Your username and password for these discussion forums are unique to the forums. Your forum login information is separate from your My Adventure Cycling login information, and your login info for the Cyclosource online store. You will need to create a separate login for each of these. However, to make things a bit easier, you can use the same email and password for all three accounts. Also, please note that your login information for the forums is not connected to your Adventure Cycling membership number. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
We have blocked registrations from several countries because of the large quantities of spam that originate there. If the forum denies your legitimate registration, please ask our administrator for an exception. firstname.lastname@example.org will need your IP address, which you can find at many web sites, including http://whatismyipaddress.com.
This section allows you to view all posts made by this member. Note that you can only see posts made in areas you currently have access to.
By upgrading without regard to the links that people have made to the old discussion forums you have broken every single existing link on the internet. This means that all the great advice that people have bookmarked or emailed or saved no longer work. In addition, you have provided no way for someone to find those threads if they have the old links.
This means that unless someone is willing to go through all the posts page by page, all the previous information here is virtually unusable. I had 17 posts bookmarked and now I can't find any of them. The search function dumps out lots of word hits but I would have to spend hours trying to find the posts I had saved just to relink to them.
This stunning lack of oversight makes me wonder what else is going wrong at ACA.
Does this mean a real NNTP newsreader, John? I would love to read with Outlook Express, leaving all the HTTP eye candy behind. Do we have an NNTP server now? Or should I get an add-in for OE that converts RSS to NNTP?I think that you will need the add-in for OE that converts the RSS to NNTP. I tested the RSS feed as a live bookmark in Firefox as well as in a program called BlogBridge that I have used in the past to read newsgroup messages and rss feeds and it worked well but I was not able to get OE to recognize the rss feed. If you have some success converting the feed to use in OE let me know.
It seems to be exactly the same as the previous forum. How is it any different? The light blue text is slightly harder to read and it takes a little longer to log on to post a message.The content is the same as the old forum as it was all converted over to run in the new software. The old software often locked up and cause errors as well as slowed down the entire adventure cycling website. The old forum software was nine years old and no longer developed and impossible to get support for. The search feature rarely worked and we received a lot of complaints about the forum in general.
Answer my own ? How do i post Image -Image>Additional Options>Attach>Hi Jim,
How do you like the new forum?Hi Fred,
I like it! Fast and does not stall. John Sieber, was it you who chose and installed the SMF software? Good going. I expect it saves you a deal of grief.
Members: this forum has many more options and features than we are used to. If it seems bewildering, give yourself a couple of days to get familiar with navigating it.
