Image and Code Updates - October 12, 2017

Since the last update, quite a few areas of the website have been worked on. Let's begin with the current scanning project. A total of 351 scans have been uploaded to the website. The scans are from the countries of Tajikistan through Tuvalu so the next phase will be the U countries. Besides the scans, several other areas of the website received attention. The Articles page and the Exhibits page were both changed to what I think is a better format. Behind the scenes, I am also standardizing the code. In addition to the Exhibits page being reworked, the display of each exhibit page was also improved and standardized. Additionally, 4 new exhibits were added to the list. If you haven't come across it before, take a look at the one entitled "Olympic and World Football" by Giorgio Sini. It contains quite a few rare items. If any of you have any exhibits that you would like displayed on the site, just contact me.

In addition to the Artices and Exhibits section of the website, I have spent quite a bit of time cleaning up and enhancing the Search Page. The look of the page has been updated. Additionally, a new way to search have been added. The user can now search by format. The Keyword Search component has been enhanced with clearer instructions and a dropdown box which prepopulates the text box in searching by keywords. This meant that the keywords have also been standardized in the database. All of the ways to search can be used in combination with each other either to include or exclude particular criteria. I'm considering adding one more enhancement, the ability to return only records with images. I don't know how useful that would be, so I'll leave it on the backburner for now. Finally, I've worked a little on the Links page. Broken links were removed and a couple of new links were added. Frankly, the links page has never had much time spent on it, but it can be slightly useful if kept up to date. That's about it for now. My primary focus will continue to be on rescanning all of the images and scanning in new images. As always I'm open to suggestions and ideas for the website. Please feel free to contact me with any additional thoughts you have.
