This project is read-only.
Have had quite a few uploads and trials already. Currently adding restaurants and reviews is all working but still needs tidied up a bit. Next stage is to get member logon working.

Only thing not working was the automatic counting of user views so I have removed the paging, added code so it does not use the cached page onload and it all works now.

Found a few bugs this morning. The count of the user clicks was not working if there were no previous views so had to go to access to set a default value of zero. Also problem if the user did not pick a star rating when adding a review as it could not then ne evaluated. Tried adding default value to Access but using a lookup seems to interfere with this so had to code an IF statement into my page. All now working.

Off on holiday tomorrow so will not be able to work on my site until I come back on 6th January. However, I am hoping to be able to work on my essay. Hope I haven't forgotten it all when I come back - thats the problem with old age :-)

Tidied up tagging pages - same fields, style and layout as full restaurant list page and user can now search by tags to display restaurants and then link to the usual review pages.

All tagging now working. View by tag, add from existing list and add new tags.

Seaching by tags now working. Users can now also add from a list of existing tags when they are adding a review.

Working on tagging now. I think I will leave the page which diusplays all restaurants as it is and create a new page which allows users to search by tags.

Page refresh now working. No longer uses cached page when using back button (code added to page_load) so 'number of views' counter is now always accurate.

Thinking about 'Network Effects by Default' I have added a counter to the restaurant table which automatically adds 1 to the count each time a user clicks to see details about that restaurant. It works perfectly well when using the tabs to go between pages, but if the back button is used, the user needs to click to refresh the page. Need to find out how to solve this :-)

Spent a lot of time today fixing something I did by mistake, and unfortunately I had not uploaded to Codeplex before I started mucking about aagh!!!!

So..... pretty much back to where I left off last week except have updated Access with new data and photos instead of the rubbish I had there previously. Have also uploaded some text to the default and about pages. Need to add some photos as they are a bit bland at the moment.

Pages which allow the user to add reviews and restaurants now updated to make use of the member login details. Reviewers no longer have to enter their user name - it is now taken from the login details.

These 2 pages have also had their layout improved.

Member logon now working. Have added required components to Visual Studio to allow member registration and login.

Updated system to deny access to all pages without login but then created exceptions for all pages which do not allow users to post anything to the site. This means users can access the following pages without registering or logging in:

view restaurants
view reviews

Registration and login is required to:

add new restaurants
add new reviews.
