Andreas - Really grateful for your kind offer of some help around the site, and it would be hugely appreciated as we do struggle to keep on top of it all. Please give me a couple of days and I will get back to you on it, I just need to update a few things regarding admin and check a few things over before letting anyone loose.

Great! Just drop me a line whenever you're ready.
Perhaps we could even have a chat on Skype or Google Hangouts. Would be nice to have a face to connect to the name and also, it's a lot easier to discuss things compared to mailing back and forth.

Andreas, we have thumbnail pages - http://www.picturesofengland.com/England/Dorset/Shillingstone/pictures/thumbnails

Or did you mean soemthing different?


Ah, well, no, that was exactly what I meant. How did I miss that?

How about sending the user to land on the thumbs page whenever a "pictures" or "tour" link is clicked?

Doesn't show. Perhaps the server needs some time to update?

Yes, much better!
The navigation line changes in width a little bit as the numbers change to two, three, four digits. Sometimes you don't click 'next' but the number for the last picture.
I don't think though that this is important enough to fix right now.

At the moment 'My pictures' is alphabetically sorted by town. But sometimes it would be practical if you could sort them by county first.

The PoE development list http://www.picturesofengland.com/forum/Site_&_Forum_Suggestions/6737 looks good in my opinion.

Two more suggestions for discussion:
1. Allow the members list to be sorted by country.
2. Make the forums searchable. I'm sure there are multiple threads on the same topics which I think should be minimized. It would also make it easier to focus on a particular topic and save space.

Thanks Andreas. Much appreciated. I've added them to the list.
