157 - Carry out GHOP unit test on the Joomla1 1.5 Test Package: Article Manager

Postby tungolcild » Mon Jan 07, 2008 9:56 pm

In this task you will help the Joomla! team prepare for the release of
Joomla! 1.5 by carrying out a systematically organized set of tests and
reporting the results.

You will carry out the tests using at least three web browsers from the
following list: Firefox 2.0 Internet Explorer 6 Internet Explorer 7 Safari
Opera

In your report you should clearly indicate which tests were passed or
failed. For example you might want to indicate a failed test by using a red
font.


Hello to all developers here..I'm Yiannis, from Greece..While exploring GHOP I found that Joomla was the most accesible and helpful for new developers...I read in the forum that these tests are very valuable for the community so I will try to do my best (eventhough the fever doesn't help me! :'( )

We have not asked for a specific format since this is new to us.

I think that should be good - it's easy to understand what you tested, the results, and your system information.

Please proceed with that format and thank you for helping the community with this very important task.

Amy :)

I am almost done. One test failed (the category sort) and i have also one question about the Order sort. After changing the number from 1 to 2 and clicking on the disk icon (save) it gives the message "New order saved" but the number on the list is not update nor the sorting works... :o

(i wish you like the layout of the test:))

Looks good - the layout looks good.

Tomorrow, we'll check into these issues you are finding. That is what we want from this process - good information. You are doing great!

Thanks!

Yiannis -

I uploaded your document to http://JoomlaPlace.org/ghop/Issue157.pdf and pasted the link into your Google Task. For some reason, we seem to be having trouble uploading work to Google. For that reason, when someone has a problem, I have been copying the work to JoomlaPlace.

Thanks so very, very much for your contributions to Joomla!. You are free to select another task, if desired.

Amy :)
