Quick Update

Hi folks. We now have a content block on the front page that displays your subscribed forums, if you have subscribed to any. If you haven't, you won't see the block. The forum subscription system is a great way to organize the forums you like to see and have them grouped for you in one place. You will see the forums you have subscribed to in your UserCP (Linked to above and to the right) and now you will see them on the new front page. To subscribe to a forum, go into that forum's index page and look for a 'Forum Tools' link, to the top and right of the main content area. Under that link will be a 'Subscribe To This Forum' link. When you click on it, there is an option to choose email notification for forum activity or not. To remove a forum from your subscribed forums list, look for an unsubscribe link, in the subscribed forums block on the main page or in your UserCP area.

I have resolved the problems with the forumjump drop-down list, in the navbar above. This drop-down list can be used to jump to any forum on the site, like the drop-down list at the bottom right of most forum pages, but this one is visible throughout the site. I am still working on fixing the links across the top of the page. They work within the forum areas, but not on the main page.

As many of you know, some workplaces and public venues block access to sites like Glock Talk, so some alternate domain names that point at the same location are available, like aritah.com. Adding the new homepage has complicated the use of alternate domain names used to access the site. I intend to have the site where the alternate domains will work with all the new features when I am done, but there is at least one known issue, at this time. If you visit the site from an alternate URL, like aritah.com, and attempt to log in on the main page, the login will not occur and you will just loop back to the main page. What you need to do is to go to {place alternate domain name here, like aritah.com}/forums (Which is the location of the forums, and log in there. Once you have done so, you will show as logged in everywhere, including on the homepage. There may still be some scattered hard-coded links that will take you back into glocktalk.com, so watch for them. I will clean them out, when I get a chance. If you discover one, there are a variety of different ways to navigate the site. Choose another one. The new forumjump droop-down list, in the bottom-left of the navbar, will work with alternate domain names.

Anyway, I am going to continue to work on things and will post another update soon. Eric
