Floodgap Roadgap updates (finally)
« on: July 12, 2020, 12:53:18 AM »

I finally did a site cleanup for Floodgap Roadgap and refreshed many of the exhibits to the Grouperview grouped photo system I originally set up for the Summer of 6. As part of this I got rid of a lot of link rot and rewrote some blurbs, and it works a bit better on more devices. So there's that.

However, there is some new content, including some of the first stuff from my HD "flying camera" setup. This includes CA 266 (which also includes NV 264 and NV 266), and an expanded three-part Route 110 including the entirety of the Arroyo Seco Pkwy and Harbor Fwy with lots of archival shots. I also expanded old CA 209 with a number of additional images I had not previously uploaded. (And don't forget: the Summer of US 6 is now complete up to the Iowa state line.)

The next step is to start doing the conversion to Grouperview for the big multiparts (US 395, US 399, US 95) using the footage I've already got, and then to finish the Australia-New Zealand section (with various archival shots from NSW and TAS, TAS NH 1 in its entirety, a lot of pictures I took in the ACT, and NZ 1 from Auckland to Cape Reinga).

Cool. I'm about to release a big update to my pages (like, as soon as I get some redone CSS code from Steve S.). So, if any of the links to your pages have changed, please let me know and I'll make sure they get updated before I do the upload. If you just changed content and not URLs, we're fine. So you know, I'm making a concerted effort not to break any links you might have into my pages.

I went through and caught what you had on your front page -- let me know as you complete the new exhibits and I'll get them linked in. Together, we shall fight link rot.

I try very hard not to change links because I despise rot (I'll put up a redirect if I must move something around). I think everything is current for what links you but I will watch for your one-page-per-route update :)

Note that when I go to the one-page per route, I'm keeping all the old 8-routes per page files there, but replacing the innards with a Javascript route that changes 001-008.html#005 to ROUTE005.html , so nothing should break. I'll know when I do the first upload and some testing. (same thing with the county sign routes).

Four more parts of US 6 are up (all the way to Illinois), plus a CA 136 exhibit.

Still working on the Australian and New Zealand section.
