Hello everyone.

Best Web Hosting

Well, it's the first day of Spring in our corner of the world and it's been quite hectic behind the scenes at  as we finish setting up the new website template & modules. We'll be adjusting & tweaking things for the next few weeks at least whilst we put the finishing touches to  our website "Spring Clean" & conduct the final testing on the new layout but (hopefully) this shouldn't cause any / too much disruption to our users. We'll also be adding more social network integrations to make it easier & faster for new members to register /sign up.

New Website Photo Gallery Component

We had a minor setback last week with our image gallery which had to be rebuilt following its update to the new JoomGallery MVC version (..... so if you are searching for a particular image file / photograph please be aware that the file names / links may have changed following the rebuild....) which meant that we also lost all associated data & statistics too (hits, votes etc) for all our highly popular images however it's a small price to pay for the great new features & improved performance offered by the new JoomGallery. BTW, I've found a fix for a problem which affects some users whereby images don't display, so if you have the same problem (it doesn't affect all installations, so it may be due to ie: server or some other environmental factor) you can try that solution - a copy of it is available in our Joomla related Forum. If you are looking for a gallery component for Joomla then the new JoomGallery is well worth trying out and it's also completely OpenSource & FREE so perhaps consider giving it a try (you can download it via our BIS Downloads directory).

BIS Website - New Photo Gallery Images

I've also added a few more (brand-new) images to the BIS Gallery, including the image(s) used in this article, & also the party celebration image used in an earlier blog article about our achievement of reaching a PageRank score of Five. I did the party /celebration type images for the blog article after spending way too too long trying to find a similar image online - free or commercial - without much luck and so I thought it might be useful to some of our members too.  All images within our BIS Gallery may be downloaded for FREE by our registered members & may be used by individuals or businesses for non-commercial purposes ( you can use them on your website, in articles etc - but you cannot ie: Print them onto items or sell them....) and provided that we are credited by you in some way for the use of the image(s) - you can read more about the licensing details in our legal document "BIS Gallery Policy - Terms & Conditions"- but it's a great way to save some money and using images in your articles can really help to make your site look interesting.

One more thing - before we start receiving emails from Animal Welfare types concerning the (morbidly obese, overweight, mildly plump....) weight of one of the cats pictured in the Gallery ("Lucie") I think I should mention that Lucie cannot move around as much as most cats, as she only has 3 legs (I found her on a busy highway with horrific injuries, & the vet was unable to save her leg. We think that she may have been tortured & then thrown from a vehicle...) so she doesn't like to venture out much (....OK, she's a total Garfield & a couch potato, but we love her). But don't feel sorry for her, she can move like lightning when she wants to (ie: dinnertime...) and her & Sid (the Ginger Kitten/Cat) are the absolute best of friends.


Well, that's all for now. Take care,
