Big Changes Part 2

So far so good in regards to the move to the new commenting system. I had a bit of a problem with my archives but managed to fix it. The only real annoyances now are:

  • Old comments will not appear in the new commenting system. So although you’ll be able to see older comments on the actual blog pages, they won’t show up in the forums. Any new topics will be fine, of course, but it would have been neat to see the entire Purpose Driven Life discussion moved to the forum, for example.
  • Archives topics will only have an entry created in the forum the first time someone clicks on them. That means there will be strange topics popping up from time-to-time on the forums…unless I take the time to go through day-by-day and click on each one. Maybe that’s a project for tomorrow!

Other than those small annoyances I’m quite happy with the forums. I am hoping a bunch of people sign up and begin to use them so we can get some good discussions happening. I am excited at the prospect of having people be able to begin their own topics in the forum so those readers who do not have their own blogs have an opportunity to speak out!

In The Storied Life, veteran author Jared C. Wilson…
