Title: Forum Announcements
Post by: Aussie Sapphire on April 02, 2013, 02:49:39 PM
Just starting this topic as a sticky so we can have one good spot for important forum announcements. It will be easily found on the home page of the forum just to make it easier to keep up with major developments here at ALF.

Just getting over the main forum upgrade for now.  Next job is the major website upgrade at Aussie Sapphire and then we will refocus on tweaking the look of the forum with a (hopefully) more attractive theme.

Should not be too many more dramatic changes - I think we will just let everyone get used to this new upgrade before we get too ahead of ourselves.

cheers from Leah.

Leah,
Sorry but I don't know what a "sticky" is. Can you explain?
Hope this doesn't destroy your holiday.!!

No worries - a "sticky" is just a topic that is "stuck" to the top of the page for stuff that we want to keep in front of everyone.

We had a couple of days off at Easter (and a big backlog of parcels for Sunday arvo/Monday morning) but our main break will be in a couple of weeks when our school holidays start.

Will have a week at the beach for the boys to do some fishing. I will be relaxing in a comfy chair doing lots of reading. Looking forward to it - this last 6 months has been a bit crazy.

cheers
Leah

I plan to do a series of FAQs (with screen shots and/or videos) to answer some of the common queries about using the forum - eg. how to post pictures, setting up your profile, etc.

If you have suggestions for what you would like to see covered in this series - please reply here and I will add them to the "to do" list.

Will be working on this over the next few weeks in between taking a week off at the beach and upgrading our NEW website.  The new website will be going live VERY SOON so keep an eye out for this.

cheers
Leah

Good idea Leah.  :)
Not all of us are up to date on all computer or forum jargon.
