Re: PDF previews on composition page

what about a system like they have at IMSLP, where a preview image is about the size of a postage stamp but enlarges when you scroll over it? This looks perfectly doable (with a little help from site administrators to make changes to Common.css), thank you for mentioning it. I will have to think ab...

Re: PDF previews on composition page

I am rather disillusioned and fear a maintenance problem. What should a usual CPDL-updloader do if a error is found and therefore a new version has to be uploaded? I would not know how to update the preview. 1) My impression is that most editions are "one shot": uploaded once and never updated. If ...

Re: PDF previews on composition page

At the very least, the CPDL number and Editor's name should appear, along with the ScoreInfo, beneath each preview. Here's another processed page, with the editor and CPDL number displayed: http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Chiaro_sol_di_virtute_/_Al_chiaro_suon_d%27i_dolci_accenti_(Andrea_Gabriel...

Re: PDF previews on composition page

OK, so I have gone and added previews to a random recently changed page: http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Gressus_meos_dirige_(Orlando_di_Lasso) Any ideas for improvement are very welcome. By default, I'm going to continue in this fashion. For reference, here's the code I used: https://github.com/...

PHP notice in api.php

Hi, I've tried to use MediaWiki API to edit pages, and this was the response I got for the edit request: {"edit":{"result":"Success","pageid":189178,"title":"User:AlexMyltsev/previews split","contentmodel":"wikitext","oldrevid":880001,"newrevid":880002,"newtimestamp":"2018-02-13T01:21:29Z"}} Notice:...

Re: PDF previews on composition page

Would it be possible to have either (a) the editions listed at the top, kind of like a concise table of contents the way it appears now, and then have the more verbose version farther below Yes, this is easy to do. Here's how that might look: http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/User:AlexMyltsev/prev...

Re: https://cpdl.org

We have been and are continuing to work on this. As I mentioned back in 2016, setting up HTTPS is a matter of half an hour. I can only repeat my offer: whenever an administrator of CPDL can spare an hour of his time, we can walk through the process together, step by step, and just make HTTPS work. ...

Re: PDF previews on composition page

To me, this looks much more confusing: where is the user supposed to click on to download the score? Right on the preview. Here's a test page for you to try: http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/User:AlexMyltsev/previews The preview area is much larger than the tiny PDF icon, so, per Fitts's law, it ...

Re: PDF previews on composition page

Quite often, external score files are not directly linked to the work page on ChoralWiki: one has to manually browse the external website to find the actual score file. To ensure that previews are available, and that they are not obsolete with respect to the externally hosted scores, we would need ...

PDF previews on composition page

Hi, here is the composition page we all know and love: http://myltsev.ru/cpdl/example.png I suppose that most users will open it to download a printable score, but the page does not make it too easy. You have to understand that you need to click the PDF icon, hunt for it amid a host of other icons (...

https://cpdl.org

Hi, it seems that CPDL does not support HTTPS, even for the contributor wiki. An Apache webserver is listening on cpdl.org:443, but it just serves an error page. So contributors send their passwords over HTTP, like in 2005. It pains me to see this :-). It should be pretty easy to get a free TLS cert...

Re: New structure of Choralwiki websites - November 29, 2009

Opening further backdoors may increase the traffic to a critical level, so this should be justified by the number of user visits that originate from the associated search engines. Could you please open a backdoor for Yandex? The robot will obey your Crawl-delay (http://help.yandex.com/search/?id=11...

Re: New structure of Choralwiki websites - November 29, 2009

Hello, it seems that, as of 2013, only Google has adequate access to the content of CPDL. It is able to find pages on CPDL and show search snippets ( sample query ). Bing finds pages on CPDL, but does not show snippets for them because "it is not allowed by the web site" ( sample query ). Non-US sea...
