script_v4

Friday 26 June 2009 04:03 pm

IMB-glasgow
minor updates to site layout and news page

SCRIPT v4
added new script type 'scenario' to add/edit Rx, showTest etc. Can now create and view/ mark scenario style questions. Need to sort out marking scheme and storage of marks/ marks viewing (user/class-wide). Added manageDrugs tool - allows entry of drugs used for scenarios.

help
updated main help page (for not-logged in users) to link to the help wiki. Made some minor tweaks to wiki pages.

interface
minor tweaks to oracle interface scripts auto-grabbing programme/degree info

inc_auth

Thursday 25 June 2009 03:35 pm

updated inc_auth script so that it is case-sensitive for usernames. mySQL is not case sensitive when doing string comparisons, so Ian = ian = IAN as far as it is concerned. Users could enter their SPIDER username in any of these formats, and the auth code would accept them. However, other scripts using PHP to compare usernames e.g. for determining which users can view a student record in the PG database are case sensitive, resulting in some staff unable to view students they should have been able to.  Changing the query in the inc_auth from

FROM users WHERE username='$username'

to

FROM users WHERE BINARY username='$username'

sorted the problem - it forces mySQL to do a case-sensitive match, so using the 'wrong' username now results in a failed login.

recent updates

Friday 19 June 2009 04:00 pm

PG DB
added FT/PT to student record (grabbed from Registry data). Updated a few of the interface/oracle scripts so that they pass this information into the SPIDER tables.

SCRIPT
updated SCRIPT website to latest version of template engine. Updated tutor tool to use latest version and improved CSS for 'signatures'. Added manage test tool for staff users to created their own tests. Added Aston based addresses. Added clusters to better handle different institutions (separation of tests, results, localisation)

Template site
updates and fixes to user manager. Added logo as a config option. Fixed auth.php and login/out.php to correctly generate different sessions for different sites (was causing logout to all linked sites instead of just one site). Added active status to block user expired accounts. Fixed document store/ file manager scripts and image browser. Updated email tools to use correct headers/ sending config. Made meetings/ news configurable on/off. Updated discussion to use better site colours.

pageBuilder
fixed a minor bug in module page to stop error if no pages available to a module.

PharmFIT
research group website setup using template site

7 days of mostly wiki-ing

Friday 12 June 2009 05:05 pm

help wiki
made a lot of additions and updates to the help wiki, and also updated the wiki engine to the latest version

assignment multi markers
linked this tool in to the admin tools - allows admin to give marker rights to all assignments in a single class to a staff user in one go instead of having to go in to each assignment individually

inc_functions
update the class select function that shows a drop down list of classes

PG DB
updated to allow superadmin to switch departments via a $_SESSION instead of having to manually edit their own user account to switch departments. Updated programme page to allow 'push' of reports to existing student report lists if their programme report list has additions.

radiation database
updated monthly reports to include sealed sources

updates, updates, always the updates

Friday 05 June 2009 05:11 pm

activity chooser
fixed bug hiding activities from students. Fixed bug (sort of) that was causing activities to lose their class association if a staff user edited from a different cluster to the class.

PG DB
fixed display bug - HoD completion date in student report list was showing wrong colour traffic light. Added credits tab (pulls class/ exam mark info for PG classes)

EEL
added tool to allow posting of multiple exam result sets in a single operation. Fixed bug in delete results to allow all marks lists to display in drop down (was hitting old set limit).

SPIDEES
results are out! added in new page listing results and updated awards table with winners

Assignments
added batch mark upload tool

emailing system
updated the email scripts to better represent the fact they are automated messages - various tweaks to headers:

$headers = "From: $from\nAuto-submitted: auto-generated\n";
mail($myMail,$subject,$message,$headers,"-f<>");

research admin databases
changed the security to share an include/ admin arrays instead of having separate lists in each tool

poc website
upgraded to use the template v2 system
