March 2007

The Chairfurs met last weekend and the specific order of business was centered around finalizing the updates to the website including hotel information, reviewing progress on our advertisement for Morphicon and Anthrocon's con book as well as loose flyers, and approving our 50% Programming Grid. (Yeah, I said Programming Grid.)

Hi!

If you're attending this year's Western Pennsylvania Furry Weekend, just a few days away, and you're still looking to save some money by sharing a room with someone or getting a group together to ride to Pittsburgh with, there are several people who have posted to the WPAFW Forums offering and petitioning for room and ride sharing.

Please visit the WPAFW Forums at http://www.wpafw.org/phpBB2/index.php

Thanks,

Hello Friends!

I’m here to remind you the Western Pennsylvania Furry Weekend, http://www.wpafw.org, is being held Columbus Day weekend, October 6-8, 2006, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
But time is running out! Event pre-registration will close in exactly one month and after that the cost to attend the event and reserve a room at the hotel will go up measurably. So what are you still waiting for?

Minor Site Changes

Hey folks,

I did a minor interface change to the website and made all of the blocks on the right hand site of the page optional. This means that you can control whether the "Recent comments", "Active forum topics", "Who's new", and "Who's online" blocks appear. If you don't like seeing them all the time, you can just turn them off!

To change the available blocks:

1) Make sure you're logged in click the link on the left that says "my account".

2) Click the tab across the top of the page that says "edit"

3) Go down a page or two to where it says "block configuration". If you want to see a block, make sure there is a check in the box next to it, otherwise uncheck the box.

4) Click "submit" at the bottom of the page. Changes will take effect immediately.

Enjoy!

-- Giza

Welcome to the Pennsylvania Furries website! This website was built with the Drupal publishing system. Some reasons that Drupal was chosen over other Content Management Systems include:

  • Forums that are integrated with the rest of the website. No need to create a seperate account just to get into the forums.
  • The ability to leave comment on nearly any page on the site. Even this one!
  • Drupal lets you "promote" any article or forum post to the front page. This is useful when someone announces an upcoming furmeet to give it additional exposure.
  • There are some really neat modules available for Drupal that can be used to add more features to the website.

Enjoy the new website, feel free to lend a paw, and please let us know what you think!
