Retromags To-Do List for the site

Recommended Posts

E-Day    656

There is always something to be done on this site, but I don't think there is a list somewhere to keep track of those things. So in order to hopefully keep better track of things that need to be done on the, this topic will list outstanding issues/fixes/changes, so that it's easy to find. Anyone can suggest things below, and valid ones will be added to this post. As things are fixed, they'll be crossed off. Similar to the post in the magazine section for issues with scans.

So far we have:

  • Fix the Tips & Tricks Magazine Database (Phillyman!!)
  • Update the FAQ page
  • Update and restore the scanning guides
  • Fix the Retromags News section so topics are not closed automatically
  • Fix the database page credits to allow multiple names (currently only the creator of the entry is credited - anyone who edits the entry with new information gets no credit)
  • Create newbie-friendly guides not just for scanning/editing, but for ALL forms of contributions (data entry/cover images/donations) & link them in the FAQ
  • Fix the sort order in the galleries to sort in "caption" order
  • Fix image uploader so it doesn't add strings of gibberish to the title of any filename that has spaces in it (this may be fixed in the upcoming image uploader upgrade?)

 

Got something else? Post it below!

- restore the ability to see your post without tags... i want to see this - "[ сolor= ][ b ]Retromags[ /b ][ /сolor ] [ сolor= ][ size= ]Present[ /size ][ /сolor ]" instead of Retromags Present. Maybe i do something wrong but i can't edit the second.
 

Just click the "source" button on the far left.

The FAQ page has been updated to reflect our rolling cut-off date, as well as to provide information about Patron status and links to more info about it as well as a link to the store.

You should probably edit the cutoff dates.  It says both defunct and ongoing magazines have a cut-off of 10 years.
