Welcome back to ScrappinChat!
Welcome back to ScrappinChat!

You may notice that going to ScrappinChat.com redirected you to a different URL. That was intentional for now, and eventually we'll be back at ScrappinChat.com.

There are a few things that didn’t migrate over on their own, so you’ll have to take some action.

Time Zones: Go to User CP->Edit Options and look in the Date Time Options area to correctly set your time zone

User Groups: you'll have to re-join the user groups (User CP->Group Memberships) for Disney, Getting Healthy, Hot Topics, Retreats and Simplify.

You'll have to upload and set your avatar: User CP->Change Avatar

Your signature may need some work. User CP->Change Signature. Some formatting didn't come across correctly.

Your user title can be modified from User CP->Edit Profile.

You can choose a different theme in User CP->Edit Options. Look in the lower right for the drop down titled "Board Style".

In User CP->Edit Options, upper left is "Privacy". You might want to uncheck the "Hide me" box if you want people to know when you're online. eta: this is now unchecked by default.

Take a look around, kick the tires, and let us know if you notice anything else that needs fixing.

Tracy has done a great job with this migration. Let's all give her a big round of applause! CheerCheerCheer

RE: Welcome back to ScrappinChat!
And actually, I think the default setting must be for everyone to be "invisible". I don't like that. Sad If you'd change it on your user cp that would be loverly.

Be kinder than necessary, because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Still scrapbooking the old fashioned way.

RE: Welcome back to ScrappinChat!
I found another thing you may want to edit: invisibility. Smile

In User CP->Edit Options, upper left is "Privacy". You might want to uncheck the "Hide me" box if you want people to know when you're online.

eta: I added this to the original post.

We used to have a spot in our profile to put in the number of scrapbook pages we've completed. Is that coming back?

RE: Welcome back to ScrappinChat!
Maybe. I think we are going to be doing some polls to see what people want.

Also you will notice that your post count is probably lower than you remember - the old board was set up to automatically "prune" posts after a couple of years (except in forums that we wanted to keep them all, like layouts and recipes). So the old software still counted your posts even after the posts vanished. That didn't survive in the switch. So you'll just have to post more. Smile

I don't have the foggiest idea what my post count was. I've never looked at that.

RE: Welcome back to ScrappinChat!
There was a 'post count' feature? Huh.

In the January chatting thread, it looks like a page 15 is there, but when I click on it, it's not.

Where are the smilies? I don't have the box checked that says "disable smilies" cuz that to me would be "yes, I want to disable them".

Marfy...gonna go work on my own 'to do' list...

RE: Welcome back to ScrappinChat!
Martha, were you in full reply (click on "new reply") or Quick Reply? In quick reply, no smilies are shown. You can still type the smiley code, but you can't just click on a smiley.

eta: When I'm in General Chat, it looks like the January Chatting thread has 15 pages. But if I just click on the thread (not on a particular page number), it only has 14 pages. So, I guess I'm seeing the same thing Martha is here.

It's back. Smile You can set it in your profile and it should show up next to your posts. Let us know if it doesn't seem to be working.

Thank you to everyone who had a hand in the software update. I really appreciate everyone's efforts. Thanks to Brenda for giving us step-by-step instructions on how to reset all of our personal settings. [Image: clap3.gif]

Question:

Is there no longer an option to see "unread posts"?

I'm on a very tight schedule of not getting anything done!

In the default view, it is in the upper left corner underneath "Welcome Back"

Aretha - holler if you're having problems with this. There's New Posts and Today's Posts (Today's Posts shows 24 hours worth of posts (I think))

In your profile, click on Edit Options and uncheck "Show friendly redirect pages." to get rid of those stupid "Thank you for *doing whatever*, you'll be redirected soon" screens. Hate those things. Dodgy
