You might have noticed that the Big Update tweaked the newest traditional letterboxes widget a bit--the full address of the locations started displaying rather than just the city. This was actually accidental. The update pretty much affected everything that touched traditional boxes. Anywhere and everywhere, if you saw the name of a letterbox someone listed on Atlas Quest, that code would have broke without any modifications, and the widgets were no exception. I fixed this particular widget, after doing a global search for a key function that I used to display locations, and replaced it with the new function call. In this case, however, I thoughtlessly typed the new function as "Display" instead of "DisplayCity." The difference being that the Display() function displays the full address of a location with the DisplayCity() function only displays the city portion of the address. It's a minor bug, as far as bugs go, and I rather liked it since it let me see what people trying as locations and spotting possible bugs in the listing of boxes, so I didn't fix it.
Wassa noticed that and suggested making that an option in the preferences and I thought, "Yeah, I can do that." So I did. =)
And while I was at it, I also added the option to specify a location that the widget will return new box listings for. Would you prefer the widget only show all newly listed letterboxes in Oregon? Done! Would you prefer to see all newly listed boxes within 50 miles of Seattle? Done! What about all newly listed letterboxes along I-5 between Sacramento and Portland? Done! That last one is pretty cool, don't you think? =) Any search that works on the Advanced Search page will work here as well. I doubt most people would have a need for a list of new boxes along a particular route, but the option is there. That's part of the flexibility this update provided--in the code, I just tell AQ to display and process a "location," and it can process any type of location. That box works exact the same, whether it's on the Advanced Search page or the newest boxes widget or from an app or anywhere!
Cool stuff. *nodding*
So go ahead and update your newest traditional boxes widget to suit your preferences. =)
