Trip Report Archive

Post by Martell » February 9th, 2010, 4:18 pm

I put up a really basic archive of the old trip reports as well as off-trail trip reports, from when we used the old forum software.

http://www.portlandhikers.org/archive/

The images don't yet work if they were hosted at portlandhikers.com, but external ones do. All the text should be there at least. Update: Most images should now be working.

Someday it will hopefully be searchable and sortable.

Some images don't work because they had to be deleted from flickr so I wouldn't have to pay to post new ones!

Thank you, Don, for doing this!!! :D

Your efforts are appreciated, thanks for bringing this stuff back from the dead - the page of links almost reads like a trail guide... There's a lot of useful information in those old trip reports.

Thanks, Dan -- looks great! Glad I kept all those linked images piling up in the same folder on my Splintercat domain, too!

That's awesome Dan, thanks for doing that! Lots of great info there. Any chance the portlandhikers.com hosted photos will eventually link up?

There are a couple reasons the portlandhikers.com images aren't up.

One is the way they are linked to by the old forum software. Instead of directly linking to the images, it linked to a script that would know which image to display. This is just a matter of me taking the time to fix the links.

The other is a limitation imposed by our web host. They are a shared host and instead of limiting your disk space or transfer, they limit the # of files you can have. Because of this, I don't want to upload all the old images to our web host. I'm thinking we could put them on an Amazon S3 store and the cost would be minimal (like a couple bucks a month), as I don't see the archive generating a bunch of traffic.

I got bored and now most of the images are up on an S3 store. The images in the trip reports have been rerouted and should automatically load from S3 now.

I say most, because there are several different formats that the images are linked in and some of them don't work. The images are online, but I still need to clean up the rest of the links.

!!?! Then could you write us some code that will enable searches within individual Forums? Like, so we can list all our Trip Reports? (Heh, heh.)

You can already do that, using the Search button on the top.

Unless you are talking about from the archive?

Yeah. No worries. I didn't post any Trip Reports until after the switch-over, so I'm good.
