Just having a brain fart here... Is it possible to list the file info (date added, etc.) for the DL page. Either that or add a "New Files" link at the top of the page. I always check the page for new files and the broadcast messages help, but a big sign that say "Hey Stupid... this is new" wouldn't hurt.

Maybe it's just old age catching up with me... just a thought.

well i've debated this and heres the story. as of right now the system is you go into /downloads you createa a folder (which is spat out as the red/gray headers) then any file in that folder is spat out below it. it allows me and others to simply drag and drop a download and it auto populate. the problem with the time added and what not is you will have to add the file using a database input field which is fine and dandy but makes adding and removing files much more complicated. its a trade off. more details with complicated organization on the file adding/editing/subtracting part or few details with ease of adding/editing/subtracting. i of course went with whatever was easiest but i will eventully do a complete rewrite of the site with new stupid stuff like registration (may be tied with forums) that allows for different degress of accesibility. i'm awesome!

Hey Liz,

But you could keep the same system (folder and drag & drop) that's so easy and fun and all... but just make a "New File" folder... That would be listed first.

And so we can know what the files are... just rename them to map_example.zip or skin_example_2.zip... with them being in a zip file won't affect the real filename.

So we make everyone happy and you still have to write 0 lines of code (that's is always good)

Just had a thought... which might be dangerous...

Can we display MD5 Checksums? If we could like those (standard ability for a unix box), we would be able to tell if the file on the server is different than the one that we have. I think a job in cron to autoupdate the table in your DB would do the trick. I could probably copy all the sums to a text file and compair it to the one's on my system. If I don't have a file that matches your checksum, I either have a missing file or an out of date file. I would then do a manual check for the filename, etc.

Any thoughts?

Well... OK... I've only been back for about a couple of hour and I'm starting to complain... smile.gif

But... I was asking myself something... would it be possible to have the download page 'automaticly update itself by what is on the server ate any givemn moment ???

I know the script of the download page is listing all the files in a given folders... but would it be possible for the script to check in the 'server skins' folder also and if a 'zip file' isn't present in the first folder... make a link to the pk3 directly from the server ???

It sounds possible... but again... Liz is in charge of this 'wiz web thingies'... so ???

If you're wondering why I'm asking... it's because I couldn't find the lowbacca skin on our downlaod page... and it's use on the server... because when I logged in... I had to download it a 4K/s... and thought it was a bit long... so I decided to go for the jk2files appraoch.

Beast,

This is a great idea. It's my fault the downloads page is getting out of sync again (which, it has been for a few months). It's great that we keep adding and changing things on the server(s) to mix it up, but it does become quite the housecleaning chore.

We've got a few projects on the Liz burner right now, and I'm hoping that while it's still Summer break he can get to a few.

I'm going to move this to the "Superhighway" forum to try and get his attention with it since it's as much web-related as server.

JB

Yeah... well... I knew Ham posted a link somewhere in the forums... but since we don't have the possibility to search through our post... it would have taken me a longer time finding it here than on JK2 files.

And about Liz... The downlaod page doesn't need to be on the 'high priority' list... but it would be nice to have something like that to always have our site 'up to date'... without thinking or doing anything about it.

My 2 cents.

Btw way Jay, it's your call... but I could look at the script for the download page... I know my way around PHP and I could maybe cook up somehting that would work... never really mess with server something... but it wouldn't hurt to look.

Just thought about it ... but maybe it's not your call... but Liz's smile.gif

still... if you can hook me up with the 'source' page of the site... think about it
