Site programming


Jim,

Any chance you could change a couple of things programming wise?

1. The first has to do with favorites. When I "love" someone's image and it happens that it's an older upload, it shows up way back in my "Images I Love" folder - rather than at the front with other images I have recently liked. You fixed this once before, but it got unfixed.

2. Yesterday I uploaded and entered the contest. Then I went to the Countdown Thread and put my two March favorites there using the photo ID's. Now in "My Current Entries" it indicates that I entered three photos in the contest yesterday. I can't delete them because I do want them considered in the March judging. You may not be able to fix my specific problem, but can you fix it so it doesn't happen to others or to me going forward?

Both of these glitches (as I view them) come and gone in the past. It seems that the way they are now is kind of the default or reset for the site programming. You can change it, but each time you give us a "new and improved" version of BetterPhoto, they revert to the "problem" setting.

  And if you all have any other requests, please let me know here now.

I already have on the top of my list music, slide shows, and search.

Thanks,
Jim

  Thanks for Asking Jim.

When I try to see a gallery on my iPhone 6 plus mobile in landscape mode, the pictures in the gallery get mis-aligned, i.e., portion of each image gets obscured by the next image. If you can do anything about it, will be much appreciated.

  There are a couple of other things that now work less well than they used to, Jim. Not sure you can do anything about them. Again, they came about when you re-did the site.

1. Commenting on others' images is more cumbersome than it used to be. I can't really detail why as it has been so long; I just know it used to be much easier to do.

2. The other thing that's harder is commenting on forum threads. When I click Respond, I am taken to the response box BUT I can no longer see any of the responses previous to mine. So if I'm trying to help someone who asked a question, for example, I can no longer see their question. If I REALLY want to help and need to see the question to do so, I go back to the main thread, find their question, copy it, click the respond box, move down a couple of lines, paste their question there, go to the top of the box, answer the question by making reference to it visually, and finally select and delete the question so only my answer is left. Needless to say, I don't often stop to do all this.
