i don't want to offend anybody here; just allow me to give some
comments about SilvaFind and my usual nitpickings;-)
could anybody please write a README.txt for this product? i know that
it's not officially released yet but i just did a few tests and i'm
almost clueless here. there is a nice form in the edit view but the
public view shows "publication time : ('', '');" and a list of links
which are from a complete different domain...
ahhh, i need to check those boxes to enable the form. what about some
notes here (most silva products have notes but not SilvaFind)? or
just add a column heading "enable" above the checkboxes? and when
nothing is enabled the public view should not show anything.
i still don't know why it shows any results when nothing is searched
for and why it shows results from complete different domains (virtual
the "from" and "to" fields are not fool proofed. i can get nasty zope
errors: DateError, SyntaxError, Unable to parse. the user really does
not know what syntax is expected.
nitpicking 1: there are mixed upper lower cases: "Full", "From", "To"
but everything else starts with a lower case.
nitpicking 2: can you have a look at the rendered xhtml code. is it
intended that some fields have a class, some not; some have an id,
some not; some have a type, some not? i noticed this because the from/
to fields are rendered differently than the other fields in our setup
nitpicking 3: empty span tags. let me cite kit here, if you allow;-)
nitpicking 4: there is an "is" missing in the sentence bellow. my old
brain expects a "from" after the "or" and then the sentence doesn't
make any sense. but i guess that this is only my problem not being a
native english speaking person;-)
"This a special document that can show a list of content items
resulting from a search with specific values for criteria or a form
to enter search criteria before getting results."
