PostSubject: Popping By   24/04/17, 03:24 pm

Just popping by. The site actually loaded quickly for me today. On Friday I called IT to figure out why a news site I use for work wouldn't load. They had me install an ad blocker saying that some ad on the site was causing it to get caught in our firewall. That made me think that perhaps the same thing was happening here as well. Seems to be the case.

Anyway, not much going on in my neck of the woods. I may stop in more often now that the site actually loads for me, but not sure. Work has been busier lately which is nice as it makes the days go by faster.

I'm trying to use my weebly site more with my forums on there. I know ya'll didn't like them but I still do. I did finally post a new blog post the other day.

I hope ya'll are doing well. I don't have time to go read the months of chat I've missed out on. ((HUGS)) for everyone, yes even you Dougie.

Sorry you have had problems with Forumotion Sabs, but good it's all sorted for you now.

Nice to know you are again active on your blog.  I will pop over when I have the time.  At the moment I have been busy transfering my website from Weebly to here.  I still have a fair few pages to move.

I'm also thinking of moving my Luv 2 Cycle blog here too as I do love an all in one site.  I waited far to many years for Yuku to sort all that out.

I think with that forum you have on weebly (can't remember the name of it now) it sort of doesn't give a good basis for real in depth discussion and chatting.  It feels more like one should only be leaving a quick comment rather than anything more meaty as posts on a message board do.

Martha and I are just setting up a Directory for boards, blogs and websites if you want to put yours on it.  Along with adding it to the Top 100.

And if you want to start up an affiliates section on your website then also put your site down in my affiliates forum.

Actually you can have as in depth of a discussion as you'd like on them just as with any other forum. The company that made it designed it around discussion rather than socializing, which is why I've had to sort of hack the code to have images show up the way I want them to.

The main difference between those forums and any other is just in how you view the threads and the fact that by itself it is rather plain.

Now I do have the "comments" thread on a separate page, which is just for casual hellos, much like a comment box, but because I have trouble with the scaling on it, it works best on its own page.

I may set myself up on your pages and create an affiliates section. I'll see what time I have to play with it today.

I'm done with Yuku other than to keep an eye on an old forum I'm an admin of just in case people stop by. And I have a few things on my Yuku board I've yet to save.

I've actually changed the URL for my site. It's now http://simply-blue.weebly.com/forums.html if anyone is looking for me. I still haven't gotten around to doing your affiliate thingy yet.

Gosh it has been ages since I even went back to my own Weebly site!

If I remember correctly what put me of using an outside forum and have that attached to weebly, was the fact that we had to register for that as well as weebly and I just had enough of registering all over the place.

Yes, that can be frustrating. 

The forums I use allow you to log in with FB, Twitter or Google. And I've also changed over my blog comments to use FB commenting. Every time I post a blog link, everyone just comments on FB, so maybe by allowing the FB commenting I might get some more comments on my blog itself.

I'm pretty sure Weebly itself lets you log in with FB or Google also.

Either way,  you know where to find me.

Oh yes I know we get the option to use FB or Google log in with more and more sites, but my problem with that is that for example FB requests you use your own full name and there is no way I am posting all over the web with my own full name.

I will never use Facebook to log in with.  I simply don't want them linked up with other sites I go to.  And of course as you say Martha they also insist you use your real name.  That's also a reason I wont use G+ either.

Actually with G+ you can use a nick name as I have done just that!

But I agree all these so called easy sign in ideas are not that good as they are not so safe then!

Really?

I didn't know that.  The last time I went onto G+ the only way you could have a nick name was by having a page.

At the moment I obviously have an account in my own name, but I had to create a page attached to it to use Zandranna.

I might go and have another look over there.  Although if I remember their format is absolute crap.  I could never find my way around it.  I don't think I know anyone that really actively uses it now.

Everyone had a go using it when it was new, but no one ever seems to have any links to it on their profiles and such as they do Facebook and Twitter.

So are you saying that with my actual account instead of having my real name where they demand first and last name.  I can now change that to one single username and not have to fill in the second box that they have for the surname?

Sorry Sandy I got that meddled up. What I did was put Spheric as first name and Martha as last name.

Hello Bluerose, I think I recognize you from the "old place" - nice to see you!
