Current status v2.0.4 (updated 2008-12-12)
- Fixed: a nasty bug was displaying recent titles in shop properly but something else when ordered!
- Fixed: past feedbacks dynamic display that failed on IE6/IE7 due to specific Explorer bug.
- Fixed: visitors trying to display recent LDs for sale in shops would get the whole list instead.
- Fixed: when adding a title to cart, the requested quantity was missing.
- Few maintenance upgrades:
- Disctronics (DMI USA, former PDO USA) was added back to the manufacturers' list. Their mint marks typically
show a W.O. # pattern, meaning Working Order #.
Thanks to laserking (17) for pointing this out.
- The Mint-o-Matic™ engine was updated accordingly.
- Added a new statistical graph for monthly covers.
- Export(s) will also carry the picture ratio (P&S, Letterboxed, etc.) from now on.
- Limited support added for D-VHS and HD DVD, only for simple submission for now to build an extensive basic catalog before adding collection/update support.
Current status v2.0.3 (updated 2008-05-09)
- The SEARCH engine was modified in several important ways:
- When doing a straight search, matching words will now appear in color.
- Quick Search now also accepts full (and valid) UPC/barcodes.
- When no results are found, a spellchecker will tentatively give you a "Did you mean? alternative option.
- To improve searching, failed search will automatically try to offer a close match.
- III, II, etc. should also match 3, 2, etc. in the titles from now on.
- Before adding players and HD DVD support, I spent time cleaning up the code. Nothing will show on screen but future adaptations will be made easier.
- Searching in Collection and Wishlist will also search in Notes from now on.
- Collection can be sorted by "Date" now.
- Wishlists will also display the current Shop offers for a given title.
Current status v2.0.2 (updated 2008-03-22)
- Added a small reflection under the cover to make it look slightly more engaging.
- Added a background to the menu to make them look a little more professional.
- Modified the location of the LDDb.com watermark on thumbnail to make more space for revelant cover information and move most of it out of the newly added reflection picture.
- Added a few more "Specific Lists" in the menu to make access to most common lists easier.
- [Internal] Thumbnail is always regenerated on the fly when missing.
- [Internal] ISBN/UPC cached data are now stored in separate folders (to speed up access and backup).
- BRAND NEW: introducing the "iCover" to browse through cover a lot more easily! Shamelessly based on:
Current status v2.0.1 (updated 2008-02-19)
- CED and VHD update/submit are now fully operational.
- Fixed: users' pending submit/update list where using wrong internal id leading to broken links.
- Fixed: "how old?" in recently inserted was showing the time title was submitted, not validated!
- Added: recent covers tab and top 100 list
- Covers for titles tagged as Adult/Pornography will not be displayed to unregistered users (to protect orphans and innocent souls).
- Feedbacks accounting has been changed to give a little push to Sellers/Buyers engaging in multiple transactions over
time leading to multiple positive feedbacks. Previously, any number of positive feedbacks from a single user would
result only in a +1 increase in overall feedback. Now, an additional "bonus" will be added as follows:
Note that in case of a negative feedback balanced with positive feedbacks, the "bonus" will not apply.
Neutral feedbacks are really neutral and do not influcence the overall feedback.
- Positive = 1 to 3, Bonus = 0
- Positive = 4 to 7, Bonus = 1
- Positive = 8 to 15, Bonus = 2
- Positive = 16 to 31, Bonus = 3
- Maintenance upgrade:
- Added a private picture on the Account page to display the proportion of pending and validated updates/submit.
- Tried to improve the visual look of the Stats/History graphics.
Current status v2.0.0 (updated 2007-12-01)
- MAJOR UPDATE: all separate format table have been merged to simplify things.
- Collection/Wishlist export will now display 1990 or 1990-01 instead of 1990-00-00 or 1990-01-00.
- Tentatively added the eAccelerator 0.9.5.2 PHP Module to speed up PHP script compiling with dynamic caching.
- Barcode/UPC pictures are now cached after generation to save some CPU time.
- Search in Collection and Wishlist was broken: fixed.
- LD on display already added to Collection will now be directly linked.
- Automated links to Moviegoods for unknown direct IDs were not properly formatted: fixed.
- Quick upgrade of script.aculo.us to fix issues with Opera:
- The random cover on the main page can now be updated in a single click.
- Added 2 more collections:
- Added "Resources" links (based on IMDb #) to Soundtrack Collector.com. These guys are doing a great job!
- Added some pop-up arrow controls to make list sortable by ascending/descending order, for refererence, title, release, country and video fields.
- The control buttons really needed some refresh (they were in fact one of the very first "temporary, draft" graphics I did... And they ended up being used for more than 4 years!
I hope you like the new ones better:
- Realizing that the site design didn't receive a single layer of fresh paint for more than 2 years, I tried to somehow upgrade the
visuals here and there to make things a little more appealing in this "Web 2.0" world we live in now...
