A full changelist will be posted soon, so I'll link to that in this discussion when it's up. This discussion is meant for bugs that you find in this release, or general "wonkiness". This is the biggest change to the site that's been made in a year so there's bound to be some gotcha's. Write them down in this discussion and someone will fix them... eventually :)

Some known issues that have popped already that we're working on and should post fixes to soon:

  • very slow response on the suggestion pop-up when adding a new competitor or related product
  • an annoying scrollbar appear when submitting a new link to a report

I've posted the v2.0 release notes.

The scrollbar problem and slow response on the suggestion tool are fixed. The AJAX suggestion call is now asynchronous, and I also put in a minor delay and it's fixed.

Bugs

  • png images don't display in browser
  • new actions for rss
  • fix wysiwyg editor to forbid certain code so the website layout doesn't get messed up
  • when you edit a forum post there is a space in the header of the layout (firefox)

Wishlist

  • product tabs that behave like tabs (fewer or no page reloads)
  • ability to agree or disagree on the competitors, sort of a vote for the competitors (to "community validate"). Would work as the edit function to prevent abuse?
  • make the cookies remember some preferences automatically, favorite view for example (product list or the other)
  • top picks sub-categories displayed (top picks in "sub-cat"), instead of "in its class"
  • display an icon legend at the bottom of the recent changes page

Good suggestions, Jan.

Bugs

All of the bugs you have listed should be easy fixes. I have a question about the third one. FCKEditor (wysiwyg editor) has a "paste as text" button (we're currently not displaying it) that removes all html. Would that be a suitable solution?

Wishlist

I like these suggestions as well. Did you know that you can vote on competitors already? Click the "Vote!" link in the competitor section. The results of this voting powers all of the top picks on the site, so its very important. You can't vote on the related products by design, and the idea is that they work similarly to an external link. Related products are things like accessories and complimentary items (think hammer and nail) so it's not about a ranking or anything. However, that's something we could debate since the functionality for voting on related products has been roughed in.

bugs

  •     none I've noticed yet
  • actually just caught one - I hit backspace to remove bullet and go to beginning of line and it takes me to end of line above. I'm not sure if that's an actual bug,  but I'll put it anyway.

Wish

  • I saw the community page, and at first a assumed it was about the members, not  a "community portal" Perhaps you could include some sort of members page at the top.
