New Info To Me

Post by Paladin » Tue Aug 22, 2017 10:24 pm

This has never happened to me previously but today I put a new listing in my store and I learned 2 new things.
First, the listing was for $1,000.00 and I entered it just that way on the listing 'form'. Unnoticed by me, the listing came out for the amount of $1.00,, rather than the $1,000 as I intended. My knives quickly sold for that amount to one of our members and I could almost hear him laughing in the background as I began my scramble to get it all straightened out. I took the listing down and began an edit process which I could not accomplish. It continued to come out at $1.00 rather than the $1,000.
In a panic, I completely re-entered the listing. Same result. It finally dawned on me that the computer wanted no comma in there and as soon as I tried that it came out correctly. :D So if you didn't already know this I hope it might be of some help.

Second thing I learned today is when I was doing my listing I found it necessary to make a new category so I did so by checking some box and added the category but it would not show on my list. I thought, no problem, I'll hit the refresh button.
Well, when I did that everything I had entered disappeared. :(

Again, maybe I am behind the learning curve but here it is and if it is some help to you, great!

Sounds like a frustrating lesson Ray. I know that some computer codes don't like commas involved with money figures, they do seem to favor periods though. I can relate to the second lesson very well. I would make a listing for a knife that needs a new category. I would add it at the bottom of the form and hit the mouse button and lose all of my data. ::td:: I even reentered everything and reload the pictures and it happened again! ::doh:: The lesson I learned? Make the new category first, then do the listing. It helps me to keep what little sanity that left. ::nod::

I just fixed the comma problem. Should no longer give issues from 8-23-17 at 9:55AM CST forward ::tu::

I'm certain something can be done about the problem discovered when adding categories on the fly, but it may take me a bit longer to get to that.

Will try to sooner than later.

Thanks, Bryan. I appreciate the fix and I'm sure I can speak for others by saying that we appreciate what you do. :D
