As of today – May 8, 2013 – the transition to our new home and platform is nearly complete.
By and large, the whole process was relatively painless. We hit only minor obstacles in the migration. We had to shut down for a couple of days when we we discovered one “feature” that had to be turned off. But once we got it back up the adjusting went pretty quickly and smoothly.
We’re still learning our way around. Today, for example, we discovered that the Forum Search function is going to take some finessing. And we’re still trying to get users to change their profile and Login/User ID so that real names will appear on the forum Index page – that could take some time.
I spent most of today transferring setting up this WordPress portion of the site, and transferring all the resources for newbies to a new page just for newcomers.
Now we’ll see if I can keep maintain a more regular info-flow to this front page than I have in the past. I’m not the most reliable or consistent blogger in the world. I just post when something strikes me. The real content on this page is user generated in the forums.
Please feel free to offer any feedback or suggestions you have for the new format. It’s still a work in progress (and always will be).
