Hi,

My name is James Ramsay and this is my 5th task. Someone should check Google Code because this task has been marked as "Closed" rather than "Claimed".

I have completed testing in one browser. So not much longer and it will be done!

Cheers,
James

Hi,

Testing complete. Results were the same across all three broswers, hence only a single tick or cross next to each test. I have added "sticky notes" (part of Adobe Acrobat commenting) to some of the fails to explain a little more.

Amy-

I noticed a bug in the article manager with published date/time so that articles are "Published - Pending" for a long time before they become fully published. I read on the forums that this issue was still existing in RC4 and is due to JDate (I think).
Where can I find out if this bug was meant to have been resolved in the "Testing" release (the one on the GHOP site for testing)?

Cheers,
James

From my understanding, it affects all things where you can set published date and time. The JDate function gets confused about Timezones or something.

The bug was resolved AFTER the freeze you are testing.

The document the bug smashing group shares is a Google doc.

The patch is in there for the date issues.

HTH,
Amy :)

Ohk, am very happy to hear!  8)

Also, how is my "report/results" above? Can we close or should I do up a nicer one?
