Hi Bella,

The new board switched over at the end of December. It takes a bit of getting used to, but the new features are good. I think the best feature for me is being able to send e-mails or personal messages directly to other people on the board. It is certainly a lot easier than it used to be. If you have any specific questions and need help, please post them and we will try to help you out. Welcome back! :)

God bless,
Mariann

Thanks!

I still cannot get all of the messages, I only see about 2/3rds of each message and
cannot see the introductory message of the topics. I am so sad because I loved this
board and wth wonderful people on it. I will keep trying. hadafish, formerly known

Jan,

Don't feel bad I had a lot of problems at first. When you said you could only see
2/3 of the message, you probably need to center it by pushing the right arrow
at the bottom of the window, that's what I have to do. Hope this helps!
I think you will like it when you get used to it...

Hi Judy, thank you. I do push that button all the way over and still I only see only
one third of the original message and two thirds of the replies. I don't have this
problem on any other site. I am on an Imac. My husband says I have to get a PC
for it to work and true enough if I use his computer it is fine. His is for
business and I rarely get to be on. However, I am pleased that I can post and
that you can see my reply. Thanks again. This is better than not being here at all! I
love the site. Jan, Caifornia.

I've never been on a message board at all and am writing this to be sure this is how you post something.

Warpspeed, welcome to the site! It worked fine. Now you can look around and post any questions, answers or topics. It helps to look around first and see if there is already a topic you are interested in, and add to that. Again, welcome.

See you around the site!

God bless,
Mariann :)

How do you post events to the calendar??? Every time I try to "Add and Event", I get the message "This menu is disabled" - there must be a way because I see that other people have posted events, such as Celiac Walks and Support Group Meetings. Please help.

Hi Paula,

I have never tried to add an event to the calendar, but it seems to me that it would have to be cleared with the sites administrator before being added. I would suggest when you get to the disables menu page that says you don't have access to that feature, then click on the "contact site administrator" link and ask what you need to do to add an event.

Good luck,
Mariann

Why are some (most) postings signified as "Pinned"? I have been a member for a year or so, although I have written just a few messages. Some of the messages I did send I never saw posted. Thanks.

Flo,
When you post a new topic on the board, it goes to one of the last few pages, which may be why you don't see it. When a moderator sees it they have a decision to move it to another section of the board (for example, if you posted a recipe under the Coping section) or they can "pin" it. If a moderator pins something, it shows that they've read it and it's important and good to read. Pinning a topic also makes it so it cannot be moved. All unpinned topics stay on the last pages of the forum along with any "moved" topics....pinned topics are towards the front in order of date. Hope this helps.... :)
