    Okay…so I’ve been messing around a little bit…kind of using some of the options here, Marty. I tested out linking a post to my blog. Easy peasy. I tested out linking to Facebook and my Twitter homepage. Easy peasy.

    I like these options…and they were smooth as all get out. Nice work cowboy.

    Dear dear Webmaster…

    I love you. I love rick. I dream about you two cuddly men with some of the best hugs the universe has ever doled out.

    I am very excited about the new site and many things about it.

    Have you ever known me to put forth an idea delicately? Am I not the Queen of putting my foot in my mouth and telling it like it is? Have I ever backed down from taking a stand when it comes to “doing the right thing”? Risking diplomacy and friendship in the doing so?

    No.

    It’s a curse, believe me.

    …did I tell you I love you? I do.

    ….bbbbuuuuutttt…..

    After several days of coming to visit and making posts and reading through the site and playing with my blog link and twitter…I find one SMALL detail.

    I find the sections and the different pages a little bit of extra how do i say…effort, work? Distracting a little…

    You know one of the things that I feel was very special about the old site…was being able to make one or two clicks and looking at the whole page of entries and seeing if there were any new posts.

    It wasn’t just about being lazy (which i admit I am a bit of a slacker) but it is also about stream of consciousness and the flow of discussions. And quickly knowing where one has posted. I can’t help feel that the Forum was unique from other discussion boards because you could scan over topics in one look…and transfer to enter each discussion in a way that seemed to mimic the organic way the brain and mind works.

    I find the separate pages a bit troubling when trying to see if someone is posting or anything new is out there or where I last read.

    I have no idea if anyone else feels this way…or if its just some weird quirk I had…but I felt I needed to share this with you and with others here.

    Obviously the new site hasn’t prevented me from talking my ass off here or anything…but I just wanted to put this out there.

    …please know that I love the work you do here and your soul is wonderful!!!!!

    feeling crappy
    Candy

    Candy:

    Thanks for your comments. It’s a WordPress plugin I’m using, and it’s to some extent configurable. I don’t know whether I can stop the multi-page thing, though the old Forum was nearly unique in the one-page-ness of the threads.

    Let me look into it and see what I can find out.

    Marty

    Oh Marty, you’re such a rock star. I have felt like a creep for saying anything all night when I went to work…I just felt sheepish.

    I see what you’re saying about the plug ins. This may not be an issue for anyone else. But if it is configurable…I will owe you at least a steak dinner. You know I can make it to Memphis in 8 hours and Stagg and I are hoping to be there to busk some art work down on Beale Street in the next couple months ha ha!

    Cheers, and thanks for listening.

    Candy

    I’ve upped the message count per page to 50. I may go to 100, eventually, but I think we should be cautious and see how this thing treats us.

    Y’all let me know if you have problems or other aesthetic concerns.

    Thanks,

    Marty

    Also, try to upload that image again. You should be able to.

    For what it’s worth & despite what’s been said, I like the look & feel of the new site & I wouldn’t feel the need to change anything. I understand a tweak here & there but it’s fine as it is. Great job putting it together.

    “I have no idea if anyone else feels this way…or”

    I do. Would be nice if all recent posts could be noted on one page.

    The one-page overview of active threads at Jada, with archiving but easy access of older threads, was quite handy for a quick, one-click visit to the forum several times a day to see what was up. Thanks, though, Marty et al. for providing such a forum and even allowing for non-McCarthy discussion threads.

    Yes Marty you make sense about letting the site and us see how it treats is.

    I am on my phone right now and this new site is a whole different animal. Not even the blog background color shows up. Very interesting. It’s like I’m seeing the bare bones of the matrix here ha ha.

    I totally see a difference with the extension of pages ratio of posts. It’s made it a little more user friendly.

    It will be interesting to see how this works and you are so generous to let us respond with how it feels from this side of the grid.

    I will trying posting image again when I get home…. Thanks. It’s kind of fun checking out how to load a video etc. but not on my phone… Let’s see if this works…
