The next update to Price Tapestry is now available. 14/06A is primarily a maintenance release to take into account moves and changes in PHP and now requires a minimum of PHP 5.0 and MySQL 4.1.23, however to accompany the new Responsive HTML template (available to download separately for use with an existing 13/03A installation) the administration area has received a complete visual overhaul and is also a fully responsive design.

As with all front end pages in the new Responsive HTML template the layout adjusts nicely across 3 sizes - S (typically smartphones), M (typically tablets and netbooks) and L for desktop. I have concentrated in particular on optimisations for small devices. For example filters are displayed by default on medium and large displays, but initially hidden on small displays, revealed by clicking "Filter These Results↓". Note also how the search result info and sort order links collapse and float through 4 different configurations depending on size.
The level of detail included in the price comparison table changes appropriately by size.
Admin Home Page
For the benefit of potential new customers who may not yet be familiar with the Price Tapestry back end, operations highlighted in green require that action to be performed in order to update the site. For example, after uploading a new product feed to the /feeds/ folder, the "Register" action will be highlighted until that operation has been completed. Similarly, if a feed has been modified since it was last imported then the "Import" function will be highlighted.
Field mapping has been separated into required and optional sections, and you can paginate through the records in the sample data display...
Filters can be reordered using the ↑ and ↓ actions...
