Disclose Version History for 2014

This is a complete version history of the XOWComics.com site for the year 2014. Other years are available by using the links listed just below.

You can also use the "Calendar Quarters" rollover menu, just below also, to quickly jump to individual periods within the year. With the increased usage of "incremental updates" within the site beginning in late 2012, and increasing signficantly in 2013, we have begun organizing this information now into "posting dates" for individual changes within the site. Version number updates in the site have now decreased meaning though will continue to be tracked.

As of the late summer of 2012, XOWComics.com implemented a system to update the web site more quickly and efficiently with new features and upgrades. These "incremental" updates are what often comprise now the full listing of features in each new version of the site.

You can see quite easily how quickly the site has progressed. Your feedback has driven this success and rapid development!

All of the views added are exactly the same as those available on the Series Detail, Issues Listing page: Issues' Search Identification View (i.e. Detailed Data View), Issues' Additional Data View, Issues' Grouping Data View, and Issues' Images View.

Removed values for Content Item Types that are now extraneous with the new Content Item Positions attribute being available. [20141206]

Updated all interface throughout the site to now support the Content Items Positions values. Display of Content Items has been changed from "Title [Type]" to "Title [Type on Position]", essentially. [20141206]

Added editor tools for managing the Content Item Position values throughout the site. Listing areas on Issue Detail pages, Edit All pages, etc., have all been updated to supported the editing of this new Content Item attribute. [20141206]

Update the editor tools for adding and cloning Content Items to now allow for the direct setting of not just the Content Item Type but also the new Content Item Position value when the new Content Item is created. [20141206]

Updated Publishers listing returned in Move Up tools for editors throughout the site to properly display country flags for each entry (older WebKit based browsers obviously do not support this functionality). Added 2 letter country designator to the beginning of each listing displayed, after sorting and grouping obviously. [20141217]

Added "More Info" icon to the top-right of all detail pages. This is setup as a rollover menu accessible to all visitors to the site, meant initially to contain, for instance, access to the Attribution History. [20141219]

Removed the Attribution History disclosable area from all of the detail pages. Access to the Attribution History was placed into a modal window accessible from the new More Info rollover menu. [20141219]

Removed the My Collection disclosable area from all of the detail pages. Access to the My Collection data was placed into a modal window accessible from the new More Info rollover menu. [20141219]

Added placeholder, disabled menu item to the More Info rollover menu on the Issue Detail pages when user is logged into account. Forthcoming features will make this menu item enabled once developed. [20141219]

Removed My Account preference settings for the default disclosure state for the Attribution History and My Collection areas on detail pages. These preferences are no longer applicable with the movement of these areas to the new More Info rollover menu. [20141219]

Remove the My Account preference setting for the Attribution History Maximum Rows to Display on all detail pages. This preference is no longer applicable with the movement of the Attribution History areas to the new More Info rollover menu. [20141219]

Add direct Edit tool for Issue Image Positions into the rollover Issue Image menu on the Issue Detail pages available only when there has been no Issue Image Position already set for an Issue Image. [20141221]

Added Country Flags with each Issue in the listing area of the editor support pages (Issue Images without Links, Issue Images without Positions, Issue Variants with Name, and Issue Variants without Publication Dates). [20141223]

When viewing Issue Variants on the Series Detail, Issues Listing page, added visual delineator in the Issue Number column to group together rows that are all within the same "base" Issue (basically, group together the "base" Issue and all of its' Issue Variants). [20141224]

Reorganized all CSS documents on the server to take advantage of server includes for easier management moving forward. [20141231]

Completely reconfigured "listing" class hierarchy and structure within the site for greater cascading effects of styling throughout Listing areas in the site. [20141231]

Reconfigured all Listing pages in the site to rely on the new "listing style class" in CSS for easier code management and simpler processing on the server side. [20141231]

Reconfigured the actual style settings for the newly configured "listing style class" to make all Listing pages in the site more consistent, efficient, compact, and "flatter" basically in the interface. [20141231]

Site updated to v1.6.2 of code base. [20150101]
