Right now I have the settings so that everyone can read but only members can post. Once we get situated over here, I can make parts of the site private again, like the journals, so only members who are signed in can see them. For now, I want new members showing up to see that it's really us.

I usually use the web version of the site, even if I'm on my phone. On it, the most recent journal activity is shown first, and you can jump to the last page of any journal by clicking on the double arrow. If you're not seeing journals at all, click the lines in the upper right of the page and log in.
The Spaces app is nearly useless. I use it to create new posts, to read notifications on posts I'm subscribed to, and that's about it. Clicking on a notification is the only way to jump to the latest post in a journal. If you search for a journal by name, like "Skwigg's Journal," it will give you like 2,000 results in reverse order, which is fairly annoying.
In the Spaces app, you can click on Forum, then choose Personal Journals from the dropdown, then choose the one you want, but it's still pretty unwieldy with no easy way to jump to the end of a journal.
I suspect this platform never intended for posts to receive hundreds or thousands of replies and stay active for years.
Are you logged in? I think some of the journals are open and some, like the personal forum journals, you need to be logged in.
I use the Spaces app on my phone to view the forum but for some reason, not all journals or forum sections are available. Does anyone have the same issue?
Anything you posted on this site with the new layout is still here somewhere. Everything on the old site, I thought we would lose in 30 days, but it was nearly two years before they got around to removing it. It is really gone now though. Our old journals were private, so they didn't get archived in the Wayback Machine or anything.
I haven't been in this newly designed website in years! Does this mean my previous profile and journals are all gone?
I got it to change from my laptop. Couldn't seen that edit box from my phone. Thanks! :-)
Ah, that's it on the website, @sunshine @Jamielise Click your icon doodad. Click the Edit box under your profile photo. It comes right up on a line to edit your username. Oddly, I could only tag @Jamielise here. The other username wasn't an option.
I think I just had to log jnto the website for it to sync Let‘s see if it worked?
On the website, go up to your account icon do-hicky. That brings you to your "profile". Under your profile image icon there is an "edit" box. Click that to change your handle.
On the app, go to "my account", then click your name and email at the top of the screen. Now you'll see two places where you can put your name/handle. One is at the very top of the page. there is a little pencil on the far right that you can click to edit. Then underneath the work 'profiles". if you click under the word "profiles" it brings you to a "profile page". On the top right is the word edit. Click there to change your profile name. Hope something there is helpful.
I investigated and Jamielise can change it online and through the app. I'll jump on my computer to type out the walk through
Sounds good! Thanks!
I think it worked. It’s Jamielise now in the notifications.
Testing again... testing again
I changed it my first name. Let’s see. Testing... testing...
I semi-remember putting skwigg as my first name.
Try clicking on your little avatar icon and going to My Account. You should be able to change your username and customize your profile there.
How do I change my username back to jamielise? I’m not figuring it out!!
Oh, hey! It worked already. Personal Journals are only visible to members who are signed in.
