  • Hi autodidact,

    We found that very few groups were using 'Links' feature so we removed it to make room for other member requests that we’d like to release soon.

     To get to your old links page, please insert your group number in this link:[group ID ]/shortcuts.php

    We apologize if these changes cause any issues for you and your group.

     We’re discussing the new changes and asking everyone to post their suggestions and ideas HERE:

    Please use the 'Contact Us'  link at the bottom of any page if you have a problem finding your old links page.

  • thank you, that worked. will it continue to, or will it too be deleted soon? I've been trying for some time now to get you to EXPAND the links function. I have over 120 and would prefer to be able to categorize them for easier use. my groups links have been a major feature of the group, and I'm providing a service to people who are considering homeschooling.

    would you ever consider offering each group a limited number of options from a list, that was those of us who use the links could have them?

  • try hosting a web page rather than using CM for that purpose- you could link from you CM page to your web page and have as many links as you please...
