Improvements, fixes and updates

WDF/BA Updates:


- Added parameter 'DEFAULTCOUNTRY' to GP006. It should be filled with a 2-character ISO country code, like 'NL', 'DE', 'BE', etc.. It is currently implemented in GP008, GP011, GP014, MD000 and MD001. If it does not seem to work with your implementation, your applications haven't been updated. Contact me to get a quote, if you want this.


- Exporting multi-line text to Excel, now results in each line in its own row. If you want the old functionality back, let me know.


- Now that all sites use HTTPS, I have implemented secure cookies . This ensures that you can only login via HTTPS.


- Auto-complete on tags in GP009, to make it easier to quickly add existing tags, without having to guess how they're named.


- Under the hood updates and fixes.

WDF/BA updates:


- NEW: Introducing background images. You can now add a background image to your WDF/BA:

In GP006, add a key 'BKGIMAGES', and in the text area, add links to images, each link on a new line.

The display of the background images is spread over 24 hours, in the following manner: for example, when you added 4 links, you have link 0, 1, 2 and 3 : int(current hour / (24 / number of links)) = int(15 / (24 / 4)) = int(15 / 6) = int(2,5) = 2, which means it will use link number 3.

This way, you can have special images for the morning, midday, afternoon, evening and night.


- Improved local development and test environment by installing local HTTPS and DNS .


- Changed the general log level from 9 to 7. Changed the log level of reading data for list views to 9 for interactive mode and 2 when exporting. This change will massively reduce the number log-entries.


- GP004: Renamed it to MD007, which is a better place for it.  This is implemented by default for new customers, and for existing customers who do already have an MD007 for something else.


- GP009: Improved auto-complete on the tags field.


- MD000: Added 'copy a record'-mode. This is implemented by default for new customers, and for existing customers who need it.


- MD001: Added a TagEditor to the 'Location type' field. This is implemented by default for new customers, and for existing customers who need it.


- Many CSS and under the hood fixes and updates, including removing or replacing PHP 8.1 deprecations. The final move to PHP 8.1 for the production servers, is planned to be done in April/May 2022
