Welcome to the new home of the Republic of Pemberley. This move is our version of retrenching. In this newer, more streamlined place, you will find that some things have changed and some remain the same.
This page is your front door. The menu bar under the header has drop-down menus that will take you to any page on the site. This bar will appear at the top of every page except the discussion boards, where the only link is back to this home page.
The discussion boards are new, and you will find some differences from our old boards:
- Many of the old boards have been consolidated into fewer forums but we think you’ll be able to find your way around.
- Instead of a Newcomers’ board, we have Registration. Create a Profile (register) or login will appear in the upper right side of the discussion boards, just under the header. You must be registered to post on the boards, but you can read any board without being registered. Once you have registered be sure to go back to the Control Center (beside your login on the upper right) and set your privacy options. Here is where you tell the software whether or not to display your email on your posts.
- Once you are registered, we think you’ll like the options available to you on the boards. As always, we have a Help board if you have any questions.
Our Life and Times archives is being used to populate the L&T Knowledge Base (on the Special Jane Austen Pages menu). This is a work in progress. Please bear with us.
Many of the subsidiary pages will look familiar. Some won’t. Don’t hesitate to ask at Help if you have any questions.
Although it’s a bit smaller, we’ve worked hard to make this new site even better than the old one while preserving as much of the Pemberley look as possible. We hope you enjoy it.
