Can we expand media to include photos? And if we do then we could have sub sections like Mournes, Donegal, Alps e.t.c and these could be linked to on the respective club trip pages. Will make the website more interesting and give people a real look at what we get up to.
Mournes has the risk of being inundated with rubbish, it could be further broken down into sub groups or there could a photo thread on the forum to handle it. Only the best photos would make the “Media” section.
I dunno, just spitballing here.October 11, 2013 at 23:04 #298
Id say in the trips section, for each one there should be a link to the drive with the trip report and any photos and videos from it.October 12, 2013 at 07:53 #308
I think it’s best to keep stuff off Google drive and on the website so it is cached by Google for SEO, making our site easier to find etc.October 12, 2013 at 12:55 #314
Put them on both. Have a section with reports on the website so general public can see what we get up to, but keep hard copies on the Google Docs as well so that future committees have a history built up of the club.October 17, 2013 at 10:53 #392
Trip reoprts should be articles on the site. Its the whole point of wordpress. They can be backed up on google drive but other than that the website should own all the information on the site.
In terms of photos. we should look at hosting them somewhere else like flickr or google plus as its easy to add, remove and group photosOctober 17, 2013 at 11:00 #393
They are backed up by WordPress and I have hard backups by SQL replication, no need to have them on Google drive
There are gallery plugins for WordPress that are nice we should look at them first as I have set this up so new images are served from a CDN for speed.October 17, 2013 at 11:25 #400
who are you using for your CDN? Clouldfare?October 17, 2013 at 11:45 #401
Was originally using NetDNA for my sites: http://www.netdna.com/
Then found out with Jetpack Photon WordPress use their NginX servers as a CDN for your images free and you don’t need to do any configuring http://jetpack.me/support/photon/
If you copy the image URL from any images on posts here etc they will all be hosted on a static cookieless domain: http://i0.wp.com/www.qubmc.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/536573_4127491233680_267871609_n.jpg?resize=270%2C100
Cloudflare is just my DNS and attack prevention – I don’t use their CDN – I could but I never looked into it.

Damn it norm, coming in here, stealing my thunder.October 17, 2013 at 11:56 #406
awesome. is there a limit on the size a single file in CDN or the amount you can upload to CDN? images = big. big * many = possibly required to payOctober 17, 2013 at 11:59 #409
If you upload a 5Mb image, it will host a 5Mb image, it’s sweet and it’s free – we can always move to NetDNA again (MaxCDN in particular) if we want/need to but for now this one works great and is free 😀October 17, 2013 at 14:06 #428
lovely. Can you apply tags to images?
This way it could be tagged as Donegal, trad and you could make albums for the donegal trip with all images with the donegal tag along with a trad album
Means the action of updating albums/galleries is automatedOctober 17, 2013 at 14:13 #430
We can sort out distinct galleries ayeOctober 17, 2013 at 14:14 #432
where photos are automatically added if they have a tag associated with the gallery?October 17, 2013 at 15:18 #436
Just goto media manager, add new – create gallery – BOOM – tagged that ish.
