On submission pages, e.g. the "Submit a Derived Work" page (mydomain.com//cchost/submit/remix), "colloborating" should be "collaborating". The misspelling originates in line 116 of ccHost/ccskins/shared/strings/all_media.php:

$GLOBALS['str_feat_list_any_collob'] = _('List any colloborating artists (Hint: NOT YOU)');

and can be fixed by editing the line:

$GLOBALS['str_feat_list_any_collob'] = _('List any collaborating artists (Hint: NOT YOU)');

Consistency suggests changing the variable name from "str_feat_list_any_collob" to "str_feat_list_any_collab", but of course this would require changes to a variety of files and might introduce some fragility to various upgrade or repair situations...?

Discussion

  • Submission page before all_media.php change.

    the 'real' fix is easy enough to maintain backward compat

    $GLOBALS['str_feat_list_any_collab'] = _('List any colloborating artists (H
    int: NOT YOU)');
    $GLOBALS['str_feat_list_any_collob'] = $GLOBALS['str_feat_list_any_collab'];

    I think it's safe to assume there are many (many) more typos around, I'll wait a little longer to collect these and then knock them back as a group.

    thanks!

    eh, assuming the spelling is correct in the string itself 'collaborating artists'

     
  • I'm pretty sure 'collaborating artists' is correct. :)
