New homepage

Post by Katiedot on Sat Apr 14 2012, 16:09

You may have noticed that there's a new homepage when you first open this site.

I've noticed that there are two different types of visitors to the site: those who like to read the news and go, and those who want to chat about it.

The new home page (also called the blog) is a general news update so people in a hurry can see the latest stories and then leave. You can't make comments on the blog. If you want to talk about something, then come to the forum and post here as normal.

The forum is exactly the same as always: it's where we all post new stories and then comment on it.

You can switch between the forum and the blog any time by clicking on the buttons at the top of the page.

Any questions? Comments?

On the bog? I'd rather you didn't . . . !

Seriously though. At the moment the blog can only be updated by me. We'll see if that still works when I travel but I only wanted the 'proper' news stories on there, not all the little bits that we post in the forum.

So, does this mean we've graduated grade school and we're in high school now!!??? (I don't mean that in a catty "high school" way). This is great!!! Can't wait to see what our college years will bring!!

Thanks for all the updates Katie. Only thing missing for me is that there no indication of who is on line. I know, I'm nosy, I do miss that feature though. LOL

This is wonderful. What I have always liked about this site is the ease in which we can use it....that goes for viewing and posting. All the other sites tend to be confusing. You have really done a great job...hey maybe it can be a new career for you---Website designer. Thanks for everything!

I see you're on line only because you posted but the on-line symbol is not there for me. Crying or Very sad

I wonder why I got the distinction of being hidden. LOL

p.s. Just got Katie's message. Thanks.

You mean the little band on the profile of each post, right Cindi?

I think Mel means the list at the bottom of the forum homepage.

I don't know what happened to my original post but nice job, Katie! There are times when I don't have enough time to weed through everything to find just the news items on George and this makes it much easier to get the latest updated news, without all the commentary. Thumbs up!

That's cos it wasn't there before and if I can't get it to work the way I want it to, it'll be gone again soon. Unless anyone feels particularly attached to the calendar already?

Not particularly attached, but it is a nice feature. Especially if you calendar George's events on it, too. KInd of a Where's George Now at a glance.

Good luck with it, whatever the outcome. And I really appreciate all the changes you've made. Really nice and user friendly.

Just a real nice "feel" to the forum. Not that it wasn't nice before, just seems a little more uptown. Oh, do I need to wear my pearls when reading now?

Katie, did I read here that you devised an easier way to import a picture into here?

I tried it before using www.servimg.com but it wouldn't let me in.

No, servimg will only work for me. I was hoping the picture gallery would help but it doesn't.

It's not that hard to add pictures. Take a look at the 'how to' section in the 'things you need to know first' forum.

Thanks for the green Joanna - I'm glad you have at least the positive. I still don't have any signs. Maybe it's just a glitz and Katie will fix when she gets back.

I'd give you a green too but I CAN'T. I wasn't fishing for the green trout, honest. LOL
