The Large Pics facility on the Orkney Image Library of Orkneycommunities.co.uk has returned, and I am pleased to say can in some instances be applied retrospectively (approx 2 years back). Any favourites you want to see large, get in touch and I'll see what we've got on file.
Also there was a short-lived problem about a fortnight ago where comments were added to the wrong pictures. This should be fixed, but if you added a comment between a week and three weeks ago and it hasn't appeared, please add it again.
We are always keen to bring more guests to our table, and to get more pictures and comments on the site. And also to make the site easier to use.
To that end, you will now see social media icons under each picture on the Orkney Image Library, which you can use to post a link plus thumbnail to Facebook, for example, or a link to Twitter. This feature is also available on each page, comment, news article and event on the Orkneycommunities member sites.
Orkneycommunities.co.uk is developing a presence on Facebook in its own right, and rest assured you'll hear all about this.
But there is more!
The thumbnail images will now reveal their captions when the mouse goes over them, here and on the main site, and on the Orkneycommunities News section the group posting the news story is also revealed on mouseover.
On the member sites the page editor has been upgraded to one that works out of the box with Internet Explorer 9, and applied to the News, Blog and (for the first time) Events.
Also on the member sites, it is now possible to upload .docx and .xslx files to the Document Library.
More news as it happens...
