When editing a Taxonomy term (specifically http://sphingidae.myspecies.info/taxonomy/term/598#), under the "reference" tab, I can normally type the first few letters of an author in the reference field and a number of suggestions will pop up to select among. However, at present, all I get is the "in progress spinning icon" that just keeps spinning (for at least several minutes). As a result, I can't add the reference to the taxonomy term. The author and reference are there as I have checked via a Literature search.
The manual (http://help.scratchpads.eu/images/5/5e/BasicTManual3.pdf) indicates the setting to enable the character editor should be in Structure>Tools>Core, but I don't see it. Screenshot attached.
I am trying to create a bilingual French-English Scratchpad page, but am running into an issue.
I want to be able to create a page with text in English when English is the selected language and French when it is selected.
However, I am not able to translate the body field in a new page. When I go to body field settings, it tells me
"Because the field already has data, some settings can no longer be changed." What do I need to do to be able to translate the body field on new pages without deleting any data I've added to the site?? I don't need this ability on biblio and media entries, only on Pages.
When I tried to add information to the genus (taxonomy term) Caryodaphnopsis, I observed a strage behaviour. At first, upon Search Taxonomy, everything appeared normal. Then I clicked on "edit" in order to update the information. Now all tabs (Scientific name, Usage, Reference, Misc.) appeared empty, only the information in "Vernacular names" was still visible. Therefore, I added all information again. After saving it, both the old and the new data appeared when I searched for Caryodaphnopsis again. When I clicked on "edit" again, only the new information was visible. Then I saved that again, and everything appeared OK.
Now I tried to edit the species Caryodaphnopsis tonkinensis, and it looked the same: all information seems to have been lost when I click on "edit". It would make it unnecessarily complicated if ALL information on a taxon would have to be entered again when it would be necessary to correct only a small detail.
Is it possible to add country subdivisions for Venezuela in the Taxon Pages distribution maps?
Have been getting a 500 error on every species page on the Mormyrid Scratchpad for the past three days, i.e. http://mormyrids.myspecies.info/en/taxonomy/term/360
No such problems on my other two Scratchpads.
I am getting the distinct impression that no one is home at Scratchpads. The unaddressed issues in this queue are piling up. No updates to the news feed since February. I hope this is just a temporary state of affairs that the Brexit won't pose new existential issues for Scratchpads.
Given all the time that I and others have invested in our Scratchpads, wouldn't it be appropriate to update us users once in a while about what's going on at Scratchpads HQ and what's in the works for the future? Why not an occasional newsletter emailed to Scratchpad admins?
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?
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!
