|We added a very powerful tool to explore the database content: MixesDB:Explorer.
"Eplorer" might be a bad word, but it fits best.
The Explorer enables browsing tracklists, file details, images and a lot more. Check it yourself, it's all described on the page.
Atm we reorganize the category pages. This includes a few changes:
Categories with belonging images now display the last 4 images added to that category. This is funky for cats like Resident Advisor cos it displays the last 4 podcasts (with mix page link) and other categories display the latest flyers or artist images. So we will remove the normal images we used to add on artist categories.
To make this possible we already started categorizing all old & new images over a year ago. We will add some info about categorizing images in the Help section and on Special:Upload.
A new category header is added atm to have links for "Explore tracklists" and "Explore file details". Default are also the search box and "Jump to year". All of them may not make sense on small categories or standard shows or cats without tracklists, but you don't have to use it and the default display saves a lot of ressources instead of checking each category each time you open it.
Let us know if you have problems with the Explorer, find bugs or have new ideas what to add.
