Planner Problems - Places won't stay hidden anymore

Travel Forums System Talk Planner Problems - Places won't stay hidden anymore

1. Posted by SAlou (Budding Member, 7 posts) 23 Nov '13 15:10

Up until today I had all of the places on my planner hidden so I could just see the name of the place and the travelling dates. I find it easy to see when I will be where this way. Now, every time I go on my planner all of the places are open showing the full information. It makes it so hard to edit my plan. I click on the hide links and hope that when I go back it will stay that way, but no - not anymore.

Any idea why this is happening suddenly now? I've signed out and back in too, with no joy. It's very frustrating!

Sounds like a bug on our side. I figure this should be fixed shortly after Peter (the admin) sees this thread (give it a couple of days just in case it turns out to be a hard problem). Thanks for the report!

Okay, thanks Sander. Hope it's a simple fix!

Hi SAlou,

I'm not sure this is a bug. It is still operating as expected for me and no real changes have been made to the code here recently. It might be a difference in what we expect though. The way it's designed to work now is that it will show stops open by default. If you have a lot of stops on your trip, it will only show the next 5 upcoming stops open and the ones beyond that will be collapsed. If you are halfway through a trip, it will show past stops collapsed and future stops (up to 5) open.

Looking at your trip, you should be seeing the stops of London to Paraty open and then beyond that they should be all collapsed to make it easier to navigate.

There isn't a preference setting at the moment for this. I'm open to considering that as a future improvement though.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for your response. This is how it always used to be - showing the first 5 open and the rest collapsed. However every time I go in now they are all open, and none collapsed. I wonder why it has changed for me. It's a shame because it makes it so much harder to edit my trip :(

I think a preference for how the planner is displayed would be a great idea, as some people may prefer to see them all open. But for me, going from the majority collapsed, to all of them open is not good! When you have so many stops on your trip and you keep swapping from the map to the planner, it takes so long to close them all!

Hmm, on second thought, there is some non-ideal behaviour in here. Collapsing actually doesn't happen at all if the trip hasn't started yet. It might be that you added dates to your trip and that's why the behaviour changed.

I agree though that this is not right. I've just updated it so it should do as described above now.

Thanks Peter - back to how it was now! Happy Lou :)
