SOTAwatch Summits


#21

Can I confirm you can successful log in to the database? You may need to use the forgotten password facility.


#22

Sorry, it also works.
I have different credentials to database and sotawatch2.
My mistake, forgive me.

An easy mistake. This is why we are pushing hard towards Single Sign On :slight_smile:


#24

For the past 3 or 4 days all the summit links on both SOTAwatch2 and SOTAwatch3 have sent me to a blank page.

For example https://summits.sota.org.uk/summit/F/AM-326 is blank

but it works when I change ‘summits’ to ‘www’

https://www.sota.org.uk/summit/F/AM-326

I have not seen that particular problem mentioned anywhere.

Hi John, I wonder if you might be using IE11 for your browser? Can you confirm?

If so, this is a known issue which I will fix since a few others have expressed a strong preference for using IE11.

In the meantime, if you use Edge, Chrome or Firefox you should see the summits ok.


#26

No, it is Firefox, but on an old XP computer, so definitely not the latest Firefox.
Anyway, I will just wait. Thank you.

… John

JON, I installed the new version. It works fine for me so far and no issues. I will get used to the changes. I like the idea of a single time sign in also. Thanks for the upgrade.

so, why not updating to the latest version?

EDIT: I found out that Firefox has stopped support for XP with version 52 … so you cannot update to the latest version!


#29

The latest Firefox has for Windows XP

Yes - all displaying nicely now Jon. Nice job.

Hi Jon,

Thanks for the information. It is helpful for the third party provider that activation information can retrieve with the API. I have changed my site to obtain the latest spots and alerts with the SOTAwatch3 WebAPI, which shows activator’s APRS track with the summit location.
https://www.sotalive.tk

I will tell you how I used those APIs on my site via email.
I would appreciate if you would give me some advice.

73,
Minoru

A nice looking facility!

Happy to help. Just PM me on this reflector or send a message via the SOTA Contact form.


#33

I’m using IE11 and not seeing the summit info.
Change is change. Some things I like, others, not so much.

Hi Victor, this is a known issue with IE11. I have fixed SOTAwatch3 which is now viewable in IE11. The Summits site is more complex to fix but I hope to have it resolves in the next few days.

If possible, if you were able to use a different browser (Chrome, Firefox or Edge) for the time being then I will let you know when IE11 works.

73, Jon


#35

I do have to drill down a bit on the search page to find the correct SOTA Associations Page.


#36

Jon,
I’ve been following the discussion, so thanks.

I do have another concern: Pastel on white does not work for those sensitive to light and color blindness. The new SOTA WATCH # page REFLECTOR LATEST in NORMAL font, light blue, seriously fade into the white background. The BOLD of the LAST 50 ACTIVATIONS is much better.
Thanks,
KI7MMZ


#37

OK, thanks Victor, I really appreciate this feedback. I do see what you mean. I have made a note to look into improving the contrast of the Reflector topics.


#38

The Summits site should now be viewable in IE11.

I have noticed one or two bits of the site that have slightly degraded functionality in IE11. However, I really don’t want to spend a disproportionate amount of time trying to make the sites perfectly compatible with legacy browsers probably used by a small minority of users. I strongly urge ALL users to upgrade to modern web browsers.


#39

The Summits pages seem to be down.

When I go to https://www.sota.org.uk/Summit/W6/SC-243

all it says is [Error]

That is the old site which has been deprecated. See Jon’s 1st post for more info but the correct site is:

https://summits.sota.org.uk/
