When Miser Project was moved to an Apache-based hosting service, there were important changes:
New Site URLs Are Case Sensitive. This results in broken links to some pages and images. because they differ in case from the actual URL of some pages. Also, the published URLs are sometimes the wrong case even when the link might be correct.
Workaround: If a link results in a "no such page" or "page not found" report, it is sometimes possible to change the capitalization of the file name and succeed.
Remedy: The site pages will be reviewed in stages and inconsistent uses of case in case-sensitive URLs will be corrected. This is a tedious process and not all defects can be found automatically.
A change to the overall Construction Structure and its consistency was not yet reflected in the Miser Project pages.
In addition to the repairs required as the result of web hosting changes, there are incomplete and inconsistent materials in the organization and formatting. As the site is reviewed for repair of case-sensitivity and Construction Structure problems, there will also be review for inconsistencies. Work items for all of the repairs will be added to appropriate work-item lists.
The latest status page will always identify where the work is currently focused and where related work items are being captured. Sections of the site will be worked through progressively until all content is at the same level and all case-sensitive URLs are accurate.
During and after the main repaving operations, the list of areas being addressed can be found in the Repaving Diary & Job Jar page. Construction Zone sections of individual folders will also have Diary & Job Jar pages of known items to be worked on. These pages can be consulted to determine whether or not a needed change has already been identified and included a list of work items.
Using Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003, the current announcement may be inserted into any number of site pages. Insertion is by using the FrontPage extensions "Include Page" web component. The FrontPage operation uses the current Include Page. That Include Page provides a single-cell table element that accomplishes three purposes:
The announcement provides a link to a document-engineering page (such as this one) where more detail of the repaving-project status may be found.
The FrontPage 2003 Hyperlinks View provides a way to know where the announcement is currently placed as it is appropriate to remove it from some pages and add it to others.
Maintenance of the insertion is performed in a single place and automatically reflected in all of the places the announcement has been inserted.
The link in the caption beneath the cell provides access to the corresponding document-engineering page and its explanation.
For an example of how these insertions are handled, see the Construction Material template article on ClustrMap Insertion.
