Private Web Browsing

Some web browsers such as Firefox and Safari offer a "private browsing" feature. Please be aware that if you enable private browsing then you will be logged out of ISOBAP immediately after logging in. Some pages may be cached by your web browser and it may appear that you are still logged in. You might also, for example, log in to vote but then not be able to cast any votes.

If you are unable to vote or upload photos, make sure that you are logged in from the main page and that you have not enabled private browsing.

Server upgrade Feb 19

My ISP has informed me that all of my domains including this one will be upgraded on 19-Feb-2010 between 10:00 PM and Midnight (US Central time). ISOBAP will be offline during this time. You can Google, "time in minneapolis" to get the server's local time.

Hopefully this will offer some performance improvements as well.

This change will also upgrade PHP from v4 to v5. All of ISOBAP's software runs on PHP. I shall look for issues with the software following the upgrade. Before reporting defects to me, please log out, refresh your web browser, and log back in again and see if you still see the issue.

Voting is now open for the January contest albums through February 7. Remember to judge each photo full-size and not by its thumbnail alone. You should cast exactly three votes in each category. Please review the Voting Guidelines if you have not done so already.

Site Maintenance Complete - Please post wish-list

Site maintenance is complete. I had tried to put in the ISOBAP header image that Bill gave me some time ago but unfortunately the sofware is caching the old image and won't let go. After multiple posts to the software's support forum I have opened up a bug issue about it. Perhaps later on I'll have the top banner looking the way I want.

In addition to installing software updates, I have added the following improvements:

  • We finally have a Member Directory that is accessible when logged in. Look under the "Member Information" block to the right.
  • There is now a word processor-style text editor for blog entries.
  • I have removed access to the Forum. It wasn't used much and when somebody did post to the forum nobody noticed.

Please add your comments with wish-list items. I might be able to make changes or find plugins for those suggestions. Note that there still does not exist a proper voting module for the gallery.

Site Maintenance in Progress all Weekend

Members should not upload or modify any photos or posts until I have announced that site maintenance is complete. In addition to upgrading the software I plan to experiment with layout and new software modules. The site may appear completely out of whack at times.

Site Maintenance Jan 16-18

I plan to do some long overdue site maintenance next weekend. The software is several versions behind, which include security patches against hackers. I also hope to get the WYSIWYG text editor working again as well as look for some other enhancements.

Please get your images uploaded before next weekend or wait until the following Tuesday. If the upgrades go horribly wrong then I will revert everything back, but you will loose any uploads or comments you leave over the weekend.
