That's not that bad but I don't think we have the funds to do it.


We've been good in the past at a whip round, we got our name on Redvictor for life (I do bits for them to ensure that), Became Founder members of the 5 second club AND Bought x2 Even shelters.

So, It's doable.

Unfortunately I've not logged on for ages. I have had a massive amount of help from the club site but the sad fact is fb is easier to post and upload pics. I would prefer to only use the site because the info on here is more reliable unlike fb where the masses try and tell you the cause of your brakes being spongy is because your head gaskets gone! :lol:

Hey Hot-rod, I did make some enhancements for photo sharing and also, if you use Tapatalk (available for android and iOS) then you get a more “Facebook-like” experience including direct pic, video uploads, updates on posts, subscribe etc.

If there’s something more you’d like to see and/or you need help with Tapatalk - just shout and I will try my best.

Cheers will look in to that. If I'm honest I've always just shut that window down when it's asked if I wanted to use it. :lol:

Hi cliff, when i look at a lot of the photos that have been posted i cant see the full picture, if there is lets say 5 photos then i will see a third of them, i then i have to scroll down to the bottom of the 5 photos and use the slide bar to move the rest of the pictures in to view. Can this be looked at or is it a setting i need to change in my control panel. thanks.
Phill.

I still log in occasionally but as has been pointed out, FB is killing forums.

It's not just this one, it's all of them but it's never going to be like the pre-FB days as it's just more convenient to use no matter how mobile friendly a forum may be (TapaTalk can do one lol).

People will go where the people are, where the responses are & where it's most convenient. The only annoying thing is the amount of Calibra groups on FB, see the same thing posted about half a dozen times yet still seen by pretty much all the same people!

Hmm, I wonder if its browser related - I tested with chrome, IE and Safari but not FF. I’ll try to set it up next week and test.

This is what i mean Rich and Andrew, this from cal16v wip same page. The first picture has the slide bar then on the same page the next photo is fine.
I'm not sure if it's the size of photo being uploaded, a setting i need to change or trying another browser like chrome.

Hi Phill,
Some (most!) of my pics are very large in size so I suspect this is what you are referring to. Perhaps the forum can be set up to reduce pic size to avoid the scrollbars? Or we could just upload the ideal pic dimensions if we knew the limits?

On a side note I cannot see the pics you've must have re-posted... this is a known change of service issue with photobucket afaik.
