10 Links to Other Galleries
Many thanks to the Marshall family in Duffy for alerting me to the fact that the bushfire galleries were non-operational. It is after all, mere days from the 10th anniversary of the bushfires that impacted Canberra so greatly.
The galleries have been restored from backups, and do feel free to let me know if you have anything further that you believe should be added to the site.
For those of you interested, after more than 7 years the court hearings for the victims of the Canberra Bushfires have finally commenced. For more information, see this ABC News report, and this other ABC News report.
Welcome to the redesigned website. It has been quite a while coming, but the new design makes the regular pages more consistent, and due to a new server, a proper photo gallery has been implemented.
Please contact me if there are any broken links.
Welcome to the new design website! I am continually updating and uploading new images, movie clips and stories, so please check back every now and then to see whats new!
I have uploaded most of the new images that I have prepared, and am working away on the new design for the website. When completed, the new look canberrafires.xsnet.org will have separate News, Galleries, Acknowledgements, Movies, and Links pages, as well as an addition - a Reports and Stories section, where you can tell your story of events from wherever you are, so people can have a better idea of what happened wherever you may have been. Slowly but surely, it's coming together and the new website should be online in the next day or two, along with even more photos!
Still working on over a hundred new photos (amongst other things!) Sorry for the delay!
I am currently working on an update to the site, and considering a re-vamp of the main pages, to separate the news, photo galleries, acknowledgments and links to other websites. Feedback would be appreciated if you have any ideas, just send through some feedback.
People may be experiencing difficulty viewing parts of the website. This is due to me re-designing certain parts of the site to make it easier and faster to update. The solution is simply to press CTRL-F5 on any page you are having trouble with, or empty your Temporary Internet Files.
Thanks to all the people who have sent in Photos and Website links for the site! Sorry if the site is a little slow, as I have received a great number of hits today alone (Over 6000 so far!) but please be patient. I am working on adding the photos sent to me to the Galleries, creating new galleries and I will update them as soon as I can (don't forget to hit Crtl-F5 to force your browser to download the page again to make sure you have the latest update).
People are Sending in response and links for their websites, which is great news! If anyone wishes for their Photo Galleries to be placed on the website as well, simply email me (using the contact form) and let me know what your website is. If you are happy to do so, you can alternatively send me all your images and I will put them up on this website, and you will get recognition for your contribution.
If anyone receives any problems with accessing photos, links, or other, please email me and I will be sure to fix them asap!
Likewise, I am open to suggestions and would like to hear from you if you have any ideas on how I can make the site more functional and better looking!
