The New Photo Album

I've been making some changes at the Dance Forums lately to help make this a cool place for everyone to enjoy with no commercial interruptions.

A couple of weeks ago I added the Dance Directory. I appreciate it if you can submit your links to make this a great resource for people who need info.

And now...we have the brand new Photo Album. We already have 30 photos. Many of these were supplied by Jonathan Marion, who travels extensively to dance events around the World. We also received donations to help cover the cost of the Photo Album from vince a and pygmalion. I hope you will all express your gratitude for their contributions.

Since the photo album is in it's infancy, I would appreciate your help:
1) Please submit your photos. They don't have to be professional quality.
2) Please let one of the Moderators or myself know if you encounter a bug, such as not being able to add a photo. We can make arrangements to email the photos if all else fails.

The next item on the agenda will be to redesign the header of the page and make it uniform across all the sections of the Dance Forums. I'm sure there will be more additions in the future, but the main focus will always be the forums.

Thanks,
David

Another small change I made was to the latest posts that appear at the top of the page. If you click on
, it takes you to the last post of that topic.

I was using testuser to try to figure out why normal users (unlike myself :lol: ), are not able to upload photos to the Photo Album. I still haven't figured it out, but I have a request with Photo Post tech support. I WAS able to get testuser to be able to upload, but I 'rigged it'. If anyone is dying to post, I think I could help you, but I plan to have it working for everybody soon.

I love the new page layout, DM. I was wondering who that mysterious testuser was! Came that close to sending you a welcome PM! lol!

I think I fixed the upload problem. If someone (besides testuser and SDsalsaguy) could please attempt to upload a photo. I don't care what picture you upload (within reason).

Also, I need to learn how to decrease the size. I noticed how much space I took up with only those 3?

Why did the photos end up in Member Galleries and General Dance?

OK . . . kewl!

I tried to reduce the images as small as they would go, but I guess I need to shoot them with less pixels???

The upload button showed right up after I remembered to login! Yeah, I did that :oops:

Thanks for the pictures that you submitted.

Vince!!! I think you look familiar but I don't think we've danced together. I do recognize your wife. Can't help that, she's in all the competitions. Great photos!

i searched the whole photo album for my photo- it wasn't there :cry: :?

Hang in there . . . it took me a few times. DM or SD will hopefully rescue you.
The key things to click on: My Gallery, Upload, Browse, Submit, Process . . . then to upload to start another picture.

If you have any problems still, please let me know. I've helped several people so far. Part of the problem is the new software doesn't fully recognize you and your Session ID and cookie don't match. Here is how to solve this:

Go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Settings -> View Files
Sort by Name ns lkook for cookie
Delete the cookie for the dance-forums

Close all browser windows

go here:
http://www.dance-forums.com/album/

It should work fine at that point.

I know it's not easy, but this should work. I'm going to need to call on an expert (and pay him) to help me with this, but it seems to be at least somewhat isolated and fixable.
