Yep, this is the reason for taking out the categories and locales -
sorry I forgot to mention that! Also, in the future if OpenGuides is
enhanced to take note of the "Closed" category, I can write a script
to go back and pull out the old categories/locales and add them back in.
(Kake, I think you said we'd also be able to add
something to the
template and/or CSS to make it really clear that a thing is closed?
Yep! The plan is to put CSS classes in one of the divs (probably the
"content" one) for each category (and locale?) that the page is in.
So for example the Jam Factory page would have something like:
<div id="content" class="cat:baby_changing_facilities cat:free_wifi
cat:restaurants cat:wifi loc:park_end_street loc:west_central">
and then in your CSS you can style any of those classes individually.
I will implement this in core OpenGuides unless someone points out a
problem (I'm going to copy-paste this to the dev list).
I'm assuming we use our judgement & common
sense as to how many levels
of "old occupant" we put in the summary...? Otherwise eg Wok & Roll
would have to say "Chinese restaurant on Woodstock Road, formerly Wok 23,
formerly Just Friends, formerly Friends" etc etc. :)
Yep :) Though there's no reason why Wok & Roll _can't_ have all that
in its summary! The summaries are only displayed in the search
results, so they can be long if appropriate.
A) Another question about scope occurred to me when I
realised there were
pages like these kicking around in the openguide:
Leaving aside the fact that they're wildly out of date, are they within
scope? I think there is such a thing as a 'gay pub' (or 'goth pub' for
that matter) & it's useful to record that sort of information, but I
feel that trying to provide a "guide to gay (or goth) life in Oxford"
is very subjective & might be best done elsewhere. Not sure though...
I think it's best done elsewhere.
