How do you get the Google URL? I can find my place on Google Earth, but I’m not sure how to get the URL.

Edit: Nevermind, I found the google site for it.

Actually the admin of CG portfolio explains it somewhere here…that is how i figured it too…do a small search in here…u need those instructions to find us…i think.

Yep, thanks Dimitris. I got a link working :slight_smile:

Just a few opinions on my part:

  • Perhaps the portfolio summary could be alot clearer. Maybe the layout could be in a grid-like fashion or maybe the user can expand and minimize sections. At the moment there just seems to be alot of information just thrown down in a linear fasion.

  • It would be nice to be able to view people who have added you to their favourites list. Also, not have the option to add yourself to your favourites list

  • Maybe another option for the user’s starting page, so that they can customize it a little. It would be great to have gallery thumbnails along with some about information as a start page.


#71

I left the ability to add yourself to your favorites list, because i often do it - it lets you see what other people see when you post.

Personalised startpages have been concidered, and may eventuate.


#72

This is awesome, great work guys, worth much more than the cost of membership.


#73

Just something I noticed then…

When I added a personal website link into my portfolio personal details, it comes up under my username on the forum but has ‘forums.cgsociety.org/’ before the web address, resulting in a bad link.

Is it possible to keep the website link on the forum seperate to the website link on the portfolio? I would prefer to link my portolfio through the forum and then my personal site through the portfolio.


#74

I’ve disabled the 3 character limit, it seems to work ok in the browesers i am able to check it in, if you’ve changed from a 3 character username let me know and i’ll switch it back;


#75

Make sure you put http:// in front of web addresses.

Once we have launched your profile on cgtalk should link straight into your portfolio account


#76

Just checked out the google earth thing. Tres neat. I was a tad disappointed by the lack of Angeleno turnout, but I’m sure that’ll pick up.


#77

Has this been address anywhere? Because Google Earth is not working for me anymore.


#78

yeah, I posted in another thread somewhere the new google earth page is located at http://portfolio.cgsociety.org/google_earth.kml

The old page was dynamic, which was fine whilst we were testing, however, it could have become quite a heavy load on the server with a huge population; The new page will be generated at regular intervals so it may take some time for your entry to show up, but it won’t stress our servers :slight_smile:

This link should actually open automatically in google earth, but don’t quote me on that :slight_smile:

Thank you for this… :thumbsup:

Nice job guys. Much appreciated. A lot of nice ideas in this package. Renewing isn’t such a big question anymore. :thumbsup:
