Greetings and Salutations -

I've made the change to our BellaOnline forums so that it now just has a single sidebar - on the right. This makes it much easier to use both on desktops and on mobile devices. Let me know if you have any questions about the forums!

I'm caught up with all the editor photo updates and graphic server space requests that I know about. If you need your editor photo updated to a new 400x400 one, or if you need logon information to our graphic server for adding graphics to your articles, please let me know. I'm happy to help.

I will next be working on tweaking the forum code to have our customizations in it. These do things like update the "latest forum posts" widget in your articles. The change will also turn off the emailing of updates when forum posts are made. I know a few of you like those emails, but in the brief time they've been turned on we've already been banned by a few mail servers for "sending spam". So while some of us find the emails useful, mail companies find them spammy. And once we are on a spam list we can't send those servers newsletters or anything else. So it's better not to get down that rabbit hole.

Statistics are showing our mobile users are now using our site more often and staying on for longer, so that's great news. Our layout changes mean our site is much more usable for those who are on phones and tablets. And it's easier for desktop users, too, so it's a win-win.

Ask with any questions, and I'll let you know when the forum changes are complete!

Lisa Shea, owner
