Will look at it over this weekend. I had done some password security which might be messing with things.

Yes, the site didn't allow me before changing my password.

Should be fixed.

Also, now we can pull selected posts onto the front page directly. I chose Sunil Yajman's post as it was made a sticky but we can do the same with pretty much any post. Let me know if other posts can/should be posted to front page.

Also, will look into reducing the amount of text, so basically share only a few sentences and then link back to forum for those posts.

Once that is done, will give the mods permission to add those articles to front page. Apologies as this will take a while and will continue to look at it during my spare time.

Thanks all and please keep the feedback coming and sorry for making you the beta testers :D

Would appreciate some feedback on the following please.
  • 1. Which content to put on the main page similar to the article I just posted up from the sticky
    2. What do you think of the overall layout? What more/less should I do on that page i.e. colour font size etc?
    3. Are there other "content authors" who would like to create content? Please raise your hand here
    4. If anyone has a good logo idea let me know as well :D
Finally moderators, can I please ask you to be editors to that front page?

Thanks,

Dhruv

Sure Dhruv.
For starter, we can add Jay's Covid-19 Daily number update on the front page.

Interestingly, I was having this problem before the update. It has happened after too, but much less frequently. What worked for me was to clear the cache. It helped the annoying login every time issue. If you’re on the mobile, just shutting it off hard power down might help. Try it. Who knows. It might work for you too.

It is weird. The frequency of asking for logins has reduced from a couple of days ago, but it still seems to ask every now and then, while it never did before... Jay

Made another couple of tweaks. Hope that fixes it.
