Image gallery update - better object tagging and search

Hi folks,

This evening I've rolled out another software update to the BAA image gallery.

The physical layout is entirely unchanged, but the search-by-object and search-by-user pages should now give much more useful results.

The interface used to tag objects when you upload images should also be much more reliable. Specifically, I'm aware that it was previously virtually impossible to tag certain comets, e.g. "1P Halley" always got confused with asteroid 2688 Halley, meanwhile "6P d'Arrest" turned into asteroid 9133 d'Arrest.

Please let me know if anything got broken along the way.

Cheers,

Dominic

Nothing so far

Did a bunch of searches earlier. Seems to be working well. Thanks!

Update

Thanks Dominic.

Good work.

Have you updated the list of objects that can be tagged to include the latest asteroids and the solar system satellites?
