I have checked in a couple of times and it seems there is little happening here as the updates to the software are going on. Is there someting I can help out on Matt, or shall we wait for you to finish the upgrade?

Helping Out

Hi, Cecil! It's great of you to ask. I've been so busy with school lately (next week is our last week, and it's CRUNCH TIME) to do hardly anything with the site. You might want to try installing the image-cvs mod from drupal.org. I know it's still in beta, but perhaps it will work well enough for now (and perhaps it'll work perfectly). We also need img_assist (there is an official mod for 2.7 now) in order to get the pictures back up.

graphics module

Yes I am curious if the image module will work. It would enable me to continue to fill the graphics database. It would allow us to fill the logo thread with more logo idea's.

Uploading Images

Is that the most efficient way of uploading stuff, though? I'd hate to have images in multiple places. We're already at 500MB of used space and only have 500MB left. It seems like a lot, but it's not.

Good Point

Yes, we should be conservative with images. Perhaps, Mark, you might set up a flickr account for the time being? That way, we could all view the images and select which ones we want to use?

Image modules now online

I have installed the image module and the image assist module, so go ahead and start trying them out. For the moment the permissions are only set for administrator, so these may need to be expanded as needed as we go.

You may also want to look at the settings for the image module as I changed the thumbnail and other image sizes to ones that we most likely will use, feel free to adjust them if there is a pressing reason BEFORE we upload a bunch of stuff.

Finally you may need to adjust the settings for Img_assist as I left them all at their defaults. I will keep my fingers crossed and hope this works.

img_assist errors.

It seems that 4.7 stores it's Image libraries in a different default location than the previous version. I will see if I can do anything about this. If it is not fixed this evening I would welcome any help or comments.

Space savings on backup.

Since I have moved all the image file from the /neo_backup/files area to the /neo site I am going to remove the redundant files from the /neo/backup/files/images and /pictures directories to save all of that space.

Sorry Matt

I trashed the /neo/includes/image.inc earlier and replaced it with the one from the backup. As this was a older version I pulled a fresh one from 4.7.0-re4 and placed it back into the /includes area, this killed the site for about 5 minutes. All is well now.
