Hi all, I've noticed some inconsistencies in the new tool shed. First of all the table view uses "Name" and "Description" for fields shown as "Name" and "Synopsis" on the tool details page.
Also the field "Name" is not showing the tool name or tool suite name - they are showing the tool or tool suite ID. I would suggest using three columns / text boxes: ID, Name, Description e.g. based on the current XML file for this tool of mine, ID: seq_filter_by_id Name: Filter sequences by ID Description: from a tabular file I have previously commented on the problem with showing the "description" on its own without the context of the tool name as displayed in Galaxy: http://lists.bx.psu.edu/pipermail/galaxy-dev/2011-June/005640.html and: http://lists.bx.psu.edu/pipermail/galaxy-dev/2010-December/004012.html http://lists.bx.psu.edu/pipermail/galaxy-dev/2010-December/004017.html http://lists.bx.psu.edu/pipermail/galaxy-dev/2010-December/004019.html One idea would be to show just the name in the left hand pane of Galaxy, with the description as a tool tip AND show this at the top of the tool main page in the central panel. This would encourage tool authors to write this field as a self contained synopsis, and make the left hand panel less text heavy.
