Hey Burnie,

Your vehicle details have not been saved - Please go back to the My Rig page and reenter the stuff and hit the update button at the bottom. I know what you have done and I will have to write code to make sure that the page data is saved before you can go and load images. This will be a tomorrow fix however. I have had enough now. You can click on your image in the forum to see your rig details page but this is also not completed yet.

It is happening though.

Good night and all the best.Regards

Oh why not leave it live now. I have done the testing and this little part seems to be working. I have not yet finished the page that shows the Members Rig if you click on the image. I will do this now.

Yes this is a members only feature so why not join right now and not only support exploroz.com but show the world your pride and joy. We are about to also add the members trips and members trip reports sections to the site in the next few days. As my footer now says Always working - yes we are.

EnjoyRegards

No worries Melissa,

More to come as you can see I am still play with the format. With line without line etc etc. I have also enabled the customers as per this logon to get their logo put in with links to the Business Directory. Ah yes getting better all the time wish it was paying more all the time. We will keep plugging away.

Bruce,

If you are a Priority + customer it is automatic provided that you are logged on as a customer whilst interacting with the site. The above posts were record by myself logged in as customer ExplorOz and as this is a priority + customer it just happens. This means that Priority + customers that interact with the forum get even more branding placements this will be written about in a soon to be release newsletter. We just have to get some time to write it.

Excellent stuff.
Dropped my Cruiser off at the Panel Shop this morning since this section has inspired me to tidy the old girl up a bit. Now if I can just work out how to condense photos down to 50Kb from 750 I'll be able to get a recent photo posted.
Great work and I hope this brings many new members to show off their rigs.Coops

I also hope it will bring new members. There is a new option on the menu under Members called Member Rigs which is the way of viewing the details outside of the forum etc etc.

To get the photo reduced the best and easiest way is to reduce the physical size of the image. The site will only show a picture to a maximum width of 300 pixels. So in your photo program go to resize and set the width to 300 pixels - save as a different name using .jpg (as this has compression) and you should be fine.

All the bestRegards

Great. Another question - I made my picture 500 x 375 to get it down to 50KB. I see from an earlier message that the max width you handle is 300, if I reduce my picture to 300 x 225 ( image size about 27KB) does that help you with space considerations, or have you already done it for me.Cheers

Yes that would help and I should make a mention on the upload page about this, so set the WIDTH to 300 pixels and this would be perfect. It also appear that the alignment is still an issue - leave that one with me and I will work out how to get around this.Regards

Paul,

You need an animation graphics package to do this and then you will need to play around with compression to fit within the 50K limit I have imposed. You will notice the loss of quality with the animations from Wazza and this is to try to make the thing fit in 50K. Lets not detract too much from norm here guys if we all go too overboard it will make everyting a bit hard to read but if you can do it I will not stop you. Enjoy.Regards

Interesting I just tested it and it is working perfectly. Can you go to the page and select hit the Update at the bottom first then try going to the upload image button. The upload button does two things one it updates the Rig information and then it goes to the upload page. So try the update first the try the image upload. Also please tell me what the address bar shows when you get the error. Also copy the error output into and email and send it to me at david@itbeyond.com.au. Good luck.Regards
