AAAAAAAACK!!!

It had been telling me for along time now at the open site screen that I could upgrade to a yolasite.com address and all pre-recalling links would work. Well, I did and jskit went f'n berserk and decined all my previous info. Lost all the ratings, polls and what not.

Now granted it is not alot as my site is still under a year old, but at first glance it urinated me off, bad!

I'm just letting you know I guess, and am thankfull JS started using get satisfaction also.

Just wish it would go back to the way I had it!!! Going nuckin futz here! any ideas?

Hey mred!

It's been awhile since we've seen you around here! It's nice to see you again.

I'm sorry to hear that you lost all your ratings, polls, etc.. on JS-Kit. It's always a blow when that happens. You will need to go to your JS-kit and update your site url to your yolasite one. Perhaps by doing this, your ratings and polls will come back.

When we made the change from synthasite to yolasite, we did say that if you are using any url-sensitive tools, like Google Webmaster Tools or Google Analytics, JS-kits, you will need to update the settings with your new web address. I'm just sorry that this was perhaps not made more clearly.

It's okay, I figured there was something to fix it, but the search I typed in didn't find what I wanted. Also a bad time consuming thing.

I'll check it tomorrow and see what happens.

I must add, It was nice that you noticed I hadn't posted in awhile?!? I mean I try to help where I can, but that you saying it, really made me feel like, ummm how to say, ummm special Ed lol, that you hadn't heard from me in awhile, that makes me feel dedicated, TY...I don't hardly get that at work!!!

mred rolls 1d 20.....Sad thing is, I actually rolled one lol, it hit 11 :(

If there are specifics, pls let me know, but what you are saying is that I have to change all my code correct? the http links?

Ed talking to self rolling 10d 4......

You will need to change anything that has .synthatsite.com to .yolasite.com.

Happy to see you.

I've been changing links for the last few hrs now and I'm not seeing my comments and ratings restored, and the navigator is starting over like it was just installed.

Would there be an admin setting on the jskit side to tell it it needs changed?
It won't let me add new sites to manage.

I'm not sure what else to try to get all my comments, ratings, and navigator info back.

Hello mred

JS-kit has revamped their site and is no longer offering free services. Existing members will continue to have access to their comments to existing sites, but I don't believe new sites can be added. Ratings and poll will also cease. Please read this for further information: http://blog.js-kit.com/2009/08/10/the...

I believe http://polldaddy.com/ has a rating system. I would encourage you to take a look at what they may have to offer. Perhaps they would be a good alternative for you.
