I completed a significant upgrade to the Virtual History Tour of Marple and District software yesterday and this morning I've implemented the next major step forward by enabling user registration.
At this stage, registering as a user will allow you to make comments on images in the galleries and to compile your own album of favourites. There are other options that I can make available in the longer term if this first step is successful.
The registration process is automated and you can activate it yourself at the moment. You must use a valid email address to register otherwise you will not receive the activation link.Please register using your proper name i.e. Mark Whittaker, not a nickname.
You will be able post comments immediately you have registered but they will not appear to others until they have been approved. Please ensure that comments are relevant to the image and informative to other users. Please be patient waiting for your comments to be approved/rejected.
If you have any questions, suggestions, or if you experience any difficulties then please post them in this topic.
I hope this will be an advance that can be enjoyed by many but of course it potentially opens up opportunities for the site to be abused too. If the problems prove to outweigh the benefits then I will return it to how it was, so those of you who enjoy the Tour please make the most of this new opportunity to add interest to the site.
