one of the features I particularly like about this software is that when you hit the back button it takes you back to the exact place on the page where you left from. For instance, if I'm viewing Y. brevis on the species index and click back it takes me back to the species index at Y. brevis, not t...

.....

nevermind...one person hardly makes a percentage. :lol:
It does, I just cut off the list in my summary. The size of 1440x900 accounts for 3% on the loach forums, 2% on the main site, and 5% on the community site. :D

My screen res is 1440x900. I sent you one. Others are even worse. :lol: Updated Firefox 2.0 (but I think I already told you... 8) ) Phew, thank goodness! I was afraid you were talking about our new community site! Yes, lots of other sites on the internet don't scale well to large monitors and the b...

I actually have a rather wide screen monitor. Many pages I view end up with the 'frame' being overwritten by the text. Rather annoying... Shari, can you post a screen snapshot of that when it happens? (Hit the print screen button on your keyboard. You can paste it into a photo editor, or even Micro...

This is a test. I want to see what this look likes from a link: http://community.loaches.com/species-index/sewellia-lineolata Hmmmmm.......I've looked at it 5 times or so now and every time the last photo doesn't appear???? (that's the Male sitting on a rock with bubbles rushing by) I can see it on...

Ugh! Does anyone in the world have their screens set at that big? Yuck. But I see what Martin means now. I think wrapped text can work well, but I can see that it suits more browsers if you have the horizontal space. Huh? 1024x768 is average now for a computer monitor. (I'm assuming that the web br...

Mark, try resizing your browser window to 1024x768 and you should see what Martin's talking about. These are the kind of things I usually touch up when I go through pages and publish them, so it's not a big deal and I'm happy to adjust things. Usually I'll just add a horizontal space in the HTML tha...

Until my fifth, this will be a tentative dance. I'm sure it can be done smoothly soon. What's this with your fear of keyboard shortcuts? Telling someone that if they press more than one key at a time reduces a step should be a revelation. Martin: You have a PC, right? Control+c is an easier way to ...

Martin, I went ahead and updated all of the old species profiles (where the state was published, not public-draft) with the new 600-wide images where appropriate. So, all of the old profiles should be finished.

Now, only 30 newer profiles to add the photo searches to...

I'm getting a better hang of this, but I've got a problem with Botia dario. I accidentally created a folder in the photos section called "Botia dario" and I can't seem to delete it. Also, is adding the direction to the other photos (not on the species page) done by Jeff or Martin? Or can we do this...

8) Excellent! I'll attempt not to create any more issues :oops: :D Haha, but think of it this way: If you hadn't created this issue, I probably would never have gotten around to adding a 600x option to the system or learned how to regenerated the thumbnails. (Or figured out that I was running out o...

Now that we have the new 600x size available, I changed the Photo Search feature. Now, when you view a single image, it shows you the 600x image instead of the 400x image. (You still have the link to view the original, of course, but at least this preview is more substantial and fills the screen mor...

I just did Traccatichthys pulcher and the 600 is nice. UPDATE: You don't have to transform the images anymore. I regenerated all the thumbnails. (Let me know if you find any broken thumbnails. I was running out of memory on the server and had to adjust the settings. The correct settings for storing...

Those options will work. I've only used 400 or 200 though. Couldn't really see the point of the others apart from original- size and tweak then it. I LOVE the "trick"...... Would you like me to mod the pics I screwed around with or do you want to check them? I'll upload new stuff and put the main p...

Yes, let's hear what people think. Nobody really much gave any feedback before did they? I can't remember. I found that 400 x 400 worked with portrait photos (i.e. didn't crowd the text too much), but it looked bad with landscape pics. ....and most of the pics are landscape. Martin. Yeah, there was...
