Transitional issues with big update

Post by Rar » Tue Oct 17, 2006 12:16 am

Issues to be fixed from recent changes (suprisingly few encoding-switch related):

Some 'hentai' titles are not hidden due to not having had their categories set properly
- To fix: Add 18 Restricted cat to all titles currently missing it where needed - Note, you can do this yourself people, as long as you're logged in

No escaping for animelist search terms, leading to broken markup and links (this was already an issue, but is worse now quote marks are useful)
- To fix: Short term, hack in escaping, long term, rewrite page with less fragile tools Done

Single hit forwarding is broken when there are multiple titles for the same target
- To fix: Stick a while loop round the get-next-row that breaks if the aid changes Done

Popup for agcmts from the anime page has the nav stuff in it
- To fix: Changed, needs checking out onto live website Done

Several pages have reduced presentational markup and no pretty layout css yet: agcmts, addaproducer, addseq, addanimetitle addgroup.addparent, more?

The "hide producers i have" addition might be too heavy compared to its actual utility to be worth keeping
- improved, i think it's ok now (epox)

Newly refered to tempvote page doesn't actually exist yet (though egg has written it).

Stats need to return to mydbentries pages, also some other things to do with that.

PHP points at image sig stuff (which you've already discovered in another thread), but if you find any other new issues, shout.

To clarify, this is just an announcement of known issues, not a call for assistance.

I doubt exp would be keen on opening the core source to more programmers right now, although you could always ask. We do have things vaguely under control, it's just that someone forgot to try testing these things and noting the issues before the update...
