Found the culprit which blocked the search-index beeing build. The node 8633 created 2014-07-04 15:08:42 +0200 by admin contained php-code which lead to an php-error. Since that date the search-index hasn't been properly setup.

I've deleted that node.

I've setup a cron job on the Linux server  to run every 5 minutes to rebuild the index. That will take a few hours to be done.

After the rebuild is done I'll change the cron job to run every 30 minutes. that will be sufficient for this page.

After about 75% of indexing an error showed up, that the entered date was to big for a tablefield in table search_dataset. Field data of type text could only hold 64k of data which in this case wasn't sufficient.
Changed field data in table search_dataset from text to mediumtext which can hold about 16MB of data. After that change indexing continued.

Changes 28th of November

Made a change in the responsive.js in the Zircon theme.
There is a selector chain that  to widly works for images changing there heigth. Ensured by using a :not pseudo class, that the images from the news-block on the front page don't get affected as well as the organisations block.

Old selector:   #slideshow-wrapper .view .views-field img, #slideshow-wrapper .view .views_slideshow_cycle_main, #slideshow-wrapper .views-slideshow-cycle-main-frame-row, #slideshow-wrapper .views-slideshow-cycle-main-frame'
New selector : #slideshow-wrapper .view:not(.view-view-active-news):not(view-list-all-rso) .views-field img, #slideshow-wrapper .view .views_slideshow_cycle_main, #slideshow-wrapper .views-slideshow-cycle-main-frame-row, #slideshow-wrapper .views-slideshow-cycle-main-frame'

Deleted all tables where the name started with content_field, content_type or d6_og. These tables are leftovers from Drupal 6 and no longer used.

Reenabled Caption on Main-Article-Image

Reenabled Caption on Main-Article-Image

In the Drupal 7 version the caption of the main article images was handelt by two bits:

  • The function hook_preprocess_image() in the theme to add the class "caption" to the image tag
  • The module image_caption which added a jQuery-Function to do the work

The module doesn't exist for Drupal 8. The preprocess_image hook luckily still is available.

  • With adding the function in the .theme-file of our theme, it was feasable to add the class "caption" to an image set by an image-field when the images style is w225xh150.
  • The jQuery-Function was put into the themes js directory into the file "drupal8_w3css_subtheme.theme". There the function worked as in the Drupal 7 version.

Mission accomplished

Caution: when in Drupal 10 jQuery is eliminated, the script has to be rewritten.

Workaround for bug Non-translatable fields can only be changed when updating the original language.

Workaround for bug Non-translatable fields can only be changed when updating the original language.

Workarount for the bug " Non-translatable fields can only be changed when updating the original language"

Found on https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/issues/2955321

Created a custom module "wla_enable_translations" to overcome this issue. Code

function wla_enable_translations_entity_type_alter(array &$entity_types) {
  foreach ($entity_types as $entity_type) {
    $constraints = $entity_type->getConstraints();
    unset($constraints['EntityUntranslatableFields']);
    $entity_type->setConstraints($constraints);
  }

Duplicate page element in breadcrumbs

Duplicate page element in breadcrumbs

The breadcrumbs showed the page Element twice in the breadcrumbs. Finally I've found that in Drupal 8 the page title as the final element is handled by Drupal. The Theme D8W3CSS however has a proprocess_breadcrumb-function which adds the page-title if it's not empty. Thus the title shows up twice.

Solution: deactivating the proprocess_breadcrumb-function in the theme D8W3CSS

[error]  A non-existent config entity name returned by FieldStorageConfigInterface::getBundles(): entity type: node, bundle: projects, field name: upload

The installation shows error messages regarding no longer existing fields which partially existed back in the Drupal 6 version of spider and are long gone. The Update processes from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 however saved this old information in the database. The removal of those definitions can only be done via programming (see https://codimth.com/blog/web/drupal/how-fix-non-existent-config-entity-name-drupal-8-9, example 3).

By using update hooks in the custom module "practical_use" these errors could be removed one by one.

Implemented patch for views with duplicate nodes

Implemented patch for views with duplicate nodes

Views relationships with multi-valued entity reference fields invalidate Distinct query option

(https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/issues/2993688)

This is an issue with a lot of views in the installation which make use of entity relationships. Using the module views_distinct often results in wrong numbering in the pager which results in empty spaces in a multi-page view. This patch is a first solution for it but need further observation.

