GREENVILLE— Darke County Now plans to upgrade its server in the next month. The server upgrade will allow the site to house as many photos and videos on its server as is stored on the DCN Facebook page.
“I’m really pleased that the support from the community has pushed our plans ahead of schedule to upgrade our servers to allow everyone to view all our photos on our site even for those that do not use Facebook,” Editor Gaylen Blosser said. “It’s pretty cool we are running about three years ahead of our original projected timeline.”
Currently, the site is limited to five images per story, but once upgraded, the server will have the capacity to hold thousands of images and videos. The upgrade will allow DCN readers without social media better access to their large library of media, as well as keep all DCN content under one roof.
“As part of this community, we are excited to create a platform where we can all come together, access the information we need, and to engage one another,” General Manager Michael Blackwell said.
DCN will still continue to post images to their social media channels after the server is upgraded. Readers can expect the upgrade in the next month. In addition to future media, past content, like images from The Great Darke County Fair or past episodes of Tuesdays with Tonya, will be uploaded to the site once the server is upgraded as well.
Due to the upgrade, DCN appreciates your patience as some minor technical errors and delays on the website are expected. These should all be remedied by the end of April.
