Banner pic has vanished?

Is there something we can do better? Do you want to suggest some content or functionality or is it all fantastic already? Let us know in here.

The banner picture on the Beoir home page featuring the familiar bottles of beer seems to have vanished, at least for me. It may be co-incidental, but seems to have happened when the Fran Well interview article appeared. I use Firefox as my browser.

This is how it starts. You let in one macro, then suddenly all the craft beers disappear.

Working OK for me now. Did it fix itself? I hate when it does that.

We could do with an update to that photo, since Dungarvin has new, sexy labels :) Any volunteers? I don't have a lens big enough to reach over there ;)

No, apparently if you are going to post an Article and mark it as a Feature, you need to provide a banner for the top of the screen. I changed the type to General.

Ahh. Good old Joomla. In time, you will learn to love its funny little habits*.

It's more to do with the template module for the banner on the front page. It accepts one or more categories, and we made "features" the one, meaning it'll try to stick anything from that category into the scrolly thing, but of course, then an appropriately-sized image is needed. But anything can go on the front page.
