As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Number of links per post

    I understand that we can post as many links to internal posts as we need to...no limit (well within reason, I suppose. ) However, the software doesn't 'see' the difference between a link to a post and an external link. I also understand that there is a way to get around that. Does anybody remember what it is?

    Thanks.

    No problem....if you post a lot of links to CARM posts or articles, it will go someplace where the mods will see it, and have to approve it. Once the post is approved, the post will go right back to where you had it originally. That is what happened to me, once, when I had 7 links to different posts on CARM in one post. The post disappeared, then reappeared--voila!-- 2 days later, approved. Diane told me this, when I wrote to her about it, years ago.

    Sometimes the system will allow us to post three CARM links. But after that, one pushes one's luck. Unfortunately, the system doesn't always seem to work to filter out that wretched spam.

        I'm sorry, there is no such "message to all users' in red on the left side of the above link. Rule 29 is rather clear on the number of links allowed per post, and while it does warn that the software might 'see' the extra links and block the message, it is also very clear that one can, according to the rules, link to any number of CARM articles or forum posts.

        I know that we have run into this before. I don't remember what was said about it, but there is, evidently, a work around. That is, a specific way of including the url's so that the software won't see them, but since they are internal, clicking on them will take you 'there' anyway.

        Something about not including the "https://"???? Or something like that. I was hoping that someone remembered what it was.

            Thank you. I am very familiar with the forum rules. Extremely familiar with them. Almost memorized familiar with them. I run afoul of them far too frequently.

            there is nothing on either the super member subscription page OR the rules page that answers my specific question, about how to alter the url so that the software won't 'see' and block them when they are aimed at CARM forum posts. I DO remember a conversation about just that a couple (perhaps three or four? I forget...) months ago, and was hoping that someone else also remembered it. Thank you for your efforts. though.

              You're welcome . Sorry I couldn't help. I searched yesterday for something and could not find it also. There are still things I don't know how to do on this site. .. You have a great week.

                Did you try just taking out the htttp? or the dotcom? OR substitute dotcom for the .com.

                  I'll try that and see if that works. It DOES strike a memory chord, at that. Here's hoping that when I try it I don't foul things up too badly!
