THURSDAY! The Long-awaited site UPGRADE

The site is about to be upgraded - BEGINNING THURSDAY, 26 April - and may be unavailable sporadically for up to a day.

Please be prepared for occasional outages and exchange email addresses or other info now, if there's someone you need to be in constant contact with.

Our web guy will put up a post when it's in process.  

Hi all,

i will just mention only two issues as i do realise that there are a lot more and I am certain they will be fixed.

The messages are gone and the conversation link is not working, I do think that messages should be called messages... simple english is sometimes the best way to describe a feature. 

 

The tabs on the top of the desktop site should be put in order of usage. Blogs - forums -books etc.... maybe this isn't the order they should be in.... recent content is last? This should be near the top of the list...

 

The mobile version of this site is way too busy! Very confusing and too much showing up on screen. There are too many confusing options and no clear wording for your navigation options. Too many options that bring you too the same place. I would be use to navagating sites and at one stage left the mobile site as my brain was fried from not understanding where it was going to bring me to.

 

I understand that there are going to be issues so the main working issues should be sorted ASAP as this will effect users and the cosmetic issues can be brushed up on as time goes by.

The main thing to remember is a site has to be user friendly and have clear signposts (navigation tools) to bring you to the places on the site you wish to visit. From what i experienced is that the potential is there for this site to be just that but there is a lot of work to be done to bring it up to this standard.

 

I will get back with more feedback once current issues are resolved..

 

Regards

D

The Greatest Risk of all is Not taking the Risk...

We've always treated blog posts in the same way as forum posts and people comment on them. Using the blog tab to view blogs, it says there are comments on the various posts, but there seems no way to view them.  Same with our own blogs - all comments seem to have disappeared.

Conversation link still not working - if it was, I would have sent MacKintosh a hug. Another vote here for D's suggestion that conversations should be called messages.

Thanks for noticing the blog comments missing.   They are now back.  I'm still working on the Conversations tab.  Server processes going overtime are preventing me from correcting this.  To explain:

- Conversations are - well, self explanatory.  First you create a conversation between you and one or more other members.

- Then you send and receive messages within that conversation.

This means that messages are all nicely contained in the conversation threads they belong to.

I'm still not seeing blog comments - not on my own blog or anyone else's. But it's bedtime now, so I'll look again another time. Thank you for all your efforts! We do appreciate it!

Hi!

Well things certainly look far better with just that small change: the peach background. That makes it far easier to read for both those with and for those without any visual impairment. Whoever made that change: well done.

The text body is still squashed over to the right-hand side. You wouldn't do that on a sheet of paper and it doesn't work here either. Simply put the author's details above the post and then use the whole width of the page.

Anyway, once again, thanks for your efforts thus far.

Oh well, that didn't last long (the coloured background paper). Still, it was good while it lasted.

 

The front page seems to resemble much more of what it used to be like and we can now find stuff..

Sadly, I cannot find or find out how to post a new blog.

Supaguy, if you go to My Account and edit, and change to the mayo theme, you can choose your color scheme.

If you click on Blogs on the main menu then on the page you go to is a link at the top to create a blog post.

When you open a forum post to read it, there is nothing to show you who has written the opening post.

Yesterday recent posts was showing me 9 pages of recent posts to scroll through, which was much better, but today it's back to just 10 posts on the one page again.
