Hi everybody,

we had a small update today:

- Model owner can set a default material on the product details page for which the model price is shown in the galleries.

- Redirect back to forum instead of homepage, when logged in on the forum.

Great! Smile

Just noticed that the header buttons don't line up in chrome

index.php?t=getfile&id=9313&private=0

Chrome latest on Win XP-32

That doesn't look good! But I can't reproduce it (I'm not on the most recent Chrome yet, though). Maybe some CSS got cached for you?

Anyone else seen this problem with the buttons?

Very strange, it used to look ok in my Chrome.

Flushing caches and related didn't fix it.

But a de- and re-install of Chrome made the problem disappear Rolling Eyes

Silly softwares..

Reinstalling the browser seems like a big step! I hope that's not necessary for anyone else who may encounter this issue. Sad

WINNNER!!!!

It's also used as default material for ordering, which allows us designers to preselect the favorite material. Great!

I can confirm that one. Seems saving to the Jewelry-ring category fails at the moment, probably due to the size of that category now. We'll look into it.

Correction.

It seems to work from the item page but not from the gallery. When I order from the gallery the material is WSF and not the default material.
I think that should aklso be changed.

I agree, ordering from the gallery should use the default material just like ordering from the product page itself. I'll make sure we update that behavior.

You can add additional links to the model page in the form of:

I am now getting blank model pages in chrome on two different systems.

Source says <body> </body>

Edit: 17:55 (site time) working again, that was weird..

I just emptied the cache, that seems to help for the few that had the same issues.

@barries: works now, thanks

@virtox: nice tip. Is that a show case in this example or did you add functionality by this mean? It seems a lot of work doing that for all models.

I have started to fill in the defaults and oncemore I wish that these two suggestions from the forum would be available.
1. very simple: place additional back and next buttons beyond the save button
2. download and upload the properties of an item via excel/csv

Woody: it's functionality that existed prior to the default material.
And yes it's a bit of work, but once you have the code/layout it is easy to adapt them for others.
I edit them in a text editor using search and replace and then copy paste.
The basic code was copy pasted from a shop section widget set up for that purpose.

Virtox--what you did here looks really nice, but Shapeways actually should not support HTML except for very basic styling in this area, because there's risk of accidental (or deliberate) breakage. At some point, we're going to have to cut it back for our own sanity and safety...

The real serious security risk is at the shop editing page where a shop owner can insert HTML tags to describe his shop -
No adequate measures were taken by the development team to filter out the <script> </script> tags against cookie hijacking, traffic redirecting etc...

I understand, but so far it has seemed very adequate in handling user mistakes though Wink

But as I am not very happy with the current bulky/sluggish material selector, I figured I'd experiment a bit and I really like the direct buy option for different materials.

Same for the "related products", as more control would be very useful.
How about a manual override, where the shop owner can choose 4 related model numbers. (if none entered, system works as it does now)

Cheers

Nice catch, I just had a working a "Hello world" javascript popup in my shop...
<script type="text/javascript">
alert("Hello World!")
</script>

About "Related Products": I don't understand why Shapeways wants to distract a potential buyer by showing offerings from other sellers on MY product page...

I understand the technical idea behind (more internal links and better PR distribution pushing more items pages into SERPs first results), though. Smile
