47 of 10 lines of pre-context. (example is IMAGE_MOGRIFY refentry). In those
48 cases, resize area of the context report so that it appears as one

93 - CVS page:

95 and locally
96 - How to deal with Safe
97 Programming guidelines doc - integrate with programming style. Advise
98 programmers of choices to make in order to make their code play well with
99 IC - for example, if they want to have a field in the DB for images,
100 advise them to name the column 'image' because other tags (they might or
101 might not later use) take that as default value. etc...

133 - Check if redhat/tarball paths are correct

135 - Fix ImageDir and include one picture for example
136 - <Racke>I name three things that IC users often didn't acknowledge:
137 namespaces (CGI, Values, Scratch)
138 parsing order ([L], variables, lists) - interpolation
139 inventing syntax doesn't buy you anything
140 IC is _not_ a programming language
141 - how to delete item from cart in all possible ways
142 - give examples for the tasks in 'do yourself' section (in progress)
143 - give good practices about filtering, security
144 - see problems from old docs/TODO notes on iccattut

181 Community-contributed usertags (was usertag.pod before 4.7.0; too messy)
182 icstart - Getting Started Guide
183 * FAQ for each demo catalog (foundation, construct, barry, artstore)
184 * FAQ for each database (DBM, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle)
185 * FAQ for each payment processor (CCVS, Cybercash, Signio,, etc.)
189 http://host/cgi-bin/cat?mv_pc=RESET (clears it, for debugging)
190 Otherwise mv_pc does double duty as a cache foiler, and is a meaningless,
191 incrementing integer.

196 Switch to new payment settings instead of mv_cyber_mode etc.
197 To add
198 Discuss profile.order verification options like 'zip=zip' and then explain why we don't actually use that one much unless it's for a U.S.-only store
199 Problems?
200 [on-match] gets used if search returned no results on an empty search string. Why?
201 Doubled-up CC verification errors:
202 No error message is given in [error] if required form variables weren't passed at all (vs. being simply empty)
203 No error message if profiles.order can't be found
205 Discuss using images (from old mvdocs):
206 A public Web directory for inline image graphic files is needed. Interchange does not serve the images, only the HTML tags calling them. A useful convention is to place all buttonbars, backgrounds, and icons in the /images directory, with the catalog items located in the /images/catalog directory. Regardless of the directory structure, an I<absolute path> must be used. Relative paths are unacceptable. Use the I<ImageDir> directive, which places that as the absolute path in front of all relative IMG and INPUT SRC, and BODY, TABLE, TR, TH, and TD BACKGROUND specifications.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
