The Fossils Gallery just got a LOT bigger. A new feature allows us to mirror all attachments from a forum into the Gallery, and a link back to the thread where it came from is provided (and vice-versa). I will reconfigure the Gallery categories so we can match up the content a bit better, and so you'll see more of such cross-posting over time.

Some navigation updates:
  • brought back the "Home" navigation tab
  • added prominent links to the Homepage to the major forum categories for easy access
  • Removed "latest / what's new" navigation tab (the "Latest Activity" link is now a sub-item under Home)
  • Removed the "members" navigation tab (it's now accessible as a sub-item under Forums)
  • revisited Widget placements

Due (primarily) to the serious "log4j" global security issue (see this report for info), our Search feature is now limited to members who are also Supporters. This is something I've been weighing and have experimented with in the past, but this latest exploit compels action.

Supporters enjoy ad-free browsing across TONMO, and other perks, most notably (now), the ability to search our 20-year history of content directly from our forums. You can upgrade your account here.

This feature has been restored as we have secured our server (and there are extended impacts to tamping Search for registered members that I did not see at first)....

That said, I still encourage your support through our Supporters program! :heee:

Hello TONMOers -- this Friday, 2/25, we will experience a few hours of downtime as we make some major changes to our backend systems. Simply positioning ourselves for the next 20+ years :smile: -- thank you in advance for your patience. :boat:

We are back up! Please let me know any strangeness; will be tending to that over the weekend.

You'll notice some shifts in our site navigation, as shown here in Desktop mode:
