[solved] annoying “Search…” in input line at tag search

 

When I follow a tag by clicking it, I enter the list of items tagged with it. I see the Looking for other tags? link and go to the
tag search [developer.qt.nokia.com] , there the (sooner or later appearing) word “Search…” fights with me for control of the input line.

…and “Search…” is a very special tag.

Sounds like the JavaScript is slow to load.

If you click this link: http://developer.qt.nokia.com/tags/?tag_search=tutorial

Equally slow?

hm… don’t know exactly, it’s slow, but tutorial deletes any input, whereas “Search…” is mostly combined.

If the “Search…” would be killed completety, I would find it more comfortable.

I’ve had the same problem.

I noticed the same thing…. In fact, took me a few times before I noticed that it would actually delete the “Search…” by itself.

Thanks. Have you already added this to the bugtracker? (when yes:) Where?

…and what about the obfuscating Uppercasing appearing at the list of items tagged with a particular tag mentioned here [developer.qt.nokia.com] ?

We’re going to make the Tag module case-insensitive so we don’t have issues like that. It’s on the list, but not for the coming release.

Marius, please have a close look at what get when you click on a beta tag:
Beta [developer.qt.nokia.com]
(the uppecase Beta in the page title dosn’t matter at all)

You’ll see this line on top of the page:
Content tagged with Beta Looking for other tags?

The uppercase Beta following the phrase “Content tagged with” is my problem.
…I cannot believe that this little bug has to wait for a further release, or…

That is indeed a minor issue and the fix for that has already been committed to our git repository. The change was from:

  1. $tags[$key] = ucwords($tag);

to

  1. $tags[$key] = $tag;

We release a new version of DevNet every two weeks. Should there be critical issues in between releases we of course push them live right away.

I know it looks like a quick fix that could be pushed out in 5 minutes but – as many developers are sure to know – in the long run it’s better to have a good release process and not touch the live environment too often1. Even trivial things can surprise you.

We typically fix 20-40 issues per release and by doing it in this bi-weekly fashion we ensure proper testing and some order for the release manager and the developers.

1 Actually, one day, we want to do continuous deployment [toni.org] but we’re not there yet.

How good, that I insisted in this point ;) …and it improves the performance :)
