    Congratulations, Marty, on the new website. You founded the old one and it had a long run. Best of success with this one.

    I’d like to second Peter’s congratulations. It’s looking pretty slick in here. And finally we can get email notifications and the like! Great job.

    One thing – I seem to have access to the WordPress dashboard of the site. It sort of looked like I might be able to fiddle around with things there but I didn’t touch anything for fear of doing damage. Not sure if this is something innocuous in which I wouldn’t actually be able to make any changes to the site, but I just thought I’d flag it up for you in case it is something that needs changing.

    I’m confused by that also. I also wonder if there is a way of downloading a picture to put in our little boxes to replace the greyscale and white chess pawn looking thing.

    Dowdy:

    You should have access to the WordPress Dashboard. It should not, however, be unlimited.

    I’ve set the role as “Forum Participant.” If you can actually change anything else, let me know ASAP.

    Thanks,

    Marty

    Those are called Gravatars.

    I think you can go to Gravatar.com and enter an email address. Pick an image, and it shows up across all WordPress sites when you post. Or something crazy like that.

    Marty,

    Ah, I see. I don’t think it’s unlimited. I am able to access the list of users along with their email addresses, and can see various other usual WordPress things, but the dashboard doesn’t seem to be as extensive as it is on my own WordPress site. I do have the Quick Press thing in the top right, which allows me to publish something. Would that just create a topic in one of the forums? Should I try it out as a test?

    Yes, give it a try. Let’s see what it does.
