Sorry for raising this in CN but does anyone else find that they cannot see the monthly "gallery thumbnails" in ASOD after May? I get the dreaded red X against the daily gallery images (they will all open up correctly if I double click) yet I can see all daily images before June? Am I being dumb here?

Thanks

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the heads-up about that. I need to investigate what's going on, but it looks like something is amiss with the thumbnail fields for recent posts. Once I figure it out, I'll discuss with Rich Handy.

While we're on the topic, it sounds like you find the thumbnail gallery useful...does anyone else use that feature of the site?

thanks Jeremy. To add a bit - I sometimes travel so can't catch the site for a few weeks. I find the thumbs a really easy way to catch up on what has been posted.

The thumbnail gallery is a fun way to peruse past entries and search for same. It would be nice if the entire month could be placed onto a single page, however, instead of splitting it into three or four pages.

(Also let Rich know we miss seeing him around here...)

Jeremy,

Yes, it is helpful. I agree with Eric that it would be nice if the month was on one page. Great asset though.

Ah I like the way you guys think!

Months should now display in their entirety on one page.

Now to figure out the deal with the recent thumbnails.

The galleries at Astronomy Sketch of the Day should now be fully populated with thumbnails. Take a tour when you get a chance and let us know if anything seems out of place. (The posts that feature YouTube content still need some thumbnail help)
