I spent today getting four of the seven mould stations for the Feather Pram drafted out onto plywood ready for cutting.

Each one took far longer than drafting a batueau2 mould would have, because the FP plans contain less information than JM's, and because the shapes of moulds for a 1/6" planked clinker boat need to be within 1/12" (at times the step changes in the moulds are less than this). I'm hugely enjoying the challenge of needing to work precisely.

Hopefully I'll complete drafting all seven mould stations tomorrow, and get at least one cut so I can post a pic tomorrow night. :D

I've now got the five temporary moulds accurately drafted out onto ply, and have cut one to shape. :D

Unfortunately, I can't post pics at the moment.

Is it only me, or are others also having trouble uploading pics to their Builder Gallery?

When if fails a 'Server (IO) Error' message appears. :help:

I had the same issue. I upload them one at a time directly to my post using the attachment tab below this box. They dont go to my gallery which kind of sucks, but it works. Click on the attachment button, then add files, click on the pic, and when it loads, click on place inline.

Thanks cape man, being a luddite, I can't see the attachment tab below your turtle pic.

Where, what, how do I find the phoBB app gallery Jaysen?

Surely the 'my pics -> my gallery' path will not be wiped out by COVID-19, and work-arounds such as cape man's and yours will become the new normal?

I don't see the "my pic -> my gallery" path anywhere. But I do know Jeff is committed to keep thing things "in place" to preserve the historical content of the forum. My suspicion is that the old gallery is running out of space. But I can't confirm that.

The method I use depends on how you are accessing the forum. Using a computer or tablet like an iPad, there is a link at that FAR RIGHT of the header bar. It is an eye with the word "Gallery".

On a phone, select the menu widget (three horizontal lines), then select gallery.

Making an album is. bit more tedious...
1. go into the user control panel
2. select the gallery tab
3. click create sub album and follow directions :)

I do NOT recommend any of us MOVE photo from the old gal as we would need to update every post that refers to the old gal. There isn't a good way for us to do that. There are programatic methods, but the time/cost to do that likely outweighs the limited value.

Hope that helps.

Sorry... you only need to do that to organize your photos... To up load a photo...
1. access the gallery using the correct method.
2. on the landing, page click the "<your username> gallery" (should be in the thing that looks like a forum topic)
3. Click on the upload button
4. Select files and upload

At that point you should be able to create subalbums.

To link an image into a post...
1. go to your image in the gallery
2. Look for the "bbcode" field.
3. Copy the BBcode. It should look like

Code: Select all

[image]1234[/image]
4. paste that into your post.

Jaysen,
Thanks for your assistance.
Steps 1-2 in first chunk above go ok.
Step 3 throws up a page where I nominate which album, and which pic to upload. I've tried using existing albums, and a newly created one. Neither works.
