thumbnails in ListDisplay view ?

The "to-do" list for Virtual Radar Server is as long as my arm, but if you want to pile more work onto it then this is for you.

thumbnails in ListDisplay view ?

Post by Vincent74 » Sat May 16, 2015 8:23 am

Hello,

Modify List Settings from "List Display" and add "Picture & thumbnails" (as in aircraft display) tags instead only "Picture" tags ?

Thank you !

The pictures that you see when you don't have pictures of your own are coming from http://www.airport-data.com/. If I were to fetch aircraft pictures for every row in the list then it would mean that he'll have to serve up perhaps 30x more pictures per person than he currently does, I don't want to hammer his servers like that.

Yes, of course...
But when i click in the aircraft detail, i can see the aircraft Picture.
At this moment, i have download the aircraft picture from airport-data.
Why not immediatly autosave this Picture in the photo folders ?

Then, for the next time and for this aircraft, i can see the aircraft thumbnails in the aircraft list.

Thann you

What you're describing is a scraper. Scrapers need too much maintenance and they annoy the people who are running the site(s) that you're scraping.
