Images of old Ocean Grove
June 15, 2014 2 Comments
OK – my holidays end tonight so the output will slow down but I just wanted to get this last bit working. Then I will have a formula to follow for the updates to the Ocean Grove land titles. I’m concerned that things are different because it’s my blog site, so I need others to give this a try and let me know if it works for them! Please? :-)
After a lot of experimenting I have decided to start adding old photos of places in old Ocean Grove. The simplest option for my database is adding a URL / link to the images which I have added to this blog site. Unfortunately, as most of you probably know, PDF files now perform quite different in different browsers, and also, as the blog owner I may be able to access more than the “ordinary” people out there – that’s why I need your help.
I’ve updated the Detailed report for Section B with some more place names as well as links for images.
What I’ve found for my setup – the links don’t work in MS Internet Explorer, Firefox or Google Chrome if I try to open the PDF file within the browser. If I save the PDF file to my hard drive or download it, then the links work fine. Obviously it also works if I copy and paste the image link into my browser.
Once you have the PDF file for Section B, scroll through to these Lot numbers – B155, B156, B160, B169 and B210 – all of these have images added to them.
My fingers are crossed that this works for most people – it’s certainly the easiest for my database setup.
OH – and if you have old photos of any places in the old Ocean Grove land titles – they would be most welcome to add to this database for others to enjoy.
