Introducing - Multimedia Gallery
« on: February 22, 2013, 15:44 »
This one has been around for a few months, but ive only made it public over the last day or so.

Multimedia gallery featuring full sortable, searchable galleries of media. Youtube vids, Dailymotion as well as Photos and in the future the ability to upload videos and audio.

The key focus for the coming months will be race videos. All race videos will now be put in the gallery rather than using a thread (which was fairly heavy to load once it gets full) and will provide a full gallery for each year going forward.

Adding a video is simple:
Just go to the relevant race directory
click add item
put in a short name something like "Algarve 13-2"
A longer description
then in the video link box put in the youtube or dailymotion link. (Its important this doesnt include any embed tags etc and should be in pure form such as youtube. com /?v=6786hsfs657s

then the video will be added. From there it will offer a bb code such as [ mg ] 102 [/ mg] which you can use to add the video to a thread as well.

The gallery is easy to get to:
either, look on the video menu item and click race highlights
or in the forum click on the race highlights sub forum and it will redirect you automatically

or CLICK HERE

Over the coming weeks code will be added to make video uploads appear in teh activity stream as well.

This is another step forward into how we present information and catolog race chats, information etc, and also frees up the forum to become much more dedicated to chat and banter with the key info presented elsewhere.

any comments or thoughts, fire away
