Bug #2849 (Active): Grid editor: search function not working for large dataset

Scratchpads Issue Queue - Sat, 05/11/2013 - 16:32

The search tool (magnifying glass) does not behave as expected for the specimen grid editor or the specimen/obs page on Antkey.

1. Terms entered into the taxonomy search field do not return any results, at least for terms that do not appear on the first dynamically generated set. For example, no results are returned for the taxonomy term 'Camponotus'.

2. If 'Taxonomy' tab is clicked first, then search button is clicked, a blank gray bar appears below the header row instead of the expected white search fields. The search bars then appear if I click on 'Required' then back to 'Taxonomy'. If search button is clicked first, while still on the 'Required' tab, search fields appear as expected.

Related to Issue #1385.

Bug #2848 (Active): Google Scholar lookup inoperative?

Scratchpads Issue Queue - Sat, 05/11/2013 - 13:52

Google scholar results are not displaying, even if I refresh the view. (example: Litoria caerulea)

Bug #2847 (Active): Literature display for taxon record

Scratchpads Issue Queue - Sat, 05/11/2013 - 13:51

The settings in the GIASIPartnership site were to display 5 records from the Biblio module, and 'More' (which I assume to mean that if there are more records there will be an indication of this). Dispite this, where there were more than 5 records there was no indication of this, nor means of displaying them. As a short-term fix I have changed the default number to 10. Note that currently there are more than 5 records of very few species, e.g. Litoria caerulea

Task #2846 (Active): Housekeeping - Sites marked for archival

Scratchpads Issue Queue - Fri, 05/10/2013 - 16:44

In accordance to the migration procedure documented at http://help.scratchpads.eu/w/Migration_Procedure the following Scratchpads 1 sites should be archived. The sites are marked for archival either because the maintainers have selected so or because we did not receive any response from the maintainers in due time.

The flatten version of the sites should clearly state the status of the site. It would also be useful if we could add the last update date.


Bug #2845 (Active): New content dropped in migration

Scratchpads Issue Queue - Fri, 05/10/2013 - 16:19

My site was upgraded. Overall, it is an improvement.

However, the data is old. Latest additions to the previous site were not included. At least these files are missing:


Bug #2843 (Active): adding data in the image grid editor

Scratchpads Issue Queue - Fri, 05/10/2013 - 14:49

I want to add data for images in the grid editor.
I select several images. Then click into the field I want to populate, a window opens, I add my data and save. The window closes after some time and the data has not been added. There is no error message; the information I paste in just doesn't save.

Bug #2842 (Active): Literature/ Biblio records not displaying (Eulophiinae)

Scratchpads Issue Queue - Fri, 05/10/2013 - 14:30

hello, there seems to be a glitch with the biblio module in the Eulophiinae site: Only 10 biblio records are visible in the Biblio module, but when I log in and go to 'Content' there are 1354 listed.
Thanks, Ruth

Bug #2841 (Active): unable to import all the children in the biological classification from WCM

Scratchpads Issue Queue - Fri, 05/10/2013 - 13:50

Importing a biological classification in the Agavoideae scratchpad adds only one term: Agavoideae. I need to import the associated child taxa.

Bug #2839 (Active): eMonocot DWC_A: Invalid Classification file/metadata causing import failure t...

Scratchpads Issue Queue - Fri, 05/10/2013 - 12:14

Recently created Dwc-A files are failing on import to the portal due to an error in the meta.xml file. Problems seen with Zingiberaceae, Alismataceae, Potamogetonaceae, Cannaceae

Comment from Joseph Kelly:

Invalid classification file/meta-data.
The meta.xml for all families listed indicate that there should be 11 columns however the classification.txt file only contains 10.

A quick check by eye indicates that a column for vernacular name is missing form the classification file:
from meta.xml
<field index="2" term="http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/vernacularName"/>

Bug #2836 (Active): eMonocot:: Ability to edit bugs within the eMonocot project area

Scratchpads Issue Queue - Thu, 05/09/2013 - 16:34

Is it possible to make sure that Serene gets all notifications of the bug changes within the eMonocot project and has the ability to update all bugs within this project area.

I assume there is some sort of permissions attached to this project area? Although not sure how it all works.

Bug #2831 (Active): references on node

Scratchpads Issue Queue - Thu, 05/09/2013 - 10:31

Please have a look at the node below. The references are all from the same biblio record. It says that in the 'Reference for all descriptions on this page' field. It then also lists the reference for each field individually. If appropriate, I only want the 'Reference for all descriptions on this page' displaying.
I want the order of the references field to appear below their respective text field. Where can I do that? At the moment the habitat reference is not where I want it. Please can you change this in the eMonocot template for future sites if needed.

Task #2830 (Active): Big red button in Scratchpads 2

Scratchpads Issue Queue - Wed, 05/08/2013 - 15:47

As previously discussed we should consider implementing the 'Big red button' functionality available in Scratchpads 1 sites in Scratchpads 2. This functionality will enable maintainers to download an sql instance of their sites.

Feature #2826 (Active): Add iNaturalist as a specimen/observation record source/service

Scratchpads Issue Queue - Tue, 05/07/2013 - 23:18

I have been in contact with the developers of iNaturalist (follow-up of #898). Can the Dev Team assess the amount of work it would take to add this as a service? We would have to add atomised license and attribution information for specimens and consider how/if to differentiate between external records and Scratchpad user records.
