Help! Need New Tag Board!

As you can see, my tag has decided to stop working for some reason. I have limited time to spare in searching for a new one, so if anyone out there can help recommend a solution, please do.

It should one that is easy to add and easy to use. As I mentioned, I don't have time to be messing around trying to figure out how to install it, etc.

Anyone?

Anyone?

sign me in. its annoying not only because it doesnt function but the page loads too slow because of it.

Rik said...

Yeah, I just gave up and deleted mine, so at least the page won't be so slow now. I'll stay on the lookout for a new tag board...

See that's the reason why I switched to bravenet! All the extras are included in the service (tagboard, visitor count/stats and my favorite of all... IP tracing/banning!)

The community is very friendly as well.

Rik said...

Friv - is there a way I can switch and still keep all my previous blog entries transfer over?

Mrs Frivolity said...

Unfortunately, none.I did it manually by making new entries and copy/pasting from my blogger. The dates are editable so the entries would still be in order by the days. It was just easier than messing around with signing up to a new tagboard service.

Obviously I had more time in my hands then so I was able to do it in just a day, that includes choosing the layout, uploading the photos, etc..

Rik said...

Friv - Damn, I knew it couldn't be easy.

-SIGH-

Well, I guess it's back to the drawing board. Then again, I'll probably have a lot of free time when Virginia goes home next month, so maybe I'll make that one of my projects...

rik and mrs. frivolity,

my option is to download wordpress and have my own domain. im right now looking for options. the reason why i dont want bravenet is because i cant really personalized it. with blogger i can edit the template and experiment my creativity hehe.

im going to download wordpress this weekend and check on its functionalities. lots of bloggers use wordpress by the way. the drawback is you have to pay for a domain. wordpress is a free software.

on the subject of music... i posted this in your new tagboard (hey it has limitations, cant post long messages and even long urls!), do you by chance know a site of archived top 40 and rickdees hits? i wanna go through those 80 years and start recording or saving a copy of my fave 80s songs. i have enough space in my laptop and we have another desktop too where i can mirror everything.

Allright here's my suggestions...

First off Rik... you remember me telling you that you probably wanted to go with a legit CMS? I'm not saying I told you so, but I TOLD YOU SO...

Second, if you want I should be able to find a free tag board script and host it for you... but this is just delaying the inevitable.

misst has the right idea... get your own domain and hosting and go your own... with yahoo selling domains for under $5. and yearly hosting to be had for as little as $4 from globedomain.com you should really think about going that route.

Also misst, I used Wordpress for the better part of a year, and it's a great package to blog with, it does become limited when you try to seriouslly modify the cms. If you're going to go with version WP 1.2 or earlier I'd definatly say go with wordpress, but if the package you're going to use is WP 1.5 then I'd go with GeekLog.

Blogger has my id screwed up so with that... take care and this is
