Email digests can be selected at the bottom of each Topic or on the My Topics page. You'll receive the new postings in the selected Topics by email rather than by logging in. Not just a notification.

As for logging out, you had to close the browser with Cafe Utne (one of previous platforms). Now, you can just use the Log out on the top right of every page.

excuse me. What happened to archives and file store – like releases etc?

Not sure what you mean with archives. Archived topics are all with us.

Not sure what you mean with file store either. The Resources page hosted by an inactive member? If so, we never had any releases on there, just some sample budgets and proposals that are pretty much out of date now. As soon as our previous platform allowed us to post attachments, there was no need for separate hosting any more. You're the first one to miss these files.

Just b/c we haven't posted like David, doesn't mean there aren't others who miss them as well. It's nice to have resources in one fixed place. But I suppose the fix is to do a search on "release forms" or "releases" and create a tag if some smart soul hasn't done so already.

Exactly. :-)

I love the customizing abilities of the new D-Word format, but, and I may be the lone moron who has this problem, I have accidentally hid topics probably ten times while trying to go back to topics list. I've noticed and fixed it immediately about 9 of those times, but at least once, I didn't realize for like a week that I was missing a topic. I guess I'm not even sure why someone would hide topics in the first place. Maybe put the option in a different place where I don't accidentally click on it. Of course, if I'm the only one, than... well, don't worry about it, I just need to work on my mouse skills.

It has happened to others, too. I think we just need a bigger space between the two links.

i'm an oldtimer still adjusting to the new interface...
is there a way to page thru topic like before? ie, i start at the top and then just keep clicking thru all postings in all topics until i'm done?

Yes, Sarah, the "Read xx new postings..." link at the top left of the list of Topics will take you on a cruise through all Topics. To get from one to the next, click on "Read next Topic with new postings..." at the bottom of all Topic pages.
Is that what you meant?

Ben beat me to it, Sarah. It's the same method of navigating new posts as it used to be, just in a different place.

Ben, why are you Ashamed?
