Voting is now open in the two February albums. Please review the Voting Guidelines if you have not already done so.

The March albums are now available. As always, I recommend that you first upload and edit your images in your personal albums first and then move them in to the contest albums in order to avoid the permissions issue.

Voting is now open in the two January albums. Please review the Voting Guidelines if you have not already done so.

I have created two new albums for February. I recommend that you first upload and edit your images in your personal albums and then move them in to the contest albums in order to avoid the permissions issue.

Site changes

I had attempted to modify our theme to use the great new logo that Bill was able to provide us with. Unfortunately, the theme for this site requires three separate sources files to be updated perfectly or otherwise throw the entire layout out of whack. I did the latter, so I had to roll back my changes. I have asked for help with this on the support site for the theme's developer.

Until then, there is a short version of the new logo in place of the big blue face.

I was able to fix the background color on the comments. Previously, there was very light gray text over a white background. Feel free to leave a comment if you like a photo.

New procedure for adding photos to contest albums

Submitted by bsvee on Sat, 01/03/2009 - 11:27

Some if not all of you have had an issue with adding your photos to the monthly contest album. If you add your photo directly to the album then you are unable to make any changes to it on your own. To date, I have had to manually grant the original owner permission to edit his/her own photo.

I have tried out the following procedure that works well. For each entry in the contest, add your photo directly to your own personal photo album. Edit the title and subject after you have added each photo. Finally, select "Move Photo" from the menu below your photo and select the contest album as the destination. After your photo has been moved you will be able to make all changes to it on your own.

Isobap Needs You!

I'm looking for volunteers to:

  • Come up with a slogan/mission for our web site.
  • Write copy for an About tab that will describe our club.
  • Create alternate rotating banner images.

As far as the banner images are concerned, select some images but hold off until I'm certain that this is the theme module that I want to use from now on. I'll give you the dimensions later. Perhaps we all could contribute a few banner images.

Add an avatar to your user profile

You can add an avatar to your user profile that will show up in forum posts, comments, and blog pages. Unfortunately, they don't appear anywhere in the gallery.

You can upload your image by selecting:

  1. My Account
  2. Edit Tab
  3. Scroll down to Picture
  4. Select Browse
  5. Select Save

Please size you image to 65x65 pixels. I might eventually select a photo of myself instead of the cat image for BarrySvee. I'm using a separate icon for my administrator account, bsvee.
