Today I installed again some website updates, nothing big and mainly bug fixes:
On low resolution screens the vote buttons on the voting page were showing wrong when a song title or artist/band name was very long.
On touch screens some links on the website were quite hard to click. I don't use a touch screen myself, so if you find more problematic links, please let me know in this thread.
The forum didn't work correctly for visitors who were not logged in, since I changed some code a few weeks ago. It looked like if these visitors could post, but if they tried they got an error message. Now the login page shows at the bottom of each thread again to visitors who are not logged in.
The most visible changes are the new search forms on the playlists, gigs and events pages, and on the forum. In the previous search forms you had to press enter to view the results of the search. Now you can still press enter, but also click on the search icon, which is especially handy when you use a touch screen.
Did you know that you can search for artist names as well as song titles on our playlists?
The search form on the gigs and events pages is quite frequently used by musicians who are looking for gig opportunities. That is why I don't remove the past gigs from the website. You can use the country selection form to check all posted gigs in a certain country. In the search form you can search for city names, states, provinces, regions, addresses and for venue names.
I received a question if it is possible to have the Videoclip of the Month more prominent on the main page. Of course it is. I moved the forum division with the most recent posts from the centre of the main page to the left, just below the menu. I also reduced the amount of upcoming gigs a bit. The Videcoclip of the Month is now on a more visible position.
If you have any comments about the website, this is the thread to post about it. For comments about TalentCast, you are welcome to post in Radio discussion
