I just uploaded some 580 images to my scratchpad, then downloaded the template spreadsheet with the image data from the scratchpad, added the information I have, including 580 taxon names (all names in the permitted values list), and uploaded it.
All my images are there and most of the data, but the most important bit is missing - the taxon names, so they appear in the media gallery but not on the appropriate taxon pages. Very frustrating!
This happened last time I added a batch via this method, and I added the names in the slickgrid edit view. But I have images of some 80+ different taxa, so it makes it necessary to edit pretty much one image at a time.
I've only got a few more days working in a concentrated block of time on this scratchpad and this was my big upload of images and really important to get them on the site. They are there but buried!
In Content -> (Files) -> Image -> View
The column "Uploaded date" displays date/time the image was last edited. I would prefer it showed "Uploaded date" to "date last edited" in order to quickly tag new images etc.
I am using the "Toggle visibility of terms" option to show/hide some taxonomy terms. If I check the "hide" box, the terms disappear as expected. However, when I switch tabs (e.g. from Overview to Descriptions), the box is unchecked and the terms that were hidden are now visible. Is there any way to make this toggle value persistent when switching between tabs?
Hello, I am unable to export my bibliography even when my scratchpad site is not on maintenance mode for up to 7 hours. My bibliography has been published.
I get this message when I try -
Did you mean biblioth_research_export
Either no literature content has been added to this site, or it has not yet been indexed. Indexing can take up to one hour, so please check back later.
Thank you, Katy
Clicking on any of the file formats for biblio export in the http://pericallisrevision.myspecies.info/ site is returning a generic search results screen instead of prompting to download the file.
Collector/identifier field in Specimen/observation content type is a field that can be populated with multiple values. However due to the permitted values limitation in the excel template users cannot enter more than one values for these fields.
Is there a workaround for this?
This is a global issue
When I add a table to a page cut-and-pasted from a pdf, it appears with double-height rows (see e.g. http://fungi.myspecies.info/content/bls-new-reports). I’ve tried adding a specific height command to reformat the table but nothing I enter into the box seems to work. It is possible to change this? I asked Dimitris and he thinks it is probably a CSS issue. Since my original request for help, I've noticed that if I insert a row into one of these table then it appears as single-height.
All help much appreciated, as always.
Quoting maintainer's email:
Re the Specimen view on our site: Which columns can be filtered/sorted? I have several columns that are enabled for sorting/filtering but where one or both functions doesn't work. I have attached a pdf with my experiences. The layout of tabs/columns has been modified, but it wasn't working on the default layout either.
The SOF view (?) is not working on the Aeridinae Scratchpad:
There are definitely images for the taxon in the example above (Vanda cristata) on SOF: http://orchid.unibas.ch/iconography.simplesearch.php
It works on other orchid Scratchpads eg. Cypripedioideae:
I have just had a request for a new account for the Weevil scratchpad, with the link http://s1.weevil.info.myspecies.info/user/195/edit This takes me to the old version of the scratchpad, while it is not visible on the 'People' page of the new scratchpad.
I added a new biblio this evening, and another a few weeks ago, and neither are showing up in the Recently Added Literature Block on the homepage.
How can you change the search options menu on the Media gallery/images tab? ie. what you can facet on. I can't find anything on this on the wiki or in any of the menus.
It would be extremely useful to facet based on taxon name - even better if you could search multiple names at once.
You can open the individual pages in the classification but you need multiple windows and they each take a long time to load, cf. clicking the 'creator' names. Also, much easier to see where content is and where it is absent - very very useful.
Clicking on a synonym tab on any taxon page,
opens a completely blank page, not even the scratchpad header,
This is a major problem - site looks broken!
Reference links eg.
'Reference: CXXXVII. Vanda. 9. Vanda cristata' on http://aeridinae.e-monocot.org/aeridinae-classification/vanda-cristata
do not work - clicking on the link takes you to an error page:
' requested page not found. Add URL redirect from this page to another location'
Correct link should be:
Is it possible to add an edit option when viewing the profile node? When viewing a single profile the only option is "Edit view"
The help text on hover-over appears in strange places. Sometimes it appears in the top left of a field and displays off screen (Date of earliest specimen), other times it appears to the far right, away from a field
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!
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?
