new.lds.org and "LDS Tools" problem with UK addresses and MLS' "Street 2" field

Postby bgraabek » Sun Sep 26, 2010 10:46 am

I have a problem with addresses at the directory and the maps at new.lds.org as well as with the new iPhone “LDS Tools”.
MLS gives us the ability to store:
Street 1:
Street 2:
City:
Postcode:

It is very common to write UK mail addresses in the following format:
5b Example Avenue
Village
Biggerlocaltown, County
AB1 2CD


Looking at the data I have now found that any time a membership record contains anything in the “Street 2” field in MLS the following behaviour is exhibited:
In “LDS Maps” the membership record is displayed as “Unmapped”.
In the “Directory” the “Show on map” icon is missing.
In the iPhone LDS Tools app the address is shown as (example):
5b Example Avenue
Village
@


On those MLS entries where “Street 2” hasn't been filled the address looks as follows in “LDS Tools”:
5b Example Avenue
Biggerlocaltown, County
AB1 2CD

It would seem that a short term solution to all the above issues is not to use the “Street 2” field at all, but surely the field is there so it can be used?

This is a know Bug, and has been fixed in our latest SVN code. We have a few more bugs in LDS Tools that we are trying to squash, and hope to get something release to the App Store by the end of next week. But it just depends on who of us can devote some time to get these bugs fixed. We will post a post on the Wiki the day the updated 1.0.2 app is submitted to the app store. You can follow that here: https://tech.lds.org/wiki/index.php/LDS_Tools_for_iPhone

Thanks for pointing out the LDS Tools wiki page for me. So that just leaves the LDS Maps problem. Anybody know where I should go with that?
