I was wondering Ian could we not have the Home Page photo as a slide show so we can have lots of members images pop up and rotate even if its only the best stuff. Rather than just look at the same picture all week.October 3, 2012 at 2:38 pm #1109
Two things to say about this. First, I’m not sure how you go about embedding a slide show in a WordPress page, but I guess it would almost certainly need a plug-in, which would have to be compatible with our main WordPress installation and theme plug-in. And it would probably be nasty, clunky Flash (and so wouldn’t run on iOS devices.) Anyway, I foresee complications, and more trouble than it’s worth! 😉
But, secondly, it is called ‘Image of the week’, and while me and you and a couple of others might spend a lot of time here, the less-frequent visitor probably doesn’t feel they look at the picture all week. And shouldn’t we allow the authors of these photos, which have often had prestigious success in competition, to enjoy their moment of glory by being on display for a week? Certainly, this is a common practice on other club sites – it’s not just about showing a lot of good images, but also celebrating the success of a club member.
(I understand that there is a plan to have a more developed ‘Club Gallery’, the first trial run of which you can see on the ‘Galleries’ menu, as CPS Club Gallery. Maybe that will eventually supply what you had in mind?)October 3, 2012 at 3:24 pm #1110
Ok as per the image of the week I thought there was several top mark 20 scors and so why is there only one image on display. I for one would not be happy to take a back seat if I scored the same and never got to show the world my image.
As for other clubs I have been on many sites and see scrolling images and nice fancy stuff to catch ad keep you interestedOctober 3, 2012 at 3:34 pm #1112
When you say, “As for other clubs I have been on many sites and see scrolling images”, which ones do you have in mind?October 4, 2012 at 10:19 am #1143
Not photo sites. Don’t worry about it. I am sure it is way to hard to do. I just thought tht maybe it was miscue to see all the top photos as there were more than one that scored 20.
best mate is a web designer so I do have a good idea on stuff but hey it’s not for me to say I am just a member that sits ion the back row hahaOctober 8, 2012 at 2:12 pm #1231
The image of the week, as well as giving a successful author a few days of glory as Ian has said is also a clear indication that things have changed when a visitor returns. A slide show on the front page would not do that – it would also distract visitors into watching a slide show when we want them to get on and look at what we are about.
