Does anyone see pics here?

None of the species links work for me and never have.

Some of the other ones have in the past but now just about the whole thing is broke.

database works for me (surprise.... lots of times it's not working).  The :"search" page should allow you to search by Freshwater Bass, but that function doesn't seem to be working.  Instead get back to the top of the page and click on "browse by tags".  On the tags page, go to the second half (it's in alphabetical order" and click on Largemouth Bass.  You should retrieve 18 flies.

It seems a lot of problems with the database arose when the forum switched to the new format a while back.

the switch was a few years ago. the bugs should be worked out by now.

 

seems like its more about lazy neglect than anything else

 

the forum needs an IT person with coding knowledge to bring this place up to date

Apparently it's still broke. Can't search, can't browse by species or material. I haven't tried to upload but nothing has been added in quite awhile.I don't know if anybody is working on it. Too bad. I guess you can still browse by tags or members.

It sure would be nice if Admin would respond and explain what the problem is.

If it's IT help and $$$ I'm sure a few folks would kick in and help with that.

Mike... it was "broke" back in April.  It's fine now.  Actually given the number of problems I have had that were generated by Windows, I am not at all sure the occasional lockups are the fault of the database.

Don't know about adding patterns, but I can search by tags and other ways, and bookmark patterns, etc. as always
