Gallery Broken?

Post by Gerrit Loubser » 30 Oct 2013 15:39

It seems as though the gallery function on the forum is not working at the moment. I wanted to fix the pictures in the Patrol History thread, that have been missing for a long time (ever since a software upgrade, I think), but I can't find any way to access my gallery to upload the relevant pictures.

Could other members please confirm whether they are also having gallery issues?

Yes, instead of going to the gallery, it goes to a blank page. I have tried this using different browsers.

Gerrit, thanx for your PM.

Is this a new issue or does it relate to the old one? viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2771&p=30054&hilit=gallery#p30054

The problem with this mod is that the developer never maintained it for the upgraded PhPs - which is very unfortunate, especially seeing some of us lost images. I am still looking for a replacement, but have less and less time. If any of you find a lekka pic mod we can use, let me know.

Thank you
John

John, it could be the same issue. It seems possible to add images to posts, but not to create/view galleries. It is strange, because several other forums that seem to run on similar software have functioning galleries, but then again, I know far too little about the workings behind the scenes...

Thanks for the truly unselfish work that you do to maintain the forum infrastructure for all to enjoy, John :salute: :salute: .

Gerhard, Why don't you create a public album on Picasa or dropbox?

I know it won't recover the lost pics, but at least you'll have your images going forward.

Great suggestions.

I am of course a fan of flickr - for no other reason than I have been using it for many years.

I also created a Flickr group for Patrols and Cruisers in 2008 and has more than 2500 photos, located here:

But, would be nice to have the Gallery integrated in the forum again.
