PostPosted: Apr 12, 2010 06:58    Post subject: Finally we can add photos in the logical sequence!!!!  

Right from the start of the forum, due to a problem that was hard to resolve, photos attached to postings needed to be added in reverse order. So the photo that you wanted to appear first had to be added last, and vice versa.

One we worked out what was causing this error we realised that if we corrected it all the earlier postings would be inverted with the photos in reverse order. After a huge amount of effort Xavi has managed to modify the system so that in the future postings will work as one would expect (first photo added will appear first) but things done in the past are not affected.

So from now on you should add photos in the logical sequence: so add the one you want people to see first, first and the one you want to be last should be added last!

For a while we are sure that some people will not see this message or will forget so will use the old system, but do not worry as we will tell them and also correct the order of the photos. In the end a small amount of effort now will make it so much easier in the future as new people join the forum. We will no longer have to always explain about adding photos in reverse order.

Thanks Xavi for all you effort, little by little the forum is improving its technical capability. ;-)

Jordi

Way to go Xavi and Jordi, you are fantastic!

A test, these should go clockwise.

Oh THANK YOU! I spent ages trying to do things in reverse on my show reports and it was a tiring project, so this will make things much easier when I do my next report, the Houston show, in a couple of weeks!
This is really helpful and again, I appreciate it and thanks!

Thank you Jordi, I love posting on this great forum. Will be at the Houston show all three days, so although it won't be anywhere near as grand as the Tucson show/photofest, it will be fun.
All my best, and Jim says hello.. Gail

BTW, thanks to James too for the translation of my previous text to the right English language ;-) as well as for his continuous support.
Many of the skills that we improve here owe something to James. To have him at the end of the line (same as John S. White) is a wonderful treasure for us. Thanks again to both.

Jordi
