What is a CMS?

A content management system (CMS) is a software tool that lets users add, publish, edit, or remove content from a website, using a web browser on a smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer.

(NOTE: The old forums are going to be archived so we are asking members to follow the login instructions and migrate to this new platform. This new platform enables ALL content to be integrated into the CMS which has hundreds of add-ons coming)

Our focus for the recording.org community is to create a Facebook type platform (CMS). This new platform will give our members the ability to use and manage their content. We finally built it!

Mac, High Sierra, Brave browser, reloaded page several times...

Still can't find it, sorry. I see "Recent comments", but that's not a link.

Yes, I always read fora via a link that serves me the recent unread posts. The ones I don't read get cleared by using "mark forums read" or something likewise.

I found the "Recent Content" link that takes me to a listing of posts. However, it would be nice to be able to have another link that takes you to the "New" content directly, as we had in the past.

I am liking the clean new look and appreciate all of the effort of making the site inviting and user friendly.

Cheers

When i go thru the password reset process, it keeps saying my old password is incorrect. I have been unable to reset my password. I used the "one time login" to make this post.

It also appears the old forum id currently unacessable.

New site is pretty different, gonna take some time to get used to it.

 If you were able to post this kyle, that means you did it correctly and you are logged in! Welcome aboard!

The forum is pretty basic but how it connects to the CMS is where it opens up to all sorts of modules. .

Just a thought, I keep getting back to the old forum by accident with old links etc. Could you change the theme of the old one to maybe pink or red so people landing there via google or old links might notice they’re still posting in the old one. I see new posts there that aren’t here?

Good idea. I'm actually locked out of the old forum! I'm waiting for a coder to help with final rewrites so everything points to the new CMS. Drupal (the software of our CMS) is extremely secure and doesn't like software outside of the root running with it. So its been a hacking to get both old forum and this to run at the same time. I'm been running on 4 hours sleep a night for weeks.

Back to your suggestion... I'll likely have to turn off the old forum. I was hoping we could keep them both going to allow us all to have time to move over here but that appears to be turning into a coding nightmare.

I anticipated this to go way smoother than it has but= I couldn't even test this until it was actually live running two forums on the same server. We're kind of blazing a new trail here. I'll change the colours though, thats a great idea once I can get back in there.

I feel for you. I'm locked into one product and I cannot update it at all now as all my credentials won't work in the new version, but I need the old version to change them,  and that uninstalled when the new version updated - I know how frustrating it is. What a pain!  P
