-          Are these version 1 features or is version 1 code complete?  When is version 1 code complete?  Are we still writing code or are we fixing bugs, writing documentation, and promoting?

-          Nice question. Well I’m deploying many sites these days. The problem I have found working with customers are mostly addressed with the request I made. I think are simple changes that can be completed in no more than one week. If anybody can make it in the next weeks I will schedule it for next version.

 

The 3 things I really want complete before v1 release are:

-          All modules upgraded and included in core (Jakob is doing it at light speed so it should complete fast)

-          A better localization support for translators (whitepaper will follow)

-          A new installation procedure for db (we really need it because the script number now is huge)

 

-          Are the 5 panes "1 over 3 over 1", or what geometry?  Can this be implemented without breaking existing sites?

 

-          5 panes would break nothing. Not used panes (top and bottom) will simply ignored. Can be a v 1.5 version feature

 

 

Do we really need separate add and edit pages? 

-          The best advantage on having it separate if for better security (checks are performed in base classes). There is no problem on having it on same page but you have to implement your own checks.

- Are these version 1 features or is version 1 code complete?  When is version 1 code complete?  Are we still writing code or are we fixing bugs, writing documentation, and promoting?

 

- What are the final feature changes needed for version 1?  Some of the items you have here a feature changes, e.g. 5 panes, others are code-restructuring - i.e. no effect on end users.

 

Sorry to push the point, but I want to complete a release.

 

- Are the 5 panes "1 over 3 over 1", or what geometry?  Can this be implemented without breaking existing sites?

 

- Do we really need separate add and edit pages?  I had planned to implement both features for discussion within a single page using visibility and runtime label generation to change between the two.  I haven't done the code yet, and so I am not sure if the code complication will be worth the attempt to dual-purpose this page, but I figured it worth a try since maybe 60-70% of the ..ascx and .cs file will be the same.  Does this group consider it a bad design choice to use the same page for add and edit?

Subject: [Rainbowportal-devel] TODO: For Graphic engine designers

Hi folks,

I noticed we need some improvement on our graphic engine. Any volunteer?

 

1.     Allow a module can be placed on each page

a.     New module property -> show on each page

b.     When load modules on page get all modules of the page + the modules that show on each page

c.     The original view order is kept

2.     Wrap navigation controls in placeable modules (menu, header menu)

3.     Allow a layout to be selected per page (a new option added to layout list will be: keep portal default for backward compatibility and for change the whole site with a click as now)

4.     Extend three panes to five panes (not the state of the art but it is simple to do)

a.     This include the update of the TabLayout page for moving modules up and down

5.     Create a default page for Add and Edit: this should support add and edit pages of modules in controls. This will improve compatibility whit third parts modules.

 

All this task are no dependent each other so can be done from different persons.

 

Please reply to this mail saying what you want to do before actually start so other know that someone is working on it.

For start do not choose more than one task and provide an estimated completion date.

Thanks for you collaboration.

 

Manu
