    Malware detected

    The last two days when I've been on the digest my Avast anti-virus has detected malware. I have not been signed in, so maybe thats creating more ads. Is it better to always sign in to read the daily digest?
    Any other suggestions?

    I am also getting that message when I click on the board. What's up? It only happens when I get on the board.

    the report is annoying but it is an error.

    skip the emails and use the direct route.

    The first and most important thing to remember is that the emails are not the board.
    They are only a link to a smattering of thread links.
    They are rarely the newest threads and barely scratch the surface of all that's available here.

    If you know you want to come to the board often, the emails are a waste of time.
    they slow you down.
    why wait for an email?

    You never need those emails to connect to the board.
    Just come straight to http://www.quiltingboard.com

    If you like starting with the sample list of links, go to the Resources tab.
    Make sure to keep exploring, though, so you don't miss any of the good stuff. :-) The Archive link leads to lists of threads in reverse order - newest first.
    The Home tab is the starting point to get to everything.

    You can add it to your browser favorites/bookmarks, put a shortcut on your desktop, or (if you are a total QB junkie like me) you can make it your home page.

    Try using the direct route.
    You might find you like it better. :-)

    Check your junk/spam folder.

    Even though you have asked to receive the emails, many services treat them like junk anyway.
    They disable the links or send them straight to spam/junk.
    They sometimes don’t make it through to user inboxes – not even to the junk folders.

    Also, if you have not already added the QB to your email’s safe senders list, please do:

    Please take the following steps to add a contact to your safe senders list:
    1. Open your email account (example: AOL, Gmail, Yahoo! or Outlook).
    2. Locate your “address book” or “contacts”.
    3. Add patricej@quiltingboard.com, quilting@lifestyle.ibemail.com, and info@quiltingboard.com to your address book or list of contacts.
    4. Save your changes.

    If your email program provides for it, also add patricej@quiltingboard.com, @lifestyle.ibemail.com and @quiltingboard.com to your list of safe senders (or the equivalent).
    I Quilt, I Nap, I Quilt Some More ... Aaaaah, The Good Life!

    I also have an eddres you can use if you need to contact me with questions or suggestions that relate to our community: patricej@quiltingboard.com

    Very nice, but I love my daily email. It is especially fun to see one of my posts there!

    It isn't just on the board. I get it when I'm on any other site. Happens on Facebook also. Usually, Avast has already taken care of it. Doesn't hurt to run a scan on it though. I had problems on one of the other sites I use in my business contacted the tech support and they took care of it.

    Thanks Patrice.

    My favorite way to get to everything is by clicking on "ARCHIVE" at the very bottom. You can access it from every page!
