I'm Bill. I live aboard my Westsail 32 named Galena. Currently moored at Patuxent River Naval Air Station, Maryland, USA.

Doing a slight refit in preparation for my 5th winter cruise to the Bahamas (Exumas) and, as always, possibly beyond.

Hi right back at you, FF.

I've just started working my way through this site.

I have a domain for my main site (http://www.sv-galena.com) and I use LiveJournal for my main blog (http://sv-galena.livejournal.com) so this site is just a diversion for now. I want to give it a chance and see how it works out.

I uploaded a bunch of pictures from my blog. Unlike LJ, the only way I found to order the pictures is to number the file names. And so far I've found no way to add captions/descriptions to the photos other than in the file name. You worked with this at all?

I'll give this site just a little more of my time before I write it off. So far it's not bad, but I'm not really impressed with the 'wiki' nature of the site.

Fair Winds (or Clean Fuel)

Bill

s/v Galena

Hi Bill

This software is specialist discussion board and Wiki software. The gallery and blogging side is a very simple "addition" to the main software and as such is not the main purpose. The forum software is probably the best in the business and the Wiki (Cruising Wiki) is the standard (award winning) software by MediaWiki - as used by Wikipedia.

For blogging (specially designed for boating), there is no better than www.sailblogs.com with interactive route mapping and photo albums, etc.

Cruiserlog is specifically a discussion forum and Cruising and Sailing Wiki.

It is "horses for courses".
