    The forums will be offline shortly for a software upgrade.

    Will be back online later tonight.

    Hi Sim,

    Has the search function been effected? I get a fatal error when trying (including New Post and Todays Post links).

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: adsense_error() in /hsphere/local/home/invested/invested.com.au/forums/search.php(1733) : eval()'d code on line 2

    Cheers,
    David

    Please let me know if you find any other problems with the site after the upgrade - there were quite a few things that needed to be fixed, so I might have missed something.

    Nope. All the functions I use are working well. Good job on the upgrade!

    Gallery is currently offline ... upgrading the software there - taking a bit longer than I had hoped.

    Okay - I've just completed a major upgrade of the photo gallery software (new software actually).

    It should be much more upload friendly now - so please give it a go and upload your photos to test it out.

    Large photos will automatically scaled at no more than 1024x768 resolution, so no need to resize them yourself (unless you want to minimise upload time). It will also create a medium sized version at around 500px wide - which is ideal for inclusion in forum posts.

    Also, feel free to suggest additional categories you think would be useful.

    What ? You want to upload photos as well ? Sheesh !! :eek:

    Sorry - forgot to check the permissions on the new software. Should be fixed now. Let me know if there's any problems uploading.

    No problem so far ....
    BUT to upload 4 photos it was like a "blood, sweat and tears" operation (still not sure how to upload multiple photos :eek: ) - :p
    Thanks Sim.....:D :p

    I've enabled "zip" file uploads ... if you zip up the photos you want to upload, you can upload multiples at once. I just tried it with 8 large photos (zip files was about 9MB), it worked well.
