    G0) Stop lists cannot be saved.

    Niki: Done on ACCEHMSySM

    G1) Remove number stop list

    problem is here in Bawerk

    Title1: “That 70s show-Episode 1”,

    Title2: “That 70s show-Episode 2”,


    The number stop words list causes the problem. We remove this list.

    Niki: Done on ACCEHMSySM

    G2) Remove Duplicated Posts




    and http://syndication.economicblogs.org/apg-flaring-russia

    Also many on Swissmacro (see picture) and on Europeans.

    Nick & Rad:


    The duplicated posts must be removed.

    Adam Smith starts too with duplicates.




    1. They all get the same URL, therefore we must leave numbers
    2. You must check that URL does not exist yet for another post.


    Niki & Rad: Done on ACCEHMSySM

    Writes shit

    Rad: Done

    N1) Swissmacro

    URL are not updated for Swissmacro

    Example: http://swissmacro.ch/bahn-frei-fur-bankdienstleistungen/

    They are on German

    N18) Text Scrambled CSS Issues

    Example Swissmacro

    N3a: Stop Words


    Low prio now but needed for plugin go-live

    When I manually modify the URL, then the Stop Words plugin should not override it.

    But currently it overrides it.

    The plugin should only act when I (first) enter a title without clicking into the URL

    WordPress itself does not update the URL when I change the title, even if I enter more nouns.


    N3b) Stop Words Plugin

    Full doc on bugs for stop words here.

    Will need to run again on all blog sites.

    Niki: Done on ACCEHMSySM


    N3c) Remove duplicate words inside URL

    Example here

    N4a) Stockman: Only partial Posts

    : category missing in Austrian menu

    RBNZ: Missing in Central-Banks menu

    Rad: Done

    N5) Subcategories are not assigned

    Posts must be assigned to both category and subcategory

    Currently this works only for category. This is wrong

    Subcategories Not Assigned

    There is probably a syndication rule missing, because it work for Megan Green on European.

    This may be fixed after Google-Go Live, Important but not urgent

    New Links



    RAD: DONE on SM

    N10) London of economics:

    Low prio

    Several wrong authors (see picture), remove them from the title

    If you click on them you see that they are not the real authors, but we assigned wrong authors.

    RAD: DONE on E

    G: Add instead London School of Economics (link)


    Wrong Authors Remove from Title


    N11) Page Building Blocks are doubled:

    Economist Europe

    N12) Links Remove Bold

    All blog sites: do not get the right font. Take snbchf as example.

    Niki & Rad: Done on ACCEHMSySM

    N13)  problem with feed loading for 10 feeds/blogs.


    We do not fix because they are only 10 blogs
    1. Fixing the content on the homepage (when it is too long)

    2. Fixing the content on cat when it is too long on category Archive



    Write more details on problem into page on the RSS Grabber.

    Additional Functionality Feed Site


    1.  New and Wrong links:

    New in Macro: Charles Hugh Smith, http://www.oftwominds.com/blog.html

    DONE on M

    Telegraph Blog: Move to Cheerleaders



    3. The widgets in the sidebar

    DONE, George will later choose which category appears where.
    4. checked for empty authors and delete them

    DONE, apart from George’s work


    5. check the content, if the picture are missing

    fixing it, if the picture is not autoassigned for featured image – fixed



    8. Channels for Authors

    We also add information – avatar, social networks on the authors which are automatically added (when it is possible)

    : How do u automatically create the channels?



    9) Official Author: “BlogAdmin”   and Fondtrends


    The author is inside the text, while BlogAdmin is the “official author”.

    Same happens for Fondstrends on Swissmacro

    Example: Author Jog somewhere on the bottom

    Blog Admin instead author

    - Click to enlarge

    10. Official Author: Tyler Durden 

    Low prio

    We have a bigger problem with Zerohedge /Tyler Durdon:

    He writes author = Tyler Durden, but then “submitted by”.


    11. Fonts: Remove double H1-H3

    We prefer smaller fonts and only once the H1-H3.

    Example: Europeans

    Fonts are too big: Only once H2/H3, not more


    Niki: Done on ACCEHMSySM

    F6) We checked and added (if missing) the category logo (image) for every main category


    This needs to be done again with better author pics

    Rad: Done on ACCEHMSySM

    F7) We added the categories in the menu (because it is too empty)


    We will replace this with special design pictures later.

    Fonts are too big

    Other bugs and Features


    O1) Tweet the SEO Title



    O2) Fintool

    a website with videos



    O3) the SNBCHF icon in original?

    I created it 3 or 4 years ago,

    No this was Favicon


    O4) Text to Speech Plugin

    Low prio, yet, OPEN


    O5) snbchf/Swissmacro and redirect

    Low prio, OPEN


    O6) Yoast: Redirect with regex on .accessht

    Low prio, need page, OPEN


    O7) Centralbanks.ch user not created, (low hanging fruit)


    uses snbchf zone in Gandi,

    same as swissnationalbank.org, which is correct.

    this should link to snbchf.com
    Do we do a redirect with CNAME?


     Niki: Done


    - Click to enlarge

    O10) Icons on Follow Author

    Create new “CFA Soc”  for authors instead

    Exception: Leave CFA Society Switzerland icon for George Dorgan

    Low prio, OPEN

    O11) Follow Author: Alignment

    Important, but not urgent

    authors are always right alinted , They should also appear on left side.

    Example: akismet
    So I would like that authors are left and right, for Akismet we will need only 4 rows instead 7.
    Hence we need a param for left/right

    O12)  E-llusion plugin page.

    Low prio

    Fix HTML issues on the page and improve
