    New Format

    I'll admit I haven't had the time to play on the new format of this site. I have read that many are unhappy with it and have left the site.
    I want to THANK whoever posted about going to the ARCHIVES to read the board. It works so well for me and feels like the old format

    That is how I get around too. I felt it was worth my time to learn the new format. So happy I did!

    It is still difficult to find different things but I am learning and am glad I stayed.

    I only have one problem with the new site. I can't always post my replies. It freezes up and I lose the response. Other than that I like the new site. Luann

    Well, I've yet to figure out where the archives are. Anyone care to share?

    At the very bottom of the page is the Archive section. I don't use as much now since the colors change when I have read a topic.

    Went there and it didn't look very interesting, maybe I need to explore more deeply.
    Thanks.

    I had my adjustment period but I'm so glad I stayed. Still the wonderful feeling of a quilt guild online. I've yet to post a question that I've not gotten FABULOUS and kind thoughtful responses to. I've yet to see anyone laugh at my silly questions nor anyone else's. I've considered this board my greatest quilting find EVER!!! Glad to see you stayed too.

    And now I'm off to the archives to learn more there!!!!

    That happens to me too. I now copy my reply before trying to send it, as about 50% of the time it doesn't work. But otherwise, the new board is fine - I've almost forgotten it was ever any different!
    Now - will this post work?!

    I hit HOME at the top, then hit the topic, then look for the archives, click that and it will take you right to the topic you want in date order, last is first. It is a wonderful tool. Before I found this out, I was really floundering, never left but searched other sites for awhile. This is still the best. Thanks Patrice.

    i just wish it had the envelope feature that we could hover over and see the first few lines of the text before clicking on it. I loved that feature in the main thread lists but archive is definitely easier to use.

    Love the archives too, like the change in color after you have read it. That way I dont miss anything. Want to learn how to post pictures but not very computer savvy, so have'nt tried to yet.

    I have that same problem from time to time. Instead of quick reply, I use go advanced. It works better

    I have learned to use the new format, but even after reading the many postings I still cannot post pictures. It must be true for others too- because there seems to be less pictures now.

    At first, I wanted to throw in the towel, but decided that I would give it a chance. I'm so glad that I decided to work at it and so far I am doing o.k. It took a little time, but things are getting easier.

    You just have togo all the way to the bottom and there it is.

    Just a little bit of poking around and one can love the new format- its just change and we as humans don't like change very much ! its in our nature !LOL
