Recently, I get the photo album when I first come to the site, before log-in.

Hi Phil

I wanted people coming into our site via the home page to have different views each time soooooooooooo I had Philip program diff forum and photo views that would change each hour based on a percentage I assigned.

Example: Photos I think had 40% allocation....so 40% of the time during log in to the home page photos will appear and beyond that the two lines of photos that appear are at random ....so the photos are diff most of the time.

Point was to not have a static view on the site all the time during log in and have this tide us over until we get the all new site design done.

Nowww....since the page view changes each hours it looks to me as if this also changes the view for those already logged in and on any page at the time.

If it is really annoying I can have Philip check it out, but I really like him to spend time on the new web page and fixing critical things like when we got hacked back in October.

Soooooooo...let me know your views and we go from there and thanks for your post since the only way we can help or fix things is when people tell us


Mike

I like it :thumbsup: It really shows that the site is alive. Much better than having the same front page picture or announcements all the time.

Not that big of a deal Mike, just wondering if I screwed up something on this end.
