Recent changes to the website:
Just added a new field to the upload picture page: 'Location'. This allows you to add the location for a moth image (it is optional but will be good for tracking where the moth pictures come from). This will also be useful for images coming from outside the county.
Also, changed the thumbnail size to 100 pixels maximum width or height (was 90).
Note: the general consensus is that images of moths should be titled with their B&F code first, followed by the common name if a macro or the scientific name if a micro. If this name is already used then add 1, 2, 3... to the end etc. For example:
0003 Micropterix aureatella
2040 Four-dotted Footman
I know that some of the original images don't use this rule - will edit these presently.
Note also that the recommended image size of 360 pixels max width or height is not an absolute rule – if you think a picture will work better larger (or smaller) then size accordingly. The blog page (usable width) is 480 pixels and a normal page is 740 pixels. A half full page is 360px (allowing for a 20 pixel gap in the middle!).
Also new is a tick box on the edit page form so you can indicate 'This is a major edit'. Normally, when any page is edited by a new user (i.e. not the one who last edited it) an immutable copy is saved. This is so the page can be restored (if needed) to its prior state! If the same user successively edits a page then no old copies are saved. If you are doing a major revision to a page then you can tick this box to force a copy of the original to be saved. Note: at the moment these immutable copies are just being saved and backed up – you can’t see the version history or restore pages (yet)!
Finally, added highlighting so you can show up key words and phrases. Changed the notion of keywords so anything in highlight is now a keyword. The highlighting uses [!highlight this!] markup. This could be good for marking very interesting items in long species lists.
