After fixing this issue I continued to work with the visualisations. I added in an option to show or hide the words in a category, as the ‘infobox’ was taking up quite a lot of space when viewing a category that contains a lot of words. I also developed a first version of the part of speech selector. This displays the available parts of speech as checkboxes above the visualization and allows the user to select which parts to view. Ticking or unticking a box automatically updates the visualization. The feature is still unfinished and there are some aspects that need sorted, for example the listed parts of speech only show those that are present at the current level in the hierarchy but as things stand there are sometimes a broader range of parts lower down the hierarchy and these are not available to choose until the user browses down to the lower level. I’m still uncertain as to whether multiple parts of speech in one visualisation is going to work very well and whether a simpler switch from one part to another might work better, but we’ll see how it goes.
I also spent a bit of time on the Medical Humanities Network website, continuing to add new features to it and I set up a conference website for Sean Adams in Theology. This is another WordPress powered site but Sean wanted it to look like the University website. A UoG-esque theme for WordPress had been created a few years ago by Dave Beavan and then subsequently tweaked by Matt Barr, but the theme was rather out of date and didn’t look exactly like the current University website so I spent some time updating the theme, which will probably see some use on other websites too. This one, for example.
