Photos Page Changes Today

We have some changes coming to the photo gallery and I wanted to make sure you are all in the loop.

A few days ago our photo gallery was compromised and some garbage loaded by a hacker. It's an old piece of software and despite updates is likely to be vulnerable again. We've cleaned up the mess but the photos page has been unavailable to members for several days as we assessed future risk and possible changes.

Several versions ago of vBulletin (our forum software), a Member Album feature became available and we are going to migrate gallery images to members albums. They are much easier to navigate and also less prone to breaking. The gallery categories will be retained however to make sorting images more flexible.

Members will now be able to manage their images all in one place and add new albums as well. A new album can be associated with one of the existing categories or not. It can also be made private.

You will be able to edit your albums, move images from one album to another and edit the names of your albums. You'll also be able to edit images more easily. One final thought... Since albums allow you to leave long comments, you can add trip descriptions, and anything else you think might be interesting right there with the image.

Once the images have been moved we'll post a few screen shots of how you can load new images and manage your Albums.

In the long run this change will keep the site more secure and make managing images easier - in the short run, there will be a bit of a learning curve. Thanks for your patience and we migrate images and work out the kinks.

To add then in posts: When you have the reply editor open, click "go advanced" at the bottom of the reply editor. You should see options to manage attachments in the next screen.

To add them to an album:

Go to your User cp and look for the link to pictures and albums in the left side menu. You can set up albums and drop pics into them. These are the pics that display in the front page rotation and from the photos tab at the top.

Once you have set up an album, you should see links to upload images on the album page.

Click on your album (from your user cp or profile page) to see this.

That exists, takes me to my albums as it should.

I click on an album - There are NO options to upload or add photos period. I can email you a screenshot if you'd like.

My pop-up blocker is turned off

I see that you have this album set up with no images loaded. Mountain Buzz - mvhyde's Album: 2012 Teva Game -- Homestake Creek

Can you get a screen shot of that page? Not sure why you aren't seeing these links...

The last 2 photo uploads have shown nothing but a black screen on the portal. The last one was a digital image of a rose blooming....so I deleted it. The latest is kind of a neat picture of a disabled paddler, in a wheel chair, on a SUP board. However, you have to click on the black screen to see it. What's up with this, and how can we change/improve on it?

Thanks
