The World-Wide Sushi Restaurant Reference
Changes to site features, Apr.-June 2001



Changes in Issue 16, 15 June 2020. Corrected two small bugs in the formatting of opening hours: one bug which kept some all-day opening hours from showing up, and an error in displaying miscellaneous opening times information. Also cleaned up that code in general, and smoothed over a few display issues. ¶ Moved some pages around: no more "Other" directory; everything that wasin there is now at the top level; rearranged the front page to include all links. ¶ Have automated management of the page of other sites linking to this one - for a while some of that big unfiled list has gone away, but by and by they'll reappear in place. ¶ And have incorporated the recepies section into the glossary entries.

Changes in Issue 15, 9 June 2020. Corrected two small bugs in the formatting of opening hours: one bug which kept some all-day opening hours from showing up, and an error in displaying miscellaneous opening times information. Also cleaned up that code in general, and smoothed over a few display issues.

Changes in Issue 14, 7 June 2020. Reorganized these pages of changes to the site.

Changes in Issue 13, 24 May 2020. Updated the numbers of restaurants in the page summaries provided to search engines as page blurbs, from `over 1,600' to `over 1,950'.

Changes in Issue 12, 15 May 2020. A quick update to fix a bug - a small mistake in the code translated into some bad links in the navigation boxes. ¶ Also lightened the shades used as background colors; apparantly they were coming out too dark on some platforms/monitors.

Changes in Issue 11, 12 May 2020. Added a list of contributors who've sent in ratings and comments about restaurants, along with summary pages of each contributor's feedback. ¶ Some improvements to the HTML formatting for the glossary and updates pages, and to the error message for login failure on the comment pages. ¶ Restructured and updated the FAQ. ¶ And pictures from the most recent NYSS banquet are now online.

Changes in Issue 10, 28 April 2020. Cleared a number of suggestions, correction and updates from email messages: San Mateo and Foster City now have their own Bay Area page, some usability improvements to the registration scripts, updates to the NYSS pages.

Changes in Issue 9, 19 April 2020. Several changes to the HTML code which renders the pages. Hopefully most of these changes will be largely transparent (except for the navigation boxes, whose text is a bit smaller now), but please do let me know if the changes break your browser.

Changes in Issue 8, 6 April 2020. Thanks to Elayne Riggs for the new information about the New York Sushi Society. ¶ Further: some superficial changes to the colors, front page and navigation layout; a few new links to specific books at Amazon; an updated list of sites which point to this site.

I also found a bug in the offline code for handling telephone area codes in the form handlers for new restaurants. I've fixed the bug, but unfortunately the area codes were stripped from all new listings to the site from Issues 1 through 7, and from some in this issue. This bug did not affect information already in the database, and did not seem to affect the other forms; I'll gradually go through the forms received while the bug was acting, and restore the area codes to those pages.
