Christmas Pictures, Profiles & Website Traffic

Merry Christmas Friends!

I thought it would be fun to share Christmas pictures of our kiddos.  I’ll start.

And while we’re on the subject of pictures, I thought I would take a minute to talk about profiles, signatures and photos.

The way the group photo gallery works is, any pictures you upload will show up in your profile AND in the public Photo Gallery.  It doesn’t matter where you upload it from; you can do it from either place.  So you have your own personal photo gallery in your profile and then all your pictures show up in the public gallery too.

Also, I’ve finally been given the “No Can Do!” on the signature functionality.  I guess it just can’t be done with our current configuration.  So the second best option is to show your “About Me” blurb as a hovercard anywhere your name and picture appears on the site.  Have you noticed the hovercards?  If you hover over yourself, a card should pop-up.  Right now it shows your username, the last time you were active and a link to view your profile.  But I’ve been told we can easily update it to actually put your “About Me” information in the hovercard itself.  I thought that would be fun.  So we’re working on that.  If you don’t have an “About Me” blurb yet, you can add one in your profile.

And lastly, even though it seems the site has been quiet recently, we have almost 500 new visitors a month.  And some spend a good long time reading page after page.  Yeah!  We’ve had quite a few new members too, but they’re all still “lurking”.  Hi lurkers!  🙂  That’s kind of a creepy term.  We should really call it something more friendly.

Well, that’s all for now.  Hope you are all enjoying the holiday festivities; I know we are!

  • It’s been quiet on the BBC board too, really. And I’ve enjoyed the conversations we’re having, just a busy time of year.

    I love the idea of Christmas pictures, though I don’t have any to share. At least not yet. It is still Advent, which we take pretty seriously. 😉 And also, I am terrible about taking pictures…

    Good to know about the “About me”. I’ll have to give it a look!

  • I’m still here! Just crazy busy, as we will are. I am still bouncing around ideas for articles I want to post. Thinking…thinking…
