#7228 closed enhancement (fixed)

"Turn up" navigation tag -- replace with "Turn to"

Reported by: David.Byrne@… Owned by: hasienda
Priority: normal Component: WikiTicketCalendarMacro
Severity: normal Keywords: 0.11 0.12 tooltip wording
Cc: rjollos Trac Release: 0.12


I'm not sure that "Turn up" would be the normally used term for navigating to a new calendar page. "Turn to" would be more appropriate.

  • Keywords 0.11 0.12 tooltip wording added

Ok, thanks for this suggestion, mentioned in #7226 before.

Since this is relevant for 0.12 branch as well, I'd like to have at least one more vote for 'Turn to' or other suggestions, before I change this one, touching corresponding msgid in message catalogs for 0.12 too.

When is this tooltip displayed? I'm not seeing it. On the navigation icons I see the month that will be navigated to if the arrow is selected.

  • Trac Release changed from 0.11 to 0.12

I originally submitted this with release 0.11 marked, but I'm using 0.12. The tooltip appears when you hover over the navigation arrows. With the current month displayed, mine shows "Turn up June 2009", "Turn up March 2010", "Turn up May 2010", "Turn up July 2010", "Turn up September 2010", and "Turn up June 2011" in order from left to right.

In that case, I think that Turn to is better, but I actually prefer the behaviour on the 0.11 branch, which is to just show the month in the tooltip.

  • Status changed from new to assigned

I'm in the process of doing a new, still backwards compatible concept of attributes for WikiTicketCalendar, since the old schema does not scale well with growing number of options.

How about creating a switch for slimtooltip=True to get old minimal tooltips back? Or should it become default again?

Thanks for providing your feedback. On English wording there seems to be not much dispute against "Turn to", so most likely I'll take it then. But it's not too late by now. This poll will stay open until I commit a version, that closes the issue.

Having dealt with translations before in other applications. I would make this behavior ONLY show the month the action would result in showing. Then you only have to translate the Months, and not the grammar for "turn to", "Change to", "Go to" etc.

comment:9 Changed 5 years ago by hasienda

Well, translation of month names is dealt with by proper locale selection. I just wanted to build nicer, more user friendly tooltips, but as there are already two votes for the old behavior with the months name and year this doesn't look like a bright idea anymore. Reverting to old style tooltips will obsolete the whole discussion. Thanks for sharing your opinion.

[8201] does revert the disputed label text extension in trunk back to old style: month + year.

comment:11 Changed 5 years ago by hasienda

  • Summary changed from [vote] "Turn up" navigation tag -- replace with "Turn to" to "Turn up" navigation tag -- replace with "Turn to"

[8263] propagated this change to 0.12 branch now.

I'll keep this ticket open another couple of weeks to still give a chance for feedback.

comment:12 Changed 5 years ago by hasienda

Old "just the month's name" tooltips are back and included in latest versions of WikiTicketCalendarMacro v0.8.6 (branch 0.11/0.12_en-only) and v1.2.1 (0.12_intl.) with changesets [8314] and [8315] respectively.

Thanks for the response so far, that made me think and revert my changes in the first place. I've to admit, that the current/old style is slick and lean and simple, all in all a good thing. :-)

As this is available to all users now, I'll set a final 1 months period for feedback. If no serious critics raised before 04-Sep-2010, I'll close this ticket still being a reminder for a number of weeks now.
