Please let us know what you think below!
It's been many years since we've had an update, and as many of you will have noticed, a technology update was very due. Our new and improved site has been designed and chosen to be mobile-friendly, easy to navigate and offer more contact points, while fixing up the nasty bugs we’ve had in recent months.
We have a couple of new functions!
By mentioning (or tagging) someone’s name in a post, you will send them a notification to bring their attention to a thread. Simply write ‘@’ and start typing their username, and it will pop up from a drop-down list. For example, I can mention one of our facilitators flipper, @flipper (facilitator), and this will send them a notification that they’ve been mentioned here. Note that the list may take a moment to appear.
- Liking posts
Sometimes we want to show support for a post but may not have something particular to respond to it. Pressing the red thumbs up beside a post will show support for the post. The author of the post will receive a notification that you have liked their post.
You can now navigate simply by using the drop-down menu on your screen’s top left, called “Quick links”. Here you will find links to your own posts, new forum posts, posts you haven’t read yet, unanswered topics as well as active topics. There’s also access to the search tool, the members list and the list of members of our team there.
- Notification centre
On your screen’s right, you’ll find our new notification centre. This will make it fast and easy to know when someone has replied to your post, mentioned you in a thread, or liked your post.
If you have any questions, issues or concerns please post them below.
We truely hope you enjoy our new look! :)
