Display blank space in IE 6

Hi all,

Someone writes me for a unusual display

It happen only under Internet Explorer 6 (both under WinXp and MacOsX), and only if you are not logged.

website : http://commposite.org/index.php/revue

Is it a known issue ? (I've search on the forum, but did not find anything)

Thanks for all !

Hi Jc,

This is a known bug; it only appears when using the French translation. Apply the patch at http://pkp.sfu.ca/cvs/cvsweb.cgi/ojs2/templates/common/sidebar.tpl.diff?r1=1.30;r2=1.31 to correct it.

Hi Alec,

Again, thank you !

Is there a way (except installing a cvs soft on my computer) to see all known bug and there descriptions ?
(this does not seem very appealing http://pkp.sfu.ca/cvs/cvsweb.cgi/ojs2/ :)


With my best wishes,

Hi Jc,

Have a look at the PKP Bugzilla installation; it's available at http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla.

Hi Alec,

I give a try, and I think I have found the bug
http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1996

But how to go from bugzilla to cvs ?
It does not seem to have any link from bugzilla to cvs, nor information that help to find the modify files.

(Sorry, I know that it is not your job to explain me that, but if I know "how to", then I will hope not coming back here too much soon :)

Thank you again !

Hi Jc,

No problem -- actually, the bugzilla entry in question is at http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2451. There's a link from there to the patch. If you want to find out what bug a particular modification refers to, find the file in the CVS repository, and the commit log should contain a link to the bugzilla entry. For example, see the log at http://pkp.sfu.ca/cvs/cvsweb.cgi/ojs2/templates/common/sidebar.tpl.

Alec Smecher

Ok, this is my last question (promised! )

How do you determine if you put or not a link toward a patch in a bugzilla entry ?

With my best wishes,

Hi Jc,

Every change entered in CVS should be entered against a Bugzilla entry. However, you'll need the CVS tool to find out all changes associated with a particular bug, as it might affect several files; if I'm correcting a bug that I think users might need to patch, I'll generate a patch and upload it into Bugzilla for convenience. In the case of this bug entry, there is a patch uploaded. Does that answer your question?

Hi Alec,

Perfect !
But I realize that I have no choice but to install a CVS tool.

Any tool will do fine or you can refer me a particular one ?
(open source, but no matter if it is under xp, osx or linux).

http://ximbiot.com/cvs/wiki/index.php?title=CVS_Clients

CVSgui ?

With best wishes

Hi Jc,

The only GUI I'm familiar with is TortoiseCVS on Windows, which seems quite good. Generally I use the command-line version on a Linux platform.
