From Gallery Codex

Revision as of 06:58, 13 August 2005 by Bharat (Talk | contribs) (Warnings and Errors)



  • No logout link
  • CSS does not pass validation
  • Need a site favicon (picts from logo)
  • Under the Related Websites sidebar, "JadeDragon'sSkins" - Missing space
  • Charset issues; can be seen in April fools news (M�ller) and User Testamonials
  • Charset issues; some forum content has the same charset issues, e.g. the description for the "German Language Support" forum
  • April fools news item contains a "more details" link to gmc1.. should this have been rewritten?
  • We need a Wiki decision, two Wikis are confusing

Broken Links

  • Marquee Support link
  • Marquee Developer link
  • Header documentation link. Link to codex instead?
  • Header download link
  • These main navigation links (in right nav): Screenshots, Sample Galleries, Documentation, Gallery FAQ
  • Click on my account, then login. The View tab of my account is just an empty page.

Browser Specific Issues

  • Safari - Top banner buttons broken, no icons, displayed stacked without style.
  • Mozilla (didn't try others) - Forums list uses big first letter for each forum; when I mouseover it becomes normal size and when I moved the mouse off it stays that way.


  • How about a little JS to preload the hover images? There's a little delay the first time you hover over while they d/l. -BMW (Aug 12 2005)

Warnings and Errors

Bad UI

  • [Search Tips page] Search input box not labelled
  • [Login page] Username input is ~75% wide
  • [Advanced Search page] Date inputs are ~75% wide
  • [My Account - Edit] Password inputs misaligned
  • [My Account - Edit] Email and Username inputs are ~75% wide
  • [Forums] Comment threading makes long posts unreadable
    • flatforum module installed -- theming of this is underway (Trae)
  • [Main page, Recent posts, User testamonials] Page links at bottom line wrapped between "next" and "page"
  • [Forums list, topics list] some of the content overlaps the nav boxes on the right
  • [Gallery Team] two places show a ! before a name (old-wiki tokens to prevent making those words into links?).. should be stripped in migration
  • [Forums, News] Don't show title/topic at top
  • [News] No division between news items other than new heading.. one news item (SoC) contains a heading that is even bigger (about the deadline) which kinda makes it look like a separate news item

Missing Functionality

  • Sample Galleries not implemented (needs an embedded G2)
  • User roles not migrated
  • Forum Avatars not migrated
  • Comments from stories not migrated (or partially migrated?)
  • Can't see comments on news items or replies to forum topics when not logged in
  • Can't post new forum topic (logged in or not)
  • Forum: Missing canned response drop-down
  • Forum: Missing immediate reply box at the end of a thread
  • Forum: The "Last reply" column should not just be text, it should also be clickable
  • Forum: BBCode GUI as in phpbb
  • Search: Add some text to explain the minimal search string length
  • Search: Give some feedback when nothing was found, instead of a blank results area
  • Member list



  • Search is slow
    • Not anymore; we've properly enabled FULLTEXT searching and now it is much faster.
    • 2005/08/12, comment by valiant: IMO it's still quite slow. Well, not always, maybe I just had bad luck. Searching for apache took long, also for server.

Warnings and Errors

  • Advanced Search page
    • 3 warnings at the top of the page: fixed
  • User Testimonials page
    • 3 warnings above Gallery logo: fixed
