Alois' To do list

  • convert the Steinbrecher data style to more readable; out of 5100 Steinbrecher records, Pat has converted 1300 manually. rest needs to be done via import script, less perfect, but much faster. --- DONE --Admin 01:08, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
  • add links to Astro-Databank forum for those entries which have their own discussion thread. --- DONE --Admin 01:08, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
  • on import with cache comparison, name changes should be recognized, and the update staff alerted. They can rename the existing page before the import. This creates a redirect page and preserves page history in the wiki. --- DONE ----Admin 16:13, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
  • eliminate blanks at the beginning of biography and source note paragraphs, they result in ugly display --- DONE
  • change chart display links which display pre-created image files into chart creation links which create charts dynamically, using similar technique as in 'sendpage' feature. --- DONE --Admin 08:32, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
  • create a ignore list, which will keep out records from adbconvert output. --- DONE --Admin 20:22, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
  • create method to transfer data records from Adb wiki to 'my astro' data set of site user --- DONE --Admin 22:51, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
  • add language control so that chart export and chart display default to profile language for registered users --- DONE --Alois 14:42, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
