Re: r3798, r3809, r3817: Don't Panic

An addendum to Phil’s comment: I haven’t (yet) moved the [View] link to the ID column on the Links panel, nor have I thought about ‘Show details’ there (hmmm, Date & Description?)

I’m looking at separating the List/Edit functionality on that panel so any changes to bring it in line with the other panels will be done then.

Re: r3798, r3809, r3817: Don't Panic

Regarding the ‘show details’ toggles. I think the javascript function (function setClassDisplay(className, value)) need a slight revisit for the upcoming IE 10.

Atm, there is a sledgehammer check for IE (all) – it then toggles the display value between ‘block’ and ‘none’; for other browsers, the toggle is between ‘table-cell’ and ‘none. That works fine for IE 9 and older (they don’t really support display ‘block’ on TD elements; those keep their ‘tableness’ anyway). But my tests with Win 8 Consumer Preview / IE 10 indicate that the IE people finally (finally!) fixed that bug. Those tables may start looking pretty strange in IE 10…

The fix should probably be to put an additional version check.

(I haven’t tested the Textpattern admin backend, didn’t have time when I had access to Win 8 cp, and I can’t install it in a VM at home at the moment)

Thanks for the report.

I’m in two minds whether to completely rewrite some of the textpattern.js functionality in jQuery — let jQuery do the heavy lifting of browser / feature detection so we don’t have to. A bonus would be that some of the old-skool DOM loops employed in textpattern.js would probably be faster with jQuery’s .each() or its powerful selectors.

btw, when I said “I” in the sentence above, that’s an open call to anybody with better javascript skills than me to offer patches :-p

Re: r3798, r3809, r3817: Don't Panic

Regarding form terminology, for now how about putting a little question mark next to Form in the Form panel/tab which links to a little help box explaining it is (poor) terminology for a chunk of text, html or code that can be used and reused wherever a txp tag can be used?

I notice it says you are editing page template whatever. This is a good aid to understanding, imho. So perhaps – you are editing form (snippet) whatever, too? Regarding snippet, partial etc – how about tag-aid ? Sounds contrived but is a useful description maybe? Just my 2p.

That makes sense. After all, there’s one for Sections against the page heading, explaining what a Section is in Textpattern parlance, so we should do the same for Form. Leave it with me.

I notice it says you are editing page template whatever…. perhaps – you are editing form (snippet) whatever, too?

Yeah, why not. The string already exists on the lang server so it just requires a change there and then the translators to filter it down the language tree. I like your ‘(snippet)’ (or partial, or whatever) suggestion. Let’s choose a suitable string and I’ll get it changed.
