You did it right Deb.  By placing the dates as 5-10-2007 the calendar will treat your anniversary as a "new" event and will alert us as we get closer.  You can also post a calendar event to the actual death date.  This way you would have both covered.  Does that make sense?

This is gonna be very sweet for us to use, won't miss anyones dates thats for sure once we get them on the calendar.


That's just what I was thinking Deb.  I really like the Calendar.  I hope we can keep it from getting spammed.

Good job!  Can you see how this would be great for anniversary dates?  We could look at the calendar for the month and be able to see all of the anniversaries for that month and have a link to the post about that particular death.  I had been envisioning a way to create this for the other board but could never find a way.  This one far surpasses what I had been hoping to do.  There is even a listing of the "events" in the forum directory.  I love it.  It's pretty easy to use too don't you think?

If you look at the buttons across the top of the board you will see home, help, search, profile calendar, and logout.  Try clicking on calendar.  The month of December will pop up.  Notice December 15th. It is a link to a post I wrote to show how you can put up your anniversary date on the calendar.  I have changed the permissions so any registered member can post an event on the calendar.  I think this could be a very helpful feature and I hope some of you will experiment with it.  Just click on calendar and you will see the "post event" button near the bottom.  Just click that and you will go to a page that is very similar to posting a regular message except it has a place to put in the date.  You can use the original death date but please also use the next anniversary date coming up in order to have it listed on the present calendar.  For example, if someone I loved died on march 14th 2002 I could post an event for march 14th 2002 but it would not show up in this years calendar.  I would need to post an event for march 14th 2007 and that way my next anniversary would be listed.  Make sense?

Give it a try and see what  happens.

This is an example post to show you how you can post an event in the calendar and it will be listed there and also provide a hyperlink back to the post you made where you originally posted the event.  This can easily be used to mark anniversary dates and just by viewing the calendar you will be able to see who has anniversaries coming up.

Give it a try and see  how it works.

Hi Stella  -  My apologies for the abrupt changes.  It was sadly unavoidable.  STeve thinks that there was a security hole in the WEBBBS software that allowed the spammers to plant directories on the old site and then place spam web pages within those directories.  The web host saw that and decided the site was a security risk and deleted all files.  It took me an agonizing amount of time to find a new web host and get things running to the point where I could get a new board up and running. 

Notice that at the top of your page you will see some icons across the top.  One of those says "help."  If you click that one I think you may find some answers to basic questions.  We are all learning this one from the beginning so please feel free to ask any and all questions and those that you can't figure out on your own we can figure out together. 

Thanks for your patience with this and my apologies for how things have worked out.  Perhaps we can find a way to turn it into something that is helpful.  What I see of this board so far I do like.

Penny - The sad news is that the posts were all deleted.  We used the archives on the site as a means to keep backups of the messages and the web host deleted them all.  I'm sorry.  I wish it were different but it is not.  Maybe someone has copies of the posts that they saved?  Maybe you can improve on them and write them again!

I was miserable for the two days it was down and doing everything I could to get things back up and running. I was thinking about you all.  I'm so glad to see folks checking back in.

Have you seen that you can put pictures in your signature?  It's pretty easy.  I wrote a little post about it on the main board.

My apologies for the recent down time.  I am glad you have found your way here.  This board is brand new and will have to serve us for the time being until we get settled in a bit.  I am not familiar with this software either so we will all be learning together!
