HAR Server Changes: Good Things Come in Threes

November 25, 2009 ·

During the past month the HAR website has made a number of necessary technical changes both in how the site serves up information and in new features.

1). HAR has changed hosting servers and upgraded to a new and improved operating system. Some visitors to the site will notice a significant change in speed. Pages will load faster and it will be easier to move from page to page. This has been especially noticable with those visitors that use Apple computers.

2). The 'New on the Site' page, sometimes called 'News,' has been re-configured and slightly re-formatted. It functions the same as before and all of the old posts have been transferred over to appear seamless with the old/new page. Those of you sitting in the front seats and paying attention will remember from recent news updates why this change had to be made. The 'News' page will now be seen and accessible to many more people than it was before.

3). 'My Gallery' is a new feature added to the HAR site during the changes of the last month. 'My Gallery' is a personal, visitor generated, collection of images placed in a custom page titled 'My Gallery.' To use this feature all that is required is for the visitor to sign-up using an e-mail address. During periods of browsing the collection and when landing on an individual object page, select the 'Add to My Gallery' link adjacent to the image. This link will automatically add the image to your 'My Gallery.' Add and remove images as often as you like. A link to 'My Gallery' is located in the left hand navigation menu on most HAR pages. The HAR Team is still field testing this new feature and would be greatful for any comments or suggestions for improvement.
