Elan Registry - Multiple Photo Upload - Looking for testers

PostPost by: Unibrain » Tue Jan 05, 2021 12:17 am

I spend some time over the holidays updating the registry to allow uploading multiple photos. It touched a lot of things and I'm looking for some feedback and a little testing before I push it to the live site

If you want to see what it will look like and provide feedback the url is [url]test.elanregistry.org[/url]. I updated the data from production today so if you have an account it should work on the test site.

Thanks in advance,

Jim

Hello Jim,
nice to see that much progress ;-)

Questions and remarks:
- maximum is 5 images ? At some point it says in a bubble "You can not upload any more files."
I can drop more images ... but they are not saved.

- I miss a re-order image functionality. I uploaded rear quarter view and want to place front quarter first.
Now I would need to delete all and re-upload.
Multiple Upload by drop-down is aleatory (apparently at least) .... I selected images in the order I wish to present them (front view first), nothing to do with saved order.

- I personally would separate the image-upload/edit/delete from the car data edit page.
When you go to "edit/update", delete pictures and then clic "cancel", the deletes have been done already, so there is no "cancel" on delete image operation.
When you upload a new image, it is not stored if you do not confirm by clicking update.
This is an ambigous behaviour.

BTW Test record is 9267.

I just tried adding some comments and uploading 3 additional pictures but it is stuck in saving mode.

Aborted after an hour.

I see in the log where you started the operation and it didn't complete. I logged in as you and of course it worked! I'll dig in a bit more.

Using Firefox, it hung when I clicked on the update button.

I can't even get into the test site.
Just receive a message in red stating something about the 'Lucas the Prince of Darkness ' and it is redirecing but it never reaches its target.
Hope you can sort, you are doing the work of the Gods.

That was me breaking things. I do that sometimes! It should be working again.

Sorry.
Going to add to your woes.
Not only can't I get into the test site but I have to reset my password each time I try to get back in.

Hi Jim

Car ID 37 is now owned by me, how do I add it to my list of cars please?

I'll try some multiple photo uploads!

Thanks

I need to make that change. I’ll do that over in the live site. PM me the email address you use on the live site.
