I wanted to let everyone know where things stand with the problems we’ve been having with the EPautos Forum – and the “ask Eric” button at the end of every article, which appears to be not-working, too.
I’ve asked the guy who helps me with computer stuff for help but so far, he’s been unable to do anything about either thing. It is very frustrating – and I am deeply sorry for the inconvenience to all of you.
I’ve also decided to ask for your help. If there is anyone among you who has some ideas, I’d very much appreciate them. I’m now at the point with regard to the Forum that I’m considering abandoning it entirely – that is, abandoning the past 16 years of library’d material there and just starting over, building something new so that people have something to see when they click on the Forum menu tab.
With regard to “ask Eric,” I’ve tried to deal with that by simply including my email at the end of each article, so that people can just email me their questions. It sucks, but it works.
Last agenda item: Have any you noticed any other problems with the site? Has anyone had any issues with the “donate” button? Or anything else?
These things make my teeth ache as I am a writer not a coder. I just want to provide the material and the place – and not have to deal with the infrastructure. I would be grateful for any counsel about the latter.
What I wish for the most is being in a position to be able to afford a full-time computer fuhrer to handle all of this stuff – leaving me free to write and you guys not having to deal with these endless verdammnt glitches!
