#1240 closed new feature (fixed)

Status message on all pages

Reported by: micha Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: new design bugfixing
Component: FrameWork Keywords: status messages


We need a way to display status messages on a promiment and never changing spot. We should 1) show logged in member's own status if it differs from 'Active' and 2) show post messages from forms and other information that is useful and needs to be seen right away.

Partly this ticket is a bugreport because currently you don't find your way through the website as a member in NeedMore?- or Pending-Status.

  • follow_up changed from none to test

first version in r8649, please test: Log in with an account that is in NeedMore?- or Pending-Status or Signup (after signup you're pending). Look if you see a message on top of all the BW Rox pages (the admin or volunteer pages don't matter at this point). Try if you can successfully log in and log out.

I tried to sent a message and write a forum post. Both are not possible (which is the way as it should be, right?) For send message, i got an error box, without translated text. Trying to post in the forum directed me the startpage.

  • follow_up changed from test to test on alpha
  • freq_reported changed from 2 to 3

Please test on alpha using the following login: testpending / password

You should see a message on top telling you about the current procedure

I logged in with "testpending" i can see the message on every page, I tried if it's possible to post a comment to somebody, that works (should it be like this?), but now there is a different problem..... see #1263 (sorry micha).

Hey, no need to feel sorry for creating a valid ticket ;)

Fortunately the problem you mentioned is not related to this ticket (status message). We definitely have to make sure that we can delete/edit comments if that is part of our policies but that's not working since a while already.

We should try to optimize the status messages in my opinion. Could someone please review the content of the status messages and in case improve?

For NeedMore?-Status: "You won't be able to use all parts of the website until you complete/correct your personal data. <link>Update it now</link>. If you have problems updating your personal data, <link>contact the volunteers</link>!"

For Pending-Status: "Our volunteers are currently checking on your registration data. Please be patient until you're approved as a full member. Right now you won't be able to use all features of the website. If you face any problems, <link>contact the volunteers</link>!"

Ok, I asked Jared to improve the texts. They are now on alpha. Can I move this to live? I would put other stuff (the general way to deal with pending/needmore members) into other tickets..

  • follow_up changed from test on alpha to release

Well actually i said because i posted a bad comment to you (changed it to good meanwhile) As this ticket is only about the status message, i would say it's ready to move it to production.
