Subject: cresby.com new web page needs feedback.

geographical filter page - of venues/dances in the Mid West of England (+ De Ddwyrain Cymru).

OK the page is fairly stable and ready for a bit of comment.

what it sets out to do is inspect 4 of my pages and generate a subset of the data based on geographical proximity.

The epi-centre/focus can be chosen by town/village from a list which is culled from the same pages.

Those pages can be displayed individually.

The distance info can be replace with post code or grid references (2 styles).

I may extend the scope (eg Radio Stations) and chronological info is penciled in but I am having difficulty with alternate weeks and finding a reliable datum for each one (was it ever thus?).

So - is it fairly easy to understand?
are there any browsers that make it go wrong (eg Opera 10.5x)
have I wasted a month of my life trying to script it?
do bears poop........................

Oh - just noticed. There is a full URL at the bottom of each table. This was intended for people to copy to the address bar and re-do, so that the specific epi-centre info can be saved as a "favourite". If anyone knows how to script that so it automatically writes to favourites I can incorporate it. Just the JavaScript (client-side) clues are enough. TIA.

Keeps flashing up a pink "select a location of interest" panel and won't let me look at anything else. (Firefox 3.6.8 on Windows 2000 Pro).

I just used it (in anger) on FF 3.6.9 portable (and previous updates) albeit on a remote WinXP not sure what that problem is - it does evolve so try again. Other tests regularly include Mozilla 1.7.8, IE 5.5, FF 2 . IE 8 does not fault it. Chrome seems OK with it. Opera has some issues on other pages.

One thing I have noticed is that some PC's are not set up to refresh so it may be a mix of pages and JavaScript files being out of date/sync.

Indeed my local library uses a remote OS (for security) and the caching is done at the central server (UK gov snooping refers) and that has to be refreshed manually because I update almost every day on one page or another.

So to be sure: try again and use the refresh button once thereafter.

There is a new update due this week to highlight how soon a given venue might be (from today to next week). Alt weeks are a logistic problem - I have the solution but not necessarily the data.

FWIW I am toying with the idea of auto-refresh if the local instance (on your PC) is a week old (say) for all my pages. Not a trivial undertaking when you consider the potential for things to be overlooked.

It reminds me of standing in a railway station in Slovakia and trying to figure out how their timetables worked. There is way too much information and too many active widgets on each screen.
