New UHTS website

From Michel Montreuil

Hi all,

Just a heads up that the "old" UHTS website will be shut down for good this weekend as we enable the "new" website with a new hosting service.  The old site has been backed up, and all the old issues of cattails have been saved.   Sometime this fall, the old web issues of cattails will be converted to PDF format.   However, not all features from the old issues will be available in PDF.

The new United Haiku and Tanka Society website will be up and running by the end of Sunday,
September 10, 2017.   The existing UHTS website will be shut down accordingly.   

Cheers
Mike


Alan's note:
Old website up for a while:

Welcome news, indeed!

I have withheld submitting to cattails, until I knew I could access my previous publishing credits of the old cattails publications.

Will be glad to have those notations and pdf versions in my files.

Warmly,
Jan Benson

From Mike Montreuil,

Hi all,

The implementation of the new website has been delayed.   We ran into a bureaucratic delay with the transfer of the domain name to our new hosting service site.  We are also fighting a domain name transfer troll.   More phone calls need to be made.

Hi Lorraine,

You don't have to use Facebook, the link is to the new UHTS website:
http://unitedhaikuandtankasociety.com

The Facebook icon far left is just the usual presence on other social media.

Still a few typos etc... to sort out, and the archives need doing, but it was a mammoth task, and getting closer. :-)

warm regards,
Alan

Alan,

Using my iPhone. Don't see anything but the welcome page and a way to enter through Facebook. It says that there's a way to join but I don't see it.

Hi Lorraine,

I'm old fashioned and don't use a smart phone for the internet, and iPads are next to useless for Facebook. I just use my MacBook Air laptop as it's so light anyway.

Here's the web link to join:

HOW TO JOIN
http://unitedhaikuandtankasociety.com/join

That'll go straight to UHTS Secretary: Iliyana Stoyanova.

NOTE: the Cattails journals will be archived later as PDF files.
An astonishing amount of work, most by Mike, is being done behind the scenes, and we are just now all joining in to do the proofreading as the technical side of things get some names wrong.


Look forward to seeing your name up there in the future! :-)

warm regards,
Alan

Lorraine is correct. However the problem is with the mobile version of the site. All the links on the mobile home page - except for the Facebook link - just circle back around to the home page. A frustrating problem for the mobile users. Someone will need to update the mobile links it seems.

Well, all I have is mobile anymore. On my last update for El Capitan, Safari crashed. sigh

Mike is slowly overhauling everything from the entire old website which was a nightmare regarding code and other things. It's been a lot of long hours, and slowly slowly, despite someone trying to troll a web address and putting work back, it's there, but of course it's an ongoing thing all the way through the rest of the year, and into the new one too.

He's now correcting the various issues that we spotted for him, and then onto archiving the Cattails into PDFs to make available for everyone.

Then we might let him have Christmas. ;-)

After Christmas, and maybe a New Year's Eve party for good behaviour, we can coerce him into making it cellphone/tablet friendlier. :-)

warm regards
Alan

p.s.

If you don't know, the genius behind the THF blog and forums is also one human working all hours at times, to make it look very easy. Believe me, it's not, so here's a big nod and thanks to Dave at THF, and Mike at UHTS.  :-)

Two years ago I helped a local organization do a similar migration to a new hosting service and a  complete website remake. It was a freaking nightmare...taking much time to resolve. I can fully appreciate what is going on here. My sincere gratitude to Dave and Mike, for all the tough stuff, and for making it all possible.
