ANU painting postgraduate blog

Just another weblog

Scan Future Readings

picture-7Image from A Tiling Database.

As you see I’ve been able to include Kabir’s  text; The Magi and the Desi on the blog but not Kerry’s; Ornament and Abstraction. I would like to put all future readings on the blog. This way everyone including off-campus students can easily access them and they remain for continued reference.

Texts would need to be scanned to a disc as a pdf. The scanner in the Painting office could be used. I haven’t yet checked with him but I think Kabir would advise if you need some help.

Jude and Ella are choosing texts for Fri 29th May.

The following reading group is not until Fri 31 July, Vanessa is providing the text for Group 2 but I don’t have a name for Group 1….Viv

  1. Hi Viv,
    The trouble you are having with your images overlapping the side bars is due to the images needing resizing in photoshop before insertion to fit the narrow width of the blog field.
    Maybe an alternative theme with more room for images in the post field would suit the site better. Cutline is a good one. I am still happy to be a co-admin person for the site, you just need to change my settings. I have a scanner at home if you would like me to scan in Kerry’s reading to create a PDF. It needn’t miss out on being accessible for comments.

  2. That’s really strange because the images are fine on my computer at home so I don’t know what you mean by saying they overlap the side bars. I actually sized the image to fit. It actually looks beautiful on my computer. Or are you talking about my blog? it looks fine too.
    I think we should sit down together and work out what’s happening.
    I thought you could put a scanned reading on as an author. It says authors can upload files. Anyway I’ve changed you over to editor see if that role enables you to do it. It should according to the description. If not I’ll change it again.
    Talk to you soon.

    • Adam said editor is simply being able to edit posts rather than admin which can change settings on the blog. Do you know if Kerry is planning on scanning in her readings? I haven’t actually done it just in case someone else already has.

      • Hi Vanessa and Adam
        Kerry may not as she’s already done all the photocopying and distributed them. I’ve posted them to off-campus people.
        Kabir scanned his and I put it on the blog. its pretty straightforward.

        I’ve been following the information in the SUPPORT section which is reached from the dashboard from the drop down menu under ‘My account’. Here is what it says about User Roles; There are four roles: Administrator, Editor, Author, and Contributor.

        An administrator can do everything. Complete power over posts/pages, comments, settings, theme choice, import, users – the whole shebang. Nothing is off-limits, including deleting the entire blog.

        An editor can publish, edit, and delete any posts/pages, moderate comments, manage categories, manage tags, manage links and upload files.

        An author can edit, publish and delete their posts and they can upload files.

        A contributor can edit their posts but cannot publish. Once a contributor’s post is approved by an administrator and published, however, it may no longer be edited by the contributor.

        I’ve switched you to editor so just to humour me could you have a go at uploading the scanned file. I’d like to see what the different roles are actually able to do
        Authors should be able to upload files according to the above.

        Gosh! Plenty to learn

  3. Hi Vanessa,
    I’ve got a large screen at home and i tested by pulling the corner in to make the window smaller and sure enough the image of tiles didn’t ajust. Are you on a large screen?
