Testing

M

erry meet and welcome to the test edition of Schola's website! This version of the site is used to try out new add ons or layouts.

We keep two copies of the Schola website, one for the public and a copy of that one over here at Test. If we break things over here on Test it's merely annoying. Do it on the 'live' site (a.k.a. Production) and the fur will fly. To see what we're testing use the menu above. To return to this page, click on the OPS logo in the upper left of any page.

At the moment we're doing ease-of-use testing, including new design layouts we hope will be easier for new and returning students to navigate. If you were looking for the production site, it's over here...

Testers' Work Order:   ♦  Test site for ease of use and find-ability

  1. What does a visitor most need to know when cruising into the site? Is it or a clearly marked link to it visible on the front page?
  2. What are you most likely to want to know if you cruise into the site? Is it easily found?
  3. Many articles have inconsistencies in font and size which I'd like to find & fix.
  4. As they are added I need the tires kicked on Blogs, FAQs and Online Resources

P

roduction: is why our team exists — any problems there are our first priority!

  1. Currently there are no critical issues in Prod.

 

Test: Never allow Production to upgrade Joomla without testing it here first!

  1. S5_box stops the menu pulldowns, login system. replace with something else.
  2. Rebuild the front page  — DAS
    • Indicate our "course stacks",
    • Replace the At-a-Glance pages with category blogs
  3. Seminar Manager — DAS
    • All of Our Courses sorts alpha, but not by other headers <-  known bug, "soon" to be fixed 
    • Course description layout CSS has reverted, re-sort this to show time
  4. New Content — DAS
    • Add a set of policy pages;
      • privacy policy needs cleanup
    • Add a place for links to online resources of interest to students e.g. YouTubewebinars, Wiki articles, other topical pages.
