  94   Fri Aug 9 12:40:23 2002 Question Stefan Siegelssiegel@lucent.comQuestion  Edit an existing message overwrites attributes with preset values
Hello,

Is there a possibility to prevent elog to overwrite attribute values when 
editing an old message? The old values are overwriten with the preset 
options for that attribute. 
But sometimes you will preserve attribute text and /or options from the old 
message.

Thank you for your help. Regards,

Stefan

This problem must be specific to NS 4.76, I don't have it on IE, NS 6, Mozilla
1, Opera etc. Maybe you should upgrade. Anybody else made this observation? 
  92   Wed Aug 7 15:43:28 2002 Question Stefan Siegelssiegel@lucent.comBug report  problem with required attributes
When an entry is submitted with an required attribute missing one gets to 
the resubmit page. When you the click your browsers back button all 
previously filled attribute field are blank.

Is there a workaround to get the old text back?

used versions:
Elog 2.0.5
Netscape 4.76

Best regards,

Stefan

I removed also scandir() in the current version (right now only in CVS). The 
official release of 2.1.0 is planned for next week.
  90   Tue Aug 6 15:52:09 2002 Idea Stefan Rittstefan.ritt@psi.chQuestion  New beta version of ELOG, testing required
Hi,

I added many features to ELOG recently, but before making a new release, I 
would like some beta testing. In addition to the current modes of 
operation, a logbook can be configured to require a user to be logged in to 
submit new messages. If not logged it, one can only read messages. To 
obtain a new account, one can do a self-registering. In this process, one 
can also enter the email address which is then filled in automatically on 
new logbook entries.

So please go to the forum logbook, create a new account for yourself and 
try things out. If there is any problem, please let me know.

Many thanks in advance, Stefan Ritt.

Having multi-line attributes would be pretty difficult since it would break 
the way the database works (one attribute at a line). So for now, you have to 
use the text box and the reply functionality to deal with problems and fixes 
(like for this entry).
  87   Tue Jul 30 17:33:24 2002 Question momsheikh25@hotmail.comQuestion  Scroll box for attributes
Hello,
   If you have the text box turned off so you only enter attributes, is it 
possible to have a couple of attributes that have small scroll through text 
boxs of a couple of lines rather than just one line?   Like not as big as 
the regular text box but something small to be able to post a couple of 
lines in and if it gets bigger then you scroll down.  For instance if you 
are posting a problem and a solution just have one small text box for the 
problem and one for the solution.

Thanks,
Mo
