This afternoon I posted a new version of wp-SwimTeam. This version adds e-mail confirmation to the opt-in/opt-out process. It now behaves much like registration does, sending a confirmation e-mail to the swimmer’s guardian and to the e-mail address configured to receive opt-in/opt-out notifications.
There were a also a few minor bugs addressed but nothing of any real consequence.
I am considering adding some SDIF utilities to wp-SwimTeam. Just this week I have had to deal with submitting meet entry data to a team who uses Meet Manager. Ugh. Everytime I have to do this it reinforces my dislike for the Hy-tek products.
Fortunately Hy-tek now has a demo version of Meet Manager available which while limited to 6 events, is useful for testing in a limited fashion. For example, I was able to verify that the MM RE1 export from wp-SwimTeam will load in Meet Manager. I was also able to test quite a few permutations of SDIF E0 and D0 records until I figured out what combination of course and seed times would load successfully.
Now that I know what works I am considering adding a couple utilities that will apply changes to an uploaded SDIF file and send it back for download. If you have ideas for SDIF manipulations that need to be made, drop a note in the comments and I’ll see what I can do.
The first one I will do will modify SDIF files to include seed times (which are optional per the SDIF specification) when the fields are blank.
