I have seen a similar idea used on other sites and thought I would implement it here but in a more streamlined and unique method Wink

The new >Stopovers Section< allows you to enter in details of any trips out in your caravans whether this be a overnight stay, a weekend away, or a more extended holiday

Simply Add a stopover into the database and it will be tracked throughout the year

I intend to have a competition based around these entries, more details soon

The Main stopovers page can give us some interesting statistics (As the results are all stored in a database we can analyze them)

I intend to add more facilities over the next few days as follows:-

1. Days used will be added below your avatar in the forums as small text msg
2. Facility to drill down / see own personal pages showing all entries in the database relevant to an individual.

There are some test entries in the database atm which i entered in so you can see some stats, once a few actual entries are listed I will remove my testers

well lol you can enter in future dates but then it means the system isn't actually factually correct as it would probably set a precedent Bob and competitive people would be entering their xmas break away lol

good point though, i will add code in to prevent this Wink

nothing to stop you entering in historical data i.e. any other trips away you have done this year

When I click on my name in the Top Caravan Users section it tells me I don't exist... the one in Top 10 Caravan Usage works though.

Also it seems to think I've done 6 days when I've actually done 1 6-nighter, 1 3-nighter and 1 2-nighter this year... Looking forward to three weeks in August too...

Good to see the total is working in my profile though!

Hi Dave,
nice addition to the stats, but I have the same problem as TykeInASwift,
It has not totaled my days correctly in the stats but the total under my avatar is correct, and according to the stats page, my user name does not exist.
A few teething problems but all in all, a good addition to the site.

Hi again Dave,
forgot to ask in my last post, apart from the link in your original post, how do we navigate to the "add a stopover" section ?

k all fixed Smile

Added in the following also:

1. Ability for the owner (or admin) to modify or delete a stopover entry
2. You can now click on a users name in the stats page to see their individual entry page showing all their entries.
3. The Usage stats are now all accurate and I have added in the most important stats which was actually missing i.e. that of "Cumulative stopover data" for the year so far for each submitter.
4. The Usage stats within the forums under avatar info is now correct and links to the individuals entries page.

I will now add a link to the stopovers in the nav menu on the left

I know this is probably difficult but it would be nice to be able to click on the site name and read the comment...
