It's all been very exciting as I sat up last night to notify the most active of our previous members that the forum is ready. Bit rough edged, but ready. The emailing out was pretty good - nice sleek form. Great. But to my horror they weren't getting any link back to the forum!!!! It just looked like an ordinary email. I'm going to have to do it again, emphasising the URL I put in manually. A lot of them just wrote back to ME with just the kind of friendly responses I wanted IN THE FORUM. GRRRR! I need an option on admin email to NOT allow Replies back to me. Does that mean just leaving out a Reply to address? Also the notification emails going out are not at all useful. The View This Thread button is not good. Far too discreet. It needs to be central at top AND bottom of the email, stronger colour, and an explanation next to it to click it to visit and see the latest. But I can't find that button anywhere to edit it. Bit tired and frustrated a lot of work wasted. But still happy to get going.
