Duplicate entries.

Is anybody else finding that on the main iSpot page the Latest Observations are duplicated and some there are even more copies.?
This only started happening this morning.

Yeah, same here - iSpot had a bit of down time due to maintenance earlier today, I'm guessing the two might be related.

Fitting everything on the screen

When I click on an observation from the picture on the front page the obsvervation will not fit on the page and is displayed below the right sidebar. This happens when using IE6 and screen resolution of 1024 x 768. This has always happened but I have just found this forum.

'More' button not working properly?

I'm on the Home page looking at Latest Observations. I press the More button and instead of showing the gallery of observations as usual, I'm getting the enlarged picture of the first observation -- currently a yellow horned poppy.

Pressing the 'more' button

I am getting the same, an enlarged picture of the latest entry.
The newly added aid that was there when the more button was pressed , of group or/and individual searches was really useful can we have that back?

Now called the Browse Observations page

We felt that the page that used to be linked to from the more link of the latest observations on the home page was inappropriately named being as it was actually showing a list of all observations and not just the latest. Consequently the link to this page has now been moved to the 'Browse' menu in the right hand column of the site and is called Observations. We've also added more functionality to it allowing users to filter all the observations to a more specific subset.

We hope you find this page useful.

That's a great addition.

The only problem is that if you add a search name or date it does not recognise you are presented with a page of computer scripts.

I used it last night , other than that it seems to works fine and is a great help.
Thanks

Two comments: When I go into

Two comments:

When I go into a group I can see the 12 most recent entries. What I can not see are more than this. There used to be a button at the end that allowed you to see more pages of photos to check, this seems to have been removed. Currently the only way I can find to see entries not on the main page seems to be to scroll back through the gallery and go into an observation that way - very time consuming. Can we have the "more photos" button back please.

Photos: When I click on a photo, I get a larger image bit I do not see the full photo as displayed in the original entry, the large photoappears to be cropped slightly, which can be anoying if the bit one really needs to see is at the margin of the picture. Could we see the full picture please when the larger image appears.

Thanks.

If preview my observation before posting it and then try to post it, the longitude field of the location clears and I have to set the location again to be able to post.

Sam,
The observation was clearly not of a living organism and so we have blocked it. Hope you understand. :-)

deleting unread posts

I can no longer delete unread posts from my unread list. When I click on the button that used to delete them, it takes me to the "changes" page. It's not a major problem, but I like to keep things nest and tidy but don't want to look at all the postings just to remove them. any suggestions?
