I know there are some of you that are not satisfied with our new forum. Change can be very difficult and extremely frustrating. Although there are several changes that need getting used to, the benefits of this new forum are very high.
The changes that were made, were made to improve several factors, including things on the users side as well as things on Bountiful Baby’s side.
I apologize for not much notice on the forum changing.
I will personally answer any questions, help people get around, recommend things to Nevin, look into anyone’s ideas and ensure that everyone feels comfortable around this new forum.
Learning is slow but so far, I’ve changed my avatar which I hadn’t done on the old site since I had a signature photo and figured out how to hide the preview. Now to catch up on the missed 2 weeks of important news/gossip/births!
I know I’m the minority here, but I love the new format! It is so much easier to use (and see) on my smart phone. I hope everyone else adjusts to the change because I think they’ll love it once they get used to it. Also, thank you Bb for being here to answer questions!
If you are not signed in you can look at the very top of the screen. Click Home and it will take you to the store’s home page. There are other options up there too. However, once you sign it that all goes away. Seems like it could stay there for us members too?
There is not currently an option to have a siggy, but, you can upload an image in the ‘About Me’ section under ‘Preferences’ that will show up on your profile. I will see what I can do to get a signature photo on there. Thank you to everyone that is giving this new forum format a try! Once you get used to it, you will find there are many new benefits!
Well I just now figured out how to make and upload my own Gravatar but I might go change that now. I didn’t much care for the idea of having to sign into that Gravatar site and have something tied to my email address.
Okay, I figured out how to see everything at a glance sort of the way I could on the other board. If you click the 3 line bars at the top right corner then click the Categories word it takes you to a page where you can see all the forum sections and I think the last 3 topics posted in each section. This is taking some playing around to get used to but I think I am going to survive it. LOL!
The colored blocks with letter inside are called ‘Gravatars’. You can create or refresh your Gravatar, but a default Gravatar is a letter block that is automatically generated usually based on your username, thus yours being a C for Cathy But go into your preferences and you have the option of switching to an Avatar rather then a Gravatar where you can upload a custom image.
