We’ve made it this far! It was a very bumpy landing on our new site, but we’re making great progress through the many glitches we initially experienced. Here are a few of the big things we’ve ironed out in the last week:
- members are able to log in!! Normally this is something we expect, rather than celebrate. We all got an (unwelcome) lesson in not taking things for granted last week…
- no more 503 errors!!
- the site is loading faster and more consistently
- improved chat room configuration
- fixed a number of Search Engine Optimization issues (listed for the techies among us
That said, we still have a long list of other things to fix/improve/change. The very top priorities right now are:
New member registration: we expect to enable new member registration within 48 hours of this post.
Profile editing: We all really want to edit our profiles!! The developer who is working on this estimates that we will be able to by Monday or Tuesday of next week. Once enabled, you will be able to change your username, edit your “about me” section, add a link to your personal blog site, edit your “type of treatment/devices used”, and more.
Avatars in chat: Right now we all look the same in chat, and we’re not all the same!! Getting our avatars ported into chat will significantly improve the chat feature on the main page. It’s a high priority.
After these things are fixed our next level of priority includes further improvements to the chat feature (speed, PMing, configuration, 3-hour time limit…) and better optimization for people who use screen readers on the WordPress (non-forum) pages.
Please continue to post any bugs you encounter and suggestions/requests you have for the site here! They are all being added to our list, and will be addressed ASAP
Thanks for being here, and for your patience as we get settled in!
