Hmm I was wondering... a visits graph?
I can't find it anywhere so I'm guessing there is none...

Oooh, adding that to the Sales Graph would be cool Smile
And items sold on the Sales Graph too? More graphs, more scales and pie charts! Lol

haha not gonna put those graphs in. Remember, half the users on this site dont even know how to copy and paste counter code into their shop. Trying to keep the interfaced as simple as possible.
For instance, i thought of putting in a separate field for SDB stuff but figured the comment system can handle it all and not crowd the interface with so many textboxes that will scare the *dung* out of users

Yea, I thought that too, and the better the search functions, the less separate fields you would need. Is it possible to include some sort of special delimiter in the comments box too? I'm not sure how useful it would be to reserve like | or something. I guess as a final version there's no point...

How about allowing any price to be entered for bought sold?
That way it can be used to track TP and Auction sales as well.

I'm stocking now, let's see what else I can come up with Lol

1) Slight interface tweak? Replace the 'this is my last page' with a 'Done' button. Change the behavior to just submit each page normally, and then just parse the whole thing as soon as you hit the 'Done' button (I'm almost guessing it may have been this way once, and it changed to this because people did it wrong maybe?)
2) When you submit a shop front, and it give you the line that says 'You have this many items, and this much NP worth of stock'? Can you add a button on one of the sub menus that allows that to be arbitrarily calculated at any time from the current DB?

edit: I'm going to just add on to this list as I stock, unless you prefer otherwise.
edit 2: SW Banned, more later I guess, and let me know when you're tired of hearing more stuff Wink

Yep you're right. It used to say done but people had issues getting it.
As for the pages, visual basic 6 can only handle a maximum of 32,000 characters in a textbox, which is a problem since a shop front would be over 100,000 hence the page breaks

i'd prefer if you made a separate post so i dont have to keep referring back to it when this grows to a few pages but that feature already exists. Go to sales history. Click on statistics. Scroll down and there's your shop front stuff. Though I'll put all of that on the main screen under "Overall"

OOh, thanks! I thought it might, but I couldn't find it, even though it's in a logical spot Lol
