CPdB v2

Post by PTRACER » 1 year ago

Well, I started this project about midday yesterday and nearly 24 hours later I am pretty much done.

It has received a complete overhaul and has some new features which I hope you will enjoy. I will post a full changelog tomorrow. In the meantime, please leave feedback below (good and bad).

Link: http://www.the-fastlane.co.uk/cpdb/

----------------------

Update:

Changelog
- New, more modern theme which fits with the colours of the forum.
- New field: "Track Type". You can now search by Oval, Street Course etc.
- Circuits now searchable from the main 'crashphotos' list
- Tags are also now fully searchable
- A new warning system is in place - any unpleasant images are now completely hidden unless you click a button
- As a result, the "Safe" version of the CPdB has been retired
- Many changes under the hood, including compatibility with php7.x
- it now works on mobile devices!

Data changes
- Fixed a few entries where the images were not properly wrapped with "warning1.gif" and "warning2.gif"
- Photo Credit section fixed - all entries are now separated with a ; for easy export later
- Removed/fixed all duplicate entries

Still to do:
- Mobile version needs some work
- 88 entries are missing a track type
- Remove some unnecessary tags (E.g. Private Test and Speed Record Attempt)
- Remove some unnecessary Series types (E.g. Historics, Private Test, Unknown)
- "Updated By" not working for new entries

That's how it looks in my browser. Is it caused by the website?

Fixed. It was a problem with my web code and Edge browser.

I just point this out, on my ultrawide monitor the new menu bar doesn't appear correctly. I know, isn't that important but i think it's the right thing to point it out

The menu bar is set to 100% width, so it will stretch from left to right on all monitors.

I could probably set a maximum width of 1920px for ultra widescreens, unless you can live with it...

It seems that when you put something under warning, it cuts part of the picture off, for example this entry I added here.

http://www.the-fastlane.co.uk/cpdb/cras ... itid1=5130

The rest of the photos aren't affected, and I did check the original files which aren't cut off, neither is the direct link to the picture.

Which parts of the picture are cut off?

The images are meant to resize to 100% of the "box" which they are sitting in, in this case the 'warning' photos seem a little smaller than the non-warning ones.

EDIT: Ah, i see from the original now. And actually, inside that box, the image is set to a width of 1024px, not 100%. I will make the necessary adjustments to the code when I get home tonight. Thanks for pointing that out :thumbsup:
