Unofficial Home of Old Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractors


Several Software Updates

Recommended Posts


1.  Installed the latest version of the core IPS software.  It should permanently fix the recurring problem with dues payments we've been experiencing.  In addition to Bug fixes here's a few minor changes you may notice:

  • Pinterest share link has been added
  • Images embedded in the editor can now have an alternative title set for accessibility
  • Users signing in through social services, such as Facebook, will no longer be required to validate their email address
  • When a location is specified for a Calendar Event, the address will be shown underneath the map. The map itself should also be more accurate now.

2.  Installed the Trader Feedback System.  You will now see a new line in the Classifieds that shows this:


It will show no feedback until ads have been completed and feedback is left.  The three symbols mean:  Green checkmark, Positive. Gray tilde (~), Neutral, and Red X is Negative.  The number (now showing zero)  is simply a count of the number of Feedbacks given, not a numerical rating of any kind.

There will then also be a Tab on the advertiser's profile that allows you to also see any comments on the transaction. (see below)  The advertiser can similarly leave feedback for the person who bought the item.  I don't have much experience with this, so I can't describe the details much... 


3.  Installed a new version of the Classifieds, that integrates the Trader Feedback System.  Since this integration with Trader Feedback is brand new, we'll all have to try it to see exactly how all this works....

Other than that, there's no huge differences, just bug fixes.  This was a minor release just for the integration of trader feedback.

4.  Also installed a new version of the Links Directory.  .   Again, this was a minor release with no really noticeable differences.  

5.  All these updates will require several background processes to run, updating indexes and things, so the site may seem sluggish at times...
