[Learn at Home 2.0] Programs for Comet and Radaford

New programs were added for the Radarford and Comet robot: https://www.fllcasts.com/bg/programs/e3vg9p- https://www.fllcasts.com/programs/692hkz-comet-program

[Content Creation 2.0] If the course section is created with a Bulgarian title (while the site is open in Bulgarian), but viewed in English, the title is nil and it crashes

Now locales fall back to one another. For example, if there is a BG title, but there is no EN title, the BG title is used even when viewing the pages with an EN locale. The reverse was already true before.

Content now has a nil permalink if there is no EN title that the permalink can be generated from.

Content can no be created from a BG locale page.

[Content Creation 2.0] When a content picture is uploaded to content, thumbnail gets removed

The thumbnail picture is still there, but it is no longer marked as a thumbnail.

[IS, Performance]: Generate JSON Geometry directly on instructions build and store it on the server instead of obj and mtl files

This is currently implemented and we are delivering js files to the client. It was implemented long ago and this card is a left over.

[Bug, Media] Videos were not available.

We have all the files of previews and videos checked and avaialble. There were a lot of errors that are now resolved. Each video has a webm and m4v file for 360 and 720 dimension and a no dimension that is linked to 360p

[Groups 1.0, MGE 1.0, SoftwareScenarios] Move through Basic Software Scenario 2 at SP36

We have 17 things that we mush change and improve to prepare for recording tutorials for the MGE. These were listed, identified and we are currently working on them

  1. [Bug, Groups] I go to create a Groups and Create and organization and after the organization is created we are not returned back to the group. This happens when the Language is changed on the Redirect Page

  4. [Groups, Assignments] There is no help for the assigned content on the group page

  5. [MGE] Emails texts are not clear for when adding student, instructor and coordinator. Should be possible to use Markup here. It is a good place to introduce it.

  6. [Bug, Assignments] On search for assigning content it is very difficult to find course C1. Probably should be able to search with "Course C1" or something or directly choose from the curriculum the specific course for this group. There could be a link here for the curriculum.

  7. [Bug, Assignments] I can not assign content to which I do not have access, or there is something else going on. I am trying to search for course 'Transportation'" in the assign content but nothing happens, because I am not enrolled in this course and can not find it.

  8. [Assignments, Bug] Sometimes when I search for a content to assign the tranlsation in bulgarian appears although I am in english. Screenshot attached.

  9. [Sessions] I was in an fllcasts.com/ session and went to teach at school page and there all the links with www.fllcasts.com I had to log in again. This has to change. I should stay logged in, no matter what. Probably redirect is a good option here.

  10. [Groups] On the page for creating groups I have two buttons on the bottom "Save Group" and "Създай група". Трябва да е само един

  11. [I18n] Roles are not i18n on the groups page -

  12. [MGE, i18n] After creating a MGE group and going to it from a private session - https://fllcasts.com/bg/groups/755 there are strings not internationalized.

  13. [MGE] "Запиши" трябва да е "Запиши се" на страницата за записване. Също това синьо на бутона и тотално различно от всичко друго на сайта. Според мен трябва да е жълто. - no card

  14. [MGE, i18n] Текстъп You have been successfully enrolled in the group трябва да е на български

  15. [MGE, Groups, Organizations, Bug] After enrolling in the group I see the breadcrumb "Lux 5i5 organization > 1903 Lux 5i5 Organization" and when I click on the "Lux 5i5 organization" I get an access denied. This should not happen. I should be able to see the organization and all the groups this organization has.

  16. [MGE, I18n] Когато натисна Register при MGE група виждам прозореца за регистрация на английски. Трябва да е на български.

  17. [MGE, i18n] Когато натиснах забравена парола и бях на български, получих мейл който е на английски за забравената парола.

  18. [MGE] When I make a mistake on the page MGE->Register->Create an account than the dialog stays up and can not be closed. Picture attached

  19. [MGE] The Page https://fllcasts.com/bg/users/745d9e85-d4ca-4cb1-a8b7-ec80447c257a/accounts/new is not translated

Added a message explaining why some groups are missing from the groups table.
