New Database features - May 2011

Post by higherlimits » Tue May 24, 2011 4:32 pm

Hey guys,

A new update has been uploaded to the site. ( www.whiteswirl.com ) This one relates to User profiles. We have now made it possible for you to see other people's collections, Wanted lists and Trade Lists.

To see someone's collection (for now) you need to find them in a Wanted/Trade list like such: http://www.whiteswirl.com/index.php?act ... iew=wanted and click on the person icon beside their name.

Collections are defaulted to be private so people need to change this in order for other people to see their collection. The Wanted and Trade list are always public though.

To make your collection public go to "My Profile" at the top of the page and then click "Preferences" and change it to "Public".

For now there is a fairly rudimentary search function that will only search the actual "Title" of the items so if you search "Rob Jones" it won't find anything.

Some things that need to be done before this function is perfected (and are currently being worked on):
Searchable Member list to make it easy to find anyone
Add "See Collection" link on user's forum profile
Improved "Search" functionality

Please leave your comments and suggestions below, remember that this is the first iteration and the fuction will be improved soon.

Cool stuff. Hope you can get us lazies to post their collections.
Honestly, I've been too busy on school and a few personal projects to do it.

Yeah, I think that now that you can see people's collections it will encourage people to use it. Once we have all the functionality it'll even be better.

I plan to only post stuff that I think the masses won't have. To see a conan tri... so what.
It's the kick-A rare stuff that I want to see in this thing.
