  1. Due to an admin control panel error, I am forced to do a software upgrade of the message forum. I am backing up the forum now in anticipation of the update Saturday evening. Hang on tight and expect some forum service disruption while I get everything updated.

      So far so good!  Do like the changes.  Still simple to use but some good adds.  Photo loader is now working like it did in past. No need to resize photos.  I wonder if there is a way on the home page to show newest add? Be it photo or a new blog - maybe this is already there.  Thanks for this site - I can really be myself here.  Dawn

      The Forums layout seems kind of odd to me. When it's first selected we see "Recent Status Updates," which is (at least to me) unrelated to the Forums, which is such an important component of the site. When I first navigated there I didn't realize that I needed to scroll down to the Forums. I'd suggest removing the "Recent Status Updates" from the Forums home page and move it elsewhere, perhaps to the Members.

  12. Successfully added Forums as a top-level navigation link on the top menu
  13. Changing the navigation menu is proving to be a huge task because of the nested pages, however, this will give the forum much more prominence. I have added a "Transgender Support Forum" button above the fold on each page of the site, so no matter what page they arrive on, they will see the green button directing them in here. Let's see how this works out. I'll still look at adding forums to the top level menu.
  14. That's a good point. I really struggled with the layout. The problem is we have limited room for the navigation tabs on the home page. I'll see what I can do.
  15. It appears we are back online Please report any bugs here.

    Many Texans Haven't Changed

    Nothing in the statements made by the suspect sounds truthful! This is a horrible injustice. ​

    More On My Own

    Hugs to you MichelleLea. The human condition isn't an easy path. Sometimes just knowing that other people care is the difference that keeps you putting one foot in front of the other. I'm so sorry for your loss and sadness. Hang in there.

    Site Upgrades

    I will be installing site upgrades on the TGGuide forums, as well as the main site. This will likely remedy some of the spam we've been getting lately. Thank you to the site moderators who have done a great job of keeping the spammers weeded out. Watch for the site upgrades and redesign in the coming weeks. Please bear with us during the upgrades and report any site performance problems to me.

    The fantastic journey......

    Christy, I think you are handling things extraordinarily well! Congrats on finding yourself and taking such a responsible role in your spouse's life. However it ends up working out, you will want to try to remain close -- whatever that means for the two of you. I really admire the fact that you are focused on her wellbeing. Best of luck!

    Being Alone

    I think we go through phases in life. Throughout my adult life I've been pretty outgoing and active, up until recently. I used to travel at least every other month. Lately I've lost the travel bug and prefer to stay closer to home. I used to thrive on adventure and adrenaline rushes. I no longer need all that. These days I prefer to stay home with my domestic partner and spend time with family and friends and the farm animals. I still have a social life but it is narrowing. I wonder if that will change or if this is the new normal for me. Your post made me think about how I would react if I lost my partner. It seems to me as long as you're not isolated and chronically sad and lonely that you're doing fine. It's definitely good that you have family and friends. Who knows, maybe a social opportunity will present itself at some point in the future. You just never know. Wishing you all the best.
