Hi all,
Really enjoy the site! Just wanted to point out a small problem I noticed when placing crew wanted entries. While editing the boat information, the "Date available" field calls for yyyy-mm-dd format. I noticed that when looking at the "Crew Wanted" listings, this field sorts by mm-dd-yy. Very minor problem, but I thought you might want to know. Best regards, Doug Seamaster46

Hi, Doug:
MySQL database uses yyyy-mm-dd as date default; so does internal sorting, ...etc. Nonetheless, I can always reformat it to whatever upon "displaying".
The "Crew Wanted" listing page currently uses "y-mm-dd" to minimize the page width. I try to put everything on one page, while some folks have bad eye sight or/and small monitor. A wild page means to them two feet of scrolling. This is a tough compromise.

Any suggestion? y-mm/dd ? y/mm/dd ? or just mm/dd ?

Thanks for the reply. I figured it was just a formatting issue. My vote is to keep everything short and minimize the scrolling. Thanks for a great website!
