How to use XoloD

How to use XoloD

Please read before anything:
a. Always check the list of available names presented to you during any add-process before adding a new entry. Duplicate entries will be deleted from the database.
b. Use Roman/Latin characters only in names of dogs AND persons. This will slim down the chance of duplicate entries and the database going nuts.
c. Don't place titles in front of dog's registered names for the database relies on names, not titles. And last but least...
d. We don't scream at XoloD, so please, no names in all caps.

1. How to add a new dog

Go to Xolo's - Add a Xolo in the menu and follow the instructions from there.
A field like this one will appear. Fill in the name and press the button!
It will then come up with some names already listed.
a. Your dog is in there -> select your dog or
b. Your dog is not there -> select the last dot 'My dog is not in there'.

The script will take you to the right update-page.

2. How to add sire or dam

a. The parent is already listed in XoloD -> Use the child's Manage-page.
    Fill in the first part of the parents name and select the right dog.

b. The parent is not listed in XoloD -> Use the pedigree's "Add Dog"-links.
    It will work like 1. How to add a new dog.

3. How to manage persons, owners, breeders

Please be considered if you add or update other persons info. Ask permission first to have the info listed in this database.
To list a person as owner or breeder of a dog, click the "Add breeder" or on the "Add owner" button on the dog's manage-page.
a. The person is already listed in XoloD -> Fill in (part of) the last name and select the right person from the list of available persons.

b. The person is not listed in XoloD -> Check the 'is not one of the above persons' to add a new person to the database.
In both cases you are adding the role "breeder" and "owner" respectively.
It is possible to enter more than one breeder or owner for a dog. Clicking on the symbol next to a name does only remove this person as breeder or owner of a dog but does not delete the person from the database.

4. Add a picture

Adding pictures can be done on the dog's editing page on the left.
Please try to find the real location of the picture on the net. It should look like something like

Copy that url into the textfield and check the copyright box. This states that you are either the owner of the picture or have permission to use that picture on the internet. Bladibla, it is to protect team XoloD :)

5. Place a lock

6. How to delete a dog or person

It is possible to place a lock on your dog and/or your own personal information. With this lock it will be impossible to add or alter information by all users.
Health test results can still be placed on a locked dog. Team XoloD will not make any other changes to locked profiles.
To place or remove a lock, simply contact the Administrator with the id number of the dog(s) or person.
The deletion of a whole record (dog or person) is only allowed by administrators. Therefore please always check the list of available dogs/persons presented to you during the add-process before adding a new dog/person. Anyhow, if you happen to create a duplicate dog/person entry, please contact the Administrator and have us delete it.
