You are on the backup site for Chessvariants.com. Any posts, moves, or other changes you make here will not be permanent, because the pages and database from the main site will be backed up here every midnight EST. Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

Chess Variants Query. (Updated!) More options for searching in these pages.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I have been working on replacing absolute URLs with relative URLs. But I had mainly been looking for chessvariants.com URLs. I guess I'll have to look for chessvariants.org URLs too.

This page currently has an absolute link to the .org version of mainquery.php. For the page to work in both locations, a relative link would be better.

I tried to test that out on the .org site (new better testing practices, yay!), but found that I cannot log on there because the login page has an absolute url to the .com version of the login script.

Burninate all the absolute urls?

Editing the URL like that is no longer necessary if you have JavaScripts. (If you don't have JavaScripts, the form will probably still work, but without possibility to select multiple categories.)

While that works, it might be better idea if another field called category[] is provided so that you can select more than one in the form, rather than having to edit the URL afterward. (Whoever is programming mainquery.php needs to fix this. The program can check if $_REQUEST['category'] is an array, and if so, to convert it; this is one way to make it work still the same regardless which format is used.)

This is especially useful for finding variants in the intersection of various categories.  For instance, to find 3D variants where there is some kind of hexagonal component (hex prism or tetrahedral e.g.), set up the search just for 3D variants, then modify the resulting URL so that it includes "category=3D,hexagonal".

This could be very useful. I've saved it in my Favorites.

You should be able to get to it without having to look under 'C'
