IxDA.org - photo and password reset fixes are live
Great news. We've resolved the picture-upload problem on ixda.org that was driving many of you (and me) a little nuts! At the same time, we've solved the password reset problem that was serving up random errors.
We were able to do this thanks to a referral from Michael Wolfe in Cape Town, who connected us with Roger Sanner, a Drupal developer who is also part of the Cape Town local group. Via a Skype session, Matt and Roger managed to make 'instant happiness' for me this morning. Yay for the power of local group volunteers!
What I can't do is go back and fix broken links, so you may have some work to do within your groups to have folks re-upload photos that have gone missing.
Check it out - and hopefully these fixes make all our lives a little easier working with the site!
