A New Direction!

Hi Everyone!

~Update: I think it's all working now! :) ~

After thinking about it for awhile, I thought I'd try something new here on Heaving Dead Cats. I installed BuddyPress, a plugin that extends how we can all use the site.

So if you register, or have already (I think), you can create a profile, post messages, make connections with other users, and interact in groups.

There is a grey navigation bar at the top of the page for easy access to everything.

I set up a forum too, but I'm not sure how to access it yet. I'll be playing around with it and tweaking it for awhile so if you have any comments, questions or suggestions, or if you know how to get the most out of BuddyPress, please let me know!

Last week I wrote up some Rules and Guidelines for Participating on HDC. This is the starting point for how to use the site now that it's expanded. The rules will be changed as needed to create the best environment for everyone.

Enjoy and please give me feedback.


  1. I'll look into it. You might already be registered. I was.

  2. I don't think the registration's working correctly, unless I stumbled on some rare bug.

  3. You're right, Frans. I will fix it. Play some really cheesy music while you are on hold. :P

  4. It was my theme, Frans. I changed to the default and I think it's working now. Please let me know if it does or does not work for you so I know if it's fixed!

  5. I managed to register when I used all lower case (which might've worked yesterday had I tried), but it claimed that it would send an activation link to my e-mail address and it didn't (unless it's still stuck somewhere, an hour later). Either way, I can't login.

  6. Thanks so much for letting me know, Frans. I think the reason it worked is because I changed themes. The other one wasn't compatible.
    I fixed the problem with the activation. Thank you for telling me, I didn't realize it was a problem.
    Unfortunately I think you will have to register again to get your account activated. Do you want me to delete the one you have now so you can use the same email address and information?

  7. Ok! You should be good to go! Let's hope it works this time! :D

  8. Woot! :D :D :D
    Let me know if you have any other problems! :D

  9. I thought I registered, but my username/password are not recognized?
