Hoy becomes Hoy and Walls

By popular request the area formerly known as Hoy in our Area categories has been changed to Hoy and Walls. I hope this meets the approval of the folk from Waas.

You could do that in the 60s appparently! Jim Eunson has posted a series of pictures from a scrapbook detailing this operation, and the first half have been uploaded to the public area of the site today. Come back tomorrow for the rest of these fascinating pictures!

I'm delving into pictures that have been bulk uploaded in the past, that I've held back to avoid swamping you with images that are similar all at once. They don't show up in the thumbnails below, which is strictly chronological by the date the pictures were submitted - so you might not see them. But you will if you use the Latest Additions button.

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...
