Hmm... It seems I've broken links in comments (at least in the photo galleries).  I'll work on fixing that up this week.

Might be related. Couldn't get into my photo library. Just get a spinning icon. Tried creating  a new library, which I could, and added a photo, but when I tried to go back to it, spinning icon again. Funny thing is that I can get into other photo libraries, just not the ones I create. Same thing happens with Chrome and Explorer.

Thanks for the report.  I'll investigate this weekend. There's a lot of complexity in the gallery code, and I really need to rewrite it to simplify it.

In the meantime, I've enabled emoticons cool

Also, urls should now automatically turn into active links as you type them in the forums.  For example, http://www.thereminworld.com.

Thanks. Making links active like that is great.

Sorry I haven't been able to fix the gallery yet. Hopefully tonight. My wife is out of town and I have the kiddos all to myself right now, so free time is in short supply.

Well the good news is that I found the bug, and it's happening because your album name has numbers in it.  As a temporary work-around, I renamed it to "RKPhotos", and now at least the latest one works.  Unfortunately, this means that any photo album with a number in the title won't be accessible until I fix the bug.

This has to do with the way I'm finding the album ID from the URL.  I'll find a more reliable way to do this.

 Regular expressions are your friends in that case! :-)

And in this case, also my problem :)

I will continue working in a fix... But if anyone can build a reflex that will always pull the album ID from the URL successfully (accounting for cases where we also have numbers in album name or also show a photo ID) I will gladly try it out and send you good vibrations via the ether!

Update - I've just found and tested a simple fix for this and will push it to the site tonight along with some bug fixes for the social sharing buttons in various places.

The fix is deployed. Please let me know if you have any more problems with the photo galleries not loading properly.
