Beta testing

Post by g8gtz » Tue Jan 23, 2018 9:00 am

We are currently beta testing the new website which includes web site, ecommerce shop, membership database and integrated streamer.

The beta site can be found here: https://beta.batc.org.uk/

We are looking for members to be involved in the testing program over the next 10 days - if interested, please PM me at chair @ batc . tv

If you have any comments about the new site please post them on this topic.

Hi Noel,

Site looks really good and fresh, well done. If I wasn't going on a jolly to 9H I'd volunteer for the testing. Only thing I've spotted with the beta site is very minor and is picture showing LO filter for both LO filter and RF output switch in the Portsdown section of the shop.

OK, first problem! I tried to create an account and the page tells me that "Billing Country is a required field" when I have already selected one. I can't get beyond that.

Edit to add: Also the "Country" pull-down list is now locked out so I can't change it.

Thanks John

Have reproduced it and reported it - will let you know as soon as it is fixed so you can continue...

Nick - Your current BATC login will NOT work on this site - hence why I said contact me if interested in helping break it!

Bug now fixed - you should be able to join now.

Might pay to clear your cache before trying.

Thanks Noel, I have created an account and can log in and out seamlessly. It all looks good except for some external links which open in the same tab. Personally, I prefer external links to open in a new tab. The first one I found was the RAF Museum Cosford on the Events page.

I'll keep looking.

Good stuff.

I managed to create an account, most things seem to work as expected. I tried most menus and some services.

I couldn't order anything by cheque. Or at least I thought that but now have lots of confirmation emails. As I ordered 30 SD cards each time and the total stock was 30, it should not have sold them more than once...

Streamer doesn't work says I need flash - this is in Chrome. Could be my settings but the old one is OK.

Some of the sections are empty, e.g. the minutes.

Hi Mike,

Yes - we are on to the pay by cheque problem.

I'll check the stock issue...

Re links and content - yes, we'll be tidying all that up.

Not sure about the flash question - I'll let Phil comment.

Keep it coming - much rather you break it now than in 3 weeks time!

A bit of nostalgia there on the Past Presidents page. I realised that I had attended meetings with five of them through the years of working for BBC and ITCA!
