Topic tags/keywords: question

When I hit the “Zoom Picture” I get a 1/3rd page picture and no ability to move to the next picture.

It seems the entire site is under some stress.

They just could not leave well enough alone.

I, too, am no longer able to use the “zoom picture” function as before. I get the first picture in the sequence to zoom, but am unable access any of the others. What happened?

Definitely ZOOM is still not working. Looking at the code, it’s throwing a Javascript error when ZOOM PICTURES is clicked. Please fix!

MsDebbie, I use Chrome, as well, and am having the same issue as everyone else with the zoom function on project posts.

Same here – Zoom in Chrome just opens the graphic file in a window with no controls.

Same here. The zoom just ain’t workin’. And my backspace key requires SIX hits to get anything to happen. Every time I hit the backspace key another ad appears! REALLY strange.

NOTE: I don’t think the problems are on my end as my puter works fine on other sites (but this site is my favorite!)

Like Andy, my computers/iPad work fine on other sites but this is my favorite. We are entering the second week of problems like this, no Top 15 projects, overly expanded layouts for topics and sporadic inabilities to post comments. Just look at the “daily top 3” page to confirm that there has not been one for seven days now. I certainly hope management has not abandoned this site, but the failures to correct these problems makes one doubt a dedicated commitment from management. I’ll continue to check, but I’ll wait to attempt any posts or comments until things are fixed.
