Thanks for fixing it, Daniel.

Hi, 

Here's another oddity... photos and text in the text box are posting across the address area at the bottom of the message window:

#5

#10

#52

#50

Could you take a look at it, please, Daniel?

Thank you.

This morning my browser said the NARGS site was "untrusted".  It mentioned that the certificate may have expired.  Was that a hiccup in my browser or is there a problem with site security?

Google Chrome told me the same thing today and I also note that where a Web Address is shown that the https element is now scribed through with a red line. There would seem to be a serious point here that needs to be answered very quickly for us all to be sure we are working in a safe environment.

You sure are an adventurous bunch!

I opted not to open this site when Firefox warned that "If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue."

 

Anyway, the problem has since been corrected.

Another baffling oversight is the "Contact" box that appears at top of each page on this site. 

When you click on "Contact", it says "This Contact form will send an email to the specified recipient(s)"  and below that, you are supposed to fill out your own identification info and your message.  There is, however, no facility for choosing the recipient of your message.

   Whenever enigmas like this come up, I search the page for places that are clickable, and often find the answer.  You can click on any of the options under "Boards and committees" at the right, and then choose you recipient.  Unfortunately, I can't find any option for sending to multiple destinations as is indicated.

I sent an email today using the website and got this message:

The specified file temporary://filexbnfQm could not be copied, because the destination directory is not properly configured. This may be caused by a problem with file or directory permissions. More information is available in the system log.

It is irritating to get errors when performing normal functions.  Often I get a stream of error messages at the top of the forum.  Do we blame this on drupal?  I don't know whether the email got through or not.
