Updated script for Our Downloads.
« on: May 18, 2009, 12:17 am »
I've just finished updating the script which handles the downloads to a new version. Something which I've been working on for a while. It's got a cleaner look and incorporates a number of new features.

However it is still under development and in the stage of being fine tuned (I don't dare say debugged). As a result you might notice some problems or peculiarities. If you do, please use the "Report a Problem" link in the top info box and report the nature of your problem so it can be looked into. If you are a member, please post on this thread.

I hope you enjoy the new look.

It's looking good kays, but I'm sorry to say I found a broken link in the navigation tabs underneath the forum search.

The "Do-Dads" link (where the Arcade link used to be) is broken.  I found it as I was looking to get into the arcade.  The old URL for the Arcade still works.  I only know this as I had is cached in my browser.

Thanks Pat. I had that commented out on my test setup since the Arcade isn't installed there. I'll fix that shortly. Btw, there is a link to the Arcade in the top drop down menu under More.

I'm keeping an eye on the error logs and do have a number of things to look into.

That is quite possible. The script should run quicker since I've streamlined the code and drastically reduced the number of database queries used.

However, a number of months ago, our host moved the site to a new server. Dual quad core Xeon proccessors with 16 GB of memory. Quite impressive indeed.

Now in saying that, some pages with a lot of images could have a longer creation time. I only copied the screenshots over and not the thumbnails. If the thumbnail for an image isn't available the script will generate a new one. So until they have all been created, there could be some longer page creation times.

I'm glad that evryone approves and that there hasn't been a whole slew of problems.

Got the Arcade link reinstated.  :suspect

I've gotta question.. ???

I'm just starting to work on porting the script so it can be used for the FAQs also and I'm wondering what to do about the comments there. One thought I've got is when  a new comment is created to create a topic on the boards in the general discussion forum for game. But not to move all of the comments like I did for the Downloads.

'Downloads' page and sub pages bring up blank screens.  Direct linking to pictures brings up 'Page Not Found'.

Sorry about that. Got it fixed.

Thanks for reporting it. :)

We don't allow direct linking to images, hence the redirect.

Hmmm... the edit option seems to have disappeared, along with a few others.
