    Hi @mnyrop I'm running bundle exec rake -v wax:derivatives:simple cybermountain and getting an error WaxTasks::Error::InvalidCollection: Cannot load collection config for wax:derivatives:simple.
    I seem to have wax_tasks (1.0.0.pre.beta) installed. Is this something you've run into before?
    Ed Summers
    @edsu
    if it helps I could drop this in a GitHub issue to help track it
    Ed Summers
    @edsu
    I went ahead and added the issue ticket with the full stack trace: minicomp/wax#43

    @mnyrop
    @edsu is there a repo i can peek at?
    marii¨
    @mnyrop
    That error is thrown when the collection specified (as a task argument), .e.g., cybermountain is not found as a key in the collections hash in _config.yml

    @mnyrop here is what the config looks like https://gist.github.com/edsu/992c50f13d477e05aa403a00993c9928

    Hi, is this a good place to ask about the new Wax
    marii¨
    @mnyrop
    @JoshuaGOB yes!
    @JoshuaGOB also, if you @ me I'll likely be able to notice / respond sooner, depending on the circumstances.
    (for folks who have original metadata messing up the orientation of the image of the viewer)

    @edsu can you put the repo for your site up? I can take a look at tonight or tomorrow
    (feel free to make a private one and add me as a collaborator)

    Hey folks! First off, thanks @elotroalex @mnyrop et al for Wax! I'm just wondering if it's possible to embed one specific image of a multi-image object in an exhibit? In other words, with {% include inline_image.html collection='collection' pid='obj1' %} I need image 04 from obj1. Thanks in advance!

    @mnyrop
    @ncflib good question! I might've implemented that but can't remember. Let me poke around and get back to you. Either way, sounds like a necessary feature and should be documented.

    @mnyrop Thank you! I really appreciate your time.

    New to Wax. Bringing up a site using clone of the Qatar demo. How do I change the sort order of the thumbnail/links in the collection gallery page? They seem to be sorted by title of the item and I'd like to sort them by _date.
    Bradley P. Allen
    @bradleypallen
    ... or possibly sorted by pid.
    marii¨
    @mnyrop
    Hi @bradleypallen custom sorting is not currently a feature, but I would be happy to point you in the right direction to implement this for your own site. This is where you'd want to make a slight change: https://github.com/minicomp/wax/blob/1adf4f462865d543dc5e1ffb3b83ca288b9a5c73/_includes/collection_gallery.html#L4
    And you'd want to use the sortfilter in liquid to do it: https://www.siteleaf.com/blog/advanced-liquid-sort/
    Happy to go into more detail if needed.

    @bradleypallen
    @mnyrop that was easy to change to get the behavior I was looking for, thanks so much! The only remaining issue I have is that I am getting errors reported from the Jekyll server when I go to a collection item page of the form: "`/wax/img/derivatives/iiif/images/brion_gysin_dream_machine_1/full/306,/0/default.jpg' not found." Else everything is working as advertised.
    marii¨
    @mnyrop
    @bradleypallen does everything look fine in the UI when you play around? if so, i wouldn't worry about it. the IIIF viewer should be able to dynamically provide a different image size if the one requested isn't available. this is somewhat normal as long as the actual behavior is correct, and is likely just a symptom of jekyll serve being so verbose.
    Bradley P. Allen
    @bradleypallen
    @mnyrop The actual behavior does seem to be correct, so i will do as you suggest and ignore the errors. Thanks again!

    As a point of community feedback, the Lake County, Colorado library is beginning to explore Wax for their discovery layer for their historic photos collection.

    @mnyrop
    @awoods thanks for the heads up! that's exciting to hear

    I feel like the larger GLAM community has struggled with establishing straight-forward solutions for institutions that have little to no technical staff, minimal budgets and rich collections. Wax is increasingly looking like a promising frontend to a decoupled, light-weight digital preservation backend.
    Does Wax have any numbers on scale? i.e. how many objects/images can be searched and delivered in reasonable user-time?
    marii¨
    @mnyrop
    hi @awoods sorry for the delay! i need to figure out gitter notifications. If anything is ever more urgent, feel free to post as an issue.
    For your question, it really just depends on the structure of the lunr index. You can have more records if the metadata is simple, fewer if there's a lot of text per item. As an example, https://bunraku.library.columbia.edu/search/ has a pretty enormous search index. It's a little slow but not terrible, and could probably be optimized further.
    marii¨
    @mnyrop
    but this is definitely a question that I'm hoping to better understand as folks use it, push it, break it, fix it, and so on
    Andrew Woods
    @awoods
    @mnyrop : Thanks for the update. I will keep this channel posted on whatever we find out in the course of standing up Lake County's collections.

    @awoods
    Out of curiosity, has anyone here created a Wax Docker image?

    @awoods @mnyrop I'm running bundle exec rake wax:derivatives: iif MY-COLLECTION-NAME for the first time, and I get this error: "Waxtasks : : Error : : MissingPid: Collection is missing pid for item 0." What is item 0? pids and names of items match.
    marii¨
    @mnyrop
    @awoods nope! couldn't hurt to have one, just hasn't been a priority
    @binipringle do you have a public repository i could look at? hard to say without seeing what you're working with
    Sabina Pringle
    @binipringle
    Hello @mnyrop , thank you a lot for getting back to me. I got it working! It was my csv file which got messed up because there were commas in the source column and the csv was comma-separated. iiif derivatives and pages are working beautifully. Here's the repo: https://github.com/binipringle/laislat

    @mnyrop
    @binipringle glad to hear it!

    Hi, folx! Gitter has left some things to be desired (mostly consistent notifications), so I set up a #minicomp-wax channel in the Code4Lib Slack. If you're not currently a member of the Code4Lib Slack, my understanding is you can request an invite here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeD77mBp0Y13mFePF8UmDwFrlbxNx3VttEjz_3dgglJeK-Zbg/viewform?c=0&w=1

    I'm hopeful the switch will be worth your while, especially since many of the other channels will likely be of interest!

    Hello! Very new to Wax and know that once I get it down I will come to love it! I am able to complete steps 1-10 without issue. Unfortunately when I run the bundle exec jekyll serve the images dont appear (but their labels do) clicking the box where they should be brings me to a 404 message. I also cant seem to browse the collection because the stock qatar images are still there?

    @rcastonguay
    @jharris0093, you probably have the wrong URL in your config file
    question: my site is basically working but I think I made the big mistake of using CAPS in my IDs and filenames. I have partially resolved that by changing the metadata and reprocesing but when I compile the search index it still comes out with CAPS. The links from search results have those CAPS and lead to 404 pages. Just changing to lowercase fixes that but I don't know how to re-process everything so that the index uses lowercase. Ideas? Is there a way to delete all assets (i.e., derivatives and manifests, etc) and recompile everything?

    Hi! I am trying to change the UI a little bit. I made the buttons on browse the collection vertical. But now I can't do anything to make it responsive. In small screen I want to add a toggle dropdown bar with the buttons but its not working.

    Hi! I’m currently digging into wax for a project. I got two questions regarding to faceted browsing where I’d appreciante some hints.
    1. Is it possible to specify multiple fields as facets in the collection browser? E.g., facet by work type and motif?
    1. Is it possible to have a facet on a multi-value field? E.g., when I have motifs, each item might contain multiple motifs. The first challenge is to encode that in the data sheet. CSV cannot really express that, so I guess I’d have to use YAML or JSON? But would the browsing widget support filtering by these multi-value fields at all?
