Description

Know that this is meant to be friendly, but it goes a bit overboard and should be toned down/made slightly more formal. from the inline help on the cbox theme:

Update Away!
We have taught you everything you need to know to get started! It's time for you to post your first update. Good luck young grasshopper, we've taught you well!

History

#1 Updated by Boone Gorges about 9 years ago

  • Status changed from Assigned to Reporter Feedback

I can't find this text string anywhere in the commonsinabox.org installation, or in the commons-in-a-box or cbox-theme or infinity packages. Can you clarify where you saw it?

#2 Updated by Matt Gold about 9 years ago

I believe I saw it in the demo after creating an account.

#3 Updated by Matt Gold about 9 years ago

it was in the little tour boxes that pop up to show you how to use the site. an infinity thing, I think.

#4 Updated by Boone Gorges about 9 years ago

OK. Are there other lines from the tour that you want changed? Do you have a suggestion for this text?

#5 Updated by Matt Gold about 9 years ago

I think it would be helpful to look at the entire script and to review these instructions as a whole in a holistic way rather than tweaking messages one-by-one. CC-ing Chris on this.

#6 Updated by Boone Gorges about 9 years ago

  • Status changed from Reporter Feedback to Assigned
  • Assignee changed from Boone Gorges to Chris Stein
  • Target version set to Not tracked

I believe this is the script: https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cbox-theme/blob/master/engine/extensions/features/bp/tour/options.ini

When you've got a revised version of the script, this can be opened as a Github ticket.

#7 Updated by Matt Gold about 9 years ago

Yes, exactly. Thanks, Boone. I do think that the entire thing is in need of some superficial editing (love the enthusiasm, but we need to tone it down a bit). Chris, would you be willing to take a first crack at this? We might also ask one of the community facilitators to give it an edit if you're pressed for time. Please let me know what you think.

#8 Updated by Chris Stein about 9 years ago

I agree that this could use some rework. Thanks for the link Boone. Matt, do you have a timeframe you want this done in? That would give me a better idea of whether I can handle it or need to punt.

#9 Updated by Matt Gold about 9 years ago

Thanks, Chris. I don't think we need this before v. 1.0, which would put us at before xmas -- ideally, say, Dec. 15 or so depending on dev team timelines.

#10 Updated by Chris Stein about 9 years ago

Cool, I'll take crack at it then.

#11 Updated by Matt Gold about 9 years ago

Awesome. Thanks, Chris.

This is linked to the cbox-theme more than to the Commons or commonsinabox.org, and should probably be prioritized as such. I've opened a ticket https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cbox-theme/issues/258 and will close the current one in favor of the new one.
