Hi Dylan,

Yes, adding the old pictures to the new gallery is a major software task.

But it's not necessary to do that to make them appear in the old posts. They are linked in those old posts using the old URL, so provided the old /gallery/ folder is copied to the new server, all the pictures in the old posts which are currently missing would re-appear.

If (it may be a big if) the old backups are still available, copying the old /gallery/ folder to the server should not require more than a few clicks.

Alternatively, it's possible the old /gallery/ folder is still in place on your Dad's old server on Data 1 (now GWOCI). In which case Verticalscope should be able to set up a simple redirect to it for the image links.

regards,

Martin.

That would be great! But I'm amazed that you still have FTP access to the server after the takeover?

regards,

Martin.

that was part of the deal before the changeover.. there had to be an element of trust involved and they trusted my Dad with FTP access and with the general running of the site, and he trusts me to help him out.
the gallery folder thing will probably take many hours to complete,, its at 2% now...

That's great, well done Dylan. Expect a round of applause when you get all the pictures back in the old posts.

okay lads the folder with all the old gallery pictures is now copied back to its proper location, so old posts with links to gallery pictures should now be working again..

I can confirm that it worked. Some of my old bookmarked threads are showing the pictures again. Good work Dylan and Martin.

excellent - and 'spot on', as it were -- really no need to fuly revive the functionality of the old gallery - addressing the existing image to post relationships has definitely addressed my conserns.

It's nice to see Google image searches again returning to good clean posts here in your forum.

Great work on that!
