#1401 closed defect (fixed)

Newly defined default WMS/TMS server not showing up

Reported by: Colin Marquardt Owned by: Chris Browet
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: merkaartor Version:
Keywords: Cc:


It seems that when a user already has defined a an own WMS or TMS server in the config, Merkaartor doesn't join new ones it has pre-defined. (I recently added the NPE maps as TMS and the Oberpfalz WMS server in SVN, and I had to clean my config before they were shown).

Actually, this is per design. The pre-defined ones are only a mean to populate an initial, empty, config.

If we want to provide new servers to users, or generally an up-to-date list of servers, I think the pre-definition is not the right solution, as it means that Merkaartor needs to be recompiled if new ones are added or old ones removed.

Ideally, a centralized list of servers, on for example, would be a solution. But we shouldn't hit to server too hard. Or a global user pref...

I'll think about it.

Oh, I didn't know that.

A global user pref sounds like a good feature.

Aside from that, I think the existing WMS dialog is far too complicated. The user usually finds a URL somewhere, and we should just be able to parse and use that.

I agree re WMS complexity, but some much things to do, so little coders :-(
