I'll have to figure all this out at a later time. I'm back at work right now after jury duty, on which I spent four days on a trial. I was even the jury foreman! (First time on three juries.)
So far without doing a lot of research.
What's a "quickpress"?
What's "get shortlink"?
"Categories" must be like "tags." I already had a very seriously cross indexed blog archive. Do I have to do this all over again manually?
My whole collection of photos from my latest Photopost aren't showing up. (Possibly those images still haven't been "migrated".)
I have to "approve" comments. I hope I'll be able to "add subscribers and friends" to a master list so I don't have to 'approve' each comment I get from someone I already know.
Seems to be lots of spammers already, but I can send their comments to a "spam folder" before they show up on my blog.
The ability to "get in" or "sign in" seems to be iffy right now. Sometimes the blogs will "show up". Sometimes the "Xanga 2.0 is coming" screen appears.
Why can't I recommend entries anymore? (I possibly have to "turn this on" on my own blog? So far I haven't been able to find any blogs on which I can "recommend" or "like" even. That's a damn shame. I didn't do it all the time, but I "like" the opportunity to "like" something. LOL.
Well, gotta get to work.
The main page of Xanga (www.xanga.com) (I don't know if that will show up as a link, I'm not going to "tell" it to be a link in HTML just to see if the program "recognizes" links, like on FB for instance.) shows where to go to log in and gives some instructions on what to do, so perhaps some of my questions may be answered there. I do hope I will at least be able to "allow" all comments from friends/subscribers without having to "approve" each one, and that I can "acknowledge" by "recommendation" or "like" (we don't need "boost or stars" again, please) an individual entry on someone's blog. I even think WordPress allows "likes" of some kind.
Well that's it for my first Xanga 2.0 post. Not even an image. And the "title" is the first thing I ever wrote in a blog back in 2002, and also the first thing we always used to say into the microphone back in "radio class" or whatever it was called back in High School.
I guess Xanga 2.0 IS on, and I look forward to moving the furniture around so I'm a bit more comfortable!
