Serv: spreadsheet output from DB

File in the /build folder called db_to_spreadsheet.php that creates an approximation of the original spreadsheet with info obtained from various tables in the db. Outputs a text file called db_to_spreadsheet.txt into the same folder as soon as the page is loaded. I'm using \t for the field delimiter and \n for the line delimiter. The character encodings are wobbly. I'm getting consistent and apparently correct results with either of these methods: 1) - right-click on View Text File link and save the file as db_to_spreadsheet.txt - Open file in text editor (tell it the file is Latin_windows_1 encoding), then set the character encoding on the file to UTF-8, save file. - in Excel, Import as text file, set character encoding to UTF-8, choose "delimited" not "fixed width", choose tab as delimiter character. 2) - click on the View Text file link, see the text in the browser window. - select text in browser window, copy - open text editor, paste text in, ensure character encoding is UTF-8 and save file - in excel, Import as text file, set character encoding to UTF-8, choose "delimited" not "fixed width", choose tab as delimiter character.

I'll document this on the Endings blog, because it's really part of that project.

ePly setup

An ongoing list ePly information.

Full documentation here, comprehensive: http://help.eply.com/general-settings/form-status

Rather than using the hcmc@uvic.ca account, create a new user with the role of ‘client administrator’ - for full powers. Other users will not get this level, usually.

Only client administrators and client power users can refund credit cards, all other roles cannot.

Creating a form creates a new event.

TCCD: Meeting, bugfixes

Meeting to prioritize bugs; fixed a bug with footnotes pointed out by GL; tried to fix another quickly but the fix seems to be incomplete. More time for this after the Keats is handled.

TCCD: wrote utility transform for issue 99

I think this is working, but it needs thorough testing, and then it can be run as part of an ant task (so that we can be sure to apply it only to the TEI files).

BreezeMap: abstracted strings, added onloaded hook

Added the hook for running a function after the HolLayer has been created, as tested with the Landscapes maps, and also abstracted most of the caption strings to properties in the hol namespace near the top of the file; that's not the ideal way to do this, but it's better than having them sit in the code until I come up with something better.
