In the latest 1.6.x released I changed the actions on the Manage->Users tab from a row of buttons to a drop down list. In the process I have introduced a bug because none of the controls on the user list (expand, search, page forward, page back, etc.) work. I am working on the issue and hope to have an update out shortly.
It took longer than I wanted and I didn’t get all of the features I wanted done, but I have release v1.6.605 of wp-SwimTeam tonight. This release addresses a number of things my own team has been asking for, in particular with respect to jobs. A number of our parents have asked how they can see which jobs they have signed up for and if they have scratched their swimmers or not. A key new feature in this release is the Swim Meets report is now exposed to all users but the information presented to users is limited to their swimmers and their jobs.
- Fixed bug when optional user and/or swimmer field count is zero preventing reports from running.
- Added My Jobs tab for all users. User can now easily see which jobs they’ve signed up for.
- Added e-mail field to user profile. Users are familiar with the swim team profile, easy to update.
- Exposed Swim Meet report to all users allowing users to see their swimmer opt-in/out and jobs easily.
- Added Dashboard widget.
- Fixed quite a few minor bugs – too many to list!
This release is available now on the Download page and will be available from the WordPress plugin updater later tonight
I have just released wp-SwimTeam v.1.5.579, you can find it on the download page and shortly, via the automatic plugin updater. This release fixes an issue which has bothered me personally for a long time.
There was a problem in the E-mail Confirmation code for both registrations and opt-in/opt-out. This same code was used for the new Jobs module so it existed there too. For a long time the confirmation e-mails were duplicated and if a swimmer had to two contacts, only one of them would receive the e-mail. I have finally found and fixed this problem so e-mail confirmation should be cleaner and sent to the appropriate people.
This evening I released wp-SwimTeam v1.4.573. It can be downloaded from this web site or from the WordPress plugin repository. The plugin auto-update will also update to this release. New and fixed in this release are:
- Fixed bug in Opt-In/Opt-Out e-mail confirmation which duplicated recipients.
- Fixed bug in handling Country when set to US Only.
- Added Club Profile initialization based on State or Province in Team Profile.
- Added E-mail confirmation for Job Assignments.
- Added Job Options tab on Options page to configuring Jobs module.
Make sure you visit the Job Options tab to configure your jobs module. There is still work to be done to report the number of credits a user has signed up for and to flag which users have not met the threshold. Hopefully that functionality will come in the next week or two.
Update: This release had a minor update due to a file missing from the WordPress plugin repository. The missing file prevented the Jobs Options tab from rendering. Other minor tweaks were also made to the Jobs Confirmation e-mails.
A new release of wp-SwimTeam is now available for download. It is also available via automatic update from the WordPress plugin repository. This release fixes a couple of bugs and adds two new features, one of which addresses functionality that was coded but never exposed correctly.
- Fixed bug in wpst_meet_report short code.
- Fixed bug in Add/Update Club Profile due to invalid URL field(s).
- Added showmaplinks option to wpst_meet_report short code.
- Added URL sanitatization to Google Maps and Mapquest URL fields on club profile.
- Added notes to use Google URL shortner for URLs that don’t validate.
I am not sure when it was added but MapQuest now generates “shortened” URLs when mapping an address, I wish Google would do likewise. The URLs that Google Maps generates tend to be a mile long and full of characters. My suggestion is to use Google’s URL shortener to generate a simple URL that can be saved within WordPress easily. That is what I am doing for the MacDolphins web site.
The phpHtmlLib library which wp-SwimTeam depends on has also had a minor bug fix which I found testing URL validation. This plugin can also be updated t v22.214.171.12446 using the WordPress plugin updater or can be downloaded and installed as in the past.
A minor bug was found in swimmer and user profiles when the optional field count was zero. This bug only appeared if previously the option count had been non-zero and data had been entered for swimmers and/or users for the optional fields. This release fixes this problem which also manifested itself in the registration confirmation e-mail.[download#7#image]
This morning I posted wp-SwimTeam v1.2.551. This release fixes a couple of bugs and adds a couple minor features and addresses one major issue.
- Prior to this release a new user could add a swimmer without completing their swim team parent/guardian profile but a warning was displayed. The warning is now an error and no further action can proceed until the profile information is completed.
- Throughout the wp-SwimTeam dashboard much of the information is displayed in a widget that can be searched, sorted, and paged through. The number of rows that is displayed is now controlled by a setting on the Options->Miscellaneous tab.
- A couple of minor bugs have fixed with respect to reporting.
- There was a serious bug which occurred when the number of User or Swimmer optional fields was set to zero. This has been fixed and the ability to essentially “turn off” optional fields for users or swimmers now works correctly.
I have posted an update to the wp-SwimTeam plugin. This version addresses a few bugs, one of which was fairly critical as related to optional fields for users and swimmers. This version also adds infrastructure to provide Contextual Help for all of the forms although only the Jobs forms have detailed help so far. Help will be updated for other forms as time permits in upcoming releases.
This version also adds a new choice when defining a Job’s location. Previously the location was limited to Home, Away, or Both. A new choice, N/A, has been added to account for some jobs not being tied to a swim meet. An example of this would be a job such as ‘End of Season Banquet Coordinator’.[download#7#image]
I have just uploaded a minor update to wp-SwimTeam to include one change I forgot to commit. This version fixes the display of users names assigned to swimmers where the last name was duplicated and the first name was omitted.[download#7#image]
I have just posted v1.1.533 of the wp-SwimTeam plugin. This version includes the first pass of Contextual Help for all plugin screens and forms. I have added and/or clarified some of the information to (hopefully) make it more clear what particular areas of the plugin are for and the actions which can be performed.
This version also fixes a number of minor bugs that I encountered, most were due to typos in the SDIF constants that were exposed when I turned the WP_DEBUG flag on.
I added one significant new feature: It is now possible to configure the Opt-In/Opt-Out system to support opting in or out of Full, Partial, or Both types of swim meets. Control over this setting, which defaults to BOTH, is on the Options page under the Swim Team tab.[download#7#image]
