Chromecast works fine on some computers but not so fine on some others. On my iMac I use Chrome browser and chromecast to cast the shows on my TV. I bought yesterday a new iPad Air and have tested chromecast on it. YouTube and YleAreena (Finnish broadcasting corp) work fine, but for some reason Google's chrome browser on iOS 8 does not support chromecast and I have to continue casting The Quilt Show from my iMac instead of the intended iPad. It would be nice if TQS would make an app to be used with chromecast and iPad or influence Google to add the extension on their browser. I have been using chromecast since December 2013 and like it very much.

Looking forward to watching the current free shows.

That's actually another confusing part of the new site, Donna. Starting about a year ago, the policy on shows changed and star members (those with paid memberships) can now watch any show they want. You no longer have to buy shows that came out when you weren't a member. I'm guessing that they still keep track of the shows you "have access to" because, hopefully, you'll still have access to those even if you let your membership lapse. But I haven't seen anywhere where that part of the policy has been clarified.

At first, I felt lost visiting the new website this evening. First time to check in over here since last fall.

I know that change can be difficult, but I happen to like what I'm seeing on the site itself. Haven't been very involved in the forums, so I won't comment on their access now. Never used the blog feature, but I can appreciate losing something on the Internet you thought you'd have access to for an extended period of time.

I like that I can see my list of past shows available and the current free shows. The account page is easier to navigate.

Looking forward to watching the current free shows.

I am not sure I am posting this in the right place.
I suggest that TQS consider do a show and/or lessons about Electric Quilt 7. I bet there are many TQS members who have heard of Electric Quilt who would be interested in learning more about it. I know there are Craftsy classes available, but it would be nice to learn more about what can be done with Electric Quilt through TQS. Quilting education for all of us.

Janet, glad you figured out how to upload the photo. Quilters are such ingenious people!

Kathy I am finally able to add photos to my profile.... Have not tried adding a photo to the forum as yet using the iPad. Janet

PS I think I understand how the group thing works, but Bobs way was so much easier and much less confusing.

Further below that description area is a Comment section for others to ooh and ahh about your marvelous work! For example, go to this photo in the 2014 BOM and see my comment when you scroll down:

Thanks, Kathy. It worked. Thanks to you and all the TQS staff for making this an awesome site that I'll continue to follow.

I just followed the link you gave Carol. I was able to see your comment but it's only because I knew prior to going there that particular quilt was made by Rita Connally. Where would I find that info in the album.

When you click on an album, you will see thumbnails (small photos) of the photos in that album. You can open any photo by clicking on it and you will go to a page that shows the photo full size. On that page you need to scroll down a bit to see the comments.

Hope that helps you. Try it and report back to me.

thanks,

Kathy

All I can say is that Bob certainly had built us a great playground. I don't think the change has made life easier for Bob..

Thanks for your help. When I have a little more time I will go back and check all this out again. It certainly isn't "intuitive" at this point, though. I guess we've gotten too used to instant gratification! :)

Just thought of one more thing Carole - when you click on an album in a Group, it shows you thumbnails of the photos in the album. Click on one of the photos and you will go to a page for that photo which takes up most of the screen. That page is where you scroll down to see the upload username, description and comments. Hope that helps.

I can get to a group, such as the Grand Illusion group, and I can add a photo to the group's albums, but I see no way to put text with the photo to identify which photo is mine. I've looked, and hovered my mouse, and right clicked and still haven't come up with anything. So I can see an album with people's Step 5 photos, but I have no idea which photos were posted by which users. Am I missing something very obvious? :S
In Group Photos, after you post your photo in an album, you can then scroll below your photo and there is a space for a description which you can then fill in after you have uploaded the photo (I know, logically you should be able to do that when you are uploading the photo, and maybe we can eventually fix it). Also, when you scroll down a bit below the photo you should be able to see the user name of whoever uploaded the photo on the right side. The pictures take up a large portion of the screen, so you need to scroll down to see the other info below.

Ok, there are awkward things about this - I added my comment, but didn't see it until I went back to the album and then clicked on the photo again. Sigh, another thing to add to poor Bob's list.

What Ritzy said.....

New stuff can be overwhelming, but I love TQS and especially the friends I have made, literally, all over the world.

This past year I had to deal with California and Washington state's health care sites and truly, this new TQS is a breeze compared to that. (And the health care cost a lot more!!! And I didn't get much for my money!) In any case, I'm learning my way around, we have tribblemom who keeps up with us and I really think the yearly fee is a deal given all the really unique and wonderful teachers, ideas, techniques and friendships. Have there been problems? Sure.... but my glass is half full.

Ok, back to working on the Grand Illusion quilt, and the other quilts I'm working on! I can't wait for the party on New Years Eve!!
