    Sorry for all the downtime and Gallery not being available. I've spent all day fighting with server problems. and the server is kicking my butt. I have the site back up but not yet the Gallery.

    I know you'll beat those evil servers. Hopefully the problem doesn't waste too much of your time.

    Wow, I wasn't expecting that. I may never have meant that more than this time.

    *devastatingly handsome record store owner accidentally references impossibly cool record and pretends he planned it all along*

    glad you got it, Mark. Everyone else here is probably too old :cool:

    Good luck with it Amin. There are times when I am glad I am a technical idiot!

    Aaargh!!!

    I finally figured out what was wrong with the Gallery at Mu-43. After a server MySQL update, I had to change one of the settings in the gallery software from "mysql" to "mysqli".

    Same software here, same fix, right? No work!!!

    :dash2:

    not sure if there is a Gallery or upload link yet

    if you want to post an image …. just go back in your history to the last time you posted and click on that link

    I hadn't thought of that Bill, I was able to get to the gallery by using my history from 2 days ago and I successfully loaded up my day 3 photo. Here's a link to the gallery that may work for you folks who are suffering withdrawls...... https://www.photographerslounge.org/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=826

    I keep trying new things to make this work, so Luke's method may work one minute and not work the next while I am changing things. I cannot figure this one out. Just trying my best not to break anything new while I try fixes.
