I know I’ve been inactive on the site. I’ve been doing my best to keep up on Twitter, though, so be sure to visit that page even if you aren’t a follower. I just wanted to update you guys on a recent site change. For right now, and hopefully it is just extremely temporary, I have taken the image gallery offline. I received a warning from my host that the database it runs on has continuously exceeded the alloted queries. I haven’t been able to curb the number, yet, and I’ve tried a few things. I’m at a loss. If anyone has any similar database or Coppermine issues, please feel free to share! (E-mail, comment, Twitter, etc.)
I’m going to continue to do research. If the gallery is just simply too busy for no malicious reason or scripting error, then I will have to find a way to slow down the traffic. This will probably mean locking it to registered users only. I hate doing that, but it may be the only option to keep this site up. If at all possible, I’m thinking of trying to leave certain albums unlocked — maybe the newest ones or something. Any suggestions are welcome.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
