Hi everyone.

I am working hard to update the production site, I am trying to catch up with the development branch.

I have been working non stop this weekend and i am finaly ready to bring you the first new page.

The "show" page (EpsByShow) has been totaly redone.
It now features all the information show information, runtime, network, country, classification, episodes, followers.
Best of all, you no longer have to press "Save Episode" everytime you tick a checkbox. All episode status is updated using AJAX and a nice little notification will popup in the top right corner - giving you feedback that your action was successfull.

Check it out, eg. The Big Bang Theory

The other views (pages) will get a makeover shortly.

I appreciate your hard work. Unfortunately the last working greasemonkey userscript stopped working with your change.

When the myepisodes enhanced script stopped working and produced errors on your site I found another old script I could use.

Would you consider an option in settings to keep the old episode list layout?
Some prefer the latest episodes on top and some the oldest episode on top ^^

Having oldest at top is much better when binging a show. If newest is on top, one needs to scroll through several seasons to get to the bottom and mark episode watched.

I agree with both of these posters, i prefer oldest at the top, i'm, not sure whether IceMan is finished with it yet but maybe the plan is to have the headers sortable?

I don't like the settings button. It would be better if those options were just on the page.

Also, the ignore box on the show overview page doesn't work.

I also agree; I prefer oldest at the top as well, if it is possible. ...Maybe it's currently set this way so that the episode list format is similar to TVmaze?...

I'd prefer the an option to go back to the old page altogether. I do not want or need all that information at the top and it takes up over half the screen on my page leaving very little for episodes if they would actually display without needing to turn on google scripts. I'm in favor of lo-fi, low bandwidth, non-scripted pages that work well.

at the frist sight i'm a bit confused but i'm starting too like it.
i do +1 on the comments about getting the oldest episode at the top and the newer one on the bottom, like it was before.
Anyway rly happy that we get so much new stuff and alot of work/update on the page.

I'm with ya. The added stuff at the top means nothing to me.

Hi IceMan,

Is there any reason why the episode table is loaded via AJAX?

This basically makes any user scripting a pain as you need to ensure that the AJAX load finishes before your script runs.

If there is a real need to do it this way (rather than folding it in server side), then fair enough. But I can't see the point of doing it this way, given how the page currently works.

Thank you for your feedback. Smile

I will change the sort order to ascending (oldest first), then make an option to the settings button where you can chose descending instead.

ibwolf, one could argue that you never strictly have to use AJAX - but it is the next logical step to try and make the site more responsive.
I am currently using it so that any changes to the filter is live.
But later it am going to use it so we don't need to list all seasons every time, but just a specific season or the latest season or all seasons.

Does this mean the scripts will need to be pulled from google from here on out or will they be moved back to server side eventually?

jt4703, I started out having it locally, but then changed it to CDN delivered.
Normaly people would have jQuery loaded from a million other web sites. Thus not forcing them to download "my" copy of the exact same file - so I was actually trying to improve the experience for the users.

I DO understand and I know I am the odd one out in that regard due to my situation. I see it is now localized and working rather well. It seems a bit less laggy tonight than it did this morning when I tested it with the google apis script on so awesome! Smile

Very nice, only thing I miss is the ability to see, without having to open 'settings' if the show is currently ignored or not. I believe before we could see that above the show listings.

I thought that was handy as some shows get cancelled, ignored, picked up by another network (as example) which made it obvious to UN-ignore it.

However, with the new show overview page it's quite easy to see the same info.. but, still might be nice to have on episode listing page Smile

thanks for all the hard work!

jt4703, you can test the legacy pages here: https://www.myepisodes.com/legacy/epslist/

I can not promise it will keep working. But atleast it will give the users a transition period.

You can set your default redirect page in the control panel, under Other Settings - set it to "#Legacy MyEpisodes":

Ooo! Thanks Smile Looks great and works as expected. Looking at the new episode list with the auto update too. It takes a bit to wait on the update but it's not as slow as it had been before! Smile Thank you for localizing the scripts. This is awesome

love the extra stuff the site's getting, even if I miss the save status button on the episode list page (got used to hitting reload in the browser by now), but it'd be great if the extra (and for me, unnecessary) show info table at the top could be turned off in the control panel, and even better if the show settings weren't hidden behind another button and an unnecessary extra click. they could still be out in the open, like before, or with more options it could look like the episode list with all the filters and stuff.

Thank you for the updates to these pages
I understand that some people have expressed an opinion that this is how they would prefer the sort order, I would however like to make the case for newest at the top

If you come to a long run series late, and binge watch your way through seven seasons, then at some point, whichever way round it is sorted, you will have to scroll down to the bottom of the list to get to all of the episodes. Fair enough.

But what if you watch each season and even each episode as they are released?
With the newest at the top they will always be right there ready to check mark.
With the oldest at the top, as each season comes out you will have to scroll past previous seasons, with the one you want to access moving further and further down the list.

Please may we have the most recent at the top as default which I think is more logical, with an option to change it for anyone that wishes to.

Thanks again

People are never going to agree on which is better (and thus should be default). Probably easiest to add a profile level setting for this preference. That way, people who disagree with the 'official' default option only need to change this once.

That sounds like a perfect solution
I just imagined that there are a lot of people watching current shows that would have to change their settings for each show.

Where is the info coming from? I'm not seeing any reference to the source.
