04:12 PM Revision 3473 (metacat): Cleaned up regexes used in register-dataset.cgi to support arbitrary numbers of elements for keywords. Cleaned up regexes for state selection, to omit default values. Added debug as a GET parameter, so a page can be debugged by appending `&debug=1'.

Seperated out entryForm.js from entryForm.tmpl to simplify debugging.

02:14 PM Revision 3455 (metacat): Confirmation dialag, which displays a message. Initial checkin. Intended to be the destination JSP when an entire data package is deleted (i.e. deleting the metadata file). Placed in common folder, since it is not skin specific.
02:11 PM Revision 3454 (metacat): Moved location of file from skin to common, since it is independant of a single skin. Modified most of the internal code to allow redirecting request to an appropriate destination.
02:07 PM Revision 3453 (metacat): Modified form action URL's. Removed call to map. Used shorter version of JSP syntax in forms.

ben leinfelder


02:06 PM Revision 3444 (metacat): Updated the NCEAS skin to reflect the new structure of the NCEAS web site. There is now a new nceas.xsl file that handles the XSLT transforms for both metacat resultsets and for EML documents. This file imports xsl templates from the style/common dir in order to render the results table and EML document within an HTML document that follows the style of the NCEAS website. This required refactoring the original resultset.xsl and eml.xsl files in style/common so that the use of iframes can be easily eliminated.
Items still TODO:
test visual layout fully -- make sure wide tables work
refactor the PERL templates to also use an...
Matt Jones
01:56 PM Revision 3443 (metacat): Change the release tag for the EML stylesheets to be used by metacat to EML_RELEASE_2_0_1_UPDATE_4 so that the new stylesheet changes are incorporated. To pick up these changes in a local metacat build, you need to delete the files in metacat/lib/schema as well as metacat/lib/style/common/eml-*, then do a clean build with "ant clean install". When you do this, you should see the "geteml" target run in the build, and youshould be prompted for your CVS password to download the new schema versions.
Any additional changes to the MEL distribution for this metacat release should be tagged with the UPDATE_4 tag listed... Matt Jones
12:27 PM Revision 3442 (metacat): Added a refactored resultset stylesheet that allows skins to override the container format to not use iframes. The continaing skin can now import resulttable.xsl and call the result table template directly.

ben leinfelder
09:58 AM Revision 3440 (metacat): minor formatting changes

09:45 AM Revision 3438 (metacat): I changed blue corners because of display problem with Internet Explorer on Metacat Build files.
09:43 AM Revision 3437 (metacat): Changed blue header corners because they did not work correctly on Internet Explorer. The production server displays okay but theMetacat build does not display correctly so I took the round corners off. Maybe there is some problem with the difference between tablehead corners in default.css
09:41 AM Revision 3436 (metacat): changed header style to accommodate the wide table display. Made the text for the tilte align=left and the table witdh="100%" for the Data Catalog Search part.
