The FB/Twitter thing below the topics works fine...only thing is I will never use it because even though I have half on you on my friend's list I wanna "protect" my identity... http://www.jamaicans.com/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif

I am trying to get to view topics older than 3 months in the pet forum, wanting to bring back a topic to the top...

Is there a glitch or are all posts older than 3 months gone? http://www.jamaicans.com/forums/images/smilies/70456-eyebrows.gif

Noticed in parenting that when select all dates, the count of pages is 13 but when selecting a page (eg page 3 or 4) there is no data found.

May be related to Nanooks question. The data may be there but not displayed?

can the board opt out of ONGR? it seems to be making a lot of jcans.com's own forums redundant. judging by the ognr newsfeed, there's duplication of jamaican news forum, international news forum and bashment central (entertainment news).

i may be in the minority here but i think the OGNR thing is deadening the board.

Yes, this is what I was trying to say. I see 22 pages, but can only get to the 3rd page and that is only 1/2 page.

This. OGNR is a serious pain. Especially when browsing the forums by topics on a phone browser!


I just leave because of all the time that takes.

I'm having a problem getting into anything past page 1 of the trip report archives....when I go to page two &amp; change &quot;from all dates&quot; at the bottom, it does nothing....actually I've done that on page one but when it takes me to page 2 there is nothing there!

Still can't get to the archives, even in the regular trip report forum....when I plug in &quot;show from all dates&quot; &amp; &quot;change&quot;, the front page changes &amp; shows a large selection of numbered pages but this is what I get when I select page 2:

I had this same problem in Ackee &amp; Saltfish this past weekend... I had to find the post I was looking for by clicking on the person's profile and then show the users post...

yesterday was so beautiful. threads started and continued by boardites, a return to the feel of seeing clearly what was on people's minds, the issues of the day that were sparking interest and conversation.

then today, and the return with a vengeance of that spam called breaking news. http://www.jamaicans.com/forums/images/smilies/mad.gif http://www.jamaicans.com/forums/images/smilies/mad.gif

Still trying to fix the archive issue.

Sorry to get to so late on this but had some other issues pending.

Arching/Viewing old Post - The issue with the archive display is a new personal setting. At the bottom of the page you can set how far back you want to view posts by setting your &quot;Display Options&quot;. I looked in our control panel for a setting for all the forums and all users but it is not there.

Jamaicans.com mailbox - The emails serve is provide by a company call everyone.net. Please contact them at [email protected] with your relevant information. I seems they upgraded but I am not having issues.

Xavier... on your announcement re Best of Jamaica -Toronto needs votes - the reply and quote links are there (but replies not allowed ) likely showing because it is not locked...

I can't post from work on either FF or IE.

- On FF none of the buttons work, so when I type a post and click submit, nothing happens
- On IE I get logged out almost immediately after logging on.

On another note, could you add support for Tapatalk, TouchBB, or similar app for iPhone &amp; smartphone idling please. Thanks!

That is so weird. Can you send me the version of the browsers you are using. Do you get an error message when you submit? Can you take a screen shot of it.

Hi X - tried to access the 'calendar' to add an event...took me to THIS PAGE as per norm... (http://www.jamaicans.com/calendar/)


BUT.... the header said (or read) 'REDIRECT'

and below it indicated that 'you do not have permission to access this document'



( added note - used 'calendar' link from the header above forum listings as per choices indicated below)

forums find old friends <span style="font-weight: bold">calendar </span>jamaican news classifieds shopping advertise




When I used the link from the secondary list (below) the link took me to the actual calendar...

Hi Xavier,

Here are the versions of browsers I use.

When posting with FF, I don't get an error message, just nothing at all happens. http://www.jamaicans.com/forums/images/smilies/frown.gif
