Welcome to the new site. Divotmaker has been working hard to get everything moved over. We didn’t know if all the posts would be moved over, but they have been. We apologize if you received a lot of email notifications of past posts. Not sure why that happened, but as LC said, at least we know that part of it works.
This site has a little less frills as far as the posts and the forums go. Less is probably more. Less distractions on the posts anyway. We wanted to combine the forums with the news site.
If you have any issues, blame it on Divotmaker! 🙂
Excited to see this new format! I was sending a message to Admin and I am trying to reply back but when I look for the name it doesn’t pop up with the suggested names. How do I get an email to admin if I am not sure what the username is?
send it to me 🙂
The message does not self populate with your name. I tried typing in Elk Grove Laguna Forums, EGL Admin and nothing came up. Anyway, here is my FB link https://www.facebook.com/groups/1817376518477444/
This FB Group is for women who are interested in getting lip color that does not leave a mark on your coffee cups, your sweeties cheeks or lips and the color stays on for up to 10 hours! Check out my link, you are welcomed to look at all of the albums.
Some postings from the previous site did not transfer to the new one. Probably a time cut off?
Any posts made sometime on Thursday did not transfer over. It was a length process.
You can also click on a person’s username or image in the forum posts, then click the “Private Message” button to send a PM.
How funny I was going to ask how long ago the site changed. I came on here to see if there was info on the lights at the Ranch and I found what I was looking for.
I wasn’t even aware there was going to be a new site.. I started getting all kinds of emails about old posts.. I thought something was spamming me so I unsubscibed… had no clue until I tried to log in and there was an error.. Good thing there was a “or go to”..
Quick question…When I used to go on, there was a view that would order for various Forums (Fora?) in reverse order of when the last post appeared. I can’t seem to find that view. Is it still accessible? Thanks!
Yes, What Steve said. That that function or ability exists here it would be great. It was really easy to see what new threads had responses since your last visit.
I will check with divot on the recent posts thing.
I just added that functionality so you will see a little blue flag for a topic with the replies in it that you haven’t seen. There’s also an option to “Mark all as read” (it’s next to Subscribe). You can also check the box “Notify me of follow-up replies via email” or subscribe to a topic to be notified of new replies. See below.
I like how when you scroll the header stays where it is at
Ok I don’t have a cute little blue flag on unread topics. Maybe it’s the web browser I am using, I don’t know. I have been relying on the “recent posts” list on the right side of the main page.
The flood of mail happened because the posts were imported as if they were new posts. I would guess the default account settings have ‘notify on being named’ features turned on, thus the flood.
I’m mostly interested in seeing what the new posts are, but I don’t see how to do that yet for all forums. Any hints would be appreciated.
I can tell after I’ve entered a forum, though. 8)
Good job at copying over old posts. Looks like my post count is about right. 8)
In fact, it appears the site is still processing all the old posts to construct notifications.
Fist time logging into the new site. Looking good!!!
