  • Is this thing on?

    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.

    I'll have to find out how to "customize" my own theme, so my site and blog look similar. I hope I can import my own HTML. (Probably not javascript, Xanga stopped that long ago. But flash and standard links should still be able to be inserted into a sidebar.)

    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!

  • I think anyone who has been approved on your friends list will be approved to read your blog :)

  • Daphne, I don't know, cause I just had to "approve" your comment. I can't even FIND a friends list. I found "followers" but it doesn't say under "bulk actions" where to allow comments from people. Do you know which "button" I have to press?

  • I am still getting my head round things on Xanga 2.0

  • I'm starting to get the hang of it now. baby steps I guess. Glad to see you mike! jill

  • Ahh well, that's why I always perfered xanga to wordpress, LJ, etc. I suppose we'll get used to this new format

  • I's still trying to navigate this here new Xanga too...

  • Hi Mike, I think there are followers which is what used to be the friends list on xanga 1.0 but I am not sure which button you have to press :(

    Sorry :(

    <3 Daphne

  • Mike, we will figure it out eventually. You can go to settings and set yourself up so that when you have approved a blogger's comment there future comments will be automatically accepted. At least I think so because that is how wordpress work. Keep working at it! What I don't like about workpress is that they show all your subscribers latest posts - would like to have an easy navigation to specific friends, I read more frequently. Maybe it will be something in the future. My photo's is also not visible. I would hate to think the photo's in my blogs are lost.

  • Hi, Mike!
    Ooh on jury duties! I've served on some juries! Yes, they let me on! Seriously!
    ;-) :-D
    Yes, I'm still trying to figure things out here....it's much like WP...but with less features...so far.
    But, the Pollyanna in me, says, "We'll figure it all out!!! It's all good!!!"
    HUGS!!! :-)
    PS...If you wanna' slap Pollyanna, you can! ;-)

  • This will take some getting used to! Good to see you here, though. I'm still figuring out how to customize the page. The good thing is, we're all figuring it out together.

  • Hi Mike!
    I'm just a "reader" since there's no way I can pay the $48 Xanga ask for blogging because Xanga team couldn't find a way of people outside USA and without credit card pay it...
    I have a list of blogs I can read and comment - those I subscribed before - but can´t subscribe or even visit any one else - for instance I would like to visit summereque or m_elmer_48 etc. who comment here but there is no link and even I write their complete address I'm redirected to Xanga front page! This is boring!!!
    Have a nice time!...
    Isabel

  • Welcome to 2.0, I hope you get it figured out.

  • Hi, Mike--you can adjust your settings so that comments do not require your approval. Or you can make it so that when you approve one comment from a user, every comment thereafter from that user will be approved.

  • Weäll figure out before the launch of Xanga 3.0

  • Passing on some important information:
    Name Link not Working?

    If you notice that names in comments are no longer clickable and the avatars lead to a ‘not found’ page, do this: Top right, of your screen where your cute lil avatar is, chose Edit Profile. Scroll through and look for the space next to Website. Add in your xanga address (eg. http://myname.xanga.com) and this make it so that your name becomes a clickable link. It still does not work with your avatar image however.

    Try this! It worked for me!
    HUGS!!! :-)
