New MakeupTalk Questions?

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the NEW MakeupTalk!

hello.jpg

I thought I would open a new thread to to say HELLO and WELCOME.  The newly redesigned MakeupTalk was over 1.5 years in the making.  What do you all think about the new MakeupTalk's Design/Look/Feel?

 

You may ask some questions here in this thread.   Here is another conversation going on http://www.makeuptalk.com/forum/thread/111714/new-makeuptalk-questions

 

For suggestions, we have provided a new forum called "Suggestion Box" for suggestions.

Make sure you take the site tour here

Tony I think you did a great job on the redesign.  It is obvious a lot of planning and coding went into it.   The site is infinitely easier to navigate than it was before and the main page is so much more appealing visually too.   So you hit a home run on all those web site usability issues.   I am sure there might be a few things that were there before and are not but maybe there are workarounds etc.

 

I like how the notifications for thread updates are at the bottom of the thread now.  Makes so much more sense.   now question is there a default setting that you can make like no email upon updates?

 

 

If I could make a suggestion it is on a person's home page.  Before you could do a lot of fancy stuff with styles and a lot of graphics, videos.  The possibilities were kind of endless and some people had some real creative pages.  It was nice because it was the one page that really said something about the individual.  

 

The new page or is that community page is just so mundane that it almost seems out of place with the rest of the Makeuptalk site.  Is it possible to turn bbcode on for the page?  That would make a world of difference in my opinion.

 

I kind of think the idea of the Adult section sets MuT apart from other Makeup or even lifestyle web sites and should be kept.   It is not for everyone and people have to apply to get in and then can choose not to go in there so I don't see the problem with keeping it.   I don't believe it has ever been the source of controversy between members and there are frequently some real interesting posts.

I was looking at my profile and I had a couple of additional pics of my daughter in there. They're gone now and there's a link to a gallery, but when I click it I get a "system error". Does that mean they're gone?

Yeah I really like it. It looks a lot more smooth and flowing, and is very pleasing to the eye! I like how even though there were changes made, they weren't too drastic to where I couldn't figure out how to do things, everything works pretty much the same, but looks different.

HI Darla,

 

Thanks for the wonderful compliments.  Yes, a lot of work went into the redesign, over 1.5 years to be exact.  Our idea was to take MakeupTalk to a new level and I think we have accomplished that.  We will have on going updates to the new platform and with our new team, working together on updates, you will find it easy and fun.

 

Subscriptions:

To make those changes to your subscriptions, click here: http://www.makeuptalk.com/users/subscriptions/index/action/edit.  Scroll down and look for " Stop All Subscriptions Email" and "Default for new subscriptions".  Make your adjustments there. 

 

What you do you mean "A person's homepage"?  Are you talking about their profiles?  I think you are.  Well, currently it's not on our road map to moving back to the customize-able CSSed profiles with images/backgrounds, etc.  I hear ya, but as of right now, that's not planned.

 

What community page are you talking about?  Currently, the new website is only supporting IMAGE BBcode only.  You can do everything the same with the WYSIWYG editor.  [*img]http://www.picturesonline.com/44532.jpg[*/img] (remove the asterisks)

 

Adult forum:

Currently we are slated to discontinue the Adult forum.  I hear ya on why you wanna keep it, in fact I know users find it interesting.  With the new system anyhow, users don't need to apply, they just need to have their birthdays set for 1992 or before.  I don't think I've seen any controversy there.

Hi Kathy!

 

Currently, user profiles are not supporting images.  This may change in the future.  You can though, have galleries and feature those galleries. I don't know if your pictures are gone.

Hi bCreative,
 

Currently signatures only allow for 5 total line.  You can edit your signature by visiting your profile page and scrolling ALL THE WAY down and look for the test "Edit Signature Text"

Hi Emily,

 

Yeah, changing things can sometimes be difficult.  In fact, I, myself am a huge creature of habit and I'm still getting used it.

I like it for the most part, the colors are throwing me off a bit, but I'll get used to it.

 

Is there a New Post tab, I can't find it?

There is a "NEW Posts" link, but it's at the bottom in the footer.

 

What I did was made a bookmark up in my browser with this link in it"  http://www.makeuptalk.com/forum.php?action=newposts

I'm still pushing to get that added to the forum menu from the forums tab (next to the site home | forum home at the top.  We also do have it linked in the Forum Navigation on all pages:

Tony,  I tried this and I still get a system error....there weren't any asterisks to begin with, but even so it's not working. Should I put them IN and see if it works?

It's in my profile in the "About Me" section.

 

This is the section I'm talking about. There used to be pictures there...somehow it became links, but the link doesn't go to a gallery, it just says "system error".... any suggestions?

 

I waited until I was 40 years old to have my first and only child and it was not an easy task. Physically or mentally. But, she is soooo worth it! We were blessed that she was born healthy. Here's one of her on her daddy's Harley!
gal...

And another doing her "Yah Hoo Ride 'Em Horsey" routine.

    • Yes, it is quite good. Why do you ask this?
    • But what if she CAN'T afford experimenting with different products? That might really make the situation worse and harm her hair even more... Same with home remedies. If your really want to change your hairstyle then hair extension is a good option because you won't damage your hair and scalp. You can actually lookup the tutorials on the web, but videos on Youtube are more descriptive.
    • Hi, I'm moving to the UK shortly from London. Are there any British skincare/makeup brands that are difficult to obtain there? I might need to stock up before leaving! J
    • A man goes to the doctor, concerned about his wife’s hearing. The doctor says, “Stand behind her and say something and tell me how close you are when she hears you.” The man goes home, sees his wife in the kitchen, cutting carrots on the countertop. About 15 feet away he says, “Honey, what’s for dinner?” Nothing. He gets halfway to her and repeats the same question. Nothing. Very concerned, he gets right behind her and asks again “What’s for dinner?” She turns around and says “For the THIRD time, beef stew!”
    • There are a variety of benefits for Orange Essential Oil. I am mentioning some of them: 1. It lifts your mood up and reduce the stress 2. It treats skin conditions like acne 3. It helps with Upset Stomach 4. Can be used as a flavor in food and beverages
