Looking good so far. Do you happen to know if there's any way of turning off notifications for this thread on my emails at all? Just that I'm currently getting repeats of everything everyone says for every thread I'm subscribed to, yet I'm not subscribed to this one Thanks for all the work.

Thanks, sylcar, that's what I thought but I just double checked that and I am only subscribed to daily digests (including replies) for 6 topic areas (none of them general or the like) and nothing else - except this one since replying (and I couldn't find a way to unsubscribe from this one when I wish to).

I made it here!! Updated my profile, I'm thinking it will take me the rest of the week to figure everything out! I've only read this thread so far, so I'll have to see how to navigate through the forums and topics.

In case anybody is curious, I got our new registration spams down to zero since I made one change. We'll see how long it lasts. I added a question to registration that says we manually approve all regs, and we will not allow any spammers... and notice the board has ZERO spam? You then have to pick a choice from a pull down menu that either says, "I'm a spammer and I'm wasting your time" or "I'm a real fan and I can prove it." Zero regs that say I'm a spammer since the new board is in place.

Mummakook, when you come to this page, go to the top right. Do you see a green check mark and it says something like Following This Topic? That means you will get an email every time someone posts. If you click those words, it will change to a "no" sign (like the I Don't Want To Dance single ), and you will NOT get emails anymore. PS: We got ONE reg spam so far.

Interesting....apparently new posts in W2S are not reported in recent activity. I did not know there were any new posts in that section since I've only been clicking on recent posts in the "recent activity" sidebar. And now I see there was a new post in W2S on Aug. 25, but it did not show up in the "recent activity" and I never scrolled down to...

OK I have an answer for brownie so far. Customer service with this company is LIGHTNING! Don't know how they do it! They explained that the things on the side (called Widgets) are seen by everybody. And in fact, you can get code to embed them on your own site! So because they are seen by everybody and possibly even off our site, they do NOT include any posts from forums that are private or restricted. So since W2S forums are private/restricted (you can only get in if we've manually marked...

Deb, I have two more questions. Sorry to keep asking so many questions! 1) How do you put more than one quote into a reply? I drove myself batty trying to do this earlier, and ended up just posting two separate replies. I know there is something called "multiquote" but I can't figure out how to use it. It was much easier to quote things when you could see the code in brackets - not the html, I'm not sure what that code is called. There's a button at the top of the reply box to view the html...

Re: Brand New Forum System!

Frenz Webmistress Deb ·
Happy to get questions! I did not see multiquote, but you can build your own quote by hand. For example, I could write, Brownie, you said: I copied and pasted what you said. I selected it, and then I used the WYSIWYG stuff in the reply editor to make it a quote. That's the quote marks! Click it again to UNquote, and go back out to the left margin. How you insert a link is also the same. You'd use the stuff at the top (or write your own HTML). For example, you'd highlight some words , go up...

Ok, I think I see how to do it. Wow, this is much more complicated than it should be. I think I will be making a few test posts somewhere. Thanks, Deb.

Yikes! And the above post indicates just how complicated it is! I was playing around with what you said, canceled it all, and just hit "post reply," and the above post is what came out. *laughs*

Is anyone having trouble viewing the new format on Android-based mobile phones? My Samsung just can't open more than the first couple of lines of the first post in any given thread. Very frustrating!

I've used it from my Galaxy S3 running ICS and then JB. What phone do you have and what version is it running? And what browser are you in? I'm in Chrome for Android.

I'm using a Samsung GT-I5500. I can't actual find out what version of Android it's running. Guaranteed to be whichever version turned out to be the crappest and was replaced quickly.

Can you download Chrome from Google Play and try that?
