Karaoke card form
« on: February 14, 2009, 10:18:39 AM »
Sean, would it be possible to increase the length of the text field on the karaoke card form? It's not a big deal, but the URLs to the songs are usually kind of long, and it would be easier to edit if the lines didn't wrap. I assume it's set to something like 36 characters now...perhaps changing it to something like 72?

Again, just a tiny detail, but it would be helpful when copying/pasting links and editing text prior to submission.

Text area is now wider and text wrapping is off.

More requests, please...   

1) Could the "Submit karaoke cards here!!" on the main page be  in a larger/bolder font, or a different color, or a big button, or something to make it really stand out?

2) Could the submission field boxes be a bit larger so we can see all (or more) of what we have entered? 

Million thanks,
Malia

1) I will see what I can do, but can't guarentee anything.  Edit: It is now bold and a larger font.

2) Yep, I'll go do that now.  Edit: All the fields? or one or two in particular?  Edit: I've made some big changes to the layout of the form as well as to the size of the text fields.  See what you think.

I think that looks good.  Too bad I couldn't use it last night since I wasn't expecting to be back in time.

Thank you for your work on this site, Borg.  You've done an amazing job, and you handle everything with such grace!  I hope you get lots of applause for everything you've done here!

Hi Sean, today when I submitted my card the text in the main field was not wrapping.  (I'm using Firefox 3 for Win XP.)

Also, when I received my email copy, all the apostrophes came out with a slash, like this:
   Malia\'s karaoke songs 03/07/08.

HUGE THANK YOU for all the work you are doing on this site!!!

I had wrapping off, but thinking about it now I will enable it for that field.

   Malia\'s karaoke songs 03/07/08.

Looking into this.

I noticed today that we "sumbit" our cards rather than "submit".  But please please PLEASE don't change that!    ;D

Fixed.  In case anyone else ever encounters this function you need to run the string through the php stripslashes function.

LOL never saw that LOL.  I'll leave it ... for now LOL.
