Updates and WIP

Friday 27 March 2009 04:52 pm

group post bug
group owners were able to post in group discussions, but they were being incorrectly listed as 'class' discussion posts. Changed the in_group function in addDiscussion to return true if user is group owner.

PG DB (wip/beta)
various changes and updates to staff_view (lists progress of reports per student). Added reports_pending - will be admin tool to get overview of reports outstanding. Minor tweaks to other pages.

SCRIPT
added 'test' management tool - allows admins to create, edit and copy tests for the prescription tutor tool

Template site tool
updated the navigation manage to use the correct display name instead of the page name held in db

Research admin
link to these tools now included in classic navigation staff tools

SIPBS website
fixed bug that was stopping correct images in banner from showing. Updated css links as webteam moved them..

deptWeb
fixed imageBrowser problem with image scaling (path issue with getimagesize function)

change order (category content)
updated with new code to improve overall reliability, dragging out of subheadings. Recloured to improve readability. Minor issues with layout in IE7 fixed using style=height:auto...

staff assignments bug

Thursday 26 March 2009 12:23 pm

the staff assignments tool (non-file based) was not making an entry in the assignment_details table. This was allowing students to view marks/feedback before the owner had made them live - the default was to show marks/feedback as there are assignments that pre-date the assignment_details table.  Added in the code to ensure non-flle based assignments get an entry (with the marks not live).

This week on SPIDER...

Friday 20 March 2009 04:09 pm

hackers...
or so it seemed.. turned out that a year 1 computing class were being taught about scripting exploits and were told to try it out. Some chose to do so via the SPIDER discussions which caused a minor flurry of activity until the students were contacted and let us know they were told to do it... it happened to coincide with another phishing scam from 'me'.  Lost a good few hours checking everything was still secure.

questionnaires
update the class questionnaires page so that default shows only current questionnaires, with a link to an 'archive'

radiation
finally! fixed all the radiation database issues - the 'report' script was carrying a lot of very small rounding errors which when reporting on bin disposals over a 4 year period were totalling 0.002kBq. Altered the script to offset the rounding as it occurred so that the correct figure is shown.

news
updated the news include file to remove the username - not really needed

DDP
added a 'template' site for the drug discovery portal

updates

Friday 06 March 2009 05:01 pm

PG DB
updated staff view and data view scripts (show number of PG students per staff member, and detail view of staff member's students and their progress). Added 'finance code' and 'completed' fields to main student table. Student records page now shows academic staff a 'myStudents' listing their current PG students. Fixed bug in programme.php preventing saves to student report list.

userInfo
updated script to link to attendance data (staff view of students)

myAssignments
updated student view of assignments to show 'offline sub' if there is a mark for a checked-out assignment but no file upload. Fixed bug relating to view of assignment details if student has an entry for assignments from multiple sessions (ie resit causing duplicate entry for same name assignment)

attendance register
staff can now view multiple attendance events on one page (e.g. Mon Lecture, Wed Lecture, Thu Lecture) to get an overview of class attendances

login page (Tim)
added in redirect so that login page forwards you to the requested page if you have been 'timed out' or use a bookmark to login to a specific page instead of just taking you to the home page after login
