Share Site Beta   ]

Known issues to work on:

    Make gallery information more pertinent.
    Update pages to have the right sidebar.
    Update code page.
    Update credo page.
    Make News Add Form not able to select audio/video/audio video as news/event genre.
    Add phpbb code entry to pertinent forms.
    Make posts editable by creator/admin
    Use shell script for imagemagick server side handling.
    Limit MP3 uploads to single mp3 at a time, unlike image gallery uploads.
    Figure out what (if anything) the pulldown bars above the left menu items should do.
    Properly enable search.


Also, please keep in mind the workflow of the site. When adding events, they are added to the approval queue. This means that unless they are approved by a notified admin, they will not show up on the main pages. Once they are approved they show up on the schedule/main page in accordance to the date/time of the event, not of when it was added.

Questions, ask on the list or in comments.

Thanks,

Apparently, make sure that News/Events are properly excluded from their appropriate categories in PHP. Announcements (genreID=4) arent events. Ill upload new PHP tomorrow from work to fix this. (maybe).

Fixed the multimedia upload issue. found another odd bug with capitol extension filenames, but fixed that as well. slowly but surely.

when I upload something there should be some sort of link to where I can actually see that thing - or if it is held for approval it should tell me that.

it would be cool to get a list of all registered users on one page. if you could display, say, all mp3s, sorted by submitter...

add a link to the stream somewhere! the code is:

function hifi() {
leftPos = 0
rightPos = 0
if (screen){
leftPos = (screen.width/2)-250;
rightPos = (screen.height/2)-275}

if (!window.hifiWin){
hifiWin = window.open("hifi.html","hifiWin","width=290,height=238,left="+leftPos+",top="+rightPos+",resizable=no,toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=no");
hifiWin.moveTo(leftPos,rightPos);
hifiWin.location = "hifi.html";
hifiWin.focus()
}
if (hifiWin.closed){
hifiWin = window.open("hifi.html","hifiWin","width=290,height=238,left="+leftPos+",top="+rightPos+",resizable=no,toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=no");
hifiWin.moveTo(leftPos,rightPos);
hifiWin.location = "hifi.html";
hifiWin.focus()
}
hifiWin.focus()
}

I'm using a (possibly broken) IE5 on windows 2000 professional. Every time a page loads, i get a popup error and it offers to start the debugger.
Maybe not our fault; i get the same thing from MSN.com (!) and a few other sites (tho most are okay)

layout: big, too much stuff at the top of the screen. even with browser maximized, i had to scroll way down to find the actual page content.
at first, i thought there was no content. The login prompt at the right -draws on top of the media thumbnails. There are two thumbnails too
many, causing the media section to take up two rows. the search prompt dropdown box is too small. search is oriented vertically, wasting lots of screen space to its right. It looks like news, search, and login all could have fit in the row which news now occupies. Similarly, "powered by" used a vertical layout: 140 pixels for a few 30-pixel logos. And this should go at the bottom of the screen, not above the actual page content.

account signup didn't tell me which data were required. error message listed three possible causes for error (email, or name taken, or password too short)

perhaps a way to sort the media by audio, video and images so you dont just get the entire lot all at once....

notes for anton and i:

- add this declaration (http://leftjustified.net/journal/2004/10/07/css-negotiation/)
to position.css, which zeroes defaults across all browsers:

* {
padding:0;
margin:0;
}

- either add scrollbars to the add media popup or (preferably) have it load in the page.
- move Powered By to footer
- link to accessibility statement in footer (see http://danwinckler.com/share/access.php)
~ add "What is Share?" link
~ replace media thumbs in left nav with upload/download statistics
~ move search above the fold (right nav)
...
