Added Functionality

Postby Doug Bailey » Tue Jun 27, 2017 9:11 am

A number of site visitors have complained that it is difficult, if not impossible to know how recent the information being presented about a locomotive actually is. And after some thought, I completely agree with them, and have modified the site to gather and display information appropriate to this particular issue.

We now track the following:

* Date Created. This is the date that the locomotive was added to our database. Unfortunately, we didn't keep track of that before this feature was implented, so anything prior to this feature says "Before June 10, 2017" for Date Created.
* Last Updated. Pretty self-explanatory. This is the date the last change/update was made to the record for this locomotive
* Action Taken. What was done in the update. For example it might say "Photo Added" or "Location Changed", "Details Editted", or "Map Added"

The "View Locomotive" display, which I'm pretty sure you've all seen, now looks like this:

Note the bottom line, where it says: Record Created. This is the information described above.
