All New Comments Are Temporarily Being Held

After the migration to Patheos, I learned that it may, in fact, be possible to migrate our old Discus comments over to Patheos from the old site. In order to avoid a lot of problems caused by publishing comments on the new site using the Patheos system and then switching back to Discus, all new comments are being held up in moderation while we wait to get the Discus comments migrated. If the Discus migration works, we will notify each comment author individually asking them to repost their … [Read more...]

Read Secular Outpost at Patheos

This is our last post on Blogger–at least for the foreseeable future. All new Secular Outpost posts for the foreseeable future will be featured exclusively at Patheos. After this weekend, all older posts will redirect automatically to the new site at Patheos. Once the archive of the blog is moved to Patheos, I will be shutting off the ability to comment here at the Blogger version of the blog because those comments would be lost to posterity anyway when the redirects kick in. … [Read more...]

Connecting via Social Media

Here are two ways you may connect with me “socially” if you’re so inclined. Atheist Nexus Here I have very little on that site at this time, but if you’d like to “connect” in a more social fashion feel free to drop by and send a request. Google Plus Here Facebook I have a Facebook account, but I am not a fan of Facebook, so I’m not interested in building out my connections there. … [Read more...]

Query

Say, just as a matter of interest, can anybody tell me who or what determines which ads are displayed when we look at Secular Outpost? I have been getting one that says "Liberty University: Training Champions for Christ since 1971." It has a faint image of someone who seems to be having an orgasm. Is it kind of peculiar that an atheist site would be carrying ads for fundamentalist schools (Liberty was founded by Jerry Falwell)? Also, there is one ad saying that three people have unfriended me … [Read more...]

Disqus and Starred Posts

FYI: If you like posts on this site, Disqus has a feature which allows you to "star" the page. Look for the box which appears directly below each post and directly above all of the comments which says something like "0 stars," "1 star," etc. Clicking that box once will add a star. Clicking it a second time will "undo" your previous action to give it a star. … [Read more...]

Migration to Disqus Complete

It appears the site's migration to the Disqus commenting system is complete. What this means to you:1. You now have the ability to edit a comment after posting it, a feature which is sorely lacking in Blogger's built-in comment functionality.2. Disqus provides a much more visually intuitive way of grouping comments with their replies, by displaying them in a nested tree hierarchy. Comments migrated from the old Blogger system will not be displayed in a hierarchy, but any new replies to … [Read more...]

Migrating Secular Outpost to Disqus for Comments

I'm going to be migrating The Secular Outpost over to Disqus tonight for comments on posts. This will cause all old comments to temporarily disappear from the site, possibly for more than 24 hours, until Disqus successfully imports the old comments from Blogger. Once the migration is complete, the end result should be a vastly improved experience for anyone who leaves comments on the site. In the meantime, thanks for your patience. … [Read more...]
