Bug #4262 (Active): Terms link to the zh-hans term page

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2014-11-14 16:07

By Scratchpads Team on behalf of Eli Sarnat.

Currently all of the terms on the http://antkey.org/taxa/anergates-atratulus page link to the Chinese version of the taxonomy term page, when they obviously should link to the English versions.

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2014-11-11 16:21

Hi, I had a character matrix on the genus Milichia on my Scratchpad 1 site which is missing Scratchpad 2. I think I also had one or two other character projects. Is it possible to get them back online?

Bug #4256 (Active): Calender view help

Scratchpads issue queue - Sat, 2014-10-25 11:57

Hi SP team,

I'm having trouble making this page: http://phasmid-study-group.org/eventlook how I want it, please can you help?

1. I want to add a link on this page to create new events (link: http://phasmid-study-group.org/node/add/event). How can I add a simple link saying "If you want to add a new event, click here" with that link?

2. on the calender on left, where it shows the months/year, how can I make this a add drop list where the user can select the month/year from drop down or pop up?

Thank you!

Bug #4255 (Active): People (collectors)- no option for "Unknown"

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2014-10-22 13:05

It's not always possible to determine the nationality of a specimen collector. Because "Country" is currently a required field for "People" I am currently using "Antarctica" for those collectors for which IPNI does not provide this information, in lieu of trawling through the literature to find out.
It would be useful to either make this field not required/ have alternative fields or a module for collectors vs contributors/ or provide an option "Unknown" in the dropdown menu.
With thanks, Ruth

Bug #4254 (Active): Unable to edit all specimen fields in Grid view

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2014-10-22 12:59

Under ‘Grid’ view, when editing specimen data, once a single field has been edited, the neighbouring field is unavailable for several minutes. It's not practical to clear the cache after each edit (if this is the problem) unless there's a shortcut way to do this? might there be other reasons?

Bug #4253 (Active): Specimen collection dates- autocomplete of day/ month

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2014-10-22 12:53

When entering collection dates of specimens it is not always possible to include month and day (often not provided on older specimen labels).
Year and month alone seems to be auto-corrected, to give the last day of the preceding month (e.g. 1943/10 becomes 1943/09/30). Is there a work around for this please? With thanks, Ruth

Bug #4252 (Active): Biblio: box for journal name, issue, etc. missing from form fields

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2014-10-15 22:46

It looks like a bunch of fields that should be in the 'Publication' tab are missing.

Bug #4251 (Active): Fatal error message

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2014-10-09 02:12

After an aborted image file update with an Excel file, I am getting this error message at the bottom of all my pages:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function biblio_get_contributor_category() in /var/www/chrysomelidae.miza-ucv.org.ve/sites/all/modules/contrib/biblio/modules/bibtexParse/biblio_bibtex.module on line 384

Bug #4250 (Active): Change content of small block on front page

Scratchpads issue queue - Wed, 2014-10-08 15:53

How do I change the content of one small block on the front page. The only possibilities to chose from now are Page, Biblio, Taxon description, Media Gallery and Webform. I would like to include other content (recent news, deadlines, ...). Is this possible?

Bug #4249 (Active): Adding a file field in the taxon Summary page

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2014-10-07 17:01

I have added a file field to upload a PDF file (actually a checklist of a taxon) to show in the Overview block of a Taxon page, it shows nicely in the Description section, but I would like it to be shown at the Overview section so people can download the checklist at first view.

Any suggestions on how to do this, or maybe another way to do it that I am unaware of.


Bug #4248 (Postponed): Creation of large thumbnails not working

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2014-10-02 15:12

I have been uploading many image files to my site, everything goes as it should up to the point where in the Media Gallery for any taxa I try to open up one of the images. The image overlay comes up with the metadata but the Large thumbnail is broken. I have copied the image path and paste it to a new browser window and try to open it, but I get a message that says "Error al crear la imagen" (Spanish) that would translate to "Error creating the image".
I have checked the folder/files permissions and they seem Ok.
This bug is affecting only the recently uploaded files, I have other files uploaded some months ago that work just fine.

Bug #4247 (Active): Trouble adding taxa to bibliography import

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2014-09-25 12:49

I have been trying to import taxa into the bibliography. I have tried using quotes, just the taxa, and the lifedesk classification. Do you guys know what the trick is?


Bug #4246 (Active): logo not displaying

Scratchpads issue queue - Sun, 2014-09-21 15:15

I have tried to upload a new logo to the site (annonaceae.myspecies.info) but it doesn't appear. I tried the same file on a diff scratchpad I have and it works. I attach the file here. I have also tried with different extension like jpeg, png and tiff, but without muck.
What is going wrong?

Bug #4245 (Active): DwC-A taxon file contains invalid namePublishedID values

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2014-09-18 15:28


For a number of taxa, the namePublishedInID (Original Publication) has the same, seemingly erroneous value "http://families.e-monocot.org/node/", e.g. Typhaceae (taxonID=urn:kew.org:wcs:family:40). The 2 issues are:
1)Multiple different namePublishedIn "references" have the same conflicting namePublishedInID rather than unique identifiers.
2)These references do not appear in the references extension file.

Am I right in guess that the 2 issues stem from a common root cause; nodes not being created for them? If so can nodes be created for them?


Bug #4244 (Active): Lack of button to create/request new account on login area

Scratchpads issue queue - Tue, 2014-09-16 16:08

When the login button is pressed on the front page, no clickable link appears to allow requesting/creation of a new account. Consequently, no-one is aware they can join the scratchpad. Can this link be made available?
