New Photos Gallery and website makeover
on: April 28, 2019, 09:12:01 PM
New Photos Gallery

The forum now has a brand new image hosting and Photos Gallery.    :152:

The new Gallery far exceeds the older gallery in features and is much more user friendly. Upload limit per image is now a mighty 5MB.

It is fast and secure, with images backup up instantly to secure cloud servers.

Images are delivered by CDN edge servers around the world so they also load pretty quickly wherever you are viewing them from.

Links are also automatically generated for use on the forum.

Not just a Gallery....

The new Photos Gallery is not just a "gallery", it also doubles as an image hosting solution.

It far exceeds the old gallery, has many new features, and is quick and secure. The facility is for members only, you can store your pics and if required embed them easily into forum posts.

The new Photos Gallery does require you to create a seperate account but it's quick and easy to sign up.

Upload images from your posts

There's now an additional "Upload Image" button that's available when you compose your post.

It allows you to upload an image to your Gallery account and once uploaded you are instantly brought back to your post and the image link is automatically embedded.

You can upload one image or multiple images at the same time and all the links are automatically inserted into your post.

No more faffing around with links etc...  :152:

Members who used the previous Gallery

Images from the old Gallery have been migrated to the new one.

If you had a Gallery album in the old gallery then you have already been setup with a new Gallery profile.

Note:  We'll be sending your login details out soon.

Also, any images embedded into posts have had their links updated so they still appear.

A note on Attachments

Please note that for large images members should now use the new Gallery.

Eventually "attachments" will be confined to "non-image" files so all members who wish to post images are advised to use the new Gallery.

Website makeover...

The website has also had a "makeover"...

The main difference is that the website is now "mobile friendly" by default, no clicking on any extra buttons. The colour scheme has also changed, dropping the red for a subtle blue.
