For some time we have been saying we will allow a photo gallery. But this has been put off by indecision on which of the many galleries to use.

I have now decided which one I think is best for us, and here is an example:

http://www.netdragons.info/vq1/gallery/

My reasoning is,

1) It is under active development.
2) I know people using it.
3) it is a mambo component and hence fits in with the site more simply.
4) Its free

I will wait a few days for contary opinion to surface and then assuming the consensus is in favour go ahead and install it.

Ah, a 'mambo component' I'm all for it. Do we need those little adhesive corners or is the backing self adhesive?

You can't beat a nail-gun for most jobs. (According to the previous owners of our house. )

selotape...the type that turns a horrible colour, peels off at the edges then rips off the paper behind. You can't beat good old tack!

Previous occupiers used grease and dirt as an adhesive - we "cleaned" by removing the kitchen and bathroom floors, walls and ceilings. It's quite impressive to stand in your 'kitchen' and see the rafters two stories above.

A donation would be fitting with site policy. Which reminds me, we have not donated for phpbb or mambo yet Mambo I have a small excuse for, as I do contribute to the mambo community. Not much excuse on phpbb though.

I think that when we have the money, $50 each would be appropriate as these are the core of the site?

What do you think?

Would seem a wise way to spend the money.
