Troubleshooting Success!

I have been going crazy since I put up this site because some of the more advanced features have not been behaving themselves. The good news was that most of the features were on the admin side, so users would not know something was awry. Nonetheless, it was frustration to have things not work at the launch of a site. Those are the kins of problems that just get worse.


O.T. Reilly's Guide Book

Speaking of projects, a few years ago I met O.T. Reilly's family and they asked me to re-publish his famous guide book. I had the privilege of not only seeing but scanning his original hand-written manuscript and his battlefield guide log books.

Some progress today

I think I have this site running rather well on the new host that I tried. There were a few glitches, one that I have fixed and one that persists, but I am going to try to work it out on this host. I really want to get back to my book about Antietam images, but I need to get this site settled first. I tried the Media Gallery module yesterday and it was very buggy, so it appears it still make take me a few days to figure out the best way to have image galleries. That is such an important component. But the Ajax menus are broken and that is task one.


Virtual Antietam Panoramas

Well, the upgrade is going well. It will still be a few weeks before I get the URL switched over, so between now and then I will just be working away. The technical difficulty I am hitting now is getting the panoramas into a format that will play well on current browsers and within Drupal. I am probably going to be using Flash for Drupal and HTML5 for mobile apps. It is amazing how far HTML has come. It was an old, sorry language there for a while, but now it seems to be where the action is.


Virtual Antietam 2.0

I am migrating Virtual Antietam over to Drupal 7. This is exciting for me because I have a lot of interesting ideas for projects that I hope to have released before the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam on September 17, 2012, and Drupal 7 can handle all of them. Well, I'd better stop yackin' and get codin'. Thanks.
