April 2018 updates

  • Kia ora koutou, It's been awhile. We're busy selling our house at the moment so there hasn't been much time. This update includes the following: * Forums: An URL of an image will display the image * Rebuilds of many minor pages * Many bugfixes * New login form and account recovery if you have forgotten your password * Slightly improved performance
  • Hi everybody, Sorry there were a few bugs in last night's update. These have been addressed. Changes: * Forums: add thread closure notice at top * Photograph sorting by date added * Updated home page * Several bugfixes Yes, you can now sort photos by date on this page as requested. https://tramper.nz/photographs
  • Thanks, Matthew - but it's not working (date sort of photos) - Samsung browser or Chrome on an S2 tablet nor Chrome on a Win10 PC Click on DATE and the page reloads (and the page address ends in ?q=&sort=date ) but the order of photos doesn't change (and Score button stays selected).

  • Ah thanks @bernieq the caching was stopping it working. I’ve turned caching off temporarily so it should work now.

  • Not quite *all* good, perhaps. I'm not too keen on ads inside posts, Matthew. It looks a bit like the poster is sponsoring/approving/recommending the content. I can go with ads between posts - inside is (imo) certainly distracting; possibly misleading.
  • Kia ora @bernieq, I have been trialling automatic ad placement for the past couple days. It is interesting, but at this stage I plan to switch it off after I've gathered a little more data. Thanks for the feedback.
  • Another glitch it would seem - photos are again grey boxes (in samsung browser but ok in chrome) on the home page and photographs pages. They are OK, however, if I drill down to an individual photo. *edit* fixed a few punctuation glitches :astonished:

  • Key: Filename of box.
  • On Request? "On request" boxes are not always used in a view.
  • Generated? "On request" boxes are only generated as needed; others are always generated (unless retrieved from the cache).
  • Title: Box title. Set in view definition but may be overridden.
  • File: The file that is used to generate the box content. This value is determined on application start by a file scan. If blank, the content is usually generated by the controller -- or the file is missing.
  • Template: which box template file to use (useful for major changes). Looks for /custom/template/box/[template].cfm first and /whio/template/box/[template].cfm second.
  • Class: what CSS class to apply to the box (useful for aesthetic tweaks).
  • Cache (min): cached item must be fresher than this.
  • Cache key: how the cache record is identified. {Placeholders} may be used.
  • From cache? Was the content of this box drawn from the cache?
