After months of designing, coding and testing the desired target was met. New generation of SearchLog Joomla component, used for presentation of Amateur Radio logs on the web sites, is now available on Download page. Starting from first encouragement by Kevin N5DX, continued with very cordial supportive activities of Hans SMØIMJ, pre-release testing by Ton PA1CC and John IW6ATQ it was possible to prepare web log with some sophisticated features. Thanks all for their commitment.

In SearchLog, ver.2.x it was possible to include following data items : contact callsign, band, transmission mode and status of confirming of QSO via QSL card (none as blank, sent, received, confirmed on both sides). In this version of SearchLog was used compressing method for store and display of QSO contacts. Duplicate contacts between same station call and callsign were "compressed" to only one record in database.

New SearchLog ver.3.x allows to use described operation type (here named as Basic) but also storing the QSO data one-to-one into database with possibility to assign data to specific activities (contests, expeditions, special occassions, etc.) - Extended type of operation. Using both types of operation supports easy migration from SearchLog ver.2.x as well as it allows in Basic type saving the database size and processing time when this type of QSO presentation is evaluated as sufficient (mostly for award hunters). In SearchLog ver.3.x is fully reengineered against older versions in administration part as well as frontend where new features covers partial search, result pagination, column sorting and inclusion of QSO audio files.

Operation of the new SearchLog you can see on my Page (in Basic mode) and frontend in Extended mode is shown here :

Some years ago I found Joomla Content Management System (CMS) - fascinating open-source world-wide project as very good and solid basis for creating and maintaining of radio amateur web sites. I am very glad that number of friends, clubs and organisations utilize the power of Joomla CMS. Last time I recognized new fresh impressive pages of OM9OT Old-Timers Club SARA Web Site or OK2IEN Web Pages. For more interesting examples see my list of Selected Joomla Ham Web Sites .
