Let's say I add a new detailed search option that lets the user select compact or fullview, how do I render the page in compact view programmatically via CSS?
I'm adding a cookie with name "showDetails" and value of "true" or "false". If you do it with php then it should work "out of the box".
Also, I am thinking of making certain search options such as full/compact view and page size (5/10/25 etc.) cookie-based instead of CGI paramater based. Any potential concerns?
I don't think there's any important catch but I'm not a cookie expert (unlike my mother-in-law :)).

Try ctrl+F5 in IE9, that helped others too.
Yes it worked up to a point ........
Then IE9 crashed!

Wouldn't it be better to design a site that doesn't require all these "so called fixes"

Lists in descriptions (example) don't have bullets or indentation.

Don't seemed to be fixed yet. I have updated with the latest style.css. Anything else I need to update?

List bullets are fixed (again). I guess it was a victim of a dropbox sync.

I know I didn't give much input on the early designs so this may be a little late to suggest. Anyway:

Order of attributes
  • I recommend putting the extract instructions at the bottom of the entry and supported operating systems to the top. The reason is primarily because of where Windows is right now: there's a fairly even split between WinXP and 7. Users who visit any site are immediately going to want to know if it's incompatible with their machine. After that, information for users who only want stealth or those seeking an favorable license (Can I use this at work? Is it open?) can further decide if this is workable. Finally, once you've decided you want it, the instructions tell you how to make it happen.
System Requirements
  • Was thinking we could go a little more minimalistic here:
    • [Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8]
    Could be this:
    • Win [95 / 98 / ME / NT / 2K / XP / Vista / 7 / 8]
    Alternatively, if ALL are selected, it could be shortened to "WinAll".

    I also wouldn't mind seeing "WINE" on that list, as we now have quite a few programs that are compatible. I'll modify any entries that list it in the description to say something like "WINE compatibility note" to avoid redundancy.

Continuing with the issue raised by webfork, there are some applications in the database (like the recently updated Cathy) that no longer support Win XP without SP or with SP1, but with SP2 or SP3 and above.
Since this information is usually hidden in the changelogs, do you think it would be worthwhile to include the ability to edit the System Requirements to make visible the need for a particular service pack?

Done!

Don't think I care much for the minimalistic version, but I did implement the shortened to "WinAll" suggestion.

Wine support added.

Why is anyone running Windows without the latest service pack?! :shock: Don't we have enough zombie machines around?!

This little bug still exists:

The right bracket should be removed from each entry.
