Wall capacity counters

I've just blown the cobwebs off this ready for Monday. Might be a thing people use, might not, but anyway, it's a thing.
It's recorded a lot of zeroes in the last few months but seems to be mostly still trucking, which I find pretty amazing for something so half-arsed, flaky and amateurish. It'll probably break as soon as I post this.

John Dunne's lot have rebranded and I think a few have changed whether or not they're working on capacity or pre-booking, so it needed a few minor tweaks and might need a few more. Let me know if your local has a counter and is missing. If it's easy enough I'll do my best to add it.

Are you able to add the Climbing Hangar Sandhills (the other Liverpool one apart from Matchworks)? They had a counter before and I know they are reopening on 12th, so I expect they'll have one again if the other Hangars have.

Ta!

In reply to Longsufferingropeholder:

One thing that really struck me last time, was seeing the Nottingham Depot at full capacity of something along the lines of 167 people. It was busy but it was nowhere near as busy as it gets, which leads me to the question of how many bloody people do they let in there in normal times? Must be 400-500 or so.

In reply to Si dH:

*should* be reet now. Won't know if I've fat-fingered something until people start checking in but I've thrown it in there. Probably forgotten some critical step because it's ages since I forgot how I made this epic house of cards work when adding a new counter, but we'll find out on Monday.

In reply to Si dH:

Well, good news is my code seems to work. Bad news is their counter is showing "Last updated: 3 days ago". Not much I can do about that. Matchworks is the same unfortunately.

Also, crikey some people were keen this morning.

In reply to Longsufferingropeholder:

> Not much I can do about that.

I've added some logic that greys out the lines that have gone stale. Will wait and see what that breaks.

Just read your site FAQ. Made me laugh. Thanks!

In reply to Si dH:

Hangar/Matchworks seem to have started working today.

Also added Redpoint Worcester. Not sure how I'd missed that one.

Edit: Congrats, this means you area has enough centres to be worth its own filter: http://ukwalls.epizy.com/?city=Liverpool

All the best with the reopening. Looking good.

Cheeky I know, but any chance you can put them in alphabetical order?

In reply to Cobra_Head:

Short answer: Nope.

Long answer: Thought about it. Thing is, for some of them it's easy but basically the one-owner-many-walls ones would be a faff to split up because of the way they're just pulled down from the rockgympro pages. Also Oakwood and Flashpoint Swindon (Edit: gone to bookings only now so vanished) are up the top because I wrote this and they're my locals. And also I kinda like that all the Depots are together and all the Parthians are together etc. And the Eden rocks and the works have very different counters that are scraped in a totally different way.
I'll have a think about it and see if I've missed a really simple way to sort, but I don't think it'd be that useful. What I think you actually want is a better way to filter that only shows you the ones you're interested in, not necessarily just by city. If I can come up with a way to remember a preference for that I'll probably do it. Might have to learn about cookies, or generate really long personalised links with loads of &s in them or something.

"Your account was suspended"

Got slashdotted by the BMC :-/
I guess you get what you pay for with free hosting.

In reply to Cobra_Head:

Just had a look, actually it's really easy to sort them. Will see about implementing that when it comes back online.

I see not commitment at all here, I am, at the very least, gruntled!

I mean... if they wanted to host it I'm not precious..........

Should be back up later this afternoon. Don't know how long it'll be until it's banjaxed again. Maybe enough people will have given up and forgotten about it.

In reply to Cobra_Head:

Ok, so...
1) It's back up
2) I made some changes so hopefully it won't piss itself like that again*
3) Made you a special linky: http://ukwalls.epizy.com/?sort=az

*- Now caches results in a SQL thingy**. This means it might load faster, but importantly shouldn't batter the CPU by running curl a bajillion times and get suspended.

**- Never used SQL before today. Not as hard as I thought, but still, had to learn from scratch. I might have made some bad assumptions and instead made things worse. Time will tell.
