Is there going to be a system worked in where it can credit two different people (one for the front, and one for the back)?


Yes it will be.

So far front and back always came from the same user.

Recobanchou should send you it's whole archive again.
Then it would be settled for at least 80% from the Database :-)

It's just there now.

If I ever receive a back cover in good quality -- I sadly trashed quite a few in the past -- I will add it at the same time.

Excellent news, Mr Admin! Back covers are really important too; but I know: a lot a extra work for you...
Thanks a lot

This one definitely benefits from getting a back cover.

The front one is a little "dry".

Works for me, Opera 12 under Linux (Ubuntu 14.04).

If back covers are desired, I have many already posted (along with interior covers of multi-disc sets) & others I could provide.

I'll be sure to try to provide as much back covers as possible. How do I do that, anyway? Do I have to mention in the e-mail if it's the front or the back (I have sent some front covers, and they haven't been accepted, yet.)?

I'm using OSX 12.9.3 and Safari 7.0.4. It seems to only show the front. The "floating" feature works fine.

In Firefox 18.0.1 on the same system the flip works fine.

If I may be a negative Nelly for a minute, while I very much appreciate being able to see the back cover, and I appreciate everything about this site I should say, I'm not a fan of the modern day web page that insists on running a bunch of code to size an image and all that. I'd much rather things were like how they were back in the days of Laserdisc: click on the image and you get the image. Click the Back button and go back to where you were. No extra step in trying to save an image, no extra scripts to crash or hog up resources.

My whining has concluded. :)

... also updated the search results (if you click on the "P" to see which one has cover) to differentiate the titles with both front and back covers available.

Example: Uriah Heep: History - Easy Livin (1985) [SM068-3070]

In a "Uriah Heep", it will have a different icon:

I think back covers are a great addition to the database.

It would be nice to be able to switch between front and back covers while they are full sized. Currently, I have to close the large display of the front cover, switch the thumbnail to the back cover and then enlarge it.

The ‘flip icon’ works well in searches, but not (yet) within the ‘collection’ lists.

Is this feature LD-exclusive or implemented for all formats?
(I plan to scan a few dozen HD-DVD covers next week, it would be no problem to send you the back covers as well.)

I ran this last one on my iPhone, Safari, IOS 8.2, works fine.
I ran across this a few days ago and thought that is great.
Thanks

That's a nice idea, but I need to look at the interaction between the pop-up code (fancybox) and the cover flipping (flippy.js). For now, every time someone flips between front and back, I have to dynamically re-activate the pop-up code one cover picture at a time. I don't know if I could pass a list of 2 covers instead and have the script work as expected.

Completely forgot to update that side, just did!

Can be added to other formats as well, fire away!

I sat down and modified the code to turn Front/Back into a Gallery display (you can navigate with the left and right arrows or just click).
The idea is to be ready to display extra pictures of a release (inside a gatefold, disc labels, inserts, box set contents, etc.).

The pop-up display is based on FancyBox v1, for the full extra images gallery I will try to update it to FancyBox v2.

It was added to all formats!

Examples:

CED :arrow: Firesign Theatre Presents Hot Shorts (1983) [RCA 12235]
HDDVD :arrow: 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003) [30019]
VHD :arrow: First Blood (1982) [VHP78128]
