[08:56:17 CST(-0600)] <jhung> Good morning all. I have an Inline Edit question for those with experience...
[08:58:20 CST(-0600)] <jhung> Is it possible to enable / disable edit mode for simple inline edit using a separate control (i.e. a link) in addition to selecting the component itself?
[09:31:11 CST(-0600)] <jhung> jameswy: can you confirm this has been fixed and close it?
[09:31:13 CST(-0600)] <jhung> http://issues.fluidproject.org/browse/FLUID-3867
[09:51:04 CST(-0600)] <jameswy> jhung: The bug's still there, as of the current build in the demo portal.
[09:51:30 CST(-0600)] <jhung> thanks!
[10:03:49 CST(-0600)] <Smriti> Hi Guys, I'm new to fss and have a question with regard to the fluid website, I'm making some changes on it and I've noticed a bug with fl-col-flex5 which causes a scroll bar in the bottom where the icons are on the homepage, has anyone experienced this...
[10:04:53 CST(-0600)] <jameswy> ^ Justin_o (known issue?)
[10:04:57 CST(-0600)] <Smriti> this is experienced using firefox and safari..
[10:05:08 CST(-0600)] <Smriti> not sure, jess mentioned it was experienced earlier..
[10:05:14 CST(-0600)] <Smriti> where would the known issues be documented
[10:05:14 CST(-0600)] <jessm> i thought we'd seen this before – and maybe it got documented
[10:05:24 CST(-0600)] <jessm> Smriti: issues.fluidproject.org
[10:05:24 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> Smriti: not sure... does it happen at all screen sizes.. i'm wondering if there is some rounding issues.. when trying to divide the screen size by 5
[10:05:32 CST(-0600)] <jessm> but i didn't find it there on a simple search
[10:06:38 CST(-0600)] <Smriti> the problem is fixed when i put in fl-col-flex6... but icons centered... yes on all screen sizes
[10:06:48 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> Smriti: you can see from this page that sometimes the browser doesn't calculate the percentage s correctly http://build.fluidproject.org/infusion/tests/framework-tests/fss/html/2.fss.layout.columns.html
[10:06:54 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> Smriti: hmm..interesting
[10:08:53 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> heidi_: have you seen that issue before
[10:09:05 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> let me check
[10:09:54 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> smriti can you send the url where this is happening? dev or live site?
[10:11:46 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> also what system are you on
[10:12:39 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> it does sound like a weird width problem/overflow:auto setting
[10:13:07 CST(-0600)] <Smriti> interesting, it's resolved! maybe it was a resizing issues as justin was mentioning..
[10:14:07 CST(-0600)] <Smriti> actually fixed on safari, not on firefox..
[10:14:51 CST(-0600)] <jessm> i seem to remember it happening differently for different browsers before
[10:15:00 CST(-0600)] <jessm> but i can't find anything in jira that documents this
[10:15:50 CST(-0600)] <Smriti> i'm on a mac os x 10.6 and firefox 3.6.13... heidi, i'll send a screenshot... thx for the help!
[10:18:48 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> Smriti, better yet, file a jira?
[10:19:01 CST(-0600)] <Smriti> sounds good!
[10:19:06 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> thank!
[10:19:07 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> s
[10:31:32 CST(-0600)] <jessm> Smriti: let us know if you need help filing your first jira
[10:50:04 CST(-0600)] * Topic is 'This channel is logged – for details see: http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/IRC+Channel' set by jessm on 07:30:00 CST(-0600)
[11:28:00 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> hey mlam can you tell me where display:block is getting injected into each uploader list <tr> ?
[11:28:36 CST(-0600)] <mlam> heidi_: I would love to, but my computer crashed, and i'm in the midst of reinstalling everything
[11:28:44 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> ak, oh right!
[11:28:54 CST(-0600)] <mlam> I can let you know when I get everything up and running again
[11:29:08 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> np ...colinclark can you tell me?
[11:29:35 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> heidi_: It's likely from a call to jQuery.show()
[11:29:40 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> But I'd have to trace it back in the code
[11:29:51 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> ah
[11:29:53 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> Something you can also see for yourself in FileQueueView.js
[11:30:03 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> that makes sense - i've searched all the /js for "block" with nothing
[11:30:18 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> hm...
[11:41:28 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> harriswong: do you know if this is still an issue http://issues.fluidproject.org/browse/FLUID-3864
[11:42:38 CST(-0600)] <harriswong> justin_o: not too sure, let me try it on the demo
[11:43:13 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> harriswong: thanks
[11:46:45 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> Justin_o, FYI, I've finished reviewing all the Demo Portal JIRAs. All are either resolved or marked "affects 1.3"
[11:47:17 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> anastasiac: that's great thanks
[11:47:27 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> np
[11:48:38 CST(-0600)] <harriswong> justin_o: yes, reproduced it.
[11:49:01 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> harriswong: thanks
[11:49:25 CST(-0600)] <harriswong> justin_o: nps
[14:34:50 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> fyi all http://www.cbc.ca/politics/story/2011/01/11/blind-woman-court-challenge.html?ref=rss
[15:44:24 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> Is there something we can do to make the uPortal daily build function nicely again?
[15:44:42 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> I notice that all the portlets, when I log in, are showing stack traces
[15:44:52 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> anastasiac: Any thoughts?
