    Default What is Permalink? How can I use it here at OrchidTalk?

    'Permalink' is a new feature that allows members to link to a particular post within a thread. You will notice this feature at the top right of the post you are currently reading.

    Name:  permalink.gif
Views: 93
Size:  7.1 KB

    "A permalink (a portmanteau made by contracting the phrase "permanent link") is a type of URL designed to refer to a specific information item (often a news story or weblog item) and to remain unchanged permanently, or at least for a lengthy period of time to prevent link rot. The term was coined by Scott Banister and Matt Kerner in 1995, though the first implementation wasn't until March 2000 by Blogger co-founder Paul Bausch." - google search

    Another new feature to make navigation on OrchidTalk easier. Enjoy!

    Cheers,
    BD

    Fancy stuff Bruce--gonna take a while for me to figure it out. But cool!

    Anyone else having problems navigating around in threads? Seems like the links in the thread list don't take you to the post you want to read. And if you post, you don't necessarily go back to your entry when you submit; it just goes to the first post in the thread?? Hard to find my way around. Just me?

    Hi Guys!

    Clear the cookies and cache in your browser. You are trying to use links that have been changed, but are still present in your browser's memory. All of the links on the site have changed from dynamic to static. Once you clear out your browser's stored information, everything will work correctly.

    Actually you will see a speed improvement because you will now only have to download the header on your first visit. It is now stored in the css file and your browser will cache it making all of your pages load much faster. It was another little bonus of the SEO improvements. This allows the web spiders to index the site without have to load the header and links bar each and every time.

    The sitemap I did last night had over 67 thousand links. LOL! Google only accepts a maximum of 50K in any one map. Ours was turned into 4 parts the first three with 20K and the last part with the remaining links.

    Let me know if you need more info on how to clear your browser's cache, etc.

    Cheers,
    BD
