Essays in p2p do not show author name or blurb, so that's good, but our comments (editorial comments) still appear even for those logged in as a p2p reviewer. We need to suppress those - it should show that person's comments only, i.e. a person logged in as p2p reviewer should only see his/her comments.
It would be good if we had a page listing Books Received, with the same basic info as on the old site. (Name, Author, Publisher, Page Length, Date.) Perhaps this could be like a public version of the spot described in the "Issues" entry just below this one (perhaps they could be integrated in some way?). I think the idea would be that the M.E. could periodically refer to this page in their public announcements: if you are interested in reviewing a book for EBR, please see here, etc.
Create a page where editors (contributors too?) could suggest titles for review and add a few notes. The assoc. editors could refer to this when requesting titles from publishers and making assignments and the thread editors could consult when soliciting articles from contributors.
Joe suggested that the automated announcement of new essays be tweaked:
-It should include login info.
-It should direct you to the login page first, and then, once you are logged in, you should be redirected automatically to the essay itself. As it is now, if you click on the link in the announcement itself, and you are not logged in, you can get an access denied page.
Right now, to add a gloss, you need to click "Content">"Add Content">"Gloss," and you are taken to a separate screen. Is there a way that an icon can be placed within the text itself, that the reader can click on and go straight into adding a gloss? It's easy to forget the title of the essay once you wind up on the "Create Gloss" screen, which means you have to close that screen and start over. The separateness is also problematic when it comes to editing the gloss, because you have to sort of hunt for it in the Content list.
I ran into an issue recently where an author wanted some soft emphasis in her essay changed to hard emphasis with em dashes. This was throughout most of the essay, and I had to copy and paste em dashes from Microsoft Word.
Ewan: Sorry I was unclear on Skype. Feel free to simply delete the other issue reports that relate to this. On the author pages, please change "EBR Essays by X" to "Essays by X," with the word "Inbound" appearing below it. The list of EBR essays should appear after that. Please add a field called "Outbound," under which editors can add the names and URLs of non-EBR essays, followed by a field called: "X is currently reading" after which editors can add the names and URLs of essays not written by that author. THX, Ryan.
