Re: More photos on 10/24/2007 06:30:34 MDT Print View

Hi Ken,

Is there a trick to viewing the new pictures in full size, when I go through them, they remain thumnails where they used to enlarge. The thumbnails look great, I wish I could see them in large scale.

Any thoughts?

I just happened to be browsing with a Mac at work and thought I would check how the pictures worked for me. I'm having the same problem with the pictures only displaying thumbnail size when you click on them. Using OS X and Safari.

Actually this is a bug. I'm fixing it right now. I'll post a message to the forums when it is repaired. This is not computer or browser specific. Everyone is affected.

The problem some of you noticed with large photos not displaying at full size has been fixed. Thanks for catching that. It's something I really should've noticed when I posted the new code.

a different Photo bug? on 10/24/2007 19:07:12 MDT Print View

Ken,

Is it your intent that the "leftward pointing" arrow move us forward to the next photo (the one to the right on the same row or the first one on the next row) and the "rightward pointing" arrow move us to the previous photo?

The big arrows move you forward (right arrow) and backward through the photos. The Sort menu only affects how the thumbnails are displayed (oldest to newest or vice versa per index page).

So if you are viewing in "descending order" the left arrow causes you to move through thumbnails left to right top to bottom (like writing). If in "ascending order" the left arrow would appear to move right to left and bottom to top.

Thanks BPL, the coverage on Andy's trip rocks. Only a couple days to go. Good luck to Andy on the conclusion of one of the greatest backpacking trips ever.

One nitpick: the video update titled "September 7, 2007—Elk Show." is actually a large bull moose!

Congratulations to Andy on his expected completion today. I've very much enjoyed keeping up to date via your Podcasts, videos, and photos posted on Backpackinglight and your website.

If you put together a slideshow there's an outdoor retail store in Delaware that would like you to stop by.

Again, Congratulations! Phenomenal accounts, looking forward to a wrap up Podcast.

The Hike Is Done on 11/04/2007 01:58:18 MDT Print View

THE GREAT WESTERN LOOP IS COMPLETE



Andy is sitting ten feet away from me here in Flagstaff, Arizona, the champagne has been spritzed, and the Great Western Loop is closed.

This has been a remarkable finish for Andy and I think for those of us who were able to be here for this moment in history. The day could not have gone any better.

We will have a great deal more to share with you in the next several days. Right now everyone, especially Andy, is savoring this wonderful moment.

Andy,
Congrats and thanks for the podcasts! I enjoyed listening to them on my commute and during my hike thru the Three Sisters Wilderness.

I heard you talk about your sea-to-sea route in Madison, NJ and hope to hear a similar review of this hike. Hope you can put some captions on your photos to further educate us on some of these great places.

Andy, I think you have completely reset the limits and have shown us all, once again, what is possible with the right gear, techniques, training and most importantly attitude.

I look forward greatly to an article (please!) on what gear, techniques, etc worked well on such a long trip, and any improvements you will make for your next extended adventure...we all know there's another on the cards somewhere.

Congratulations mate!
