We need to move Bankside from the Streets index to the Sites index. [Later: We need to add a new Category to the Index for Neighbourhoods -- 26 May 2010. Done -- 25 August 2010.]
JJ reported that on the MoL site, when you go to the File-not-found page mapoflondon.uvic.ca/not_found.htm, the domain changes to lettuce.tapor.uvic.ca/~london/not_found.htm and some of the navigation links on that page break because of the incorrect domain name.
With Greg's help, I figured out the problem was that in the .htaccess file in the root of the site this line appeared
ErrorDocument 404 http://lettuce.tapor.uvic.ca/~london/not_found.htm
and it should have been this:
ErrorDocument 404 http://mapoflondon.uvic.ca/not_found.htm
Fixed that and problem solved
JJ reports: If you go to this page (for example), http://mapoflondon.uvic.ca/render_page.php?id=TYBU1, and click on the link that is supposed to take you to the Guidelines for Contributors (http://mapoflondon.uvic.ca/guidelines_contributors.php) you go instead to a message about the page not being found: (http://lettuce.tapor.uvic.ca/~london/not_found.htm). It also happens from the blank St. Pauls' page.
Three pages Tyburn, St Pauls Churchyard and St Pauls Cathedral had a link to "guidelines.php" rather than "guidelines_contributors.php".
I checked the boilerplate text and php it had the right URL. I'm not sure why those three instances were wrong, but I fixed them manually in the exist DB.
Then with Martin's help, wrote a query to search for all instances of 'a href="guidelines.php"'. My desktop client couldn't communicate with db, so used the JNLP client on the site:
The correct query is:
declare default element namespace "http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0";
for $t in //TEI[descendant::ref[@target="guidelines.php"]]
- Finished encoding "Pudding Lane" and posted it (Feb. 1)
- Finished encoding "Gossip and Gossips" and posted it (Feb. 4)
- Made a chart of all the streets and noted their status (posted, encoding in process, assigned, unassigned)
- Researched Billiter Lane with Morag St. Clair
- Wrote Billiter Lane essay (Morag to write section on Treswell's survey)
Tasks completed in January 2010:
- Three meetings with Morag St. Clair, Undergraduate Research Scholarship recipient
- Finished checking references in Pudding Lane article, triggering minor revisions
- Mark-up and encoding of Pudding Lane article.
- Additions to the .bibl database: about 10
The Wood Street counter needs an XML:id and idenfication on the map.
Once these tasks are done, add the code to the essay on Pudding Lane.
User reported that performance was slowed with the experimental map because the map image tiles are not cached.
Expires [Date and time the image was sent]
Cache-Control max-age=31536000, must-revalidate
I looked into the imap files and how they are created. One php file generates this:
and another generates this:
header("Expires: " . date( "D, d M Y H:i:s GMT", time() + 31536000 ));
header("Cache-Control: max-age=31536000, must-revalidate" );
JJ reported that the experimental map was not working. Martin and Greg did first bit of work to confirm the bug report, as I was out of the office. I then looked into the code and the first instance where the site attempts to make a connection to the postgres db throws the error. The connection to the db is identical to the one used by vihistory and the vihistory site is working. We've changed nothing in our code or our database since the last time the site was working. We suspect the problem is a result of the migration over the past month or so of a lot of central services. Emailed a query to sys-adin. Heard back the next day. They said the problem was at their end and they had fixed it.
For example if I try to go to http://mapoflondon.uvic.ca/imap/htdocs/admin/admin.php, I get
Warning: pg_connect() [function.pg-connect]: Unable to connect to PostgreSQL server: FATAL: no pg_hba.conf entry for host "188.8.131.52", user "london", database "london", SSL off in /home1t/london/www/imap/htdocs/session.inc on line 62
Warning: pg_last_error() [function.pg-last-error]: No PostgreSQL link opened yet in /home1t/london/www/imap/htdocs/session.inc on line 63
Could not connect:
We have other sites which seem to be working. For example, http://vihistory.uvic.ca/content/maps/imapbasic.php?map=vicbird1889 uses the same technology and exact same connection values and is working.

This blog entry records all IDs that have been created during the encoding of new pages. They will all have to be added to the Map at some point. Once they have been added, make a note in this blog entry.IDs Assigned that Need to be Added to the Map (adding to map automatically adds them to Index)

- ID STMA25 assigned to St. Mary-le-Bow (church, not churchyard).
- ID WHIT11 assigned to Whittington College.
- ID RADC1 assigned to Radcliffe (also spelled Ratcliffe)

- St. Antholin (as per Prockter and Taylor)--> St. Anthony's, Budge Row (as per Stow) [xml:id = STAN5]
Last week, I encoded and posted Paul Hartlen's page on Tower Street. Paul (and my research assistant, Camille van der Marel) have proofread the page, checked quotations and bibliographical information, and verified links.
Today, I've encoded and posted a draft of Paisley Mann's page on Love Lane, Thames Street. I await feedback from proofreaders.
Things to do:
Add the church of St. Mary-at-Hill to the map and the index of churches. Tag the references to it in the Love Lane, Thames Street essay.
Reference to St. Christopher in Ekwall quotation in Love Lane, Thames Street essay not clear. Follow up.
Note spelling of St. Mary-at-Hill (the street). Correct mispelling on street index.
Correct Tower Street page and post final version. -- DONE!
On Sept. 11, I posted the Guidelines for Contributors page (under the "About" tab). Two documents for potential contributors are linked to this page: "Contributor Guidelines: Street or Site Essays" and "Map of Early Modern London Citation Guide." Both documents are available as MS-Word 97-2003 files and as .pdf files. The link on the "blank" street/site pages now takes one to the Guidelines for Contributors page.
Other recent postings: Abchurch Lane (street page) and "The Marriage of London Stone and the Boss of Billingsgate" (Library text).
Started a blog for the Map of London project, and added JJ and MC as bloggers to this blog.
Numerous previous postings for work done on this project can be found in the depts blog, they will typically be prepended with "MapOfLondon"
