Thats intentional, I don't want it linked to the public yet, only for this forum/testers use. (its just *.php rather then *.html, the url is the same apart from that).
When its ready, I'll change the sever setting to support php on html extension so it will work again.

In the meantime;

Then, when reading a review and then clicking the Back button of my browser, it returns me to two pages before, not to the search I last entered.

Bug confirmed!


I'll switch to temp cookie-based search memory, I was using the URL which isn't too reliable. (fixed)

I also seem to have problems accessing all other pages which have something in brackets in their name, e. g. "Evolution (theory)".

Hm, searching for Bananas gives me the Bananas (Food) review, but searching for Banana in singular gives me no results. Anyway, some great stuff there.

+ Ok, confirmed bug about plurals, I should do +/- S on all searchs automaticaly at the end.

+ confirmed bug with displaced details. This happens because I foolishy assumed all data would be present when loading a review. In this case the "Created by" info is missing, hence its displaced upwards. This one should be easy to fix (fixed)

Cheers

Still, the page's title for me is "Thor review by (username)", not "Thor review by Darkflame". The variable doesn't get inserted.
Cant reproduce this bug, can you give more details or a screen?

Okdoke, a bit later then planned but...taddaaaa.....


http://www.darkflame.co.uk/Rateoholi...holic_home.php
The beta version is online.

Thanks to everyone posting reviews so far and giving me feedback to help make this version.
Specificaly;
Atresica
El_Muerte
Fisho


For their reviews.

Main changes;

+Localy Hosted Images. You can now upload images for your review. Remote linking is disabled. Unfortuntely this means a lot of existing images no longer work. You can fix them yourself by just uploading a new image. Or you can wait and I'll (slowly, manualy) fix them all myself.

+Remade searching php (correlations no longer taken from cookies, increased speed and efficiancy of search)

+Simple Profile Pages added

+About a bazzilion fixs and small changes to interface.



As normal, bug reports, suggestions and changes are most welcome.

An idea:
How about, a system that calculate all your (or any user's) reviews, and finds a person that rated the same things you rated closest to your rating. Then you can view what the person who liked (or disliked) the same things you liked (or disliked) also liked, and you'll know new things that you never tried and you should try (or avoid).
That would also encourage people to submit new reviews.

Sorry if you already said you'd do that or something I didn't read the whole thread.

Yes, that would be a good idea.
The first part is easy to add really;
I already have a table of all users against all other users by correlation....so finding, say, the top ten reviewers that match your tastes and displaying them in a list simple.

By default, all searchs go in this order of closest to your taste, but it would certainly be good to see the list without searching, so you can just browse their reviews.

At some point it would be nice to have a optional "email me if this guy writes another review" style function.

When the site is more ready, I'll have to persuade Billie Doux to register and submit her reviews. Best reviews ever - www.billiedoux.com

Just let me know when it's ready, I really want to make an official invitation thing for Billie.

Sure, I'm not happy to premote it much yet, as its not bug free enough.
I want it in a more finnished state else people might come and get put off prematurely.

Darkf - I found this site about reviews: http://www.yelp.com/
You heard about it? I hope it doesn't foil your plans.

Nah,they seem specialist in location based things. (bars,clubs) etc.
Also, it dosnt correlate.

I did plan to have features in mine for finding restaurants reviews within a certain range, but that was only a small side-feature. I dont think theres much overlap between Rateoholic and Yelp. (I do like there name though )

New version coming soon btw.
Maybe next week

New version with dozens of new features, bug fixs, and complete code changes which you will probably not tell the difference about

http://www.darkflame.co.uk/Rateoholi...holic_home.php

Main changes;
* Browser History works on results.
* Video support for reviews (standard embed codes...tested with Youtube and Bliptv...allthough many more should work)
* Advanced Search functions
* Interface changes
* Added a statistics page, but not much there yet.
* Small adverts added under reviews. Not that relivent as yet, hope they dont annoy.


As normal, please use and abuse the site and give feedback of anything going wrong or which you think sucks.

This is not really progressive criticism, but I dislike the colors of your layout. The logo isn't working for me, and neither are the colors of the tables.
Maybe try a bit more subdued colors, like this:

And try to keep it simple. Readability is one of the most important things here, because I (the visitor) will need to find your website the most pleasing to stay.
