I hope you are all dong well! My developer has been hard at work on the website updates. Thank you to all the paid members who have contributed and made this possible! We have successfully migrated our newsletter to a new service, since our previous service (Google Feedburner) is ending this month.
The one problem is that many of these E-mails are being directed directly to SPAM folders. Please check your SPAM folder to see if the newsletter is being sent there instead! The E-mail will come from Costco West Fan Blog (firstname.lastname@example.org)
If your service like Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail, please check off the “not SPAM” button so that these mail services know that this E-mail is NOT SPAM.
You can also add email@example.com to your E-mail address book. This way your mail provider will know not to send these E-mails to your SPAM folder.
OTHER WEBSITE UPDATES
Believe it or not, we are still data entering all the old photos into our search engine! We have successfully entered 33457 photos into the database and we have just under 30,000 photos left. As of now, the photos go back to April, 2019.
Now that the newsletter & search engine has been completed, we have time to work on some user requests! I’d love to hear from you on what improvements are next!
Right now, we are working on the following tasks:
- Return colour photos back to the price tag
- Improve the quality of the price tag in the photos
- Making photos clickable to load a High Quality version of the photo
- Adding a price history button in the caption of each photo to load historical sale data
After this, I have some ideas that I would like to get to, but I would love to hear from you! If you have any ideas on additional functionality for the blog, please let me know in the comments!
