First-time user questions


#1

I’m just importing my Movable Type blog into Typo 5.3. A few random
questions:

  1. It looks like the spam filtering only scans when comments/trackbacks
    are
    initially created. Is there a way to get it to re-scan everything
    against
    Akismet?

  2. The admin UI is a little confusing and inconsistent with article
    links.
    Sometimes they take me to an editor window where I can edit the article
    (from the Content tab); sometimes to the view of the article itself
    (from
    the Dashboard), sometimes to a list of comments that doesn’t include the
    original article (from the Feedback tab). Sometimes those URLs use the
    article ID, sometimes the full SEO URL…

The result: If I’m looking at feedback, and I want to see the original
post
in context, I have to click on the article name to see the comments
list,
and click on the article name again to see the edit-the-article screen.
That
URL uses the article ID, but I don’t know the route for “view an article
by
ID” (if there even is one) so that doesn’t help. But from here, I can
see
which categories the article’s in, and then I can go look at the real
blog
to drill down by category… oy!

I feel like there’s an opportunity for redesign, but I’m not sure what,
exactly.

  • Is there any way to view trackbacks from the admin UI? The Feedback
    tab
    will list the trackbacks, but their excerpts are just the article title
    (unless that’s only for MT-imported trackbacks?)

  • Are there any useful blogs I should follow, besides typosphere itself?

Thanks!

Great! Can we know the reason of the switch please?

This is not possible yet, but I add it to the “Maybe someday” task list.

I know, I’ve recorded every usability issue and plan to fix them when
I have some time. Admin was revamped screen after screen, without any
coherence (which sucks, because designing UI is my job)

what, exactly.
It’s planned, don’t worry

  • Is there any way to view trackbacks from the admin UI? The
    Feedback tab will list the trackbacks, but their excerpts are just

I know, it’s a bug, and it will be fixed in the next release.

    itself?

Unfortunately, the 2 most active mainteners are french, and we’re
blogging in French. I plan to blog about Typo in english too so that
people can follow me. You can follow my thoughts on
http://t37.net/category/typo/
through google translate or Yahoo! pipes if you want. Cyril’s blog
is blog.shingara.fr.

Thanks!

You’re welcome
