New Variable Requested - Year Only

Recommended Posts

yea, i just 'make up' a month and day to get it through..as with the library category: how do i know when it opened, unless it states so on the 'plaque'...for this i use the day i 'visited' since it was 'open' on that day...

I would like this. I don't like making up a day and month, because that creates misinformation. I just leave it blank, which is a shame.

Anyway to get a variable that would accept simply a four digit year?

 

How about a textbox accepting non-decimal, numeric only answers?

Tried that but that variable REQUIRES that you enter a singular and plural unit , i.e. year and years.

 

So a "Year Dedicated or Erected" variable shows up as:

 

1984 years

 

I would prefer not to see the "units".

Good point. You can also use a regular (short) textbox, but as Bootron pointed out to me earlier that would probably screw up sorting by variable later on. He's put this on his list of fixes but it will have to wait until after this next update.

AD may work as a unit. Yeah, kinda weird but it'll work in a pinch.

I've used this for the New York State Historic Markers category. Works well. :(
