Happy new year! I just imported the newest set of MiniCribs (29.01) into the database. We're now up to 5137 cribs with only 34 non-matches (mostly for obscure and/or very new dances that haven't made it into the database yet), which is a new record. Thanks to everyone who is working behind the scenes to make this go smoother every single time.

Based on a suggestion by Murrough Landon, for dances in publications that (a) have a link to an online PDF and (b) give page numbers for the dances they contain, the database now displays direct links to the specific page of the PDF containing the dance in question. To test this, look at The Prince of Sutton Coldfield and click on the link given under “Online Sources”. At least on Chrome/Chromium and Firefox, this should open the internal PDF viewer with the actual dance (not the first page of the publication) displayed in the window.

This uses the http://…/foo.pdf#page=X link style promulgated by Adobe, so it should theoretically work with Adobe Reader, too (I don't have Adobe Reader so can't check – let me know how you get on if you're in a position to try it). Your mileage may vary.

The database is now up to MiniCribs 28.07! This followed 28.06 so closely that I didn't even get around to uploading that version.

SCDDB collections now support “sharing URLs”. These are difficult-to-guess web links that you can give to people whom you would like to allow read-only access to a collection of yours. Anybody who knows the sharing URL for a collection can look at that collection (they don't even need to be signed in to the site).

You can find the sharing URL for a collection by going to that collection's page. It is listed prominently on the overview tab.

fixed a few long-standing Strathspey SCD database bugs today:

  • People who try to create a new dance list with the name of another of their dance lists now get a nicer error message.

  • In the editing screen for publications, a “fuzzy” publication date can now be saved back directly (there used to be a formatting problem that caused dates to be put into the form in a format that the form processor couldn't understand, which was a nuisance).
