Thread: New way of displaying old challenges
Post by: Wolverine(1)

See http://vow.plit.dk/challenges/
I am considering making a new way of showing 10 days old challenges which are fought.

Positive :
- Server will be faster
- You can link to old matches without having to login to VOW

Negative :
- Winning statistics will only go 10 days back
- You can't easely search through old matches

I think the positive by far outway the negative but some might have other opinions so please let me know.

The current system now is very good and fast since showing only a few pages at a time.

What I would like to see is a way to search for a match (We already have the nifty match id's). It would beat having to rummage through pages of stuff to read an exciting match that someone is talking about.

sounds great. :)

is there a way to do a keyword search through the directory to get wrestlers matches?

When google have cached the pages you can do a google search on only vow.plit.dk, should give you the desired matches.

I found a way to keep the statistics so I will be implementing this asap.

Cool :) Was worried about losing my stats - one of my biggest goals is to get to 50% win rate before i retire. I'm still around 39% now, one of the lowest in SSWO :*(

It is implemented.

This will remove alot (hopefully all) of the bad situations with server load we have seen lately.

The challenge table is now reduced by a factor 10 in size :)

Except for the lose of search capability we have not lost any information and as you will see if you try to look at a older match the system gives you a link directly to the match if it is not in the online database.

When google indexes the pages you will be able to search the old matches using something like this search string on google :
site:vow.plit.dk WRESTLER_NAME

Ermm...I tried the vow.plit.dk Wrestler_Name approach on google, but wasn't able to bring up my old matches :(.

Has anyone been able to try this method to find their old matches?

Hmm, I think it's okay :)

We don't really bother about looking up matches that happened two months ago:)

I can't get it to work.

I agree, that method does not work.

sorry to bump this, but I have not been able to see any of my challenges through the search except for one, and it is semi-important to me to figure this out for something I am doing. Maybe if there was a bit more of a simplistic way to do it without having to guess at random and search through each individual folder's files?

You are quite right that this does not really work.

Anyone know how to get google to index the old matches so they can be searched through google ?

I guess I could make a search db myself but I would rather not.
