Hello all! It's finally here! The web based version of the NeoMallers Portal brings many new features such as wiz price crowd sourcing, better error trapping, a redesigned interface, and daily backups. It is called the X2 for the time being as it seems to fit quite nicely (its version number 12.0.0 picks off from where the classic portal left off)

NeoMallers Portal 10.x has been renamed to simply NeoMallers Portal X. But where's 11 you ask?? That's a potential future project! It basically brings X2 and the original together through a two way sync which allows you use either the web version or the Windows app.

The beta can be accessed from http://neomallers.com/cloud
NeoMallers Portal X (Version 10.2) is required for the DB import feature and can be downloaded directly from http://neomallers.com/files/portal.exe

To export:

Download Portal 10.2 directly into your NeoMallers folder.
Open Portal and run the database export tool.

Choose Prepare export file.
Copy and paste the text file's contents to neomallers.

While many bugs have been ironed out, we still strongly recommend that you take caution and make sure you are submitting data in correctly. We do run daily backups of the main and X2 databases every day at 9am however don't rely on them too much. Also, some of the core features (mainly analysis tools) are currently not available but will come shortly.

To come soon:
- Bringing crowd source online
- integration with NeoMallers Shop Counter Service and the unreleased Market Analysis (remember that weird link under tools??)
- Statistics (with actual graphs, not dumb bar graphs made crudely with jscript) for both sales history and item database.
- DB snapshots. (This will make the restore process so much easier and automated too!)

Requirements: X2 should run fine on most modern browsers. If you use NoScript, you should whitelist/enable jscript for neomallers.com since it greatly improves the experience.

Post your experiences here!

I'm new to the portal (no previous data base) and want very much to use the web version. I pasted shop pages to generate a data base (check boxes). Manually made sure all my data base items were listed as in stock with correct amounts. Re-pasted shop pages to sync and 90% of my in stock items showed as out of stock. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for any help.

Hi! Can you try re syncing? Also what browser are you using? I looked into your database and it appears to be set up correctly on that end

Just did a re-sync of all shop items. Added any new ones to data base. Tried refreshing all data base pages. Most items are still showing as out of stock. There doesn't seem to be any pattern as to which show as in stock.

I take that back. There is a pattern to what shows as in stock. The newer items, which would be my last page, are what register.

Quick question: are you submitting it all at once?
The old portal required you to submit one page at a time but this one requires you do it all at once

I was submitting 3 pages at a time (240 items) with a space between pages. I just tried submitting 1 page at a time and each new page would erase the info from the previous.
I didn't know I could submit all at once because of the 250 warning note on the sync page.

yeah the 250 warning is only when you are adding in new stuff. Your usual sync supports up over 10,000 pages which is more than enough for neopets shops tongue
