Super ticket: #1506

  • Fix (i.e. allow / show) name editing on dataset edit.
    • Fix the slugify so it does not overwrite if i change title after fixing name.
    • Make slugify encourage people to use shorter names. Either by cutting off (not so good) or showing a warning and saying something like 'hey you may want to cut this down. Hit edit to customize the dataset name now'
  • Show edit summary form again, at least on edit pages (and prefill it for create to something sensible like: Creating dataset {title} {name})
  • Fix drop down for resource types in resource add/edit to limit to fixed set of options (as per http://wiki.ckan.org/Domain_Model/Resource)
  • Allow reordering of resources (or: and this is somewhat more complex but possibly simpler: allow editing of a resource_order field and we use that to sort resources (this is more like wordpress page_order -- these two options could become the same if we just hijack the existing position field on the join table and get rid of ordereredlist extension))
    • Alternative/complement: forget ordering of resources and just allow for simple search on dataset page (do it in pure js). Would still need a default ordering (with editing of extra fields could allow users to add a position field to each resource)
  • Merge Groups and Tags into main Edit section (no point having them on their own and most people will miss this).
  • Radically simplify set of licenses - #1359
  • Clarify that additional info = extra fields + add guidance - #1648 (minor? wontfix?)
  • "Unsaved changes" warning briefly when you click "Save" #1735
