#3752 closed defect (fixed)

nodes without tags should have a different color than nodes with unknown tags

Reported by: flaimo Owned by: potlatch-dev@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: potlatch2 Version: 2.0
Keywords: Cc:


i consider this a bug, because it led to unintentional vandalism more than once in my region by different users: nodes with tags, that potlatch 2 doesn't know are displayed in exactly the same color (green) as nodes without any tags. this leads users to believe, that they can delete those, because they think that they are empty anyway.

please change the way nodes with unknown tags are displayed as soon as possible to avoid further damages. i suggest to use light blue for tags with unknown tags instead of green. same goes for empty nodes, but which are part of a relation (for example the label nodes of site relations). those should have a different color too.

programmatically it can't be too difficult. do a "count" on the node and if it is greater than 0 use a different color.

A bit of reporting etiquette: don't use phrases such as "as soon as possible" to try and bounce developers into fixing your own grievances before anyone else's, unless you're prepared to help fix them yourself. Thanks.
