Posting to the Calendar and Events forum

Sunday, October 3rd, 2010

The overhaul of has resulted in a change in how the Events Calendar system works. In my opinion, it’s a bit easier.

To add an event to the calendar, simply click on “Calendar” at the top, click the appropriate button to add either a recurring or single event, and enter the event details. You will no longer need to select the Events forum to post your event in as the new system will automatically post it in the Events forum for you. The posts in the Event forum will not use your username, but rather the username “Calendar,” which will copy the information you entered in the Calendar. The copied post will contain a link to the Calendar item.

Please note that the posts in the Events forum may not show up right away, as it depends on the time of day and when the Calendar’s feed is imported.

Site Overhaul Nearly Complete

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

It’s been a long couple weeks… Actually, it’s been longer than that, but I’ve been working on the actual forum conversion for over a week and I’m finally at a place where I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Of course, this site is a constant work in progress, but my checklist is getting smaller on a daily basis.

There are still several issues that still need to be addressed, so this won’t be the official announcement listing all that’s new. But, be assured that there are extensive changes, from the new design and logo to the new forum script, which still needs to be integrated into the new design. I hope you enjoy everything the new site has to offer!

Please feel free to explore, see what’s new, kick the tires, and let me know if you find any major problems.

Update on Site Updates

Monday, September 20th, 2010

The site overhaul has taken longer than expected, specifically the forum conversion. While the database has been converted from the current (old) forum, the new forum needs to be moved over from the test environment.

The old forum is closed. Please note that if you registered and/or posted after the database was backed up and before the forum was closed, you will need to re-register/re-post. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. I’ll post updates here and on Twitter, so keep an eye out for the relaunch announcement.

If you’re reading this blog, then you know that I’m busy with the site overhaul, or it’s complete. Either way, you’ll see the new design and should have access to the new forum. Please comment here, or in the feedback forum if you see anything that needs to be fixed.

New Blog

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

As part of the upcoming site overhaul planned for, a WordPress blog has been added. This blog will be used to provide site news, updates and announcements. It will also serve as way to showcase featured forum topics and activity.

Once the other new site features are implemented, it will become more clear whether or not the blog will be a permanent feature. I’m anxious to take the new site live and share the updates with Sacramento!

Thank you for visiting and I hope you’ll enjoy the work that’s going into the overhaul.
