Lightbulb New Forum Features & Look

The programmers finally released the latest version of the message board this afternoon. As you can see, there are lots of new features. There are still some things that we didn't get finished and the look and some features may change over the next few days. We didn't want the board to be down any longer than necessary tonite.

As soon as you can, click on the "user cp" button at the top right and edit your profile and edit your options. If you're unsure of what something is, just leave it as it is. You can always change it later.

Be sure to put your birthday in your profile. We now have a calendar (see top right of page) and it will show who has a birthday each day. Don't worry, no one's age will show.

There are buddy lists you can set up and you can also send instant private messages to any registered user unless they have this feature turned off.

Also, if there is anyone that you prefer to not see their posts, go to "Edit Ignore List" in the "user cp" section and just put in their forum user id. We have not tested this feature but it is supposed to block out anyone's posts that you want to see.

If you run into any problems, try the private message (pm button) on one of mine or Chris' posts somewhere and let us know. Just remember, this version is new to us, too but Chris will do his best to find the answer.

Start exploring and have fun!

Wowser!!

We'll all have to play around a bit with everything new to get used to it. I think that the buddy option is a great idea! Looks fabulous!

Beffers

Beffers, it's the private message feature you want to get rid of if you don't want anyone sending you a message.

Click on "user cp" in the top right of this page, then click on "Edit options". You'll need to change "Enable Private Messaging?" to "No". The buddy list is just for you to add your favorite people to so you'll know who is on line so you can send a private message to if you want.

Spell check - it was supposed to be part of this upgrade but something didn't work out with the programmers that were doing it. Maybe it'll be in the next upgrade. I wanted that feature, too.

It's a little slow on us, too off and on but can't tell if it's the board or our connection. We're having some bad weather and DirecTV keeps going out and we're getting other site's pages loading slow, too. We'll see how it's working by tomorrow night.

If anyone asks a question and we don't respond, it'll probably be because our cable went out or no electricity. We'll get back to you ASAP.

This is really cool, Linda!

I love the way we can change colors and the print is a lot bigger! I am going to try to add an avatar to my posts now.

I like the features, but it is soooooo slow. If it isn't the weather, I'd rather have the old look and a faster load. Thanks.

lovetowin, check out my post 3 before yours. It's not the forum. It has something to do with the network our server is on. In fact, speed seems to be picking up for us so maybe they've got it fixed.

Seems to be running a lot better now. Glad to hear it was a problem at the server end and not the new software!
