What's your view on how the forums are laid out? Are there too many, too few, or are we missing some?

Let me know.

I was thinking how would a general landscaping and lawncare forum be? Where you could just chat about the days dealings? Or something like that.

Something like, Back at the shop. Or shop talk at the end of the day.

I really like everything. Perhaps have like a photo area. I love looking at photos of work, equipment, the shop, etc.

I love the new direction though

Would you put the photos section in the
Lawn Care and Landscaping Discussions
or the
Business & Life section?

well you could make a nice php photo album with users that can upload their own images based on the gopher forums.

Oh that sounds interesting. Do you have an example of that we can see working?

Well...you could add a 'Gallery' php script sort of like this

This is quick and dirty but I could make it fit and customize it to look like it is a part of the site.

With a program like this you can have users register and share their photos with the gopher community. And not just anyone can register either...you would need to approve all applicants...to avoid spammers all and all.

Yea that is cool!

Do you have the php code for the photo album, that could be downloaded and played with?

Ya...make sure to download the Developer Build, that way you can alter it.
