Assignment Desk
[resolved] Assignment desk pitch overrides all post (23 posts)

    Hello!

    I'm very excited to use the Assignment desk plugin and I love the work you're doing. Thanks again for this!

    I am currently using the Arras theme v1.5.0.1 and when I submit a pitch from the form, that submitted pitch then appears over all blog post. The permalinks are not changed by the content becomes the pitch with a vote button.

    I'm not sure if it does this because I'm logged in while I'm pitching stories, but I can't seem to figure out the solution.

    I'll submit a pitch so you can see what's happening. I hope this makes sense. Thanks for the help!

    Hey Aaron,
    My apologies for the late reply. Could you submit a screenshot of the issue you're seeing?

    Thanks,

    I have the same problem. I write a public pitch with a "status" of "pitch" and assignment status of "new." I then write a news story and publish it. When I click on the news story's link, it brings up the pitch. The only way to display my news story is to disable the Assignment Desk plugin. Then the link works correctly.

    Hello,
    Would it be possible for you to link to an example of where this is happening?

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    Yes. I'll keep Assignment Desk active for today. Instead of the actual story, it will take you to a pitch page about a series on Ithaca Healthcare.

    Odd, I definitely see that issue. Can you try deleting the pitch and seeing if the links are properly restored?

    Deleting the pitch works. The question becomes how should pitches be assigned and set so that they don't interfere with normal publishing.

    Right. The way that it's supposed to work is that pitches of "approved" or other specified assignment status are only listed on the all pitches view. If you click through on one of the pitches, you'll be able to volunteer or comment. It's obviously not working this way for you, so I'd probably recommend not using the Assignment Desk or deactivating it until we identify the problem and can build a fix.

    I haven't ever seen this in my development environment, however. Could you list the plugins you have installed and activated?

    Just to be sure, I created a new pitch, assigned it to "approved" and it still overrides the URL of all articles.

    We are experiencing this same issue, and can confirm the bug.

    Ok some more investigation:

    No matter how a post is made, whether through the dashboard or as a pitch on the front-end, that post overrides all posts on the site, aka all active story links on the blog then point to that new post. The same is true no matter what the "assignment status" is.

    When that post is actually published, however, everything goes back to how it should be.

    I tracked down the problem. This was a permlink issue. The test blog we were on had posts in a /%category%/%postname% taxonomy, which is not a recommended deployment anyway due to load issues. Changing to a /articles/%category%/%postname% permlink structure rectified the conflict with this plugin.

    Hope this helps any others that were having similar issues.

    I take that back, after making and approving new pitches, the newest pitch still does override all other posts.

    Strangeness.

    Ed, I'll take a look at this today. Can you list all of the plugins you have installed, what version of WordPress you're using, and what theme you're on?

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    Hey Daniel. Using wordpress 3.03 I turned all plugins off except the ones recommended for install with Open Assignment (edit flow etc).

    I'm playing with it now, it's definitely a permlink issue.

    If permlink is set to default behavior everything works fine
    http://DOMAIN.com/?p=123

    Anything other than that, for example
    /content/%category%/%postname%

    All posts redirect to the earliest pitch in the database.

    Btw: I do have network on, but have open assignment deployed on the primary blog only.

    Interesting. There was another issue reported with network in the last 24 hours. I'll let you know what I find.

    Cool I appreciate it. We've got it integrated into a site that's about to go live (assuming we can get this permlink issue hashed out).

    Hey Ed,
    I think I've solved it. If you want an immediate fix (and confirm that this fixes the bug), try looking at the code and making modifications to php/public_facing.php. Otherwise, there are a few other cleanup things I want to do and then I'll try and get a release out on Tuesday or so. Sound good?

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    That fixed it Daniel. Thanks so much for your efforts with this project, they're appreciated. Our local news portal will be going live with it in about a week, I'll send you over the URL when it does.

    Wonderful! We look forward to hearing how it goes. Keep the questions and feedback coming.

    Has something gone askew with the datestamps on these messages? I haven't been logged-in here for weeks and I see I posted a message 18 hours ago.

    @ithacaindy Ed and I were working through what I believe is a similar problem to what you experienced. I'll have v0.9.3 pushed in the next day or two with a solution. If you want to attempt to modify code yourself, check out the changes I made. It'd be great to know whether that fixes your problem as well!

    Cheers,

    Daniel
