Peat - great suggestion. And

Peat - great suggestion. And I spent 1/2 hour looking into it.

Verdict: d**ned if I know how Google selected that subset of verbiage as a summary of the page in question.

Hi Gisette, I was wondering

Hi Gisette,

I was wondering if something could be done about the introduction wording which comes up on a search. If I search on 'aerogarden forums' to bring up everything related to AG's, the following appears for this site. It's a little bit of a turn off when you see the words 'no new posts' and 'forum locked' - I would probably skip through onto another site thinking this was another dead end.

Is there anything you can do about this at all?

Perhaps some introduction words explaining what goes on here, aerogardens, hydroponic systems etc.?

Hm. Well, not this week, but maybe sometime I could make the site smarter about jumping to last comments. This latest version of Advanced_Forum does much better in the forums, providing a LastPost jump link. I dunno why that doesn't carry over into Book pages (growlogs) or msgs... Incomplete implementation, it seems.

Probably doesn't make a difference, but in case you'd like to know

----- when getting notices of msgs via email, you still can't be taken to exact msg when clicking on it.  Clicking on a msg update still takes me to the msg heading, not the update itself.

Not terribly important if you don't feel like fooling with it. 

 

Enjoy!

Glad you liked, Judith.

Glad you liked, Judith.

After I posted that "I'm done", I of course noticed I wasn't. Advanced_Forum totally changed their way of displaying the user info on comments, so I scrambled to reformat that, still a little glitchy on the Garland theme, and just now got back to finish retrofitting the Garland theme to have Meebo blocks.

Now hopefully I'm done messing with things. Until I notice something else I broke.

I think I'm done screwing up

I think I'm done screwing up the site for the afternoon.  Changes:

  • Picasa Lightboxer now auto-inserts pictures when you click on them (no need to Ctrl-V into Source view).
  • Added Meebo chat rooms yesterday, but didn't realize you needed to visit My Account | Edit tab to enable them. (Pretty squirrely, actually - they may already be checked on, but you need to Save your non-changes to that page for them to show up. Oh, well.)
  • Updated Drupal core (4 releases worth of security updates, etc.)
  • Updated modules for google ads, custom content, forums, and voting. (Y'all did notice you can rate posts / threads with stars? Yeah, well, nobody does. )

Anyway, that's all I planned to do. Yelp if anything's messed up.

BTW, as administrator (Gisette aot Ginger) I never see Google Ads. (It's a major no-no for me to accidentally click on them.) So please give me a heads-up if they're doing anything really weird - I won't notice otherwise.

YAY! At long, long last, I

YAY! At long, long last, I finally got my lightboxer to directly insert the lightbox into the editor. So you skip the switch-to-Source-view-and-Ctrl-V-to-paste parts - just place cursor in editor where you want a picture to go, then click a picture on the Picasa Lightboxer widget. It does the pasting itself.

FWIW, there is a recipe section in the Aerogarden Lore book (left menu). It's been there a long time, I just forgot to put it on the menu. (Someone asked today whether we had one.) Only my recipes yet, but all welcome.
