  • 3/30/21 - We finished what was hopefully the last part of the forum upgrade we started earlier this month, the rebuilding of all of the permissions. In our testing everything seems to be working correctly but if you have any problems please post in the "Forum Technical Support" forum and we will take a look at it. You will also see a few changes with the main forum index. We have moved the AAW Member Forums to their own group and the Marketplace Forums to their own group. This simplified the permissions configuration for the forums and hopefully it will make the forums a little easier to naviagate. Thanks!

Gallery Images: Title and Description now required

This is a familiar requirement for most forum members. In the previous version of XenForo Media Gallery, it was a requirement that a title had to be entered or else the image could not be uploaded. With the recent forum upgrade, XenForo allowed image uploads to the gallery without entering a title in which case the filename would become the title. A typical filename would be something like IMG_1234.jpg which is totally useless to anyone viewing the image. Fortunately, Chris was able to modify the code so that now you must enter a title AND a description before you can upload the image to the gallery. The title doesn't have to be "artsy-fartsy", it can be something simple and descriptive like "Little Maple Bowl" (assuming that it really is a little maple bowl). In the description, you can say whatever you like such as the wood species, size of the turning, what finish used, how many times it flew off the lathe, etc.
