Description

There are a lot of papers in the list named “Untitled”, that is not useful to visitors browsing the list of papers. We should make the title field for papers (and potentially other types as well) mandatory.
I'm not sure how often this happens, but if we can prevent this. It looks those top papers that are called "Untitled" are empty and might have been added by accident or as a test. Either way, requiring users to add proper titles for papers would make scanning the list much more useful to others.

History

#1 Updated by Boone Gorges 9 months ago

  • Tracker changed from Bug to Feature
  • Target version set to 1.15

Agreed that this would be a good feature. I'm unsure how complex it'll be, so I'm putting in the 1.15 release.

As I thought, this was tricky to set up. I had to hack our fork of FEE. See gifs for existing and new posts. The UI is not great, but proper alerts etc are pretty hard in this framework, and it's a little-used part of the site. If the flow in the gifs seems OK with Sonja, let's call this good enough.

Thanks Boone, yes this is sufficient from a UX perspective! It prevents users from posting papers without a title and therefore makes it easier to browse the list of published papers.
