New domain, new sever
As you might have seen the site has changed domains and web servers. If you see any bugs, please let me know here.
Forum registation fixed
There was a problem blocking the email confirmation... it is working now.
Re: Forum registation fixed
yes it works
Another server move
After 12 years with Rackspace, I have moved the server that host this site. Please let me know if you see any problems.
Re: Another server move
Clearly there were some problems with the Newsletter getting through. I think I have fixed the issues. Please let me know if you are still not receiving your newsletter.
Due to receiving an IP address with a poor reputation, I have started sending the email newsletters via a 3rd party mail house. Please let me know if you are still having issues getting the newsletters.
Many of you will have noticed that the site looks a little bit different. I have updated the site to work better with smaller screen sizes. If you are having any issues with the site, please reply to this post, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Can anybody recommend a good childminder in the local area please? I'm going back to university in September and looking for care for my 9 month old daughter (she will be 9 months in Sept). Ideally looking for full-time/term time care.
Any help/recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
New Newsletter Format
I have updated the newsletter to embed all the images into the email, so allow it to more easily get by people's spam filters.
Please let me know if you suddenly stopped receiving the newsletter, or it isn't working in some way. If you could also let me know what email client and os you use, that would be great!
p.s. if you add email@example.com to your address book, that will also make sure it gets past most spam filters.
Latest Forum Posts Now on the Homepage
After being asking this for about two years, I finally did the work to get the last five forum posts on the homepage. Hopefully this will drive a bit more traffic.
What else would you like to see?
I have been asked most about adding:
Any other suggestions - reply to this post?
Re: Latest Forum Posts Now on the Homepage
Is it possible to add the function 'watch this thread' so that you are alerted by email to activity on a forum post?
Not sure anyone has noticed, but there were a few spam messages on these forums over the past few days. Some spammer got in and posted a few comments... really just links to other sites.
I think I have closed a few more loopholes, but if you ever see anything, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Possible improvements to "Classifieds" forum
It would be useful perhaps if the following was possible on the Classifieds forum:
1) Ability to delete one's own classified after it has served its purpose (the "found mobile phone" thread I recently ran is now irrelevant, for example).
2) Possible enhancement to (1), the ability to set an option expiry date at the outset after which the ad would delete itself automatically
3) Maybe display of the number of "views" an advert has had !
Comment on forums
I've put on a new post, following up a post I put on several months ago. I posted my post as a 'reply' because I wanted to link it to the previous post (and responses I've had to that). But this means that it appears way down the page - you have to scroll a while to get there. I doubt anyone will see it.
In most forums, a reply to a subject moves it to the top of the page. I think it would be a good idea if you did that.
Re: Comment on forums
I agree with you, of course I designed the database wrong to do this easily, so it will take some work to change... but I am working on it.

Tom, I think I got it... can you let me know if it looks right for you?
