#77 closed defect (fixed)

Confusing/cumbersome root path link in vdrive web view.

Reported by: nejucomo Owned by: somebody
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.5.0
Component: code Version: 0.4.0
Keywords: usability Cc:
Launchpad Bug:


The path display in the vdrive web interface contains a link to each ancestor in a given path.

Yet the root link (always the first slash) returns to the main client page whereas I expected it to point to "$CLIENT_URL/global_vdrive/" for consistency.

Also, a single slash is a very small area to click, perhaps this could be replaced with "<root>/" or something similar.

yeah, that first-slash thing is a bug.. I threw in the ancestor links just before the release, and didn't notice that one.

I kind of like the <root> idea, although the question is which is more important: to be able to jump to the root directory in a single click, or to have that /foo/bar/blah.txt string be cut-and-pasteable into the upcoming command-line interface.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

This one has been fixed with the new source:docs/webapi.txt -based web page. Now the first component of that path line is either <global> or <private>, and I think I fixed the bug too.
