It is a slimmed-down version of the site with limited functionality designed for smart phones and other mobile web-enabled devices with smaller screens and low bandwidth. It therefore allows you to access the site, browse the forums, members and add new discussions 'on-the-go' or even from your home computer if you have a slow connection (e.g. dial-up or USB modems with download quotas). <br></br><br></br>Browse to this address:… A mobile version of the OAC is available.

Alternatively, mixing up OAC content with an easy to distribute RSS feed can also extend the reach of our own content.<br /> <br /> There are technical implications to adding many feeds to the front page, but it is well worth considering and a relatively easy fix. What are you interested in reading and from which sources? What content should we aggregate?

Remember that sites which display ads to remain free or to cover their operating costs benefit from pay-per-click advertising. Remaining free, in turn, benefits site members and the web as a whole.<br /> <br /> This is a quick and easy re-write of an earlier, more comprehensive How-To on removing ads that was lost when a departing member's threads were deleted. Please respond with additional reviews or information, as these are just the most immediate suggestions I could think of.<br /> <br /> <b>Firefox</b>: The best extension for removing ads quickly, easily and with simple customization options is <a href="http://adblockplus.org/en/" target="_blank">AdBlockPlus</a>. Fast installation <a href="https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865">here</a>.<br /> <br /> <b>IE7-8(?)</b>: I am not an IE user, but a quick Google search brought up the following third-party solutions. Adblocking software: <a href="http://www.admuncher.com">Admuncher</a> or <a href="www.adblockpro.com">Adblock Pro</a>. See also: <a href="http://www.quero.at/">Quero Toolbar</a>, "a navigation bar replacement with integrated ad blocker for Internet Explorer". I haven't tested any of these and have no feedback or ability to troubleshoot. Maybe an IE user can suggest something?<br /> <br /> <b>Google Chrome</b>: I have used <a href="http://adsweep.org/">AdSweep</a> on Chrome and Opera in light browsing and it worked fine. "AdSweep is a user javascript that defines CSS rules based on the web site you are visiting to hide elements of the page that show advertisements." Scroll down at the above link for installation instructions which, if the preceding sentence did not make sense to you, might only be suitable for intermediate-advanced users.<br /> <br /> Alternatively, <a href="http://lifehacker.com/5046529/how-to-block-ads-in-google-chrome">Privoxy</a> for Chrome blocks ads by blocking their servers. See link for brief instructions.<br /> <br /> <b>Opera</b>: <a href="http://adsweep.org/">AdSweep</a>.<br /> <br /> <b>Safari (Mac)</b>: A brief Google search brought up these alternatives: <a href="http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/10752/pithhelmet">PithHelmet</a> and <a href="http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/19202">SafariBlock</a>. I have not tested these or verified their source, so links are for information only. There may also be an ABP for Safari.<br /> <br /> Please research any/all of the suggested items before downloading/installing. Make sure you check your browser and file versions for compatibility and verify all download sources as usual. [FAQ] How do I view an alphabetical list of all OAC groups? tag:openanthcoop.ning.com,2009-08-11:3404290:Topic:21964 2009-08-11T20:48:53.653Z Francine Barone http://openanthcoop.ning.com/profile/Fran <b>There is a comprehensive A-Z index of all OAC groups available on the OAC Archive wiki: <a href="http://anthcoop.wikidot.com/grouplist">http://anthcoop.wikidot.com/grouplist</a>.

It would therefore be advisable to browse the group pages before creating a new one to avoid doubling up on the same subject.

How can I fix it?</b><br /> <br /> <b>A:</b> A group icon will not be created on your profile page if you have created a "private" group by selecting "Moderated Membership" in the privacy settings (see image below).<br /> <br /> We like to encourage that all new groups on the OAC be set as "public" in the established spirit of openness here and so that anyone can join and participate. I therefore recommend that, when creating a new group, you select the default option to allow "Anyone" to view and join your group, without moderating its membership. This will also prevent any display issues with the group icon.<br /> <br /> <b>Important</b>: Once you have created a group with Moderated Membership, it is impossible to change the privacy settings. The only option is to delete it (the entire group) and create it again as a public group. If you choose to do this with an active group, please be aware that all of the existing forum posts, comments and other content on the group page will be deleted, so back up your information accordingly and inform your group members before deleting their comments and posts.<br /> <br /> <p style="text-align: left;"><a class="noborder" href="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/3037734870?profile=original" target="_blank"><img width="500" src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/3037734870?profile=RESIZE_1024x1024" alt="" width="500" height="324"/></a></p> Click for full-size image.
