Progress Report

I'm making a brief comment here to let folks know I'm still slugging away on the website but have to divide my time between a number of activities so progress is not as fast as I would have desired. I have upgraded the first eight crew pages to the new format and hope to have them all changed over in a short while. I hope everyone stays healthy and prosperous.

New format for crews pages

I am converting to a new look for the crews pages. You can see a preview here. It will take a while to convert all of the pages to the new look. Some of the pages with images relating to the crews will be consolidated into the new crew pages as part of the slide show plug-in on the bottom of the page. Other collections of photos such as log books and scrapbooks will be put in image galleries but will either have their own pages or will have a tab in the respective crew page. The few people that do not have JavaScript enabled will still be able to see the images, but they will all just open on one page. Thanks for visiting the site to find out about VPB-118!

VPB-118 Sub-domain

I'm loving my new site hosting situation. I created a sub-domain on my site for VPB-118. This is no biggie and as a matter of fact none of the paths on the new server are affected. If you are using bookmarks to go to the site, you will possibly need to update them, however, because I took out an unnecessary level that was on the old site (entirely my own fault). So if you have been getting "Error 404" messages, the reason is probably the new paths to the VPB-118 stuff. So I guess I should tell you the address for the new sub-domain:

Hosting Change

I have finished changing web hosts. This will result in considerable savings over time, plus the web server is one that I have a little more familiarity with. One immediate change you can see is if you attempt to go to a nonexistent page, you will now get a "404" error page with links to working pages. I know that shouldn't be a big deal, but I've actually worked on a couple of sites where this was not possible to implement without a lot of work!
