A few more details about the upgraded system:
  • Anything the user inputs is now checked against the database entry. If the value has changed, only that field is updated. This means that simultaneous edits by different users on different fields will not cause the other to be overwritten.
  • All text is now stored in UTF-8 (not just album titles).
  • All album submission interfaces -- adding a new album, adding a new reprint, editing a normal album, editing a child album -- have been consolidated into a single procedure and a single template. (That was a major motivation for this rewrite in the first place)
  • Any valid information the user inputs, including new media entries not yet stored in the database, will be preserved across page loads (the page will reload with an error message if any required field has an invalid value)
