Re: KindleBoards.com... will be KBoards.com after March 7th..!

Yep, I would have thought so, but unfortunately I only had it saved as part of the home page, and not in my favorites.  The home page keeps automatically forwarding to KBoards.  If there's an editable link to the home page settings, I haven't found it.  I'm running IE 9.

I'll play with it, maybe I'll figure it out.  If not, I'll try again to find the original forum post.

Thanks!

Ooh, and just like that I found it!  Figures.  Looked for 30 minutes before I asked, then just found it in 2 minutes...

If anyone else is interested, it's here:

https://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,72469.0.html

If someone has a list of the forum board numbers handy I would appreciate it!

    Nice and smooth transition. Everything looks good. I hope the bugs aren't too annoying. At least on this end, it looks good.

    Anything special need to be done with Tapatalk?

    Just answered my own question (Tapatalk). I went into Tapatalk on my tablet and it updated the link and name automatically.

    At the same time, we replaced the longer affiliate tags with the short versions of ?tag=kbpst-20 (for Amazon US) and kb1-21 (for Amazon UK).

    Harvey, I have a browser bookmark that goes directly to Amazon, which I use when I don't go there from a KBoards link. It has the KB affiliate tag attached so you'll receive affiliate money whenever I shop there. I need to change that Amazon bookmark link to read:

    Code: [Select]
    http://www.amazon.com/?tag=kbpst-20

    and for those who use the UK store:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/?tag=kb1-21

    Is that correct?

    Nicely done.
    As usual I did not notice this until it was happening.
    But then we all know I don't often notice these things.

    Thanks, Xopher. I'm actually surprised that it worked that way, and I wonder if Tapatalk is picking up the redirect from KindleBoards.

    That redirect won't always be there, so I think you may have to setup the new forum in Tapatalk on your device, by searching for "kboards", clicking that, and signing in. At least, that's what I had to do and I think I would recommend that approach.

    You can, but there's no need to - - all of the previous affiliate codes are still in effect. Thank you so much for thinking of that though!!

    Nicely done.

    Thank you, Geoff! Our goal was to make it seamless, and I think we almost accomplished that.

    DreamWeaver, I think you need to change that second one to have   .co.uk    in it instead of    .com.

    Oh yes, I see that I mistyped that. Thanks! I just fixed it in my original post.

    I am new to this forum and I so far it works just fine. I like your new name better, simple and easy to remember! Good choice!
    Also I do enjoy the board as I "learn" a lot of new things about something I should already have all the knowledge about  .... ;)
