New changes to Web Panel


#1

DH Admin folks…

Saw some of the changes to the Web Panel-- Good stuff! I have 50+ domains all on one account, on three plans, and the changes are starting to make managing them easier.

  • Love the new format for the Billing::Services sub-tab! I’ve always wanted to see the domains associated with a service. Plus, the inclusion of a users list is excellent!

  • You wrote: “That’s why, at a customer’s suggestion, we’ve now added the option to get new announcements emailed to you right when they’re posted!”

::bowing::

THANKS!!

  • Is there a new format for the Domains::Manage sub-tab? I don’t recall previously seeing what plan each domain/service is associated with; regardless, that’s great.

I know that you’re also thinking about separately displaying the domains by service/plan, and that will be excellent, since my all-inclusive Domains::Manage page weighs about 241K right now; the download isn’t too bad, but then it takes even longer for the browser to render the page.

One other thing I’d suggest-- Would it be possible to sort the services under each displayed domain? As it is now, the services are apparently displayed in the order in which they were created. So, one domain will list (top to bottom):

Web (Site is “parked”.)
DNS Domain Name
Mail

While another domain’s will be listed as:

DNS Domain Name
Mail
Web (Site is “parked”.)

Because of this, the associated servers are listed in differing orders from domain to domain, making scanning for problem servers a little tougher.

Regardless, I really appreciate the changes–especially the emailed announcements. Just goes to prove that if you ask, it can happen!

thanks, glad you like it all!

Okay that’s no problem, those services are now all sorted each time the same way!

Hi, Josh…

Hmmm… They’re still not sorted on my screen. Looks like the change didn’t stick (need to use more Velcro?).

Still have a mix of orders:

[code]Domains::Manage…

(normal:)

example.com [ Delete Domain ]
Service Type On Plan Status Server Modify
DNS Domain Name thePlanName active [ Deactivate ]
Web (Site is “redirect”.) thePlanName active thorin [ Edit ] [ Deactivate ]
Mail thePlanName active hoggle [ Deactivate ]
[ Add a new service to example1.com ]


(strange:)

example2.com [ Delete Domain ]
Service Type On Plan Status Server Modify
Web (Site is “redirect”.) thePlanName active thorin [ Edit ] [ Deactivate ]
DNS Domain Name thePlanName active [ Deactivate ]
Mail thePlanName active hoggle [ Deactivate ]
[ Add a new service to example2.com ]


[/code]The first listing above – for example.com – uses the more common display order… To me, it seems easier to read since the Web and Mail servers are together. The second listing, example2.com, is what the three or four anomolous one look like. I’m thinking this is due to the service-creation order being used.

Hey! I just thought to check other displays, and sure enough, the same domains are anomolous under Status::System Status as well. Interesting…

[code]Status::System Status…

(normal:)

[/code](And yes, I noticed that “68.3067%” 1-day uptime for Hoggle! But that’s another post…)

All of the anomolous domains happen to be on the same plan, and on the same server, but not all the domains on that plan and on that server are anomolous.

Whaddya think’s up? (If you need specific domain names, lemme know…)

Thanks…

uh whoops!

Jumped the gun!
It hadn’t gone live yet was all!

now the manage area should be sorted:
dns
web
mail

for each and every domain the same way!

The uptime stats page is still in random order… I can add sorting to that too…

Thanks… Looks great! Much easier to scan…

Thanks! That’d be great… Scanning made easy. And there’s a lot to be said for consistency across the interface, too.

BTW-- On the uptime stats page, it’d be great to see the names of the servers as well as the domains (although there’s so much text there now that you’d probably have to knock it all down one size). That’d be especially helpful when trying to see whether it’s Hoggle or Dot that’s acting up again.

Speaking of which… What was up yesterday? There weren’t any announcements, but Hoggle only had 86% uptime. Was that due to another hardware swap or something? And are the changes to Dot complete now?

Thanks again!
