taxonomy ? This could be helpfull.

Thank youfor your help!

Feature #4133 (Active): Investigate use of the ChEBI ontology in Scratchpads

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2014-05-27 15:55

As part of the development of the NHM Hypericum site (http://hypericum.myspecies.info) we are trying to establish the best way to use a standardised way of registering chemical compounds.

The chEBI database and ontology of Chemical Entities of Biological Interest seems to provide a very good way of capturing chemical data in a Scratchpad.

Please investigate the best way of integrating this dataset (maybe in the context of the vocabulary integration module?)


Bug #4132 (Active): Page not loading properly

Scratchpads issue queue - Sun, 2014-05-25 14:27

Hello, there is a small problem with one of the internal hyperlinks in my website. On the page http://fungi.myspecies.info/content/host-index the link to Plant Hosts A works OK when I'm logged in, but not when I'm not. All the others are OK. I think it's something to do with the way Scratchpads assigns file names when pages are added, but I've tried adding a replacement page and renaming it - this doesn't work.

All help appreciated. I've had two users complain this morning, so would appreciate a speedy fix.


Bug #4131 (Active): problem in bibliography references

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2014-05-20 14:46

Dear team,

I have just observed that some discrepancy exist between the number of items for a given name in the Bilio setting>Authors view and the "secondary menu" in the Litterature page.
For example:
In bilio setting>authors (http://doryctinaekey.myspecies.info/taxonomy/term/186/descriptions#overlay=admin/config/content/biblio/author) the author Belokobylskij has 89 items
In litterature page (http://doryctinaekey.myspecies.info/biblio?sort=desc&order=Year) the author Belokobylskij has only 86 items

Once this author is selected to filter biblio AND sorted at least one times, the list contains 89 items.

Probably other authors are also affected by this problem.

Please could you fix it?

Thank you for your help!

Bug #4130 (Active): Remaining issues after site upgrade

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2014-05-20 14:42

Maintainer reported:

1. Clicking the "Wallace's Houses" link in the left menu bar now says "requested page not found"!!
2. "Jeffrey Neilson's blogs" is still listed as a tab on the top menu. Has to be removed
3. In the "Map of UK Wallace sites" the links to images aren't working properly. Images of the properties can't be found e.g. see http://wallacefund.info/category/image-galleries/wallaces-houses/houses-hertford/the-fifth-house
4. comments are still enabled - e.g. see http://wallacefund.info/comment/reply/2044#comment-form

Bug #4129 (Active): Removed Groups from site but cannot remove group fields from content

Scratchpads issue queue - Sun, 2014-05-18 19:40

all the groups fields are locked - how can i delete them?

Bug #4128 (Active): Redirect loops

Scratchpads issue queue - Sun, 2014-05-18 12:29

Hi SP team,

Has there recently been a change to url redirects in SP? I ask because suddenly many of our pages are stuck in redirect loops, so the page doesn't display. Oddly - it displays if you are logged in, but not if you aren't.

I've fixed all the obvious ones by removing any redirects, but is there any way you can run a check through all links on our site to find any I didn't spot, please?

I have no idea what has caused this: previously all the pages worked fine....if you can shed any light, that would also be appreciated, thanks!


Bug #4127 (Active): Add XML export of Publication

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2014-05-16 23:46

Would it be possible to allow registered users to download the XML file that would normally be sent to Pensoft when using the 'Publish' option for a Taxonomic Paper (assuming it is an XML file that is sent to Pensoft)?

Feature #4126 (Active): Export custom fields into DwC-A, perhaps aggregating fields together

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2014-05-16 12:07

The Solanacaesource website includes a number of custom SPM fields. These custom fields are not exported in to the DwC-A, which reduces the usefulness of the archive. The custom fields should be exported, and if necessary, aggregated together.

Bug #4125 (Active): DwC-A export includes duplication of authority

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2014-05-16 12:04

Solanum dulcamara in http://solanaceaesource.org/dwca.zip has 'L., L., L., L., and L., “Sp. Pl. 185. 1753.”, 1753.' as the authority - this is clearly wrong.

Feature #4124 (Active): Allow EoL images to be attached to nodes

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2014-05-16 09:25

Add an option to prevent the filtering out of images from EoL in the media browser tab.

Bug #4122 (Active): How to do?

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2014-05-15 16:31

Dear Team,

My question could be put in a wiki, if the answer exist.

Is it possible to customize a page to have one block on the left and one other block on the right, the left block could be one of my choice and the right block could be a text block, e.g.?

Or in other words, is it possible to clone the home page and to customize it to use this new model in other place of the site?

Looking forward to your answers,

Bug #4121 (Active): Unexpected opening of the window download

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2014-05-14 15:43

Dear team,

On the Taxon description page, when creating a new taxon desciption, I enter the taxonomic in the field Taxonomic name. But each time when I validate (by enter, e.g.) the choice the download window open. So I need to cancel this new window before to continue the edition of the new taxon description.
This seems recent as comportment.
You can also simply put the cursor in the field Taxonomic name and push on enter. The window appear again.

Please could you make something to avoid this?

Thank you very much for your help!
