What's new - Mar 2014

30 Mar 2014

Section Update
Mobile devices We've fixed an issue with the display of the new wider menu buttons on mobile devices using the standard version of the site. You should be able to see all the buttons now.
Books We've now added a timeline page to the book review pages. For example: Star Trek Chronology: The History of The Future

29 Mar 2014

Section Update
Top menu We've increased the size of the buttons at the top of the window, which has enabled us to put more explicit text on them.
Species menu The species menu has also had the quadrant breaks removed, again making it easy to find a species without knowing what quadrant they are from. The quadrant is displayed on the top of the Species Notes page as before.
Personnel menus Previously we had Personnel and Other people menus. These have been changed to Standard People and Alternate People. These represent people from the Standard or Alternate (Nero/ST-XI) timeline. The menus have also been changed to remove the series breaks and to reorder the entries into alphabetical order. This should make it much easier to find the person you are looking for. The Crew manifest pages have been moved to the bottom of the menu. The personnel page now shows the series that the person is associated with so this information is not lost.
Director Biography Pages Fixed an issue that could prevent the Director Biography pages for working correctly.
Book Reviews We've split the datapoints from our book review page to a page of their own. Once again the next and previous button keep you on the type of page while navigating.

Section Update
Episode and Film pages We have released a revised set of pages for episodes and films today. Previously we have had a single page for each with everything in a large table. Now we have split this into four pages:

Review - The bulk of the existing information. The plotline and Analysis sections are now located below the table to give them more room.
Images - The images taken from the episode, laid out using our standard image format, including autoscroll.
Datapoints - The datapoints provided by the episode on it's own page.
Timeline - The timeline entries for this episode show for the first time on the episode page.

The different pages are accessed using header buttons in the standard way. The Next and Previous buttons are retained and gain an added advantage of moving through the episodes while maintaining the currently selected page.

Sci-tech images Fixed an issue with the Sci-tech images page that prevented it from looping back from the first image to the last when you clicked the previous button.
Articles Just uploaded a new article taking a look at Holodecks and their implementation in Star Trek.

23 Mar 2014

Section Update
Reviews Our reviews menu has an option to display a cast list for the whole of the series; whilst these lists were previously in order of the number of episodes each character had been in, they are now sortable lists that you can arrange by alphabetical actor name, character name, or episode appearances. Can can be ascending or descending order; simply click the title at the top of the column to sort!

13 Mar 2014

Section Update
Search Fixed a few issues that would prevent the search from finding people.
Image search Article images have been added to the image search (click on search above and select image in the chooser). We've also labelled the images found with the source of the image (Ships, People etc).

12 Mar 2014

11 Mar 2014

9 Mar 2014

Section Update
Additional species Slight change to the Additional Species picker page; it now also includes those species that we have a name but no image for because they are only mentioned in dialogue. You can choose to display only species with images, only those without, or both. And of course you can also filter the list for species name by initial letter and their quadrant of origin, as always.

Site outage Apologies for the site being unavailable for the last few hours. I changed the password for the database and forgot to update a few places. This lead to the main page thinking that everyone was the first site visitor ever and the forum being unavailable. Anyhow we're back. Please let me know if anything else isn't working. Thanks ian
