Problems/Issues/Improvements Ideas 2.1:
1. CSS Layout for mobile device. TBH, i don't really care about this for sure.
2. Google API limitation. a Major concerns
3. Facebook Graph API
Update Place.DB (Automatic and Manual)
Define a mid-term relationship for Place.DB and Seeing.DB (maybe a Pano.DB)?
Useful Statistic Data
Replace mysql to my_sqli sentence
Rethink the function: judge_seeinside, judgement see-inside...
Implement google analytic
IP rule for certain function
1. How to process place results generated by Google Maps API (Async) to db?
-> 1) generate a click button within the async function.
-> 2) generate an auto-run php page.
2. How to curl the place results generated by Google Maps API (async) to a html.element?
-> 1) Curl does not work on async page. (empty element)
-> 2) Include the Google Maps API script on the parent page
3. Improve server efficiency:
-> A test reveals that curl is 50 percent faster than file_get_contents.
-> Replace file_get_contents with curl function.
4. Website automation test solution:
-> Tried Selenium webdriver, but was unable to figure out a way to make it work on wamp server.
-> Tried Selenium IDE, Works, however it had file size limits for processing codes(20KB?), and also there was no flow control (if-else) at the moment for testing purpose.
-> Turned out a solution which is to connect the server with localhost, and write php pages to the server via fopen(ftp), and then automatically run these pages to process results.
5. Encode the imgurl of all pano:
-> Applied JSON to communicate with g.ymc2.com (url shorten service)
6. fopen($ftp_path): failed to open stream at certain time ?
-> It seems like the hosting server issue (connection error or what?)
-> Use curl to do ftp method. (not sure if doing this is right, but it temporally works!)
7. The owner-response-rate (Google Reviews)
-> Find the recent 10 reviews and check to see if response from the owner exists
