Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.
By scot in Site Updates on Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010
Yes the plural on the updates is correct as three new changes have occurred over this past weekend on Two Beer Dudes web site. Even though the site has been up for about six months or so, we still consider it a beta. We have a ton more plans for the site and hope to continue to make it more user friendly.
Google maps is now enabled. This update actually is in two parts. The first is the use of google maps to plot an establishment on the web site. There is now a link, supposedly looking like a map, to the right of the establishment name that links to the map page. A full beer glass to designate the location on the map. The second part is listing any establishments, up to 10, that are within a 20 mile radius of said establishment. Since this is retrofit, not all establishments have had latitude and longitude set, so once they are clicked on, this data is updated. Since I am from the Chicagoland area, nike kobe 9 elite gs I clicked on all appropriate places nearby and the right-hand column shows those places nicely.
The second update is the search feature is now actually functional and tied into the database. Now you can select beer, establishment, or user and receive a reply back about the availability of that information in the database. It currently just breaks up the search criteria into individual words and searches each. The functionality of the search should be expanded in the future.
The final change of the weekend was adding content to the about us page. I cannot really take credit for this one as Rich created all the content that is on the page. I still have to create my section of the page. Now you can get some exciting information about the Two Beer Dudes. 🙂
Contact us page is right around the corner as that is a simple form but probably won’t see the light of day for a week or so. Enough for being easy. Enjoy!
