    Site Upgrades over the next couple of day

    I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be making a couple of changes of the next couple of days. If you encounter any problem, please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Re: Site Upgrades over the next couple of day

    Hi Jason,
    I noticed that if we pull up any thread, we can get back to the old format by scrolling down to the "Forum Jump" box at the bottom of the screen and selecting "Forums Home," but is there a quicker way to get the old view or to have the old view automatically appear?

    Hey Jason,

    when I click on the link ...unread posts, I get a mesage that this page does not exist.
    Further I did not have any problem up to now.

    If you go to the "Forum Home" page, then unread posts does work just in case you haven't noticed already
    Also if you type in forums after http://www.thamnophis.com you go to the original home page

    Re: Site Upgrades over the next couple of day

    Hey Jason,
    May I suggest adding a prominent button or link to the main "forum page" from the new homepage, since most people come here for the forum? Best,
    Rick

    Re: Site Upgrades over the next couple of day

    A link to the forum from the main page is coming. There will be a link in the “site navigation” box, and maybe on the menu. While I agree that the forum is still the main focus of the site, I am hoping to add some care sheets and a couple of other resources so people new to the hobby will not feel lost. I would have liked to have done all this in the background, but it would have meant shutting down the forum at least a couple of days. I will do my best to get it back to perfect working condition ASAP. Till then, please bear with me.

    Jason

    You can get to the main forum by bookmarking http://www.thamnophis.com/forum/ instead of http://www.thamnophis.com/ . Thanks abcat1993 for pointing that out.

    Problem has been fixed, and should work from anywhere on the site.

    I have update the Site Navigation box to include links to the forum and photo gallery and will also be adding a link back to the portal page and the forum to the menu/navigation bar, so there will be lots of way to get back and forth.

    If anyone is encountering any problems please post here, or send me a PM.

    Thanks,
    Jason
