    Forum Moved - New Domain - Let us Know if Any Problems

    We moved the forum over the weekend to a new shorter domain: http://www.localsearchforum.com/

    PLEASE bookmark and change any links over to the new domain.

    Please let us know if you see anything amiss, if any links don't resolve or features don't work as they did before. As far as we know everything should work just the same, but with a site move, especially with all the different software and plugins it takes to run this place, there can always be unforeseen issues that come up. But we've tested pretty extensively and think everything is working right.

    FYI RE OLD RSS FEED - I switched it in Feedburner and all old links now forward to the new domain so I think your feeds and email subscriptions should still work. FINGERS CROSSED.

    Thanks for your patience and I hope you didn't miss us too much while we were down Friday - Sunday.

    And many, many thanks to my Forum Administrator David who did most of the tech stuff and heavy lifting. No way in heck I could have done it without you. You ROCK!

    Great job guys. Sounds like it wasn't easy, but glad you both made it through.

    FYI there is an issue with none of the training videos working. Someone just reported.

    I have privacy settings set so videos can only be embedded on my domain. Well it's the OLD domain so they won't play here. Just never thought about having to change that setting.

    Just finished fixing all the videos for the NEW Advanced Google Local (Google My Business) Training. Will get all the other training videos fixed for the old Google Local training and the Onsite SEO training later today.

    Oh I never thought about those either. Let me know if you need help changing the links.

    Re: Forum Moved - New Domain - Let us Know if Any Problems

    Thanks David. The links are inside my Vimeo account, not links we can change here.
    So that's why I never thought of it.

    Today as I work I'm finding all the other outside links I need to change, like on Discuss and various social sites.

    But it was so worth all the work to get moved into our new home.

    Thanks again for all your help!

    Okay. And you're welcome. At times it felt like Larry, Moe, and Curly with all the password changes but all in all other than that it was a pretty smooth move and no pianos were dropped or pets left behind.

    It sure felt knarly and exhausting in the middle of it. Just like a physical move.

    But then when it's over you feel like: "WHEW! That wasn't so bad" because you are just so happy and relieved to be all settled in your new home.

    I guess that's it. In spite of the late start we still got it all done to reopen Monday morning which at one point seemed not at all certain.
