HOPS Version 1.55

Introduction

Minor update to add Facebook & Twitter fields.

New features

  1. Checks the pub's website is responding on saving pub, i.e. the URL is valid and works
  2. Facebook page name added. As per the PDS, just the name (e.g. redlion) is needed. However you can paste in an entire Facebook link and HOPS will strip out the page name
  3. Twitter handle added. As per the PDS, just the name (e.g. redlion) is needed. However you can paste in an entire Twitter link and HOPS will strip out the page name
  4. Facebook & Twitter added to PDS export and survey report

Tweaks and changes

  1. Secure website URLs now allowed, e.g. https://www.securepub.com
  2. "Spellings" changed to "Other names" to allow PDS AltName & PreviousName fields to be extracted at export:
    1. Made up example: Red Lion; Old Swan; [Valllee Innnnn]; {Vale Of Inns}
    2. Semi-colon separated list of names
    3. If enclosed in square brackets, then that's an alternative spelling only actually used by HOPS search (so pretty redundant) (Valllee Innnnn)
    4. If enclosed in curly brackets, then that defines the alternative name (Vale Of Inns)
    5. All other names are taken as previous names (Red Lion; Old Swan)

Bug fixes

None.
