A little trick to help direct folk from old forum to this one

Post by Charlie » 08 Mar 2017, 18:33

I've modified my signature in the old forums on the Gupta Technologies website to help direct folk to this forum. (We can still edit our details in the User Control Panel.)

It makes for a pretty loud attention grabber, I think.

BTW, here's how I've setup my signature in the old forum:

Code: Select all

[color=#FF4000][b][size=200]I'm now participating in Dave Rabelink's "Team Developer Community Forum" [/color](http://tdforum.daverabelink.net/index.php)[/size][/b]
I am certainly game to modify that to fit whatever "commonly accepted/desired" format that helps this community best.

Good idea, Charlie! I added something similar to my signature too: https://support.guptatechnologies.com/s ... 21&t=12534

Jeff, I like your signature way better. Very inviting.

So I'm going to stand tall on your shoulders and make mine the same ! (with just a minor tweak of "... TD / SQLWindows and ... ")

Whatever we can do to catch those poor souls who may be thinking they are now wandering all alone ...

I really believe that folk using old versions of TD without any GLS (or whatever the support is called) can still contribute things of value, even to folk using the latest version of TD. (And vice-versa.)

Thanks for the code to display your logo, Dave! I'm amended my Gupta forum's signature to show that as well:
