    HCW Readers....This is to let you know that a new database is soon to be rolled out. This new one is completely hand written by me and will be extremely FAST and compatible across all browsers and operating systems. The old database was too clunky and many people had trouble getting the page to load. However there will be a few changes....After looking at the usage numbers I have decided to remove the "trading" capabilities from the database. Those that have used the list generator will NOT lose their lists. I have access to these lists and can provide them for you. There will be rolling changes in the next few days that may not allow you to access your lists . If this happen and you need them contact me via conversation and I will get it.

    If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to ask.
    Thanks
    Dave

    Dave - What happened to the CATEGORIES in the database? I do not see it anymore. Will we see it again or is it gone forever (Or am I doing something wrong?) I do that often as you know from my HELP memos). When you are 77 you might do a few things wrong ALSO!!!

    But I do my best to help our A.C.S. with coupons and labels.

    Best,
    Linda

    Linda - The categories have not been displayed in a LONG time you could only select. They are a very time consuming process as they can only be updated manually. Sorry but for now they will be disappearing. If anyone wants a peek at the new format(subject to change) here is a link to the New Database. Note this will NOT be the final url so don't bookmark it. Let me know how it works for you as I have a limited number of machines to test on. It should look good in both desktop and mobile. Tablets may need some adjusting.

    Thanks
    Dave

    HWC Readers:
    You can now use the database on HCW: GO Here
    There may be a few small quirks that I need to work out but that should not cause any issues for anyone. let me know if you have any problems.

    Thanks

    I have an odd issue - (Of course I do ...) When I type in the search bar, my words are invisible, however, it does do the search. It's is completely normal on the LadySavings site. Looks great!
    Thanks!

    And if you could let me know on IE that would be great...I don't have an easy way to test on IE.

    So will all of the database lists be done away with, including the Wish Lists? Or just the ability to trade via the lists?

    Thanks @Jorainna ... for including me as I do use the database...sometimes that would be "try" to use it, as I have been having a lot trouble mostly with it freezing and I constantly have to start over with all blanks and the latest problem last night, the blank to put the description in to get the ID# was missing. I tried for over an hour but it never appeared.

    All of the trading lists are going away....mine are already gone.

    @busyasabeecrg ~ I this this is the reason you can't see the ID# anymore...no more wish/have lists.

    If you do need your list(s), David can recover it for you and send it to you in a spreadsheet (excel).

    Darn. :( I do like the database lists for specific coupons. I guess I can add them manually to my other WL now. @dkraeer can you send me my WL? Thanks!
