Just wondering if the photo forum is up and how to get to it. I'm probably just not finding or over looking it. Thanx Jim

There was a problem with it being upgraded. The software we were using fortunately stopped being developed.

We still have all the files and the data. Looking for a way resurrect it. It’s on our list for sure.

Another thing on my list. We had a customer SQL query that was handling this and with the new version all the tables have new headers. I'll try and get this working again this week.

Access even from my slow-speed dial-up is just fine. It works.
And it boosted interest in the site.
John & Perry deserve a nice vacation. (don't forget to feed the sever gerbils ;) )

Kevin Ivey on the DS facebook page noted that the burial of the rate pages are gone and asked is that one of the tweaks?

First off, I like the mobile version. However, (there's always one of them) when I touch a forum title to visit that forum, the link doesn't change color or highlight like it does on a pc to let me know I have actually selected the requested link. Fat fingers make it hard to precisely hit the link. Yes, I can turn the phone sideways and that helps a bit.

This is on an iPhone6 with iOS10.3.3, if that matters...

This is now back!

On the bottom of the portal page, right side. Click on old-site and there is a link to the burial.

I had an issue where I did a "Preview: and in the preview box it was blank. Tried it twice same result. Finally on the third try
all was back to normal. If I could type better I wouldn't need "Preview' so not really even a problem.
