More bugs ironed out

Posted by Derek on Thursday, January 31st, 2008 | 7

I just posted GigPress 1.2.2, which fixes a bug introduced in 1.2 (due to a typo – ugh) where your public past shows listing would not display if you had no tours in your database.

Some people have been having problems installing and using GigPress on certain configurations of MySQL 5 running on Windows servers. This update introduces a couple of syntax changes in the SQL that should help with this (though I’m sure more odd errors with these certain configurations will pop up).

    Another great update to a great plugin. I love the new features. One thing I would like to see in a future update is an extension of the Time field allowing you to leave it blank or have TBA as an option.

    can this be used by multiple venues vs one artist or venue ?

    local club has 20 events a month
    another local club has 15 events a month

    can they all be merged together as well as administrated buy multiple clubs for events ?

    like club A can log in and add their shows, and club B log in and add theirs and have them all shown in a master list ?

    thanks in advance

    @akapants: GigPress isn’t really setup to be used by venues, as there’s not really any part of the listing that focuses on the band name per se (it assumes that the viewer knows which band it is). Plus, the RSS feed and hCalendar markup always include a single band name (as set on the Options page).

    I am trying to translate the scrip to Spanish but I don’t find some of the public labels such as “Venue” etc.. in the .php plugin file.

    @Carlos: Someone’s doing a Spanish translation for me right now, which will be released with the next version of the plugin, which is fully internationalized.

    akapants: sorry, I don’t know of a plugin that has the features you need. Try EventCalendar?

    I am experiencing a small bug, if you try to update a show date and make no changes to the data {seems to happen if you do it twice in a row without making any changes.}, hitting the update button will result in an error “Something ain’t right, try again? ”

    In my case,
    I click Edit of a show for March 15, make no changes and click “Update Show”, I then click Edit again for the same date, and still make no changes and just hit “Update Show”. This second time GigPress throws the error “Something ain’t right, try again? “