Implemented 8th of March 2022

Introduce Practical Use and Practical Use Details as content types

Introduce Practical Use and Practical Use Details as content types

Exported types "recommended practices" and "recommended practices details" into the custom module "pract_uses". By mass changing the filenames and mass editing the files these types got converted into the content types "practical use" and "practical use details". When activating this module these content types will become active and stay even if the module gets deactivates and removed later.

Issue with duration in smart Date

Issue with duration in smart Date

In forms with smart-date field types there is an issue that the duration field can't be set and gives the issue "This value should be of the correct primitive type.".

The reason is, that the default duration is not set to an integer but to an empty string. Setting the value to 0 cures the problem.

The fix has to be applied in line 230 of web/modules/contrib/smart_date/src/Plugin/Field/FieldWidget/SmartDateWidgetBase.php in setting $default_duration = 0;

Language Switcher block should only show available languages in the related language

Language Switcher block should only show available languages in the related language

Language switcher block is not handled via the "block_layout" page but called directly in the file "page.html.twig" in the used subtheme.

To ensure, that only available languages are shown, the function hook_preprocess_links__language_block() is used in the .theme file of the theme. Actually any language but 'en', 'es' and 'fr' gets removed from the link list and the title attribute of the accepted link get changed to the title of the corresponding language.

Limit years in Date select fields

Limit years in Date select fields

In the standard Drupal 8.9.15 version, there is no way to limit the year range of date fields. There was however a patch which solved this issue

https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/issues/2836054 (#50)

Even if that patch is designed for Drupal 9.3 it installed seamlessly for Drupal 8.9.15.
After the installation of that patch there are start- and end-year field in the widget configuration of the date field.

Transliteration in core not working for file names

Transliteration in core not working for file names

The transliteration-Module from Drupal 7 was moved into core in Drupal 8. There is however an outstanding bug related to transliteration of file names. There are discussions how to handle this, but the bug is still not fixed. As a work around someone wrote the module 'transliterate_filenames" to do the work. This module only has to be installed and enabled to handle transliteration of filenames in future.

View issue with OR-group

View issue with OR-group

In the view "list all spider activities" there is the block "Block remote TAS". This display has an "AND" and an "OR" group in the filter section. With the OR-group in place, the was no result even with simpler conditions. Searching through the issue list led to a core issue for views which finally resulted in a patch (https://www.drupal.org/files/issues/2020-10-14/2559961-101.patch). After applying this patch the view worked as expected. This needs to be checked when the upgrade to Drupal 9 should be done.

  • New role needed
    • Intern w/ permissions to create translations
      • ... working with ICanLocalize Translator Rolle, configured by Werner
  • Alter permissions for interns
    • so they can create drafts only for now (dont allow publishing)
    • ... but also being able to change that after 2-3 weeks
      • probably too much work for this use case, rather explain to interns, that they should not publish for now, but have content checked with Martin first
  • Martin working on a script, looking for broken links to external websites
    • there is an issue with "circular redirects"
    • perhaps we can discuss this at some meeting?

20221201 Requests by Juan Carlos on 01.12.2022

20221201 Requests by Juan Carlos on 01.12.2022
  1. Insert a disclaimer in the homepage. We used to have one in the previous versions, but I did not see it two weeks ago when we were discussing this issue. The disclaimer helps us raise awareness regarding the fact that the Portal is only for information purposes, and that any maps do not represent the official view of the UN on boundaries or territories.   If you cannot find it, I will also look for the text.
  2. At the bottom of the page we have the links to the Regional Support Offices. In the past the RSOs were presented in a “carrousel” mode so that you would see different RSOs.  Now we only see specific ones.   Would you be able to insert again that “carrousel” view to display the logos of all RSOs?
  3. In the right margin of the UN-SPIDER Recommended Practices I would also kindly request that you create an explicit entry on Disclaimer.  This would be below the existing entries.  I just want to make sure that people are aware that results are only for information purposes, and the maps do not have any sort of validation in the field as they are calibrated with ground observations, and also the issue of borders.
