Table should be like CAA Handbook


8 comments posted

CAA Handbook view created but not added to the LHS menu.

The view is available here:

Aside for the cleanup of the column widths, I don't think that this can completely replace the Table View as it is missing:

I would still prefer to have the default sort by updated date so that I could quickly tell what the new boats were. The column headers are all click-able for resorting.

I could see using both views.

The current Table View could be the default view could be the home page for

The CAA Handbook view could be the new Table View.

LHS Menus changed to reflect above:

Home -> /latest. A table sorted by latest changes first.

Table View -> /table. A table sorted by boat number made to resemble the CAA Handbook.

Map View -> /map. A map of the location of the boats.

Table View updated to closer reflect the CAA Handbook table attached at #6.

The subtlety is that the Owner, City and Club information comes from the User Profile instead of being associated with the Boat. The User Profile information tends to be the information about the Owner: his address, contact information.

In essence the table displays the location of the Owners and not the Boats. There are numerous examples of Owners not living exactly where their boats are.

This now accurately reproduces the CAA handbook. I did like some options in the old view to sort on most recent posts. Maybe that only needs to be in Admin function. But might be nice if it were an alternative view as suggested in comment #2. Would not hold up for this. Could be a future improvement.

If I'm approving, I'd consider this "done" for addressing the CAA handbook issue.
