Projects & Filters working!!
Projects & Filters working!! - Southern Africa : Please note that Projects and filters are working properly at last (bug since early December). * They should now automatically refresh! * You can now mix Group with other filters. Please note that the following bugs are NOT fixed:
Please note that Projects and filters are working properly at last (bug since early December).
* They should now automatically refresh!
* You can now mix Group with other filters.
Please note that the following bugs are NOT fixed:
* The Elephant Bug - you can only use one dictionary at a time. So any project spanning several communities (Chile, Hong Kong, anywhere else VS sAfr VS UK) will only report on one of the dictionaries. This is called this because if you make a project of Elephants of Africa, you will only get the SANBI dictionary and thus Elephant observations from outside the region will not show. (see http://www.ispotnature.org/projects/the-elephant-bug-i)
* The Carousel Duplication Bug. Duplicate observations appear in the results. This will happen if you use:
= = Likely ID = ignore (which is default): so observations with more than one ID will show up for each ID made. (solution - set Likely ID = Likely ID only - unless you want observations without a Likely ID). This also applies to children if you choose a higher Taxonomic level (e.g. if you choose Diptera and an observation has been identified as a Blindfly and a Eyefly, then it will display twice);
= = If you choose more than one tag and and observation has more than one of them. (e.g. you choose Seakeys and Sea Fish Atlas and an observation has both these tags). (note, by definition this will not be a problem for filters using groups, dates,, users and habitats as observations can only have one of these).
Caution: Note as a consequence the totals for the observations will be wrong: Instead of being totals for observations as you might think, it is the total "Seakeys" added to the total "Sea Fish Atlas", so if there were 150 Seakeys and 50 SFA, then the total would be 200 observations instead of 150 (because all SFA are also Seakeys, or possibly 160 if 40 SFA had Seakeys as well).
* The Area Bug. I dont know if the programmers consider it a bug, but I do.
If you zoom in on the map then:
== the list and browse does not change to be only the observations visible on the map (this is how it used to work on the old s Afr site).
== the total number of observations visible on the map is not shown, only the total for the filters ignoring the area. So if you zoom in and only 3 are visible it still says "Showing 160 observations" (for elephant). (this is how it used to work on the old s Afr site).
