Bug #4316 (Active): Hide Terms in Taxonomy

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2015-02-04 09:22

I recently learned (from the very useful pop-up feature directly after login!) how to hide the not accepted names in my taxonomy. However, the checkbox allowing visitors to filter something is labled with 'Hide terms', which is not instructive what specifically it does. How should a site user know which terms are going to be hidden, when checking the box? Is there an option to change this denotation according to the filter it exerts? E.g. 'Hide synonyms' or 'Hide subspecies'.
Best wishes,

Scratchpads issue queue - Sun, 2015-02-01 14:08

Hi all,

Is it possible to add more than one URL link in the homePage of one people account?

For the moment, only one is allowed and displayed.

Thank you for your help.


Bug #4314 (Active): Captcha blocking user in SIngapore

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2015-01-30 12:42

User "FSC" is based in Singapore and every time he tries to log into the PSG website, he has to complete captchas which never succeed and let him in. He is an important member of the PSG and I'd appreciate your help in resolving this issue.

He sent me this information:

It always says this and entering in the Captcha never works!!

Bug #4313 (Active): Diacritic marks in filenames

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2015-01-28 12:17

Diacritic marks in filenames prevent derivative images from being created (see attached image). Note, this only occurs on Quartz/Web-silica, and not my development machine, which suggests it could be a PHP version issue.

Bug #4312 (Active): Tinytax block selective display?

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2015-01-27 22:27


Is there any way to restrict the taxonomy terms in the tinytax block to those marked as "accepted"? I have added a boolean field "field_checklist_status", and I would like to configure a block that only displays the taxa where this field has a specified value. Is that in any way possible?

Feature #4311 (Active): WYSIWYG button for entityfilter module

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2015-01-27 11:39

The entityfilter module is a great addition to text fields, but it requires knowledge of the IDs of particular fields. It would be great if a button could be added to the WYSIWYG editor that enables a user to search entities for their IDs. e.g. The could click on the button, and start typing "user:simon", at which point "user:Simon Rycroft" is presented, clicking on that enters "[entity:user:23]" into the text area.

Bug #4310 (Active): Unusual traffic to our site

Scratchpads issue queue - Mon, 2015-01-26 09:30

This may not be a Scratchpads system issue as such but I have noticed something strange about the traffic to our Scratchpads site lately. I want to ask your opinion on this since NHM is generously hosting our site. The Google Analytics tool is activated on the site (basic staistics). I have noticed an increase in visits over the last ca. five weeks. Most visits in this period are from returning visitors and nearly all originate from Samara or Moscow (Russia). I haven't done any thorough slicing of the statistics but notice that most visits bounce after the first hit. The "Top content" list is topped by two pages unknown to me called "Apple" and "Co.lumb". The top ten items on the list of referring sites contains some pretty unusual addresses like "blackhatworthwoth.com", "priceg.com" and “iloveitaly.com”.

Apart from being slightly annoyed that this traffic is spamming our modest visitor statistics is this something I should be worried about? :-)

I can send you the login details for the analytics site if you need it.

Bug #4309 (Active): Unknown user on a fresh local instalation of Scratchpads 2

Scratchpads issue queue - Mon, 2015-01-26 00:16

I just finished a fresh installation of Scratchpads 2 from GIT. Just by curiosity I checked the users table in MySQL and to my surprise I found a strange entry of an user which obviously I had not created!!!.

Maybe a security issue?

Is there any way for the maintainer to solve this issue?

Bug #4306 (Active): Descriptions of Pictures

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2015-01-22 12:05

I added jpg-files to a page. I also wanted to add captions to these figures and thought I could do this by clicking on 'edit media' of each of the three figures and fill in my text in the field 'description'. However, as soon as I edited a second figure, I overwrited the former caption. Is only one caption for all media items possible?

Bug #4305 (Active): Auto expand tinytax tree?

Scratchpads issue queue - Mon, 2015-01-19 21:56

Dear scratchpad team,

When I view content on my scratchpad (ie with the taxonomic tree to the left of the screen) it defaults to the highest taxonomy. The tree is collapsed, and to browse I have to manually open different nodes. This can take some time, especially with the delay in loading each branch/node.

Is there an option to have the tree opened to a certain taxonomic level by default? Say, when I start to look at the content, the tree is auto-expanded to show all family-level items?

Any help or suggestions you can provide would be much appreciated.

I am trying to upload new names - I did the biblio manually (couldn't make the excel upload work), but now with the taxonomy upload (only 4 names) I get the message "term missing".

Bug #4302 (Active): Disabling SCAYT

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2015-01-15 12:44

I have been having problems highlighting text etc and have discovered that the source of the problem is the built-in spell-checker SCAYT. Now every time I open a page for editing I disable SCAYT and this makes the page far more responsive. My question is can SCAYT be disabled by default, so I don't have to do it each time I edit a page?

Bug #4301 (Active): Issues with biological classification

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2015-01-14 22:58

1. On front-end classification page most of the term names have a leading space ("Genus_species" vs "_Genus_species"). For example, see the difference b/w "Acromyrmex octospinosus" (no leading space) and "Anergates atratulus" (leading space present) on the page http://antkey.org/taxa/trichomyrmex-destructor.I cannot find a way to remove these on the bulk import side. Only solution I can find is to edit the Unit Name 1 and 2 on-site which takes too long.

2. I get the following error when importing classification updates:
Missing bundle property on entity of type node.
Term name missing.
Missing bundle property on entity of type node.
Term name missing.
Missing bundle property on entity of type node.
Term name missing.
Missing bundle property on entity of type node.

3. Term names have 2 spaces b/w genus and species in the imported classification. Both on the template and the PermittedValues tab.

4. Terms appear out of alphabetical order (http://antkey.org/admin/structure/taxonomy/taxa)

5. Duplicate terms separated by pipes are added to a bunch of the fields when I download an excel template file for updating data.

Bug #4300 (Active): Allow a site maintainer to "clear the cache"

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2015-01-14 13:06

[Originally suggested by E.Sarnat] Many problems experienced by users on their Scratchpads can be fixed by "clearing the cache", it would therefore be beneficial to both users and the Scratchpad Team if we allowed maintainers to clear their site's cache. A simple page under "Configuration" which allows the site's cache to be cleared (rather than via the hidden performance pages) would be great.

Bug #4299 (Active): New Taxonomy page not showing

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2015-01-14 07:33

Hi there - with some of the problems my page had in December,I lost a taxonomy page. I recreated the page using taxonomy and then add vocabulary. I then imported the excel file. I got an error message after it said it had imported the terms, and the page itself is not showing up at all. Help? I am also still getting an error message that says there was a problem with my drupal installation. Many thanks.

Bug #4297 (Active): Images in Anatomical Glossary of Mosquito Taxonomic Inventory

Scratchpads issue queue - Sat, 2015-01-10 16:55

The images here are still arrayed vertically rather than horizontally as they were in the previous version of the Scratchpad Software. I thought his was to be changed for all Scratchpads nearly two years ago. Will this be changed?
