CycleLog Search

It's been a long time coming, but the new CycleLog Search page is finally done! And looking into it a bit, I find that it was just over a year ago that I mentioned the shortcomings of the previous search utility.  The new search now allows you to perform all sorts of date based searches.  You can now locate a specific ride, date bounded rides, X number of rides forward or backward from a specific date, as well as all rides on or in a particular month, day, year or any combination of those parameters.

More important than this just being a new search page, this represents a new beginning, effectively the start of CycleLog V2.0.  There is an entire new code base that drives the search utility and ultimately, the entire project.  Everything from here forward will utilize object-oriented PHP, a template engine and will be XHTML standard compliant.  This has been a long time in the making, but well worth the effort.  The next step will be to update the simpler section of the site: Summary, Latest and Random Ride pages.  Then a new edit/add section will be built to replace the existing add only section.  This will make life much easier as currently I have to manually edit the database to correct any data entry errors.

Oh, happy day!
