      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Photo Gallery Upgrade

Recommended Posts

I really dig the 'Random Images' section! I've seen a lot of cool photos I would have otherwise missed out on.
I still can't believe that someone on a dial-up views the photo gallery. hellno3d.giftongue.gif

Dru, I'll see if there is a way to make those accessable again. At the very least I can make some hack way of viewing them and if people want them in the gallery they can upload them.

 

IMPORTANT: I have discovered some configuration setting problems in the gallery. So, as it is set right now, there is a 300kb max size on each image which is MORE than enough. More importantly, I have set it so that the max image size is width of 800 and height of 600. If anybody sees a problem with me doing this that I have overlooked PLEASE tell me. Reason I am doing this is because our photo gallery is almost 2 gigabytes big now and it's taking up a lot of disk space, and I'm trying to lower the impact on our server speed and bandwidth. Once I figure out how to do it, I will be converting all of the images in the gallery to this smaller dimension. Again if you smart ones out there can think of something problematic about this that I have overlooked don't be afraid to PM me about it.

I seem to be having difficulty with the snaffle porn section of the photo gallery. Jon, why don't you allow me the freedom of snaffle love?

Jon, I am looking at old trip reports and notice that photos from the gallery are all broken. For example from my mt. constance TR, this picture from the gallery no longer exists:

I do find this one in the gallery:

I see a bunch of TRs with this problem. Is the solution for TR owners to just go fix their links?

I don't think the owners can edit their reports any more (expired window of editing time). Also, even if we could, for some reports like the Berge one, changing the URL's would insert gigantic pictures that would make the TR pretty unreadable.

 

Hopefully this glitch can be fixed and we'll have all our old TR's restored.

 

With respect to future TR's with pictures, until something changes, I don't think the photo-gallery currently auto-resizes the pix anymore (I just tried it).

 

If you want your pix to be of a reasonably viewable size for either a TR or in the gallery you should submit the pictures already resized to a nice size. If you don't you will end up with something like this .

Hey, I'm a paying member, and I can't seem to find the photo gallery. Is it only for non-paying members? What sort of a member do I have to be to see this gallery?

The pictures in old TRs don't show up anymore. Is there some way to fix this?

 

For example, in my Backbone Ridge TR, none of the pictures show up. I resized all of my Backbone pictures with the plan to reinsert them, but the thread is too old so I can't edit it anymore. Can a mod help me with this?

It would be nice, at least in the Trip Report section, if posters could maintain their reports (rather than have them lock up at some point). The images for most of my reports moved, and I can't go fix it without bugging a mod. Just a suggestion. wave.gif
