    Site Update


    socceronly

    Apologies for this taking so long.  The upgrade script went haywire and decided to self destruct.  Fortunately the powers that be were able to figure it all out and get us back on our feet. 

    The new software has many new features, some of which we will explore turning on over the next few weeks.   

    Forum Default View -  You can change this, but it now functions more like an activity stream for all posts.  

    Reactions - We now have reactions to post rather than just Like

    Shipping - We will no longer ship Oversized Letter Mail.  The default shipping will be tracked expedited parcels.  This increases our default shipping cost so it really is only effective to buy more than one item.   Canada Post is simply not letting us ship a shirt or scarf in what used to be a $3.50 envelope.  Make no mistake when you go to a Canada post outlet, the people at those front desks are sales people in disguise. They have quotas or at least get bonuses for driving more sales to things like Express Post.   I consider this a terrible disservice to the public. 

    Member Map - Thought it would be fun to see where everyone is from:  http://www.thevoyageurs.org/membermap/

    Default Letter Avatars - Defaults to the first letter of your username for those who have not up loaded one.

    Signatures - Signatures should work if you have been on the site long enough. If these prove irritating, we will kill them. 

    One of the new features I have not yet turned on is Clubs.   I may delete all of the City based Voyageurs FB Pages and pull it back into the site.   The Facebook pages are  too cumbersome on mass.   It's also very unclear how FB decides who gets to see what.  You need to pay them it seems now if you want to get your message out there.

    Looks good.  I am not always a early adopter or fan of change, but I like it so far and am sure the site will be better as I get used to the new feel.  

     

    Cheers

    FWIW - the map function isn't working on my iPad.  This is what I see:

    That's because you don't exist in this dimension.

    Thank you for the upgrade.  Wonder if possible to do away with the confirmation click after you click on Mark Site Read.  Find the extra click annoying.  If one makes a mistake, nothing is lost, only threads are not bold anymore.

    How can i change it back to the original view? I like the member map board, not so much about the Letter Avatars, basically looks email now a days. The reaction is alright. On computer/Mobile there's a noticeable difference

    You mean the original view of the Forum? 

    It's at the top of the thread list, you can pick the three different views

    @socceronly The new layout looks great! Love the option to be able to have reactions other than "like". The new logo at the top of the page is really nice as well. Great job!
