yvi: (Dreamwidth - Badass Dreamwidth dev)
[personal profile] yvi
I am moved and have survived the first two weeks of my new job, so I am hoping to get re-started on Dreamwidth development over the next few days. I just assigned two simple bugs to me to get me started:

"Other accounts" should be anchored, for just adding an anchor tag on the profile page

If a user has opted out of PMs, remove "send message" from the hover menu

After that, I want to resubmit Add non-existent interest from interest search, where I am waiting on some clearifications, and do the comment part of "random userpic" option on comments & posts. Once that is out of the way, I will hopefully feel motivated to finish Private Message a Community to Contact Its Moderators .

And then, finally, sometimes towards the end of August /start of September I suspect, when I am more settled into work, I want to start on the memories overhaul. I'll need [staff profile] mark for parts of that, so I'll have to wait until he's back from OSCON anyway.

During the work on the memories thing I'll be picking up other things anyway, but I want to really focus on one big thing for a while. I think that will be fun, though probably also brain-wrecking :D

I'll also probably need some cheerleaders, so I hope you'll be doing that :)

I could probably use this again, huh?

Well, I haven't been doing much dev stuff lately because of job applications and so on. The past two days, I have done work on two bugs.

http://bugs.dwscoalition.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2012 use a tag list not a tag cloud on the subscription filter interface

That one I really wanted to get done Friday. I had it review- once and implemented [personal profile] fu's idea about using a span tag around the links and tag usage counts, which worked nicely, but this resulted in the tag box not using a variable height anymore ^^ Instead the height is now constant and the tag list overflows the box. And I have no idea how to fix this. I looked into every CSS file I could to see if that was the problem, but no results so far.

http://bugs.dwscoalition.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2474 Add non-existent interest from interest search

This is something I suggested a few months back. The problem with this is that the code to add a single interest already exists - but the code needs an interest ID, which a non-existant interest of course doesn't have. I then already had an idea of how to implement it - implement a function for creating an interest id and then adding the interest normally. So yesterday I finally did that and, inspired b< [personal profile] kareila I also did some mild code-cleanup. There was one portion of the SQL that was already in the code I didn't quite understand, but for the moment I just left it in. I suppose it's another failsafe for not adding an interest into the global table twice.

As an aside: there are two interests tables: one for communities and one for users. Interesting.

I had to change a translation string and decided to instead of using a "click here" link to add the interest make the link descriptive, so the link nor says "add it to your profile". I think I read about this being a nice accessibility-feature somewhere, that links are at least as descriptive as possible instead of just being "here" or "click".

While testing this, I noticed another somewhat related thing and opened this bug: http://bugs.dwscoalition.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2744 interest search needs warning/explanation if interest is too long . I didn't want to fix it directly because it isn't really in the scope of "my" bug, but it is related, because if you have a really long interest and search for it, it of course doesn't exist. If you then do a one-click add, the interest gets truncated and you add a 'wrong' interest. So the search should warn you that the interest is too long and instead of "$longinterest" it searched for "$shortinterest" and then use "$shortinterest" for the rest of the page.
