9 =======
4946375 @docelic - An easy commit to break the summer silence.
docelic authored
10 - Can *_page pragmas take ITL and not just subroutine names?
d458e36 @docelic - Documented few filters
docelic authored
11 - See that if 'crypt' is put in see also, all symbols of that name appear
12 in see also line and their type is distinguished visually.
fb2f4cb @docelic - one more glossary entry

13 - TAXAREA is not discovered in source by bin/stattree

fb2f4cb @docelic - one more glossary entry
docelic authored
16 - make glossary,howto items also appear as symbols, so that you can put
17 their names in See Also and get generated links
18 - recognize situations where contexts overlap, but in a special way that
19 first example does not see the other, but the other sees the first becase
20 of 10 lines of pre-context. (example is IMAGE_MOGRIFY refentry). In those
21 cases, resize area of the context report so that it appears as one

22 - With confs, also include source context where it is being used
23 - Enhance stuff with acronyms
24 - Under AUTHORS, include cvs line where appropriate (guides, howtos, gloss... )
25 - In vars.html, include line if it appears in variable.txt
8a8fb40 @docelic As usual, I am wonderful ;-) Here's the reason this time:

d2c6eee @docelic - Makefile: remove dependence on bin/stattree
docelic authored
29 - make regexp matching better, to properly scan parse_subroutine(); (gets
30 confused by { { in a substitution)
31 - in refs, replace "database" with "database_name", that kind of things
32 - import my hand-made test from /var/lib/.../pages/* to appropriate
33 ref pages as online examples
34 - At least in filters, <<EOR messes up the thing, only < is printed and stops

62 Ideas:

63 - In db_columns: add exlude_columns= parameter?
e976408 @docelic Evening commit
docelic authored
64 - New docs:
65 - promotional
66 - new developer howto
67 - filenames in Source contexts should also be clickable. this is longterm
68 because it'll involve perltidy and other stuff I have in mind ...
c52871f @docelic Some new items, good stuff.
docelic authored
69 - CVS page:
70 Make a tutorial : IC from CVS, Catalog in SVN, replicated setup online
71 and locally
72 - How to deal with Safe
73 Programming guidelines doc - integrate with programming style. Advise
74 programmers of choices to make in order to make their code play well with
75 IC - for example, if they want to have a field in the DB for images,
76 advise them to name the column 'image' because other tags (they might or
77 might not later use) take that as default value. etc...
78 guide on setting complete IC environment
79 explain version naming.. stable/unstable and how 5.3.0 implies next stable
80 Documentation on how to create replicated catalog online and at your
81 desktop machine for ultimate convenience.

82 - Whereever we count things, (like, valid Locale keys are decimal_point,
83 mon_grouping, price_picture,n_cs_precedes etc.) make that information
84 derived by scripting in stattree, not manually counting

e976408 @docelic Evening commit
docelic authored
90 - say that even though sometimes the code looks ugly/unreadable, check 3 times before thinking it's a bug
91 - ** Dan Browning: clustering howto, tuning tips (by Mike),
92 - jedit + IC colorization, commit-to-live script,
93 - Racke: performance docs NEEDED, clustering my mike needs funding or he
94 won't do it. CVS howto is browning.

109 - Check if redhat/tarball paths are correct
110 - explain syntax accepted in profile files
111 - Fix ImageDir and include one picture for example
112 - <Racke>I name three things that IC users often didn't acknowledge:
113 namespaces (CGI, Values, Scratch)
114 parsing order ([L], variables, lists) - interpolation
115 inventing syntax doesn't buy you anything
116 IC is _not_ a programming language
117 - how to delete item from cart in all possible ways
118 - give examples for the tasks in 'do yourself' section (in progress)
119 - give good practices about filtering, security
120 - see problems from old docs/TODO notes on iccattut
121 - files/tutorial*: s/tutorial-*.log/tutorial.*.log/

f56b1e1 @docelic Just small "managemental" commit.
docelic authored
138 Nice but not fitting the idea
139 - CVS 'ident' command
140 - Suppress inline docs (in source) for items that have xmldocs docs
141 - In source contexts, for tags, highlight tagCanon and provide <acronym> with
142 short explanation and example

157 Community-contributed usertags (was usertag.pod before 4.7.0; too messy)
158 icstart - Getting Started Guide
159 * FAQ for each demo catalog (foundation, construct, barry, artstore)
160 * FAQ for each database (DBM, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle)
161 * FAQ for each payment processor (CCVS, Cybercash, Signio,, etc.)
165 $Session->{source} bzw. [data session source] comes from:
167 http://host/cgi-bin/cat?;;thesource (old MV 3 way, still works)
168 http://host/cgi-bin/cat?mv_pc=thesource (current way)
169 http://host/cgi-bin/cat?mv_pc=RESET (clears it, for debugging)
171 Otherwise mv_pc does double duty as a cache foiler, and is a meaningless,
172 incrementing integer.
174 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
176 iccattut:
177 Switch to new payment settings instead of mv_cyber_mode etc.
178 To add
179 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
180 Problems?
181 [on-match] gets used if search returned no results on an empty search string. Why?
182 Doubled-up CC verification errors:
183 No error message is given in [error] if required form variables weren't passed at all (vs. being simply empty)
184 No error message if profiles.order can't be found
186 Discuss using images (from old mvdocs):
187 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.
