Forum relocated
« on: March 25, 2019, 03:03:36 PM »
This forum now has a new home. Instead of being under lexigame.com it is at https://theforum.lexigame.com/. All forum visits should be automatically redirected to the new address.

The main problem (that I can think of) that some people might have with the move is that they don't get automatically signed in at the new location (because cookies are tied to a site address). If you can't work out how to log into the forum now, send me an email to support@lexigame.com and I'll sort something out for you.

The main reason for this change of location is to simplify any future migration of the lexigame site to a different hosting provider. But in any case it might be a good long-term approach to have the forum at a different site from the main Chihuahua site, to minimise the disruption if either is out of action for a while.

Please let me know of any problems with the forum at its new home.

Does that mean I need to use https://www.chihuahua-puzzle.com/ for the game in order to see the 'New' label in the Forum Latest section?

No, it should make no difference which Chi site you use. Both should flag the new posts.

No, I'm not seeing them either, Alan. On either site.

Mike, I had your post flagged as new on the lexigame site. Of course, it wasn’t on the other site because I had read the post and it was no longer new.

Okay here too, Alan.  But I have noticed some tardiness in loading either site.  Of course, that could be due to our wonderful NBN (No Bloody Network) system in Australia.

I refreshed the page (which I rarely do). All sorted!
