Today’s Bug Fix

As predicted in an earlier post, I discovered a flaw in the site last night — there was no Titles page for China MiĆ©ville -! — that I investigated and fixed today. It had to do with the difference between what I call ‘display’ names and ‘index’ names, where the latter, which become URLs, cannot include special characters such as the letter E with an acute on it, because browsers, or perhaps servers, reject URLs with such characters. And, my query to sum the number of titles for each author, which determines whether or not the author gets a separate titles page, was run before the query to align each award record with the ‘index’ name. Make sense? Anyway, fixed the problem. It affected 17 authors, including China. Those 17 authors’ name pages, and the name directories pages, updated.
