wp-SwimTeam v0.1.450 now available

This morning I completed phase 1 of some new functionality that I have referred to as “Global Update”.  The Global Update functionality allows all of the Optional Swimmer Fields that have been defined to be changed in mass from their current value to another value.

If you are using an Optional Swimmer Field (OSF) to track something like “Fees Paid” as a “Yes-No” field, you can use the new Global Update to reset them all to the “No” state.  This functionality may be applied to Optional User Fiends (UOU) as well but right now it is limited to only OSF fields.  Additionally, the “Results” field currently is displayed but changing it has no effect.

There are a few other changes that I fixed as I run into things and I also fixed the situation with the Swim Team Profile labels Michael Hale ran into recently.  The issue there was if the label was only numeric it was invalid HTML for the field name.  There is now a check to ensure that whatever text is specified for the label will now be valid for an HTML attribute.

This version also changes how the Status field is determined.  It is now derived based on the Active Season.  There is an issue sorting on the Status field on the All Swimmers tab so it is currently disabled.

You can find v0.1.450 on the Download page.  I strongly recommend backing up your database before installing this version.

wp-SwimTeam 0.1.442 available

This evening I posted a v0.1.442 of wp-SwimTeam on the download page.  There isn’t a lot of new functionality which is visible yet but this released fixes a couple things I ran into getting ready for the MacDolphins 2010 season.

Updating a season now allows a prior year to be selected – the year range now shows 3 years prior and 7 years after the current year.  Most of the success and error messages now use the WordPress styling where they appear near the top of the page in a colored box.  There are probably a few I missed but most of them should work correctly.

This release also exposes the start of the results import although it doesn’t currently do anything other than load the file and do some basic parsing on it to make sure it is a valid SDIF results file.  The data is not currently stored in the database.

Sandbox Swim Team Theme

This evening I posted a new Sandbox based theme called Sandbox Swim Team.  This theme is designed for Swim Team web sites.  Like the LEGO and Soccer themes I have done recently, this theme is widget ready and has styling for a number of plugins I use regularly.  This theme has a number of options to support custom header images, color scheme choices, and themed login pages.  You can see this theme in action on the MacGregor Downs MacDolphins web site.
