We've improved the software of this forum, and added some GREAT new features!

:arrow: Jump to Page. When you go to a thread that's got, say 45 pages of posts, you can now go directly to any page you want! (no more page-by-paging!) It looks like this:
Goto page 1, 2, 3 [ ] >> 55, 56, 57 Next
There's an obvious box between the brackets. Just enter the page number you want in there and hit enter!

:arrow: Save as Draft. If you start to write a post, but don't have time to finish, you can save it as a draft to finish later! To later FIND and access this draft: Go to the main forum navigation page (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/index.php), and look in the upper right region. Click on "View your drafts and posts"

:arrow: Improved Forum Searching. When you conduct a search of the forum, the default is now to search for posts that include all the terms you've entered, and to display the results as individual posts, not as the entire thread containing the posts. These were options before, but they are now the default.

There are few other very minor changes in the works, but the ones above are the biggies. Enjoy!!

Thank you! I noticed the view your drafts and thought I had forgotten to send something I typed! The page finder will come especially in handy when I'm trying to find something. :D

Those are all great contributions to the site Amy. I know that there have been several times that I could have used each one of the features that you mentioned.

Think I'll go use the new search features to look up something....

Just one minor request. Can we get the dancing pierogi and elephant emoticons? ;)

Glad y'all enjoy them!

Ingrid, what the heck is a dancing pierogi?! :roflhard:

I've made another small improvement that folks might appreciate:

I've increased the alloted size of the signature; to better accomodate long things like the Knitter's Geek Code. :thumbsup:

:shock: No way Kelly, is this some Photoshop trick?

I just found that web site randomly!

There's a whole thread on her blog about the Pierogi Fest! Really!

That's too funny!

KellyK, I'm soooooooo behind on your blog thread. I keep wanting to take a peek at current activity, but I'm stubborn and determined to truly "catch up", which will take me a good hour or 2, at least. :blush:

Love your new avatar BTW!! :heart:

Hmm, that "jump to page" feature isn't showing up for me anymore...is anyone else having this problem?

Yeah, I've noticed that too - it's on the top, but not on the bottom. :thinking:

I don't know about anyone else, but I like having it on the bottom. This way, when I get to the bottom of reading a page, I can just click on to the next page and it is right there. Having it at the top of the page seems a little out of the way to me. Or, am I just weird.... :shock: That could be the case too. :lol:

KellyK

Ill email Amy about it...maybe it was deleted by accident?

well that is why i was thinking i had forgotten how to navigate the site yesterday. couldn't figure out why i was all discombobulated with having to scroll back up to the top to change the page and wondering how certain threads didn't have any additional pages to them...was vedddddy confused...lol

Sorry about that!

The "jump to" feature wasn't working on the bottom one (just on the top one). DH couldn't get it working, so I told him to delete it, and he thought I meant to take out the whole page-turning feature at the bottom!

It's back now; you can click "previous" and "next" at the bottom of the page, just like the original design. You just can't do the Jump-to option, which is only at the top of the page. Not sure why it didn't work at the bottom, but no use having it there if it doesn't work!

Thanks so much Amy! I really love having the previous and next at the bottom. I don't use the Jump To feature that often, but having that at the top is great too!

Update 10/9/05: I've dramatically increased the allowed signature length to 900 characters, since links can take up so many characters.
