AT will be starting work on Tarr, so I've added him to the SVN users, and reorganized the repo so Nostromo and Tarr get different folders. I've written a more elaborate set of SVN instructions, and when AT has Oxygen set up on his laptop, he'll spend some time working alongside KT to get familiar with the workflow.

LSPW and I have been trying to track the history of Boréal and how it relates to the Grad colloquium. This is what we learned:
LSPW will create a new page in current_students/graduate which has an accordion with one section for each year; the introductory material for each year can be copy/pasted from the index.php files, and links to the articles listed.
Got a pic of the speaker from KE, and added it to the site; worked fine on the www-dev location, but the www location kept showing the old page until I deleted the file, loaded the page for a 404, then uploaded again. Strange.

At PAB's request. And some preliminary discussion of moving it to Cascade.
Final tweaks received from department, and nav plan submitted to JS.
Long discussion with EDR about possible approaches to encoding rhythm. I think we should use something like this:
<metDecl xml:id="fr_ip" type="met" pattern="AAT:AAT\|AAT:AATA"> <metSym value="T">syllabe tonique</metSym> <metSym value="A">syllabe atone</metSym> <metSym value="|">césure</metSym> <metSym value=":">pause métrique</metSym> </metDecl>
and then tie
<l> tags to the specific
<metDecl> using the
@met they match. This would make for nice stand-off markup. We should probably actually replace the pipe with some other character that doesn't need escaping, for convenience. But looking at the Guidelines, you can't actually point at a metDecl; you have to reiterate the pattern in the
@met attribute. I've already found and reported one bug in the source for the French example of
<metDecl>, but I think bit of the GL needs a more serious look.
To get this bit to work your user has to have access to the adminstration / account settings / order settings area.
1) provide the URLs for working pages in each of the Approval Redirect: and Decline Redirect: text boxes. I think those URLs can be to either pages hosted within the beanstream account or on your server - I've only tested the former so far.
2) uncheck the Require hash validation checkbox
3) check the Include hash validation checkbox
4) click the update button at the bottom of the page
I've created a simple shopping cart, but when I try to use it to buy, I get a "hashvalue missing" error. I had a similar problem with a form hosted on their service buy created by me and solved it by including a hashcode in the submission string as the documentation suggested.
I don't see how I'm going to be able to inject a hashcode into the submission string produced by one of the forms on their shopping cart, and there's no mention of handling hashcodes in the shopping card documentation, so I've written to RE to find out what to do.
I also created a simple page on my account on the UVic server which invokes the shopping cart and passes in the item I want to buy. That works fine, but if I then go on to try and actually buy the item, I get the same error as detailed above.
The issue with the simple form is that you'll have to write a lot of code to deal with various kinds of situations (errors, user changing their mind about items or quantities, etc.). I'm hoping the cart takes care of some of those hassles. First test is a cart using pages hosted on their server, then I'll try a cart with as many of the pages as possible (likely the product pages) on the Malahat site.
First, you've got to get the finance people to create a test account for you with the beanstream service, if you haven't got that set up already as described in the post on how to get going with a simple form.
Robert Elves has been my contact.
That account's permissions have to be set so that it has full access to the configuration / shopping cart and configuration/inventory areas.
I suspect strongly that you'll also want access to the configuration / shipping area too, but I haven't got far enough to know that for sure yet.
The procedure for the Simple Shopping Cart is described here: https://beanstream-manuals.pbworks.com/f/BEAN_Starter_Cart.pdf
I found it pretty straightforward to implement, other than I'm not sure how to rearrange the order in which the categories appear, and I'm not sure how to handle the various shipping charges the Malahat charges (e.g. the first item in any category attracts a higher price than subsequent items in the same category).
Spent the morning turning the navigation plan for PAS into a spreadsheet; sent it to the team for comments before submitting it.
Met with folks from the dept, and worked through their spreadsheet. I'll turn the results into another spreadsheet on Monday, and we'll get it submitted ASAP.
Hérodiade Scène took a long time because of its speaker headings and line indents, but most of the rest were quite rapid. 47 out of 77 poems have now been processed into XML and HTML.
