Welkom, Üdvözöl, Benvenuti … GigPress 1.2.6

Posted by Derek on Tuesday, February 12th, 2008 | 4

Greetings all – I just uploaded GigPress version 1.2.6, and the big news for this version is that it’s fully internationalized. The download includes language files for Italian, Hungarian and Dutch, with more to come. (Right now I’m waiting on Spanish, French and Swedish translations … if you’d like to offer up your language skills, let me know.) A language template file (POT file) is included as well if you’d like to get going on your own translation.

Besides some bug fixes, I’ve added the choice to not set a time for each show on an individual basis. Leaving the “time” field at N/A will hide said field when displaying your shows. I also added a new option to set your default country so you don’t have to choose it from the drop-down each time you enter a new show.

Many thinks to Luigi, Guido and András for the translations, and to everyone who’s reported bugs or sent in a beverage donation.

    Would be great if GigPress stored the venues in the Database.

    Thank you for the new update 😉 Country selection by default sounds great ^^ (I also like David’s suggestion about storing Gig venues for the future) Am really glad the time field doesn’t show up by default now – I don’t always know what time gigs start, so it’s very useful to have it off by default! Would it be possible to build the same function in for ‘Age restriction’ as well in the future?

    Thank you.

    @Flick: If you set the “Age restrictions” field to “Not sure,” it won’t display anything, just like the “time” field.

    As for storing venues in the database, this is pretty far down the list for me, since most browsers will remember past entries into text fields (essentially serving as a database!), plus the fact that most bands don’t revisit the same venues over and over again. But I’ll keep it on the list of requests.
