June 3

  • Removed links to CK categories on the main CK page. These searches were causing performance issues and I'll have to engineer a better solution.
  • Looking at the CK search query to make it faster. I think.
  • Reindexed 300+ member libraries after the indexing failed because of temporary disk space issues.
  • Added localized text to main CK page while I was making other changes. The page can now be translated correctly.
  • Changed tag form item on book edit page to be an input field instead of a textarea so that members can use browser completion.
  • Fixed javascript error on the printable version of the catalog.
  • Added translation abilities to the book edit items that didn't have it.

June 2

  • Updated profile_reviews to use new caching code for the "others' reviews" section. Speed improvements are directly related to the size of the person's library. Large libraries will see larger improvements. This change was needed in order to combat performance issues on the server side.
    • the "Other reviews" section now only shows reviews from the last 60 days.
    • The cache is rebuilt every week....so new reviews of books will only show up there on a weekly basis. We might want to make this a smaller span.
  • Worked with Mike and Casey to get replication working again.
