Updates for 01 MAR 2012

Completed moving the database update screens to the administration pages.

Did some minor investigation of Mendeley. Transaction limitations really keeps this from being a viable solution. However, using a database schema similar to what Mendeley delivers may be viable. Something to consider.

Found the solution to the following plugin problem: “The plugin generated 3 characters of unexpected output during activation. If you notice “headers already sent” messages, problems with syndication feeds or other issues, try deactivating or removing this plugin.” The error message is generated when activating the WordPress plugin. By using JEdit and reloading the include file with encoding of Cp1252 instead of UTF the 3 characters appeared before the >?php directive. Removing the three characters, saving the file, then reloading/recoding as UTF-8, and resaving, and voila! No more error message! It is possible I can also fix this by changing the PHP encoding to UTF-8 (currently it is undefined) in PHP.INI. I’ll try this the next time the problem reoccurs.

I’m having fun building the scaffolding, but I need to add at least one species a day in order to get the site up and running. Today’s species: Giant Kingfisher (Megaceryle maximus).

Problem for tomorrow is to decide upon a “field guide format” that I like. Once I define my preferred format there probably will be database changes and updates to be made.
