View Full Version : New feature: Photoplog

We've added a new feature to the site called "photoplog" it's basically a public photo album that can be viewed by all registered users who are logged in. It is not currently viewable by lurkers or indexed by the search engines ( although we may change that at some point ). It's like a blog but with pictures only. Each time you log in you'll see random thumbnails of pics that are already in the categories and down below the list of albums you'll see the most recent uploaded photos.

You can access it by clicking on the photoplog link on the top Navbar just to the right of the SA Store link. Once you are in you can search for photos, view uploaded photos, comment on them and of course upload your own. We've got several categories for you to put your pics in and they are pretty self explanatory. We encourage to load up as many as you like and comment on them too. There is a size limit but most of your average size dig. camera pics will load up just fine. If you do need help resizing just let us know.

Right now we are only using Steeler or Pittsburgh related pics as you can see by the categories; you can still use your personal album to upload pics of whatever else you'd like of course. :yesnod: Please remember to keep the comments clean and civil and of course no porn, sorry not even Steeler porn :D

Remember, any pics you upload from the net are the property of their owners so be sure to put a link in the description of the pic so they get credit. Obviously if you took the photo then it's your property :)

If anyone cannot see the link or access the photoplog or if you have any questions please feel free to post up here.

You all might not have been able to see the PhotoPlog link on the navbar, but that should be resolved now! :bigthumb:

Sorry, NOVA STEELERS: Bad File - File is too Large or of the Wrong MIME Type

That's because the file you are uploading is too big..you need to size it down.

There is a program called IrfanView you can download for free to downsize your pics:

http://www.irfanview.com/
Or
Direct download (http://www.download.com/IrfanView/3000-2192_4-10021962.html?part=dl-IrfanView&subj=dl&tag=button&cdlPid=10865169)

Once you get it downloaded and installed, then open an image in that program and goto to Image->Resize and scale it down and save :bigthumb:

Try and post up a title to your pics when you load them so we all know; makes it easier to track and comment on .

I just added a super bowl category and moved all the pics I found so far into it. We have the 2007 camp album which I see SG has already started loading up too :yellowthumb: the rest of the ones are for 2008 that we'll get moved over as we get time.
