I'm going to be uploading some historical photos of Oregon ghost towns, I check out copyright info first so no worries on that. I'm combing through the Salem public library's digital records, and they say as long as they are not used for profit purposes you can redistribute them. :)

I do it all the time. There should be a law.

Awesome, I see the Chitwood photos I uploaded made it up. (Lincoln County, Oregon.)

I've got 3 questions/issues:

:confused: Ghosttowns.com is a framed site, how do I link to an individual town? Like say, if I want to link a town to the Wiki's town article?

I see that Kernville also got a photo from the Salem archives, cheers to whomever submitted that, it wasn't I! However, I am a little concerned about it, I don't know if the "old" Kernville had a sawmill, it might be a "new" Kernville picture. Perhaps we should split the page into 2 parts, old and new kerville. Even the new one is semi-ghost! :o

Also, Tillamook County needs to be re-drawn for the website. When I first visited ghosttowns.com and looked at Bayocean, I thought it was completely submerged in Tillamook Bay. That's what it looks like on the current map. I find out later that the Pennensula extends pretty far north, but it is narrow and thin, much thinnner than at the turn of the 20th century when it looked large enough for a town! :o It's called Bayocean Pennensula today, it has a wildlife sanctuary on it for nesting birds if I remember right, and the Bayocean blue dot should rest on the Pennensula.

Also, I found a new ghost town called Dolph, but it rides right on the border with Tillamook/Yamhill county. I think as it is the blue dot wouldn't get placed in the correct county because Hwy 22 is cut off, and it's on 22, yet far east of Neskowin. Too much of a chunk of land is taken up by Yamhill County to be accurate. If those minor adjustments can be made to the county map we can plant Dolph on there! :)

Go to the town page you want to link to. Right click on the background (the old wood, make sure you're not selecting a specific picture). Select "properties" (bottom of your menu). The window that pops up will list the specific URL address. "Select" (highlight) the address, then right click again and select copy to save it. That will give you the specific town page.

Should look like this:

http://www.ghosttowns.com/states/nv/helene.html

Cool! Thank you!

Is there a way to do this in Firefox? :confused: I can't see any specific links when I R-click it with FF.

Honestly I have no idea how Firefox works, so I wouldn't know.

I would assume they have a way to see the specific page properties that you are viewing. Otherwise it'd be a waste of a web browser.

Tsarevna -

To do this in Firefox: right-click inside the page, then select This Frame -> View Page Info from the list; that will show you the address of the framed page so you can link directly to it.

TYVM! :)

Everybody should try Firefox at least once. I love it. One time the power went out, after I had researched a bunch of ghost towns, and I had at least 20 open tabs of webpages.

I despaired, thinking that I lost the location of those websites I searched so hard for, as I had not bookmarked them yet.

I re-start the computer, start Firefox, and a message popped up:

Would you like to continue where you left off?

YES!

And all the tabs popped back up, it was wonderful. :)

I don't know if the issue with uploading has been fixed or is maybe a specific issue with certain browsers or ? If you have any issues, PM Todd at his user name and he can likely figure it out.
