Maybe somebody that has access to server and directories can do that.
Once upon a time, FiberglassRV.com was
an entity standing alone, a "Sole Proprietorship" owned and operated by one individual. Under the old Invision PowerBoard software, the task of managing the look and operation of the Home Page was
done as Pam and Byron suggest. Manually. Those days are gone.
Today, FiberglassRV.com is but one Division of the Multiple Sites owned and operated by SocialKnowledge, LLC. (a Limited Liability Corporation)
Our operating system was changed to the standardized vBulliten software running all of the other sites in this family of sites.
Apparently, the "Look and Feel" of the site, a.k.a. the "Skin", was overlayed onto the standard appearance. (CasitaForum uses the standard appearance of Invision PowerBoard software.) Certain custom created features
of the home page (Photograph, List of Manufacturers with embedded links) had to be imported to vBulliten, with more than a bit of alignment challenges.
We were told that the goal was to Automate
a rotating que of photographs on the home page. As the corporation employs the same or fewer Volunteer (by invitation only)
Moderators and Administrators, who cram this labor into our own very full schedules, automation will help us meet our customers' needs.
The source of the que is the recently created photo gallery. The old Invision PowerBoard gallery was incompatible with the vBulliten operating system. All of the Old images had to be reassigned, and added to new images in our Trailer Registries to make up the new Gallery.
Linking that standardized automated que to the existing custom Home Page Photo display is the software upgrade that Donna D. is speaking of.
Apparently there are enough bugs in it to have to call in the exterminators.
