Added statistical data

July 16, 2014 5:02am

Hello everyone,

It's been awhile since I posted an update, I've done small updates here and there but were mostly limited to small things.

Now that i'm unemployed, I have more time to push out more frequent updates. Now that Candition turned 3 years old last may, I thought I'd start off with statistical data graphs which are now viewable on the canyon details page. a few of my favorites are listed below

Pine Creek
Zero Gravity
Baptist Draw

The Idea behind the statistical graphs was to find out if canyons have patterns. Patterns that could possibly show if there was a good time of year to hike a canyon. Only time will tell if this proves useful.

In the meantime, I have a nice list of features to work on and will try my best to dish out as many as I can. thanks for your continued support of Candition. It means a lot to me.



Adding Gravatar Support

September 11, 2011 7:37am

working on adding Gravatar to the site. currently if you have a Gravatar it will show this one instead any picture you have uploaded to this site... I'll add in a "disable" button as soon as I can.

If you don't know what Gravatar is then you can check it out here


Two bugs...

August 3, 2011 4:36am

I have found two bugs after the move,

bug 1: error messages on forms don't display correctly

bug 2: adding/changing an avatar picture fails

let me know if you find any more



Server move complete...

August 2, 2011 2:29am

If you're reading this then the move is complete, there may be some bugs with the mail server for the next few days.

I tried to get things ironed out before I switched the name servers, so we'll see how it goes.

on the upside the site loads a lot faster.

if you have any problems the contact form should work, if not the email is as long as my IMAP server stays running I should get your email.


It's offical, we are moving this weekend

July 30, 2011 4:30am

I have created an account with our new host. I plan on spending most of the day Saturday migrating Candition to the new server and with any luck we'll switch it over Sunday at 2:00am MST

The downtime should be very minimal, I'll try my best not to have any downtime at all.

Moving soon!!

July 29, 2011 6:01pm

I know Candition doesn't have the best load times, that's why I've been holding off on doing any major updates.

I'll be moving Candition to a VPS (virtual private server) in a week or two. during this process there shouldn't be much downtime if any at all

After this transition I'll start adding features weekly

also I would like to thank all of you who continue to support

Working on friendly urls

June 18, 2011 3:06am

Looking at options to make search engine friendly urls looks like I'm going to try out friendlyID and see how that goes.

weired things might happen in the next few hours as I make these changes.


Building the API

June 12, 2011 4:07am

I've made good progress with outputting json from my API for Candition.

Here is an example of some information embedded on a different site.

OK I have closed status for canyons built in.. if a canyon should be closed or opened then you need to contact me with proof and I'll update the canyon accordingly.

any changes that you would like to see to this setup?


Building a "closed status" function

June 9, 2011 8:00pm

right now there is no way to designate a canyon as closed so that is what I'll build today
