This Week's Tweaks

Friday 23 March 2012 04:33 pm

uLab
updated register page function to use useFields array instead of ignoreFields array. Moved the functions/ vars to inc_user_reg.php, which made it easier to manage the user profile page and the register pages. Updated user profile page to use tabs, splitting data to user details and institution details. Minor change to lab_designer layout. Added equipment list tool (allows editing and link to make item bookable tool). Added data functions to inc_ulab_functions.php. Created groups tool.

SIPBS website
fixed bug in current website to correctly show page not found message. Transferred more content to T4 (grad school, started on research pages).

ePDP
fixed bug in staff PDP progress page that was not showing completely empty student ePDPs when filtering by incomplete PDPs.

Applicants database
updated qualifcations/ subject list with new entries.

Radiation records database
updated monthly labs to include RW 421.

PG Records database
bug fix in show_report to correctly  handle date comparison for upcoming change to new quarterly progress reports. Bug fix student_lists so that filter now defaults to 'all' instead of 'blank' if user makes no selection in filters.

Core
updated inc_form_blocks & inc_form to handle password elements (for uLab rather than SPIDER)

uLab
added registration function - simplified version of STS registration. Bug fixes to lab_designer to get it to work in IE correctly. Update inc_functions/ codePrefs/ inc_javascript with 'tab' tools/ style. Added tabbed layout to members page. Added new style/ design to members page (icons) and all other pages. Booking tool updated to allow for 24/7 bookings. Updates to search tool - finding equipment in lab layouts now works correctly.

PG Records database
updated show_report to handle new faculty quarterly report form - student initiated instead of staff initiated. Will kick in automatically from 1/4/12 without impacting any current quarterly reports. Updated un/satisfactory listing to work with new style quarterly.

Exam paper database
v2 now live. Some issues with previous version exam papers not being 'closed' properly, but this now handled correctly.

Citations
created STS site for Scott in RKES. Gave sftp/ssh access to allow additional scripts/ features to be developed.

uLab
Had meeting to discuss general progress and strategy. Lab designer - switched polygon saving/ loading method to use feature_id (openlayers attribute) instead of vector id to get round changing vector id issue. Added furniture and lab layers as separate entities from equipment layer (colour coded) to allow better control/ management of lab floor plan. Can now switch between layers and turn layers on/off. Data saved to db for equipment and furniture. Added 3 labs from TIC. Changed search to include equipment items and linked bookable items in search results to booking system.

SCRIPT
updated add user to allow @ symbol in usernames (NES usernames use email address).

Exam paper database
minor updates and changes.

SIPBS website to T4
added MPharm and PG taught course pages to new version of department website.

SCRIPT
added NES questionnaire and link on members page for NES users

Radiation Records database
bug fix to stock_reports - was showing different values for disposals into bins depending if you queried on all disposals of [isotope] vs all disposals in deparment (isotope sub-totals). Was due to using the dept_ID of bins in the former vs dept_ID of stock in the latter. Both reports now use dept_ID of the stock to determine total disposal, as bins can be moved from a department to the SS bin store which was causing the discrepancy.

uLab
added lab list tool - allows user to view list of their labs and add new labs. Users affiliation is now linked to institution table, and users lab list is based on their ownership + ability to add labs to locations with which they are affiliated. Added inc_ulab_functions - holds functions to manage user affiliations. Updated edit panel in lab designer to allow icon selection/action for adding polygon, regular polygon, move item, modify item, select item. This appears to have introduced an issue when using modify polygon, updates the vector_id of all the polygons, causing their attributes to be orphaned in the database. Will need to work out what is causing this and either stop it from happening or use another method to tag each vector item and its attributes.

VirtualBox
started to migrate all my VMs from Parallels to VirtualBox, as the old version of Parallels I have is getting too flaky to be reliably used.
