New Blog Format


Hi folks,

I know that the recent change in the blog format may be a bit jarring, but I've been given some instructions that may help with posting and other issues.

"To comment on a DRF article or blog post, click the bar that says "Login" at the bottom of the post. A box will open up showing the logos of several social networks and email providers: Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail, etc. There are 23 in all -- if you do not have any accounts with the providers on the first screen, click the arrow to the right. (AOL, for example, is on the second screen.) Choose which account you want to connect with the DRF comment system and click that logo.

A box will pop up asking you to log in on that network with your existing username and password. If you do that and click "Sign In," the pop-up will close and you will be ready to post a comment. The system will keep you signed in until you hit "Logout," and you will not have to complete a "Captcha" or any further passwords or verifications. If the blog you are commenting on has moderation, your comment will be published once the blogger approves it.

If you do not have an account with any of these networks, you can create one on any of the free services such as Twitter and use it to connect to the DRF comment system."

Again, these changes may be a bit overwhelming at first.  I've suspended this week's HG exercise until we get the hang of this new format.  If Randy wants to select another race, he may do so.  If not, I'll post a race when I return with a larger blog post early next week (two weeks worth of Beyers, questions and answers, HG past performances).  If you have any more questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact cservice2@drf.com and those issues will be forwarded to me immediately.

Hopefully, we'll get the hang of things quickly and can get back to our regularly scheduled programming here on the blog.

Have a wonderful weekend and I apologize for the inconvenience.
