Note about the archives
Mon, 03-31-2003 - 3:45pm
If you've tried to access our recipe box or any bookmarked posts from former boards I'm sure you've noticed that the links don't work. And unfortunately there is no way to make the website work short of starting from scratch. And the archives are no longer oriented by board number either. If you are looking for something that was posted within the last year you should be able to search by post title, ie. if you are looking for a hashbrown casserole recipe and it was in the title of the post, you should, in theory, be able to find it. But this is only good for the last year. If you are looking for something beyond that, say from board 17 - the only way to find it is to go to archives and scroll through every post. I know it's disheartening and sad that our wonderful web site that Daisy and Anna and so many other people put so much work into doesn't function anymore.

Also just so you know - you cannot search by member name. This is a safety precaution. This means that no one can type in your member name and come up with every post you've ever made.

Please have patience with this. There is nothing that we can do about it.

But as a bonus - our new board will never archive the same way that they did. Any posts since the beginning of the switch can be access and responded you. If you respond to a "buried" post it will come up to the top of the board again. :)
