Recent Site Updates

Posted by glassicsonline on June 16, 2012 at 2:30 PM Comments comments (3)

Over the past few months we have been updating certain pages and evaluating others for updating.


Recently we have updated the "Glassics in the News" page with the addition of some new articles. The newest article has it's own page: "Hagerty Article". In the future we will be posting new articles on their own pages and linking them from the main "Glassics in the News" page. This will help keep things organized, and also give them a more prominent web presence. We will be switching some of the current articles over to their own pages in the near future.


Hagerty Article


We've been surfing around the web for cool videos, and we've had a list for a while of videos that we wanted to see on the site. We've recently updated our "Historical - Documentary" page with these new videos. We hope you enjoy these videos, and we thank the providers listed below each video.


Mercury Film Archives-Vintage Commercial...


Things change on the web, and sometime links just don't work anymore. A prime example of this was the "Online Albums" page. Links to almost all of the thumbnail images were changed over time by their owners, so while the links worked, the images didn't. It didn't make for a very pretty webpage. I like to keep the actual image urls, because if those don't work, sometimes the entire site has been moved and those are an easy indicator if the image codes are broken. This was a time consuming process, but we hope you enjoy the results.


Photo Gallery - how to

Posted by glassicsonline on June 16, 2011 at 8:12 PM Comments comments (2)

I figured I'd post something here on how to use the Glassic Online Photo Gallery since I've been getting a few requests for "how to's".


You have to be logged in to use most features of this site, including the Photo Gallery.


Once you are logged in, please post a nice shot of your boat or boats in the "Member's Boats" album. I rotate these through the slide show on the front page every so often, and it saves alot of time and lets me know you want your boat featured if it's in this album.


Then start you own album or as many as you would like. You can have an album for each boat or each restoration project. If you've got some pictures from a show, start an album and show them off. Drop me a line and I'll feature the album on our "Glassics Meets" page.


For more in depth info on using the Photo Galleries, please check out this article on posting photos in the photo gallery


The Photo Galleries are a nice addition to this site, make sure you try the full screen slide show feature, sit back and enjoy!

Online Albums

Posted by glassicsonline on November 26, 2010 at 2:23 PM Comments comments (2)

Update, 12/15/10, We've changed the Online Photo Album to a standard webpage for easier formatting and a smoother look, I'll leave the other page up in case anyone wants to try adding to the Wiki.


 If you post anything there that you want added to the main Online Photo album page, it would probably be a good idea to send us a message. Thanks.



We've recently added a new feature to the site showcasing various online photo albums.


If you know of an album that you feel should be included, either contact the site or feel free to add it yourself.


The "Online Album" page is a wiki page which means it's open to all members to add content.


If you need any help adding content, please contact us or use the forums to post a question.


As always, this is your site, so anything we can do to make it easier for you, or any feature you would like added, please let us know.


I sincerely hope you all continue to enjoy the site.

Feedjit App

Another interesting new app for the site.


This app shows the last ten visitors to the site and where they entered the site from.


It's a live feed reader linked up with Facebook somehow.


I found it on the Forgotten Fiberglass site.


More on this site later, but it's a pretty cool site with some classic fiberglass cars that are almost as obscure as our old boats.


Anyway, hope you all are enjoying the site, let me know if there is anything specific you would like to see in the future.




Facebook App

Something new here you may have noticed, let's give it a try.


Now when you go to the site you will see a Facebook logo at the top under the "Members Area" header. When you click "sign in with Facebook ID", you will be brought to your Facebook page and you can login from there. Then if you post something here, the site will give you the option of posting an update on Facebook as well.


Let's give it a try. This may be interesting.


Of course you can opt to sign in as usual and not go through Facebook. 

Motors and Racing History Page

Posted by glassicsonline on December 2, 2009 at 8:16 PM Comments comments (0)

The Motors and Racing History Page is up.


Been working on it a little as time permits.


Let me know if you have any comments, and as always, if you have something to add contact us or add it yourself on our Wiki Page.


Still lots more to add.


Looking for any old boat history information.


I think I may have access to some old advertisements and possibly some brochures, so I'll post those as soon as I get a chance to follow up on that. It will be a slow process as I'll have to scan them all myself.

Wiki Page Open

Posted by glassicsonline on November 11, 2009 at 7:18 PM Comments comments (0)

The Wiki page is now open.


This will be a new interactive experience for some members. If you would like more information about Wiki's, check out this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiki


Wiki Page- The wiki page is available for members to add content to the site. We will create an index on the resources page to link directly to the various sub pages.


Have fun and play nice ;)

Webs Back Online

Seems a construction crew cut through the main communication cable for "Webs", the hosting company of this site.


Back online and all is well

 The new Research section has been put in place. For now just a basic foundation, with Kelly from FiberGlassics graciously providing links to his Research Library. Thanks Kelly.



 More info will be added very soon. Other online resources will be included as soon as permissions are secured.


 Non Online information will also be added.


 There will be WIKI pages made available to anyone that requests one. Information may also be copied from the Historical Section of the Forums.


 Please use the Contact Us button, or email me direct at dave-dcc@hotmail.com.