[15:45:11 CST(-0600)] * anastasiac looks
[15:45:23 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> blech!
[15:46:15 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> I'm not seeing stack traces, just "An error occurred loading this content," but still
[15:46:36 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> I'm at a loss on this one - it would take some investigation, colinclark
[15:46:39 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> I guess I'm lucky enough to get the stack traces, at least as admin/admin
[15:46:52 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> Okay, so we need to get this uPortal daily build to a point where it's always there for us
[15:47:03 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> Obviously subject to any bugs or whatever in uPortal's trunk
[15:47:13 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> but uPortal is a big and awesome showcase for our work
[15:47:17 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> so it's great to have it to show people
[15:47:34 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> I need to send a link to someone in the federal government who is having trouble with the layout reorderer
[15:47:44 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> Our Layout Reorderer demo for 1.3 has a major bug in it
[15:47:51 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> yikes!
[15:48:08 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> The uPortal demo page is so old and crusty that it doesn't show any focus highlight whatsoever, making it impossible
[15:48:16 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> And the real uPortal daily build is throwing exceptions
[15:48:30 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> We need someone to be responsible for keeping this build shiny
[15:48:35 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> what's the bug in the demo?
[15:48:38 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> Any suggestions on who that might be?
[15:48:48 CST(-0600)] * anastasiac ponders
[15:49:15 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> The bug in the demo is that all the moveable elements are also focusable with the Tab key
[15:49:29 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> causing very bad things to happen when you try to Tab around
[15:50:25 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> jessm: Any suggestions on who might be a good person to help keep an eye on this build?
[15:51:17 CST(-0600)] <jessm> colinclark: good question. this should be a content person on a systems person or both?
[15:51:24 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> I don't know
[15:51:30 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> Here's a quick description:
[15:51:39 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> We run the only public daily build of uPortal
[15:51:48 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> it grabs code from uPortal's trunk and builds it
[15:51:59 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> undoubtedly occasionally errors will occur
[15:52:06 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> But we seem to have system problems with this thing running at all
[15:52:27 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> "systemic," that is
[15:52:50 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> It involves staying a bit in touch with changes that get made to uP's build process over time
[15:52:59 CST(-0600)] <jessm> so, ideally this seems like a uPortal build buddy plus jamon
[15:53:00 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> i'm sure athena can give us a heads up when anything big happens
[15:53:03 CST(-0600)] <jessm> is that reasonable?
[15:53:06 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> jessm: That seems about right
[15:53:09 CST(-0600)] <athena> yes, we can totally do that
[15:53:31 CST(-0600)] <jessm> anastasiac: i know in the past you've done a bit of build babysitting
[15:53:35 CST(-0600)] <athena> and if you need help configuring the build to reliably clean out the environment let me know - unicon runs a few automatic uportal builds
[15:53:44 CST(-0600)] <jessm> do you have thoughts about who best to keep an eye on this?
[15:53:58 CST(-0600)] <jessm> athena: that seems like a useful option!
[15:54:11 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> well, in our usual "you touched it, you own it" style, it sounds like I'm a good candidate! (wink)
[15:54:16 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> maybe a quick chat between athena and jamon would help
[15:54:26 CST(-0600)] <jessm> +1
[15:54:29 CST(-0600)] <athena> jessm: maybe rather than actively keeping an eye on it, it would be helpful to have something that pings the server and makes sure it's up?
[15:54:39 CST(-0600)] <athena> that way you could have an email automatically sent if it looks like it's not working
[15:54:40 CST(-0600)] <jessm> athena: also a really good idea
[15:54:59 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> We definitely get emails when builds fail
[15:55:13 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> But these sorts of "it built, but it doesn't quite work" are another case
[15:56:20 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> any suggestions for that, athena?
[15:56:42 CST(-0600)] <jessm> anastasiac: i'm wondering if this can get folded into some of the collab. you and jamon might do?
[15:56:48 CST(-0600)] <athena> maybe something that just looks at the page and tests to see if some content iis in the page? (like say the title)
[15:57:32 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> jessm, I imagine that jamon, athena and I can work something out
[15:57:42 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> sounds cool
[15:57:46 CST(-0600)] <jessm> anastasiac: awesome
[15:58:03 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> I guess I'm not motivated to fix the Reorderer bug so that I can show this guy a working example of the Layout Reorderer
[15:58:06 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> sorry
[15:58:08 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> that should have read
[15:58:16 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> "I guess I'm now motivated..."
[15:58:43 CST(-0600)] <athena> i think once upon a time we had some cron job that ran a task that visited sakai and tested for the presents fo the title, then tested to make sure CAS login still worked
[16:00:08 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> athena, our current problem seems to be the portlets - none of them are loading properly
[16:00:19 CST(-0600)] <athena> ah ick.
[16:00:31 CST(-0600)] <athena> if you need help debugging it i'd be more than happy to help
[16:00:46 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> athena, thanks - I'll have to take you up on that tomorrow
[16:00:50 CST(-0600)] <athena> sure
[21:08:04 CST(-0600)] <jamon> athena: sounds like a job for a) wget, b) monit, c) daemontools
[21:09:02 CST(-0600)] <jamon> monit would be nice, but i think it has problems starting/forking tomcat processes, so that's where daemontools comes in
