World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) is here again and Pregnancy.org is ready to celebrate -- with YOU!
World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) is here August 1st - August 7th! This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the WBW event. Pregnancy.org is proud to continue our efforts to provide our members and our viewing audience with resources, support,and encouragement needed throughout their breastfeeding relationship with their baby!
One of our favorite activities throughout this week-long celebration is to celebrate the breastfeeding efforts of our members -- both individually *and* as a community!
We invite you to join in by visiting our Pregnancy.org Page, locate this post, click "Show Conversation", and post your totals in the comments!
(**PLEASE NOTE**: You may have to scroll down our wall or page over if later in the week!)
We need EVERYONE that has even attempted breastfeeding to join in! Add your stats for the number of days, months, or YEARS that you have breastfed your little one. No amount is too small to be included! Have more than one child? You can list them all! Be sure to help us spread the word! Invite your family and friends onsite, via email, on Facebook, and more to join the site and add to the conversation. The more, the better to celebrate! We are hosting the event on our page to have a central spot for members throughout the site -- forums, calendar / charting users, content visitors, mobile app users, Facebook and Twitter friends, and more -- to unite and take part!
No need to do the math. Just post the time you have spent (either currently or years ago!) breastfeeding! At the end of the week, we will tally all of the posts and announce the total amount of years, months, and days that our Pregnancy.org Community has spent breastfeeding and announce it on our wall and throughout the site!
Ready to participate? Visit our Pregnancy.org Page Now!! Remember to "friend" us while you are there by clicking the star!
I've tried with a non-admin account and took screen shots to show you what I'm seeing. This is with firefox.
After clicking "show conversation," I scrolled down. Following the last comment, there was this box:
I don't think that account has friended the page, but may have. You might try clicking on "friend" beside the star near the top on the left. Illustration below:
Does it look anything like these when you try?
Thanks for adding those screen shots! Janel, I believe that I found your issue. Your homepage profile was incomplete following our change to a universal login back in 2008. LOL. I went ahead and put something in for you which you can go in and edit when you have time later. Next, make certain that you are still logged in on our homepage. (When you log in, take a sec and click the link to "Create My Member Page". This serves as your own personal wall where you can follow/friend/connect with other members.)
After you have clicked to create your wall, simply scroll down to where you see the purple bar and click on Pregnancy.org! Alternatively, return here and follow that link. Again, be sure to click on the star as shown above then to "Friend" the page!
If you need more help, post back here or drop me a note via pm or email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I found that I had to log in AGAIN on the homepage before being able to post, even though I'm perpetually logged in. The homepage was showing "Spacers" at the top, even, but I couldn't get to the comment box until I logged on again. That's just ridiculous IMHO, if you're logged in, you should be logged in to everything on the site.
It takes 12 pounds of grain and 2500 gallons of water to produce ONE POUND of beef.
Livestock generates 65% of all human-related nitrous oxide, which is 296 times more warming to the environment than carbon dioxide; 37% of all human-related methane, which 23 times as warming as CO2; and 64 percent of ammonia, which contributes significantly to acid rain.

Agreed that it should have you staying logged in -- and I believe typically does. I am suspecting, however, that maybe there was an old cached file/cookie that may have been corrupted when maintenance was done a while back. (I vaguely remember experiencing a similar issue with my own account at that time.)
I am sorry for the hassle. If you are willing can you check again to see if it is working now regularly for you? If not, can you let me know if you have cleared your temp files/cache / cookies since this time?
If you've been waiting to post -- we're winding down to the final days! Make sure to get your totals in and again... EVERY day counts so don't be shy if you were bf'ing for a short term or for years! Help add to our total today!
