Hi again,

We have a small problem with the submission database.

If you go to "show urls" with the filter of "show all" and with the
MAX_CUSTOMER value set to 10,000 - you get a result of 31,275 urls.
Which is right.

If you then change the filter to "Awaiting Google Submission", the
result is 30,370.

However, if you check the activity report, it shows that we have
submitted 4,741 to Google (which _is_ correct).

So, surely the show urls page awating google submissions should be
31,275 minus 4,741 (26,534)?

On that note, this is the only (possible) bug we have found, so brilliant work!

Your input would be appreciated.

Many thanks

Hello, bmcompany:

The problem was in calculating the total amount of URLs on the show
urls option, the engine was working well, it was just the pager, this
is the correct data:
-Setting MAX_CUST to 10000
-Setting MAX_ACTIVITY to 10000 (instead 2500 as it was)
-Total number of URLS: 31274
-Total number of URLs pending Google Submission: 24187
-Total number of URLs submitted to Google by all submitters: 7087 
 (admin 4846, andy 1970, marie 271)
So 31274 - 7087 = 24187
I have double checked it, but in any case, don't hesitate to request
for any modification.
I have also fixed a small problem with date filter on the show URLs
option and I have modified the activity report to don't show anything
when you access the option, only when you select something on the
I hope now everything works! ;-)

Thanks, that seems to work.

A couple of things. Firstly, when i log in as username "Admin", it
lets me in with a blank password! Eeek!

Secondly (ill add some $$ as a tip to top up the question), can the
'admin' have the ability to add a personal message (different for each
submitter) that a user will see when they log in, along with previous


Welcome Marie, here are your submission notes

25 Dec 2003 - Merry Christmas Marie!
06 Dec 2003 - Please can you email your overtime hours to
05 Dec 2003 - Please leave Altavista for the time being
03 Dec 2003 - Please start on Alltheweb

That ok?

Hello, bmcompany:
  I have added the concept of home page, now, when any user access the
site, it's redirected to a home page where are listed all messages
directed to him/her.

If you log as admin, you have a new option, called User messages, you
can post a new message to an specific user or to all users at once.
Also you can delete any message.

I have also removed the blank password for login.

I hope this is what you were looking for, please, don't hesitate to
request for a clarification.
