Losing sort order

Previous Entry Losing sort order Mar. 30th, 2005 @ 10:17 pm Next Entry
I have a gallery with over 100 pics in it. When I go to the Text & Security page and try to switch from 50 pics per page to 100 per page, without changing anything else on the page, it screws up my previously saved sort order.

It appears to just be switching the position of picture 1 with 51, 2 with 52, etc. up to 50 with 100, and repeating the process gets everything back in order, as far as I can tell. This only happens when I use the Switch button from the 50-picture (default) page, not when I manually add pagesize=100 to the URL. I haven't tried switching to one of the other options, but I'd guess something extra is happening with that submit that's moving things around.

Sorry for putting this question here - it has nothing whatsover to do with pangsgolem's thread - but I cannot figure out how to post a question to this community otherwise. I am a total NON-geek, and have to be told/shown once how to do something, after which I'm OK.
The other non-related question - the one I wanted to post in the first place but couldn't figure out how - is 'How do I purchase more space, I've run out of room, and how is it possible other folks have hundreds and hundreds of pictures posted and do not appear to have run out of diskspace yet?' Thanks, and sorry again for interrupting...

First, to post to this community, you have to join it. Not just add it as a friend, but join it. Once you've joined, you can post to it by changing the "post to" drop down box to the community name on the update page. Your update page normally says: "post to: kelathefinn" but you can change it to the community name. Make sense?

Now for the answer to your original question: you can go here to purchase additional space. However, as most people have pointed out, the pricing system is kind of outrageous and is hardly worth it.

Thank you, Dave, that is very helpful. I'm kind of 'learning as I go' here, and it was very kind of you to take the time to help a neophyte. As for the additional space, they have me somewhat over a barrel - I'm in China, there is a demand from friends and family for photos, and in the end it is cheaper and easier for me to just pay the outrageous rental fee than to try to make hard copies and post them via snail mail halfway around the world (to Finland, Tanzania, Brasil, the UK and the USA), or even to take the time to send separate emails. Sending more than two photos to multiple addresses crashes the email system I have access to here. Hopefully the price for the extra space will come down if there is enough demand. Thanks again.
