An extremely busy personal life continues to limit my free time. Only a temporary problem that will be fixed soon. Mother nature has been cooperative but that will not last. Need to get business taken care of right now.
Big news regarding memberships coming around June 1, 2019. Two months into this project. It's actually been operational since early May (WIWX 8.0). I've pushed back launch date multiple times for the right moment and in waiting found ways to improve. I want to be triple sure there are no bugs. It needs to work perfectly out of the box as opposed to the trial and error approach I typically use. Keeping the details vague until the official announcement.
List of Bug Fixes
- Member forecast page layout improved. Expect more improvements in the future.
- Added email unsubscribe controls so users can select which specific email services they want to unsubscribe from.
- Community page was added back to the account tab. Removed by accident on previous update.
- Chase map graphics for Driftless and Mississippi river sectors redeployed.
- Fixed error with special characters in the titles of storm events and blogs.
- Interactive chase map fixed mutliple bugs such as watches not displaying. Expect more improvements in June. Still working out a time conversion issue.
