It works, and is ready for YOUR shop!That's right! The EMC Shop Catalog is ready for everyone to start adding their shops and letting people know what they sell easily! Anyone with a shop is welcome and encouraged to visit the site and add their shop information, and keep coming back to keep it up to date and find other shops.http://www.emcshops.org.Additionally, a great suggestion was made to me to include quick links at the side to allow users to easily "search" shops only on specific servers. I'm planning to add this, but part of the suggestion also included designating each server a mob image. To that end, I've create a google docs form to allow users from each server to rate their first through eighth choice mobs for their server's icon. The link to the form is below:Vote for your server's icon!Please vote, and may each server get the icon they hope for!Voting will end Sunday, March 31st at 12pm CDT (5pm GMT). Get your votes in!A rundown of the features currently included:Easily browse through all shops, sorted by those most recently updated, right from the home page.Search for specific items, and even look for shops that sell ALL the items you're looking for. The list of items you're searching for should be comma separated.Search for shops only on a specific server, or by a specific owner.You can even search through shop descriptions, looking for shops that are advertising a sale or special items for sale that aren't in the list.Login through the website each time you want to edit your shop, OR bookmark your unique quick-edit link to be taken directly to the edit page for your shop. Unique means that even if you create a listing for more than one shop (if, for example, you have a shop on more than one server), that shop will have its very own quick link.A shop "derelict policy" is in effect, in which all shops that have not been updated within ten days of the time they were created or last updated will be hidden from searches or browsing. I'll be adding an option to allow you to perform a search that includes derelict shops should you wish to. You don't have to actually make any changes to your shop to update it's timestamp, either. All you have to do is login via the site or your quick-link and it will be considered up-to-date."Markdown" has been added, allowing users to easily add formatting, links and images to their shop descriptions. For instructions on the syntax of Markdown, click the link at the beginning of this bullet. Also please note, though the syntax instructions show that inline HTML can be used with Markdown, I have all raw HTML disabled for user input, and thus the only HTML you can use is what is generated by the Markdown script.As with all newly created applications, websites and related things, this will not be considered "finished" for quite some time. I've got more features I plan to add (list to follow), tweaks will likely need to be made, and there's even a chance that a bug will pop up that needs to be squashed. I humbly request that any errors that come along that I haven't noticed be brought to my attention as soon as possible, preferably through a private conversation here on the forums, or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.CREDITS:Coding and layout: RaenisHeader Image: LeowasteGreat Suggestions: EMC Players!Project Status:Create Listing [Complete]Edit Listing [Complete]Delete Listing [Complete]Main Page/Browsing [Works]Search Page [Works]View Shop Details Page [Complete]Aesthetic Design [Complete - Maybe some tweaking needed]ANY issues you find, let me know what page it was on at what the issue was so I can track it down and take care of it!Planned Features:Image uploads for your shop -> Up to three images pertaining to your shop. These can be screenshots of the shop on your lot, or other images (A logo, maybe?) that can help shoppers get a feel for your shop. I've added a way for users to format text, add links and images to their shop descriptions without uploading them. This method is called "Markdown", and gives you a lot of control over how text appears in your shop description. In light of this, I'll also be adding an additional field to the shop creation/edit pages allowing you to create a Headline for your shop listing to be displayed on the browsing and search pages, as the markup for Markdown would probably look kinda silly in plaintext format if you use images or links in the first 50 characters of your description.Enchanted Item listings -> Some of you sell enchanted tools and armor outright through chest shops. I plan to add a way for you to add listings of what you offer for sale to be shown with your shop inventory, instead of listing the info in your shop description. Upon request and if I can get someone to supply me with the ID numbers required for shop signs for each type of enchanted item, I'll add a display of the required ID number for your in-game shop sign to aid you.Items You Buy -> Many of you wish to also include a listing of items that you allow other players to sell to your shops. This shouldn't be too difficult to add, and all the styles should already be in place, so as soon as I get the chance to do it, it's going in. I'll work the same way as selecting what you sell, except there won't be any stock indications. When viewing shops, I'll add a tabbed view like on the editing pages allowing you to select the list of items for sale, or items you purchase. [Added. Seems to work perfectly, and on the first try, too! Neato!]Item Demand Indicators -> One suggestion I received was to add a way to provide an indication of how likely an item is to be stocked. Obviously, the consumer demand for an item will affect how easily the shop owner can keep that item stocked. As a service to the shoppers, the shop owner may wish to indicate to them how likely they are to be in-stock so customers aren't shocked when they find that they have sold out. [Added. Might tweak the visuals, but the functionality is good!]Suggestions for new features or changes to current features are welcome, and all will be considered as long as they're not absurd.
