Upgrade to Zeta   General Travel Discussion

Hi Everyone, and Welcome back to The Virtual Traveler. 

I hope you'll all join me in thanking Glen for his past few years of running this forum. He did a great job, and it was fun to watch the forum grow!

I also hope you'll continue to participate, because forum members - both posters and readers, are what give the forum life and inspiration. 

I will admit that I much prefer the Zeta format to the Classic format, so I'm going to be upgrading this forum in a few minutes to Zeta. All Delphi development for the past few years has been to the Zeta interface, so that includes all new features. Live Story, embed articles, and even our chat now uses the Zeta interface. Some of you will like it, some of you won't. If you *really* don't want to use Zeta, I'm not going to force this forum to Zeta Only, like I have most of my other forums. If you want to continue to view this forum in Classic, you can, by changing your own preferences.

Here's how: If you have not already done so, go to My Preferences on the My Forums page.

Mark the box to view all Zeta forums as Classic, and click Update.

You'll continue to see this forum in Classic.

You will miss out on some of the features of a Zeta forum, like Live Story and embedding articles, but if you're happy with Classic, then by all means, that's how you should view this forum. 

I've gotta tell you though, I love the Live Story feature, and intend to use it in this forum a lot! 

I hope you'll continue to join us here, whether you view in Classic or in Zeta.

I admit I'm a Classic person but I am trying to adjust to Zeta; I've made a forum just to play with and learn more about it.... I'll get the hang of it one of these days  LOL

Thanks for giving it a shot! It's really not that different, and all the newer features are in Zeta.

I have some "duh" questions but that has to wait till my days off... but I'm  kind of liking some of the features I've seen

Ask away when you are ready. I have (or can take) screenshots accompanied by easy directions for pretty much anything.

I'd reconsider this

You are posting the bulk of this forum's current content from Twitter and much of that is lost on Classic.

This is the Americans Abroad post on Jerry Brown as viewed with Classic


The travel pic of the day is not a pic if you do not view it with Zeta either...

I know, but I didn't want to totally alienate the people that were here when I took over. Even though I started this forum, I didn't do anything at all with it, turned it over to Glen almost immediately. 

What I might do, is post some pictures that show the difference if they'll view in Zeta instead of Classic, so they can see what the're missing.
