GPSFileDepot: New Design/upgrades
« on: September 18, 2011, 11:24:05 AM »
All,

As you can see the new version of GPSFileDepot has gone live.  Although I attempted to do extensive bug testing there are likely a few issues floating around.  This is the thread to post any problems you run into.  The new design also moves the code and features into modern times and includes some upgrades to help users get help and get content with ease.

When posting a "look" problem please include what browser and version you are using.

The forums are scheduled for an upgrade as well both in terms of functionality and moving to the new design.

Wow, you've been busy. Nice job, looking good in Firefox on Windows!  :D

Can't find a link to maps.  Also, what's with the karma?  Mine's pretty bad already.
Got to the maps by typing in the URL.  Page looks nice, but links to individual maps on Custom Maps page for AZ don't work.
My browser is Firefox 6.0.2 (Win7-64).  Firewall is BitDefender.

Crap, updating the forums change the column names... I'll work on the fix right now.

Your Karma is currently +1; I figured it was like giving thanks; maybe it isn't such a good idea.

Alright, that bug is fixed.  Let me know if you see any others.

Map links are working now, but I'd still like to see a link from the forums to the maps.  My primary bookmark is to the forums, without a link to the maps, I'll need two bookmarks.

The new forums theme is up.  Now you can get everywhere else on the site from the forums and vice-versa.

I like the look of things!  Great job!

By any chance has the problem with uploading big maps locking up been fixed?

On the page(s) listing the mapsets available for individual States, the first two+- letters of the column heardings are truncated.

@maps4gps: What browser?  I assume by headings you mean the "Topo", "Roads", etc?

I can't replicate the problem in Chrome or IE9

Looks fine on Firefox 6.

IE9

update versions 9.0.2

That is some strange version number.
