It's supposed to be a snapshot of the site for those that go directly to freesangha.com. We haven't gotten around to using it in an efficient way, but there is a featured article, the latest posts and admin and mod info there. I always use it to check for new posts. :)

Great job so far. :)

I've just posted a Youtube link and it didn't automatically embed (if that's the term).  No big deal but just to note when the bigger jobs are done and dusted.

What's the portal for?

The portal has enabled me to travel along the space time continuum and discover past lives.  Unfortunately, I trod on a dung beetle in around 4,000 BC which has resulted in the complete absence of inherent existence of everything except my mind.

An incredibly useful device! ;)

By the way, some parts of the forum are not showing up, like the Games and Humor section for example. Have they been discontinued?

As WB and meez know, I wasn't able to view FS at all yesterday.  I could log in, but the page wouldn't load, regardless of browser.  I tried clearly my cache and cookies, and used a couple of computers, but that didn't work either.

However, it is working again now.  I think someone tinkered with the forum's theme so that is missing, but everything else is working as far as I can tell so far.

The problem Yeshe describes was due to that the embedding modification was not installed yet, and the missing subforums and problems to login was due to that our custom template is not compatible with the new forum software version. I've installed the mod and reset all themes os hopefully these problems should be solved now.

Yeshe was describing inter-dimensional time travel. 

Now that the embedding modification is in place, you mean -- woo-hoo! -- we log on and are automatically transported across the multi-verse?

I knew this site had potential.

Yes, the chat seems to have taken a timeout. The chat seems to be working towards the server properly, but for some reason the info doesn't show in the windows. I've posted a support request at the SMF forums as I've tried their default fixes without success.

I just enabled "pretty URLs", meaning that an URL that before looked like www.freesangha.com/forums/index.php?topic=2598 now looks like http://www.freesangha.com/forums/news-and-announcements/freesangha-forum-upgrade. The point of this is to make URLs more descriptive and search engines will like us a lot more. I remember trying to enable this when we started the forum also, but then it lead to some subforums not working so we had to disable it.

Now it seems to be working fine, but let me know if you have any problems.
