Photo Gallery
« on: 31, October 2017, 08:07:06 AM »

Dear All


I have been asked what has happened to our Photo Gallery.  It gives an error message instead of loading the information.


After recording all our competitions (well most of them) since 2006 on the Photo Gallery with captions and reports, the software is no longer supported and it looks as though we have lost most of the data.


Matt is spending time to recover the photographs but it looks as though the captions and reports are lost. 


To just recover the photographs is going to take a lot of work so this is just to keep everyone up to date and say it is being worked on but there will be no new photographs uploaded for some time.


Devastated after all the time it has taken over the last 11 years to loose our modern history.  I misunderstood the situation,  I have been warned that the time is coming when we will lose the use of the photo gallery but I thought that was that we would not be able to upload new information and I expected the existing data would sit there forever.

Wow! thank you Matt for all your work on this.

The photographs have been recovered and the link now works.

I need to look at some detail and I will report further in due course.

Thanks again Matt.
