Website Authorities

Postby stephengoodall » Wed Mar 11, 2009 9:42 pm

Hi

Could somebody with the website sjills please give the user "totalkunst" editing authority for the grants pages of the website? I need to make amendments re the decision at the last FWG and update the list of grants awarded.

Many thanks in advance,

Stephen.

Ask milk or Duncan if you catch them. I have no luck getting the web crew to respond via the BB.

Milk: The problem is that I wanted to fix the website months ago and it could have been done but I couldn't get any response back then (and I really did try).

I spoke to my Mum on the phone today and she said she'd been on the Forest website and she found it really difficult to use. She said it was badly laid out and the navigation was awful and I have to say I agree with her. The sooner we get the new site up, the better.

i think it should have a deadline to go live , like 1 month or even live now. the basic things to get going is the events being posted on to it . possibility in front page splash like the old web site . the current events thing looks weak but its a start .

it important to get people using it quickly and find out all the problems . all the text needs to be updated and parsed for mistakes . it says we have a screen printing facity , i would say not yet . ect

milk i dont have seem to admin access , i can create content but not able to edit anything else .

one thing needing dealt with is the 'event views' system that would allow flyer/poster/images of upcoming events to be displayed on the front page. this is one of the last important-for-us things that hasn't officially been ported to drupal 6, though there's a hack patch that i'll look at implementing very soon.

whoopsy, added the role to your account in a rush before heading out and selected the wrong one but i fixed that a couple of days ago and see you've made use of it since :)

Is it possible we can get rid of Drupal's fascist password restrictions? It's far too heavy handed. From what I've read up it used to have settings in Drupal 5 but the way they integrated it into the core thing of 6 took the settings away, forcing super strict password forming. I think fixing requires hacking the php code.

Case of geek obsession with security way out of balance with usability.

i've got the event view installed and displaying event poster images on the front page.

you only have to include either one upper-case letter, a number or a non-alphanumeric character for a password the site will accept. that is way not super strict password forming requirement, no?

that would be fantastic if required. have you used Drupal 6? and again, please register on the new site, thanks :)

That is so way super strict! And I think it has to be a number AND a non-alphanumeric. It's going to be a world of password forgetting.

It very much annoys my technical aesthetic sensibilities that they took away the option.

I'm with Duncan on this one. People are stupid and will forget passwords. They can reset but eventually will get irritated and bitch at us till we change it.

my engllish was correct - it's not both, it's just one of those :) i'd rather people were forced to use something you couldn't find in a cracker's brute force dictionary login script. i don't want the potential for someone with publishing or editing rights to be able to set a bad password and allow someone with a grudge against the forest to use this flaw and do bad things. if anyone forgets their password, that's their issue - there is a perfectly good 'forgotten your password?' route for anyone who does, and i'm sure this would help in the mindset change in web noobs towards the importance of not forgetting such important details.

Ok, I'm not sure if it's changed since my first go but more thorough testing says:

It does complain if you don't include digit AND punctuation.

BUT, it doesn't enforce it, at all. It appears to complain, but if you ignore it it'll let you have whatever. Happily accepted the password 'tree'.

I agree it needs to be reasonably fussy, but I would drop the punctuation requirement.
