Hi Ivar.
It's a good looking version of the website, but I think it'll take a little while to find our way around it.

For example, I don't seem able to find the Calendar.
Please can you tell me where to find it?
Thanks.

Found the Calendar but note no leaving dates for 2018 ??

Hi Ivar,

I really like the new look of the site. It looks cleaner and works well on my devices. That said, did the Special Topics forums disappear? If I’ve gotten the name wrong, I’m thinking of where the various religion-related topics (e.g. Catholic or Ecumenical) were located.

Thank you.

Why not have the "Donating Member" flag under each avatar actually link to a page on why and how to donate?
I found another place to put a donation button without appearing too greedy. When the list of people who like a post is clicked to get a full list a page comes up with the title "Members who liked message #42". Underneath that add "Like the forum? Donate."

One bit of very positive feedback is that the annoying floating balloons announcing your alerts that were coming up on the left-hand side of the screen after logging in are GONE! Alleluia!!

(Opinion alert...:) I may be in the minority, but I really dislike the new emojis as compared with the ones we had. That's just a strong preference - otherwise, I really like the cleaner look of this new version, and find things work as they should, once I find them.

Kudos, Ivar...doing the design and juggling life with an infant at the same time. That's no small feat, requiring both focused concentration and flexible responsiveness!

JeezezMary&Jozeph,

I feel like I ended up in the old pensioners corner of the public Library where all the screens are in MagnaPrint.

- At least the colours are very bright and there´s hi graph viz.
Would it be an idea if you could choose your own font size yourself, on a button somewhere at the top of the page !??

Thank you Tia Valeira......and Ivar for your replies ....I did try this as suggested but no go!!
It might be my iPad ..it's not overly important for me so not to worry
As suggested by a member.... why not have the 100 letter info under the avatar ....and also where that person comes from .....
It's actually one of the questions I ask when speaking to people on the Camino ...always makes for an interesting chat
Best wishes
I miss that too. Nice to see where people come from. Previous Camino’s, post count etc. it helps in replying to know if the person is a newbie or an old hand. Now we all look the same. Unless you click on the member to check....

I too have realised that Ivar's online store has vanished when I am logged in. The only way to find it at present is to log out, call up 2 forum pages so that the '2018 guides' show, log in on one of them and then go to the other page don't refresh it but click on the '2018 guides are out'. Then you can reach the store.

A work around for now which I am sure @ivar will fix. It might be because it is treated as an advert and disappears for donating members

You can do as I and others with longer lists did, put your Caminos in your signature.
Sure, but we still don't know where people are from. Just makes things a bit less friendly in my mind. We can't see anything about the member. Posts will need to be qualified all the time, Hi I'm from, never walked, or I'm from.........and have walked every year for the last 50......

But that's just me. ;);)

Always was a bit of a luddite!

Good to see the Caminos future/walked back. How many characters are we allowed please Ivar?

Could a link to your online shop go next to the Calendar in the top bar (or similar) as there is no link at present once logged in. My work around is at post #118 :)

Thanks again for all your hard work

Hi Ivar... I have been using the App on my IPad and while it used to work flawlessly, it has bugs now. Please see the attached screen shots for examples

The web version is fantastic!

Hi there,

It seems you are opening the old app that has been discontinued, and then open the site from within the app. Try to open Safari on the iPad and visit the site there... hope that works! :)

Does anyone else miss this bit of information?

Thank you, Sailor. All good. I’ve found it and made my purchase.
However, looking for the shop or store (depending on which side of the ditch you are on) by going to Ivar’s posts is a bit convoluted. Is there an easy way to find it?

Amiga mia, Ivar needs to add the link to the store (shop) to the front page.

Using a computer, on the right side of the screen you can see "Forum Rules" and right above it you see "How to: Donate to the forum . . . When we go to donate to the forum option, we see the link to the Camino Forum Store, and we get to the store using that link.

But again, way too many moving parts to get there, the best course of action is to add the link to the store on the front page. Hopefully, that option is coming soon, the forum is looking good, but remains work in progress in a couple of areas.

Buena suerte, y que la luz de Dios alumbre su camino.

p.s. I have the link to the store as part of my bookmarks.

This may have been answered previously, I may have missed it.

I deleted the app on my iphone as it was asking me to log in again each time I looked at it. After downloading it again from the App Store it misbehaves. The message that pops up is:

This App is Disabled
Please contact the community webmaster to re-enable it.

All good on the computer, just working it all out.

My 'work around' is at post #118. Then I realised I need to bookmark the shop on my PC. Presume this would work on any device until @ivar restores a link for when we are logged in.

Thank you for all your feedback! I have read it all, but do not have time to reply to everyone... :-(

It also feels like I am coming down with the flue (or something similar), so I think I will just call it a weekend now. The forum feels like it has found its place, although there are always tweaks and changes to be done. More on that Monday.

Hi Ivar.
Hope you're feeling better.

Re the Calendar :
A whole lot of posts seem to missing, including my own in May 2018.
There also seem to be things duplicated too.
Some months are blank, whereas they used to have posts.

I'm using Firefox browser on my PC.
I don't think that's the problem though as everything else on the site seems to work fine since the upgrade.

Another glitch to be sorted I guess.
And it seems you're the man for the job!

Good luck.
