I have been very busy and have not had much time to work on GWAN. I got the logins working. To log in will require that I set up a user id and password for you, contact me to get this set up. The login process will also require you to pass an anti-bot test, you will be required to identify the type of object in a picture for access to be allowed. Access to various parts of the site will be limited by your login. If you are not logged in you will only be able to access the home, contact, blog (read only), login, links and about pages, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SEE THE GAMES ANY MORE. If you are logged in but do not have admin access you will be able to see the games and the screens above. If you are logged in with admin access you will have unlimited access. Logging off will remove all access and return you to the home page. I will need to provide some testers with 2 login id's, 1 with admin access and 1 without, once again contact me to get this access. I also started to add pictures to the site, if any testers have ideas for either the GWAN logo or pictures we could use please let me know.

Changed the login page to randomly select a picture and to create a drop down list box (ddlb) of the unique item names in the database. This will be used to prevent bots from attempting to hack this site. Also added the login button. While you can type information into these fields still nothing will happen. I will actually code the login process next.

Changed the information displayed about specific games. Added all info in the newest version of the GAMES table. The GAMES table needs to have MAP_ID and TURN_NUMBER added.

Got the xampp db user set up the same as the user on the prod server using the same password. This will allow me to begin to set up db access on the server.

Changed all pages to have PHP create the header and the footed, common code, easier to change. Began to work on the login screen. Create form for input of User Name and password. These currently do not do anything.

Began working on the UNITS table. This should include the fields UNIT_ID PK of the table, PLAYER_ID, GAME_ID, NATION_IND, UNIT_TYPE (F for Fighter, S for Ship, CV for Carrier), UNIT_NUMBER (Different from UNIT_ID, sequential numbering of like units. For example, USCV-25. The '25' would be the unit number, UNIT_NAME, LIVING_FLAG (Is unit alive), SUPREME_COMMANDER_FG (Is this the supreme commander), COMMANDER (Alive unit that commands this ship or tank ...), FLAG_SHIP_FG, COMMANDING_UNIT (Who does this unit report to), TREE_POSITION (Used to build the tree). I'm sure there will be more but this will be the initial list of columns.

I began to create the data base and the tables. Created the data base GWAN_DB. Created the table GAMES and inserted 2 test rows. The primary key of the table is GAME_ID, there is a UNIQUE INDEX on the column NAME.

Converted all page files to PHP. Began to research how to create the GWAN DB and store game information in a GAMES table. Next task is to create the DB and the table and learn how to retrieve information from it and display that information on the screen. The first information displayed will be the list of games. In the content area of the home page will be a description of each game.

Change log will be moving to the blog page as soon as I can get the list of games and their descriptiions from a database. I will use this information to populate the game list on the left. This area will display the description of all of the games.

Removed the left column from Contacts and Login screens. Changed 'Create New...' to just 'Create' on several screens. Added new screen Account Admin, now there is Game Admin and Account Admin. Togle between the 2 with the button in the left column.

Changed the size of the menu buttons to display in Mozilla better.

Finished creating the unit information set of screens. The list of games now only requires a single click to launch the unit information set of screens. The unit information screens will be navigated with a 'tab page' style set of buttons above the unit information main screen. Please ensure all of these 'tab pages' work correctly.

Changed the template to use Style Sheets. Changed links to blue with white mouseover. Changed button to orange with blue text. Implemented Style Sheets for everything. Worked on getting all pages to use the style sheets. Changed the game list to be a simple html list instead of a tree to allow my android phone to work correctly and make this simple list easier.

Changed text color to blue, this looks better I think and is easier to read. Removed the word GWAN from several places to create a less wordy screen.

Added double click event to the tree so it will now launch the Unit Information page. YOU MUST DOUBLE CLICK THE NODE TO ACCESS THE UNIT INFORMATION PAGE

Initial release of GWAN Games. You will need to allow Active-X (Pop-Ups), and you will need to allow javascript to run. Please enable these in your browser.
Please test all links in the title bar to ensure they are working. The links in all of the pages should take you to the correct page. When hovering over the links you should be able to see text in the window status (bottom left) for IE. I don't think this is supported in other browsers.
Create New Buttons and the lists are currently not supported.
I have tested with Mozilla, Chrome and IE. Please test with other browsers if you have them available.
Please note that all screens are templates and are not the final version. Some things like the list on the left of some screens will be removed.
