You have probably noticed things disappearing and appearing on TropicalPenpals lately but its actually down to trying to get a good photo gallery working. The big problem is I want it to be able to allow people like yourself to add your own gallery to it or add into existing galleries so the photo collection of areas will grow to give a wider picture of an area as well as historical lifelines of buildings and people in areas so you can see areas developing over time and how things looked in the past.
Now what is the biggest problem? There are several firstly TropicalPenpals has a lot of background plugins that are doing a lot of features which I believe are clashing with some of the photo gallery plugins. Next is the fact none of the plugins are upto date, Tropicalpenpals is running the latest WordPress but the plugins are at least 3 – 4 updates behind.
All I can ask is bare with it because once its working it will add a new direction to TropicalPenpals allowing people to see life in video and photography to add a completely new dimension to TropicalPenpals. I am continously trying to make TropicalPenpals not only easy to use but to add as much of an experience without becoming cluttered or dated.
