Hi folks, welcome to the new Ojai Post! I’ll have some more guidance and overview coming soon, plus I have to distribute the author logins, but in the meantime, wanted to give you a place to chat. – Tyler

Testing the comments here. Whoo hoo! To get your photo next to your comment, go to gravatar.com and assign an image to the same email you use here on the comments thread.

Surely the future is here now!

OK, seeing if threaded comments are working.

Fantastic – we can now have conversations on single threads, so that you don’t have to reply to “Anonymous #12″.

Hi Suza – thanks for testing that. I see we still have to point the old archives to the new ones.

you’re good to go, mk – should take a bit to propagate everywhere you’re supposed to see it.

Ty- do you think this will cut down on the number of spams we get each day?
Accordingly, if it does not, would you consider using one of those “enter the scrambled words/letters” before posting?

There are a number of anti-spam features built in. Initially, some spam will get through, and some comments will get accidently flagged as spam, but it should settle down. Yes, a “captcha” is a definite option.

Suffice it to say that the spam on the old site was killing me and the site, and its something that the new platform is in a much better place to address.

Looks great Tyler. Good work.

Stranger in a strange land, but getting used to it…
Just wondering when the Guest Editorial I posted around the time that the old site and new site converged, will show up…

Thanks!

It won’t Suza – we’re done importing content from the old site. You’ll have to repost when I send you your site access.

Suza May 28, 2010 at 3:15 pm

OK, thanks, good to know.
I eagerly await the new secret code.

Good work team, after all those months of work and effort. Thank you for the time you’ve spent to make this a great community resource.

Tyler, I keep noticing the ever-changing, beautiful background images on the Ojai Post headline (upper left). That is really an uplifting, classy touch!
