  • Très intéressant reportage... et belles photos ! Merci chère Nubia pour ce beau travail. Le fait de ne pouvoir accéder aux rapprochements des différents groupes nous gênent quelque peu :-))) J'avais pensé détourner le problème en passant directement par les groupes (même si c'est un très gros travail) mais j'ai remarqué qu'il existe également un bug sur les groupes par eux-même... on peut plus ajouter un diaporama par son url dans l'emplacement 'Paste URL' qui est complétement inopérant...ça tourne sans fin :-)))
