🔵 The Boards have been Upgraded!

The upgrade is here, it’s different and I need a new “skin” for this to get rid of all the white.

Some things are still happening behind the scenes.

Here’s info from Invisionboard

Hello,

Your community has been upgraded to version 4, and is back online. The following information was shown during the upgrade:

Pages HTML
HTML in pages, blocks and templates in Pages cannot be converted during the upgrade. While those pages and blocks will continue to work, you will need to review, and adjust as necessary, the HTML following the upgrade to integrate the styling used by the Community Suite 4.0.

Support Staff
Support staff cannot be converted during the upgrade. Please log in and set up support staff as administrators in the admin control panel after the upgrade and then review support department staff settings.

Please take a few minutes to thoroughly review your community for any issues. If any issues are found, please use the Support tool in the ACP for further assistance.

Please check any custom moderator permissions (ACP -> Members -> Moderators) for Pages Database categories. These have been reset to ‘All Categories’.

Please be sure to review the above item(s).

There are a number of Background Tasks running, to rebuild content slowly so as not to cause server resource issues, and which you can check on your ACP -> System page.

Please do not run those tasks manually, as that can cause server overload.

Those tasks are triggered by forum activity (people logged in and browsing the site), and until they finish, some of the layout may not be correct, such as quotes, signatures, lists, images, etc.

Once they have finished, however, if you notice any issues, please open a new ticket detailing the problem.

Message Board Upgrade Coming Soon!

I’m sure that there will be changes which we will figure out together.

The “skin” that we have now won’t be supported by the upgrade but I’m sure I can make it look nice again after the upgrade.

Please be patient during this process, and while we figure out the new features.

Thanks!

A Cushing’s Collection: A Humorous Journey Surviving Cushing’s Disease, Diabetes Insipidus, and a Bilateral Adrenalectomy

 

The author of this book has submitted a bio and is a member of the Cushing’s Help message boards.

From Amazon:

Diagnosed with a rare disease that only affects between two and ten people per million, Marie Conley used emails to communicate with family, friends, and co-workers to keep them apprised of the diagnosis and prognosis of Cushing’s disease and the many complications she experienced on this journey. Her ironic humor and raw, emotional approach helps bring hope to those touched by this rare and unrelenting disease.

In her mid-thirties, Conley, who strived to keep herself healthy while maintaining the delicate balance of raising a young child, keeping a home, and a demanding career, began to experience a variety of unexplained maladies inconsistent with her life style.Because of the elusive nature of Cushing’s disease, the treatment is a long and complicated process of trial and error.

At this time, there is no cure, largely due to the fact that Cushing’s disease is considered an “orphan disease.” As is her nature, she has decided to “adopt” this “orphan” and is doing everything she can to bring awareness to this disease.Conley’s tenacious spirit and determination would not allow this insidious disease to triumph over her life. Armed with her laptop as the only weapon available in the sterility of the recovery room, the author attacks the keyboard with a vengeance to let friends and family know that in this battle, there is no surrender.
