Defective Photo Albums

Postby Doug Bailey » Fri Sep 13, 2019 7:09 pm

There are 4157 locomotives in our database which have "Photo Albums". These albums contain additional pictures of the locomotive. Quite by accident I discovered that there were 25 Photo Albums that each had one, single defective entry. When you looked at the album for these locomotives you'd see one entry that had a "missing image" icon and a blank for the photographer's name.

Curiosity got the better of me, and I traced the problem back to a bug in the Administrative Interface that runs this site. The bug allowed you to save an album entry without designating a photo, or the photographer's name. The bug is fixed, and the database editted to remove the defective entries.

Regards,
Doug
