Beta Testers for Running Log

3769 Views 67 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  IEatHills4Meals
It's that time to begin beta testing of our new running log. It isn't completed, but the basic functionality is in place. I anticipate it moving to our server over the weekend and ready to be beta tested.<br><br><b>Who qualifies to be a beta tester?:</b><br>
1. You must be at least a 'Member of the Board' to beta test.<br>
2. Any data put into the beta version <i>may be at risk</i> - do not depend on the beta version as a reliable source yet.<br>
3. You must be willing to regularly communicate on your findings, problems, results, comments, suggestions in a forum environment.<br>
4. The basic version will be running only.<br>
5. You should be running at least 25 miles a week or logging 4 to 5 times a <b>week</b> (to get a good test of the functionality<br>
6. We'd like beta testers who use all the major browsers - when you sign up, please indicate in the pm what browser you'll be using.<br><br><b>How to be selected as a beta tester.<br></b>send me a PM stating you meet all these points. AND an email address where I can contact you. Once we get the log moved to our server and ready to test, I'll send you an email and you can then begin the process.<br><br><br><b>What to expect:</b> A beta version of a running log. This means the log is about 80% ready and you will help design and determine how the last 20% goes and where we end up.<br><br><br>

Okay, it allows you to make an entry with no data added, displays as 0 miles on the monthly view.<br><br>
It also allows you to make an entry with no distance added (time only), and then gives a <b>"Warning</b>: Division by zero in <b>/home/content/x/e/r/xeratek/html/krrl/include/classes/calendar.class.php</b> on line <b>159"</b> when you click on the entry later.
good test! need to make sure 0 entries aren't allowed!
And if you don't give a date a shoe entry, it gives you a default year of 1969!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Shock"> time to switch out those puppies! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Maybe a default time of today instead?
I <i>think</i> I tried that and got the same, but I am not certain. If it happens again, I'll report and try the refresh. I've had this happen before at other sites, sometimes 'refresh' works and sometimes it doesn't.
That just looks like you somehow lost the stylesheet information?
Browser: Mozilla Firefox 2.0<br><br>
Was able to add an event with a heart rate of 20,000.
damn.. your heart is STRONG!!! (I didn't set up limits on what is acceptable - I'd ASSUME people would put in what it is) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">
Ie 6.0
Hm. I've added 3 runs from last week. I added Saturday's run first with comments and it was OK. Then I've just added the runs from Monday and Tuesday, but my comments don't go in, I just get the first character, regardless of whether I type in the comments or copy and paste them from the KR log (I was trying to save some time)<br><br>
No comments:<br><br><img alt="" src="" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
With comments:<br><br><img alt="" src="" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
Ah, sorry: IE7.0, Windows XP 2002 SP2
rich, do you have any mac users doing beta testing?
I went in to your log and edited the entry and it looks as if they stuck...<br><br>
try editing the other and see if it takes it
It did take it. I had tried editing it and adding the info again initially. It did it again for my Thursday run, too. I'll edit that now and see.
I dunno - I know the developer tested on mac and once my stuff gets down here from Iowa, I'll be able to use MAC to test. I do have safari on my computer (windows based) though
Do you think my comments issue is because I used an ampersand symbol? I use it to list who is with me, for instance "M & I" because I don't want to use people's real names in my logs to maintain their privacy. I think it's the ampersand! That's what I blame right now.
I tried it without the ampersand, and it works. That's the culprit. Some programming thing where ampersand means something in the language? The field should be considered a string, right, so we don't have to worry about characters which mean something programmatically.
I think the "end date" on the reports chart should default to the current date. And maybe have the site remember the last selection for type of chart, line vs. bar?
Hi - Just taken a look and posted a run. Had an initial problem, which might have been me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> - Looking at the reports (and I know I only have one post in so far), I am not too keen on the Average Pace being shown as a graph - Can this be defaulted to the actual time being shown in numeric form?<br><br>
As for the calendar visual - Is it possible to have a choice of display - Week or Month? Just initial thoughts - I'll input some additional data and see how it goes.<br><br>
PS - Thanks for this to all concerned.
browser: opera 9.24<br>
os: w2k server sp4<br><br>
added an event this morning; left default "use saved route" but did not fill in the route name; clicked add and the event disappeared, did not show up on the calendar. No error message. refreshed; no change. logged out/back in; no change. Re-entered the run, this time choosing "use one-time route" (again not naming it); this time the event saved correctly.<br><br>
seems like "use saved route" requires you to fill in a given route, else the event doesn't save.
suggestion: to display on the calendar the run type (next to the mileage) so we can see, at first glance, when we had each type done.
I like the calendar display. But for training purposes, my week starts on a Monday and ends on a Sunday. I like Liam's suggestion, is there a way of having a week display that is based on your own preference settings in addition to the groooovy month display?<br><br>
The run type table needs more entries really, or should be user-alterable.<br><br>
Good job!
