Re: Web site suggestions here.

new changes -
1) When you login...your user console at the top of the page is more organized.

2) a rules section/button/tab is now available.

3) member tab (no longer shows the users email address, a form to send email to a fellow member..prevents spammers and others from grabbing members e-mails..this shoulda been done long ago for privacy)

4) user trading post feedback system. buyer/seller can leave feedback about each other

5) location of user entered during registration that displays on profile now displays under their username on every post helping identify the geolocation.

Re: Web site suggestions here.

The [Member] tab has disappeared....

It was useful/helpful to locate a member quickly in the directory.

The member system is available again. I made some changes so instead of showing everyone's e-mail address to spammers..it just shows a e-mail or pm button.

Re: Web site suggestions here.

How about a Wish List ? As in: I wish thy'd build it with 'real' tilt steering.
I wish the'd make traction control and stability control switchable on XLE.
I wish they'd make it with a V8 under the hood.
I wish theyd make it with a better stereo and subwoofer than JBL.
I wish they make it with FWD or AWD selectable.
I wish they'd make it with Lumbar Support on both sides.
I wish they'd make it with a trailer hitch and towing package installed.

You mean a separate topic/board?

Re: Web site suggestions here.

Yes. Seems quite a few people have wishes for the next van from Toyota. I thought that the 'old' site had a wish list. If anybody from the manufacturer ever did come to the site, they might find people's 'wishes' in one place, rather than going through a daunting number of postings.

Re: Web site suggestions here.

A feature I'd suggest is within the "new posts search"

Some have it as a pull down that can be for a time frame like: 1 week, 1 month or by forum sub areas only such as w/ or w/o OT, ...

Re: Web site suggestions here.

Look at the top, right left under "Hello compac". You'll see the following choices:

Show unread posts since last visit.
Show new replies to your posts.
Show Own Posts
Personal Messages : 5 message, 0 are new
Last Login: Today at 0618 AM

That should be what you're looking for. I do find it hard to find some of these options. They just don't seem to jump out at you. Not sure why. In other forums they have a "NEW POSTS" button more prominently displayed.

EDIT: corrected misdirection above.

I've found it useful in other forums. Or is there something here that I missed.

Another possible way to get what you want is

1. click on "Home" tab in the top horizontal menu
2. scroll all the way down to "Toyota Sienna Forum - siennachat.com - Info Center "
3. look at "Forum Stats" and locate "View the most recent posts on the forum"
4. click on it

is not that what you want?

Cool! I was looking for that too.
I'm used to seeing a list of the last 10 recent topics instead of only the unread ones. I didn't want to be picky and ask for another feature
I think Dave has his hands full.

Re: Web site suggestions here.

I think you need to somehow include the word 'forum' in the title because I just happened to google 'sienna forum' and this site does not come up at all. However, 'sienna chat' yields it in the number one spot. Most people would not think of using 'chat' when searching for a specific automotive forum. Just a thought.

Re: Web site suggestions here.

The keywords specified in the meta-data for SiennaChat pages do include "forum". There are tricks to getting maximum Google exposure, and some tweaking could be considered to match "forum" more strongly, but the basic information is already there.

Code:
<meta name="keywords" content=", PHP, MySQL, bulletin, board, free, open, source, smf, simple, machines, forum" />
I don't know why the apparently superfluous slash and leading comma are in the content field, or if they affect the search engines.
