General Comments/Notes

Bugs we've found

  • publish button does not work with captcha
  • once you edit info within the link box, we should not auto update fields
  • "what you type" should be in courier, lost its formatting
  • "loading" message for preview
  • consider changing table example in dialog to sketch (see my sketch)
  • our table example does not match the default values
  • Publish dialog does not have "Briefly describe the changes you've made here"
  • include infobox with icon in TOC
  • does ctrl-f work inside a pop up?
  • ctrl-v makes the templates explode.
  • preview tab from within "preview mode" - deal with it better!
  • preview pages aren't distinguishable from actual wiki pages - run the risk of people not committing their edits (in some cases because the preview is a false confirmation of their edits
  • dialogs + minor edit + etc are missing suggestive text
  • edit links visible in preview tab mode
  • take heading level 1 out of the dropdown menu

Brain Dump

  • icon in the cheat sheet
  • showing inserted text better
  • showing article changes better
  • explore lightbox/gray/inplace help
  • can't be agnostic about what kind of template it is. put burden on template writers - provide guidlines (template info extension)
  • minor edit/formatting edit?
  • ref wizard - including different citation templates
