      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

TR fixed, thanks!
I see you renamed "Trip Reports" to "Route Reports" and moved it to a Forum. Then remove the dysfunctional button "Trip Reports" in the very end of the main page. Still messing "Last 24 hours". Maybe it was moved somewhere?

Alex-  Trip reports were always filed into their geographic forums, even on the old site.  The TR page you miss will be brought back in some form when the Admins have time.  You can easily view what has happened on the site in the past 24 hours using the "Activity" tab.  It can be customized.

And thanks for finding the dead link on the main page.

Sorry if I missed this somewhere in this thread, but how do we access trip reports? Will they be displayed similar to the old site (Most recent to older)? Are they available right now, or is that one of the things you are working on adding?

That is the thing we are working on re-adding...the TR database/search tool.

For now you just need to go to each area forum and search.   

This was just a sacrifice we had to make in order to cut over to the new software ASAP, which makes getting new TRs coming in actually possible!

We will be restoring that functionality, and making it even better.

@Alex789Dead link on the front page fixed.  For now I just have it linking up the TR forums.

Thank you for your help.

Thanks Oly; the database "beta" search tool was the one item I used the most often.  Thanks for all the work you're doing!

Yep, we hear you guys loud and clear.  The TR search tool is at the top of our list.  I think @jonis going to see if he can get something going this week.

Posting trip reports is easy!  I've been skeptical, I liked the old site, but i'll adjust.  Glad to see the TR tool works so well.

What is the effect between the new site and google indexing?  Search results on google aren't showing a ton of content from cc.com.

Here's a question for the CC.com admins....

Would it be possible to provide some sort of tool to translate old CC.com thread/post URLs to a URL that accesses the same thread/post through the new bulletin board software?

You may recall that I've been capturing links to new route information since NWMJ went dormant in 2010. Here's the NWMJ Inbox page again:

http://alpenglow.org/nwmj/inbox.html

With the change to the CC.com software, all my old links to CC.com trip reports are now invalid.

It would be great to have an online tool, or something, to translate old CC.com URLs to the new forum structure. It does appear that all the old threads are still around, but the old links are broken.

Is there any way to help with this?

Thanks for any help....

@jon worked with the makers of the this new software to ensure that @Lowell_Skoog links to the FAs continue to work.  

We are continueing to work hard and making this site better. Thanks to all of of you that contribute.  This is truly a community, and we have never lost sight of that.  The trip reports, the gear recommendations, the advice, the friendships created here...  

This place is "special" in so many ways :ass:    Thanks for being here.   We are here to keep the lights on.

The TR database/search tool is in the works!
