Hi devs/admin - thanks for the great site, I especially like the fullscreen map with the ability to follow someone's trip around stop-by-stop.
One request/query - on the map page, is it possible/it'd be great to launch the Cooliris viewer from the popup box for a trip stop, e.g. next to/near the photo thumbs?
It's just that the single photo window is kinda clunky (no navigation for multiple images) and shows reduced-sized images - i.e. not as pretty as Cooliris!
Many thanks again and keep up the great work.
And if anyone else wants to the cooliris working on the map, please chime in so I know For reference, it's the same as what you can see when you click the Play Slideshow link on the main Photography page.
Hi Peter - thanks for the prompt reply. Would something that streams albums from a third party website like Picasa, flickr etc be less demanding and easier to implement? See for e.g. the viewer used here
I really like the all-in-one page functionality....and the screen real estate on travellerspoint is so much better
Look forward to hearing anything further after you have a think.
Pulling in photos from somewhere else is actually harder to implement. But what are you particularly after? A more attractive display of the photos or photos from somewhere else?
Another approach would be to just make our own photo popup look more like the Cooliris / Jauntlet ones. That "lightbox" effect is itself not too hard to recreate.
Ah ok re pulling photos, was just an idea if easiest option - please excuse my lack of tech knowledge on these things!
I'm after just a slightly more functional and attractive popup display - i.e. simple fwd/back nav buttons and higher res/larger size photo display.
I'd appreciate anything you can implement along those lines.
Ok, got it. I don't think there would be any objections to creating a nicer photo popup I'll see if there's some improvements we can make there, particularly the ability to navigate back/forward makes sense.
Great, look forward to it Peter
