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!

Scratchpads issue queue - Mon, 2014-05-12 16:44

Import the cephbase site from EOL.

Bug #4119 (Active): The tags [bib][/bib] are not striped when rewrite results in a view

Scratchpads issue queue - Sat, 2014-05-10 07:45

Dear team,

I have developped a view sorting the genera by biogeographic regions.
It works well but when rewriting results for fields Distributions and Biology, the tags [bib][/bib] are not striped resulting in poor view.

Please could you allow this?

Moreover I have one question: How should it be possible to make similar view based on the data introduced in the map present under description tab of a taxon description?

Thank you for your help!!

Bug #4118 (Active): alignement problems with biblio references

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2014-05-08 07:31

Dear Team,

On my site, since few days I saw that the biblio reference :
- are not aligned correctly on the overview tab page (the bullet number isput away on the left)
- that they lost their numbers on the descriptions tab page (the number is well present in [] in the text but absent near the corresponding citations) http://doryctinaekey.myspecies.info/taxonomy/term/276/descriptions

Thank you for your help :-)

Bug #4117 (Active): Update eol_gbif_maps module

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2014-05-07 12:19

The EOL tile service is no longer used by EOL (they are now using one provided by GBIF), we should update our service to also use GBIF directly.

Bug #4116 (Active): Colorbox no working

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2014-05-02 21:46

I just made a fresh installation of Scracthpads 2, but the images are not presented in a Lightbox. I have checked the configuration of Colorbox and left it as installed. Any suggestions?

Bug #4114 (Active): I am having some content that appears as italicized in the site and cannot fi...

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2014-05-01 20:58


For some reason, for the past 2 days I am seeing some of the content in my site (http://microgastrinae.myspecies.info/) that appears as italicized. It is happening specially to the bottom of the Home Page, where the "Recent Pages", "Recent Blog entries", and "Recently added taxonomic descriptions" are. It also happened to the Taxonomy pages. The weirdest thing is that I only see that when logging (as an administrator of the site), if I visit the site as a public (i.e., no user account) then I see things normal. But I cannot find a solution to this, even though I have browsed the site trying to find something that fixes the problem...

Thank you very much!

Bug #4113 (Active): Everything appears in italics

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2014-05-01 09:33

However text is formatted in the descriptions, it appears on the screen in italics. See for example http://fungi.myspecies.info/all-fungi/isaria-friesii and information on recent additions on the home page. Any help will be much appreciated - Paul

Bug #4112 (Active): Biblio: how to bulk edit nodes

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2014-04-30 18:51

Is there any way to bulk edit biblio nodes? For example, if I want to add taxonomic names to the nodes, is there a way to do that other than editing them one by one? Is there any option for exporting existing biblio nodes to csv/xls format? Thanks.

Bug #4110 (Active): Sorting of literature list

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2014-04-29 18:17

The literature list does not sort according to the normal conventions of a bibliography. I would expect papers by an author to sort in date order for single authored papers first and then papers where that author is the first author of two or more, sorted by the second author's surname and then date order and so on. At the moment, it is sorted by first author's surname and then apparently arbitrarily (by key I think?).

For example, in my present list I get:
Chandler, 1975
Chandler & Stubbs, 1975
Chandler, 1974
Chandler & Stubbs, 1974
Chandler, 1970
Chandler, 1998

Bug #4109 (Active): Questions regarding extra-tabs addition, map options and possible bug fixes

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2014-04-29 13:00

Here are some of the issues that came up, while we were working on: http://cyanobacteria.myspecies.info:
1 ) Is it possible to add an extra tab (eg toxicity data) where the information is displayed for each strain, besides the already available tabs: overview, descriptions, media, literature, maps, specimens (http://cyanobacteria.myspecies. info/taxonomy/term/284). If not possible, where we could add this kind of information and how?

2 ) After we upload the template for the taxonomy, we edit the genera and the species to be in italics (using ), and as a result in tab descriptions, it appears: <I>ANABAENA</I> AUTH 0899 (http://cyanobacteria.myspecies.info/taxonomy/term/274/descriptions) and also in the navigator (Home »Anabaena AUTH 0899» Cyanobacteria »Nostocales» Nostocaceae Anabaena» Anabaena AUTH 0899). Please see attached picture (red arrows show the "bug"); this appears in all our pages (strains). Is there a way to fix it?

3) Is it possible to make a total map with all the cyanobacterial strains (specimens) and the locations that they were isolated from?

4) Is it possible to set the zoom in-zoom out on a map, since creating a location is already set to zoom in.

Bug #4108 (Active): One new option to sort taxon pages?

Scratchpads issue queue - Mon, 2014-04-28 08:24

Dear team,

I wondered how it could be possible for someone to sort only the taxon page related to a geographic area (like someone would like to know the taxon present in Africa without to scroll in all the taxonomy tre, e.g.)?

This could be like a popup available in the taxonomy tree box, and offering option to sort the taxonomy following some criteria.

Indeed it could be interesting for long taxonomy trees like mine.

Thank you for your informations

Bug #4107 (Active): Is it possible to delete one attached file of an issue request ?

Scratchpads issue queue - Sun, 2014-04-27 11:35

Dear team,

Searching on the web I found this link

Which point to a txt file that I had submited to give you an exemple of DELTA format in the goal of an old character project.

Is it possible to remove it?
Because I can't find it in the Issues listing.

Thank you for your help!
