blurb attribution in new interface

While the new interface looks terrific, there is a problem with the way information about each articles is arranged. Because the author's name follows the blurb, and not the title of the article, the layout creates the impression that the person who wrote the article has written the blurb--and not necessarily the article. More specifically, it looks like 'Davin Heckman' and 'Alex Link' and the rest are authors of the BLURBS, not authors of the essays that are being blurbed.

request new password

Request new password provides one-time password/access but when you try to create a new password using this method, it requires you to know your old password, which of course was the problem in the first place. .. I thought this was fixed but I guess not.

extraneous material on Books Received page

login password double-bind internal contradiction

There seem to be some issues with the login. Here's the specific bug: if you "forget your password" (as I apparently did, though I'm not sure how), you are sent an email, allowing you to login one time, where you are given a chance to change your password; however, as it seems to be set up now, in order to change your password, you need to KNOW the password that you've just claimed to have FORGOTTEN. Catch-22.

post publication glossing

Reminder: we were going to look into writing the php shell for the glossing capability for already published essays. I believe that Ewan had tracked down a 3rd party javascript (??) module/solution. Let's get this on the queue.

Formatting of text titles inconsistent

Titles of texts should be in boldface (and if a book or longer work in italics, too). When we switched platforms much of this formatting disappeared. Recent essays appear OK, but in many reviews the bold formatting was lost. EB: Re-introduce semantic tags for book titles in wysiwyg editor.

Glosses/Footnotes appearing in body of essay

Glosses &/or footnotes are now appearing, in italics, in the body of some essays, which is confusing. See, for example, Peter Nicholls's essay: http://electronicbookreview.com/thread/fictionspresent/skindeep
