Did you ever get an update on all this Jon?
Noticed a couple of things I thought I’d share.
On the monthly drawing page it lists the dehydrator that was just given away with a pic of the knife set for the March giveaway. Hmm.
Went to look at the 11# stuffer on sale. On the page with all the stuffer’s the price shows
100.00 on sale for 184.99. After clicking on the stuffer itself it shows the correct price 199.99 special price 184.99. Went to put in wish list but the option doesn’t seem to be there anymore.
Speaking of the wish list the last time I placed an order I clicked on send all to cart. Most went but a few didn’t. Had to go back to the item and add to cart from there.
Not sure if anyone else is noticing this but just thought I’d share knowing Austin for sure has mentioned if we see an IS issue to let them know.
One more while I’m thinking about it. Joined the Masterbuilt group but that option doesn’t appear on my profile settings “groups”.
When logging in to Waltonsinc there is a box you can check to remember me. It doesn’t.
Ok…I’m done. :clinking_beer_mugs:
Hmm I don’t see any of those issues, but maybe they fixed them already.
PapaSop I’m guessing that Jonathon fixed the giveaway page. We probably goofed on putting the new stuff in there.
The stuffer pricing was most likely a caching issue. When pricing changes, it can sometimes take a few hours to completely update our cache, plus the cache on our website backend, plus the website frontend, unless we purposely flush everything, which we don’t do often. It usually happens in a couple minutes, but sometimes can take a while longer.
I turned off more wishlist features. We had some abuses with that, and instead of completely fixing it, I just keep disabling more and more of it. I put off fixing it because we were supposed to be on a new website by now, and that would fix things, but that is still a work in progress. Today I’ll be making a lot of progress there though! I’m hoping to have some things to share on our new website within a month or two! There will definitely be some really cool advances in the “wishlist” piece.
Jonathon and I will have to look into the groups thing. I see what you are talking about, but I’m not sure why it doesn’t show up on your select-able options for your profile.
On logging into waltonsinc.com, it should remember you. As long as you don’t clear your browser temp files or cookies, it will remember you for up to a month or so. Do you have any setting in your browser or computer/phone to automatically wipe cookies or browser files occassionally?
Austin What was the Walton’s Android app that mention in a previous livecast?
Tex_77 I’ve dabbled with putting Meatgistics into an android app. It is possible, but will require a bit of time from me to do a bit more development on. I probably won’t do it until we finish the new waltonsinc.com in a couple months. Could also do a informational app with seasoning calculators, recipes, and other static help info. Doing our actual ecommerce site will be another chore, that would be last to do, but anything is possible. I think there is a good chance we can have something out there in the somewhat near future.
There is currently a partial workaround to “install” Meatgistics as an app on your Android phone… In Chrome on Android, go to meatgistics.com. Then, click the 3 got menu button, and go to “Add to Home Screen”. That will allow you to put it on your homescreen like an app, and Chrome recognizes the site as being capable of running as a web app, not a full app, but close, and it will open Meatgistics as a full screen experience just like an app would run.
Austin Sweet, I’ll have to give that a try. I think an app for seasonings/cure conversions rates would be something great to have!
Austin Just went to account log in and same thing, didn’t remember. Pretty sure it’s not in my settings since other sites automatically remember. I’ll check on this though.
PapaSop If you don’t mind doing a screen share sometime, Jon or I can hope on and see what is happening. It’s got to be something weird.
Other thing could be that you do need to clear your cookies and temp browser files. Maybe you have a really old cookie left in there that is conflicting.
Austin thinking the same thing. Been messing around with this for awhile and it could be the browser I’m using. Switched to Chrome from MS Edge and everything popped right in. I know Chrome will save this info but not sure about Edge. I like Edge but has some quirks. May just switch to Chrome and go from there. Thanks. I’ll let you know.
Austin haven’t cleared the cache and temp files in a long time. Could be some of it.
Personal opinion here… Microsoft (MS) Edge kind of sucks… They are in beta to switch to the same base product as Chrome (Chromium is the base open source software). The new beta Edge is awesome, but the default install is pretty bad. MS has realized their browser sucks and they are getting on the Chromium bandwagon.
I’ll have to run some tests here, but I assume the issue is in some sorts related to the old Edge, and if it is, it is probably going to stay since MS is going to move over soon.
Austin totally agree. Thanks for the info.
I also see the dehydrator on the top of the giveaway page, not a pic but a discription of the model.
Interesting. Austin now we have this happening to 2 people. I have trippled check both /sales, /win and /live and none of them are showing me anything to do with the dehydrator?
Jonathon right above the words in Orange that say March giveaway it says Weston dehydrator 80L.
I’m on my Android phone if that helps
Shows dehydrator for me as well just now when I looked. It was weird like that last month when I messaged Jonathon
Plus I don’t know why it isn’t showing “master built”
group by my name?
