GrandPre Gallery Grand Opening!
« on: February 24, 2005, 09:01:59 PM »

Crack open a bottle of butterbeer! We have a gallery!

You've all been patient, and I really appreciate that. It took longer than I thought it would to find something that would integrate as well as I'd hoped with what we already have. The only problems right now involve logging out from the gallery: as in, it doesn't work. The integration team is working on that, but don't hold your breath. Instead, just follow the handy forum link on the main gallery page to come back here if you want to log out.

20 points to Shelly for the name, and 5 to everyone else who suggest names.

The gallery is at http://hogsmeade.us/gallery/

Oh my gosh, it's gorgeous! Wow! Thank you, Ping, both for the lovgely gallery and the points. Yay!

I'm going to have to start finishing all this half-done fanart I have laying around, no? ^_^

One other thing I forgot to mention: The gallery only supports .jpg and .png images. I don't have and can't install the software needed to do more.

A couple of other points that Shelly found out. Once you're at the gallery, in order to upload anything, you have to make albums. You have to click on the "admin" button, then click on "albums," and you can pick the categories to add albums to. You have a personal gallery, and you can make albums there.

Feel free to add fan-art, collected movie images, or whatever else -- as long as it follows the "PG" rating of the board. Anything inappropriate will get you blocked and/or banned. If you're not sure if something is appropriate, ask me. :)

Just outta curiosity - are images that have nothing to do with HP or ourselves allowed? Say I want to upload a bunch of random icons I made ... could I?

Sure. :) That may have to change in the future, but for now, we've got lots of space, so feel free to upload anything you want to share. :)

Just one question:  when did we get "upgraded" from G to PG rated on this board?  :)

Um.... When I forgot? :)

Though apparently the MPAA is cracking down on non-approved uses of their ratings terms, at least for fan sites. Some days it's very confusing to be in charge of a website!  ::)

Hmmm... I'm not quite sure where to go to upload. I have some stuff for it, but not sure where or how to. Any help would be appreciated.  ;D

Do you have the option to switch to an admin mode? If you do and take the option, it should give you an "upload" button.
