Latest post of the previous page:

It doesn't work on Chrome for Android (every entry has the caption "show", but, if clicked, nothing happens).


And, also: what does the preview image show if all the images in the entry are "gory"?

Ok. It might be the JavaScript code I’ve used. I’ll change it later when I finish work.

In the code, the preview image just shows the first image and resizes it to 150px wide. If I create a SEPARATE field for just the gory photos, and hide it behind a button, then the Preview Image will be blank. I think that’s acceptable? Maybe in the code, I could find a way to put a grey box with a ? inside it or something.

I need to experiment.

Very early test version of a MM.org clickable link type system: http://www.the-fastlane.co.uk/thing/testthis.php

One day this will replace the 'Browse Database' function.

This is very useful. :thumbsup"

I've just noticed that "Alessandria" is spelled "Alessándria", which is wrong.
Is it possible to correct that?

Just tried. It weirdly says it already exists, which is not correct. Will dive into the database and see what the problem is.

I'ev just noticed that there's a typo in the main list page:

There's the caption "Pictures(s)" while, I suppose, it should be "Picture(s)".

VERY important update guys @hollie3sa @Motorsportrace @DaleJuniorFan.

It took me a while to work out how, but I have added a new button called "Add+Duplicate".

If you click this button, it loads a new Add Record page with all the details from one you just entered. So now, if you're adding 10 crashes from the same race, same circuit, same series etc, you don't have to keep filling out all the boxes every time.

Please note that if you click this button over and over, you'll just create duplicates of the same thing, so please be careful if using it.

New feature: [x] Add User Login info, forcing users to create an account before they can browse the CPdB

I wanted this for a long, long time, but for now consider it just a test feature that may or may not stay.

EDIT: I tried to manually add the above guys, but it wouldn't allow me to login, so please register manually.

A major mistake that has to be fixed. Highest priority.

Wow, thanks very much for notifying me! Given the severity of this, the CPdB will be down for at least a month while I fix the issue.

Not that urgent, but Randy LaJoie is missing from the drivers involved in this entry, and considering he’s the one upside down I’d say that counts as being involved :haha:

http://www.the-fastlane.co.uk/cpdb/cras ... itid1=2013

Also I’d like to help out with this project, I’ve already uploaded some stuff on the forums and I’d love to contribute it to the database, mainly nascar stuff but I can do some other types too.

Having another contributor would be great. Do you have a suggestion for a project? Or perhaps @DaleJuniorFan could advise? (Perhaps PM me to discuss)
