Title:
Credit For Designer AND Style

Area:
styles

Summary:
I think we should be able to see the name of the style as well as the designer in the credits.

Description:
In the section marked "layout credit" on a page, we can see the name of the designer. But we can't see the name of the <em>style.</em> I think it would be great if the style name was also listed ("Modular", "Negatives", "Refried Tablet" and so on) because it would be really great if you saw a style that you liked, you could just go and grab it in "Select Journal Style". Bonus points if the style name (or even the designer name) was a hotlink, but I don't know how hard that would be to implement.

A few miscellaneous notes in the Suggestions world:

First, after a few recent code changes, it is now possible for all members of a paid/premium paid/seed community to subscribe to all comments to the community. We'd originally prevented people from actually joining [site community profile] dw_suggestions because we were using members-only posts for some administrivia, but since we also enabled an admins-only security level in communities, we can now use that instead. With [personal profile] rb's help, I've gone back and moved all the old administrivia posts to use admins-only instead of members-only, and with the last code push, the suggestions generator will use admins-only security for the autogenerated posts that each suggestion prompts, so (long story short), you can now all become members of [site community profile] dw_suggestions to subscribe to all comments if you'd like.

If you want to do this, first join the community, then track the community. If you're a member, the "Someone comments in [site community profile] dw_suggestions, on any entry" tracking subscription will be visible.

Caution: it's a highly spammy option. (I had to create a separate filter for it in my email.) You'll subsequently have [site community profile] dw_suggestions as a posting option, but please don't use it; all posts should still go through the Suggestions Generator. I will continue to reject posts that are posted to the comm directly. (Using the suggestions generator not only auto-adds the spiffy poll, it creates an admin entry that contains a post-to-Bugzilla link that helps me out immensely.)

Next, a reminder, for those who are new to the [site community profile] dw_suggestions process: Both the polls in each suggestion entry and the discussion in comments to each entry aren't a sort of majority-wins idea. When going over suggestions to see which ones should be added to our bug tracker, I use both the polls and the discussion as a guideline for how much people want (or don't want) a suggested feature or change, but it's not the only thing I use. So, you should be honest in both your poll votes and in your comments, but if either isn't slanting the way you'd prefer, it's not necessarily a sign that the suggestion will or won't get implemented.

You might want to check back over the admin tag for some other discussions about how the process works, including discussion on options (and why they're not always a good thing) and how we prioritize things.

And finally, some stats:

Total submitted suggestions: 702
Total processed suggestions: 638
Total not-yet-processed suggestions: 64
Total rejected suggestions: 131 (20% of processed, 18% of total)

Title:
Name Layout designer as well as Theme designer in Layout Credit module

Area:
styles

Summary:
At the moment, the Layout Credit module shows the name of the person who made the theme, but not the name of the person who made the layout itself (unless they happen to be the same person). It should show both.

Description:
Background: Settings made in a theme layer override those in the layout layer. This means that, because a theme currently only sets the name of its own author in the layout_authors variable, the name of the layout designer (set in the layout layer) is overridden and erased by the theme setting.

Solution: The easiest way to fix this is to make sure that all theme layers have the layout author's name set, as well as the theme author's, so that both will appear in the Layout Credit module.

Extra Spiffy Solution: Extra refinements might involve tinkering with the layout_authors array and the print_module_credit function to add another variable--one for what kind of author the designer named is. For example:

set layout_authors = [ { "name" => "jane_user", "type" => "user", "role" => "layout" },
{ "name" => "joe_user", "type" => "user", "role" => "theme" } ];

And when those are rendered into links, if there is no "role" filled in then the label for that author defaults to text_layout_authors, which could maybe be set to something more neutral or encompassing like "Designer"; if "role" is filled in, then instead of "Designer" the label would be "Layout" or "Theme", as appropriate.

If the suggestion that the layout and/or theme name be shown in the credit module is adopted, then the labels "Layout" and "Theme" could each be linked to the appropriate page of the "Select Style" area.

Title:
"View subject" for tags

Area:
tags

Summary:
Add the possibility, when clicking on a tag in the tag list to only see the list of subjects posted to this tag and not the full entries.

Description:
When you go to the calendar view, for each month you have a handy "View subject" link that brings you to a list of the subjects of the entries posted for that month.
I'd like something that worked the same way for tags, which would make a search through the entries relative to that tag easier than having to scroll down the whole entries.

Can you move the "delete this comment" to somewhere else in the email rather than *RIGHT BELOW* the "reply to this comment" link?

Description:
Can you move the "delete this comment" to somewhere else in the email rather than *RIGHT BELOW* the "reply to this comment" link?

Maybe a couple of blank lines? Maybe list it first?

I think I've clicked on that link Every Single Time I've wanted to reply to a comment.
