Re: WOW - Loaches.com "Community Edition"

VERY NICE!!! Every fish website should be like this! And I for one have been looking for the right Content Management System to make it happen forever. I'd never heard of the Plone CMS. It is very interesting, technically speaking (based on python and a server product which, to me, is obscure). Fro...

Oh, did everyone notice we're down to only 40 more profiles in this forum? It's only been *TWO WEEKS* since the community site was first opened and I gave everyone access, and look what's been accomplished in that time! You're all incredible! I think we'll definitely be able to start advertising the...

Darned Bamboo! I got it off the web somewhere and thought it had a transparent background (or seemed to) I was going to do some editing on it in Paint and changed the background colour to define the edges better. When I went to change it back it would go any colour but white (which should have mean...

Thanks Jeff, hopefully I've done it ok now. :) I couldn't see how to create an indent in the description text so that it is slightly offset like some of the others are though. Emma There's two buttons in the control bar (where you set boldface, italics, etc.) that indent and un-indent a list item. ...

I tried creating a link on the Articles page to the Intro To Botia article and once again have done it wrong. :roll: Sorry. I've tried deleting it but it the page just comes up with an error message. I think I'll leave the link for someone else to create, and would appreciate some pointers as to wh...

Yes Mark, that's basically my modus operandi now. I save the pics, create a page, post over the text, save, load photos, copy the Clown, open the profile, paste the Clown, add the back link, go back up top and work my way down, changing text style and inserting pics as I go. If I'm unsure about any...

I did it! I caught up! :D Wow, the species index looks FANTASTIC! So many wonderful profiles! It looks better and better every day. Thank you all so much! FYI, I've got a lot of non-Loach related work to do this week, and I'll be gone on vacation for a week starting this Saturday the 18th. Far away ...

Ok, now I'm only a day behind Martin and Mark with about 20 profiles left to add the search to. But when they're at full speed there's no way I can keep up!

That's when I discovered the table. So tell me oh guru, how "simple" is it? As there's no limit on a page, it would seem a great pity to not be able ,in cases like Sewellia lineolata where we have pictures showing sexual differences, not to be able to illustrate that. I know that anyone can view al...

Ok. This is weird. I clicked the link again 2 seconds ago and now the line that is hanging in the image is this one: male, more flowing in the female ............. working on it, eh? 8) Ok, yeah, I see that. That's a tricky section to work out. There's really one too many images in that section for...

Ok, so how the hell are we supposed to design an educational page where the text is attached to a photograph that it relates to with this software? I can't relate to a system where I have no idea what it's going to appear like for someone else with a different monitor. Is the only way with this (he...
