Uploading errors and slow connection speeds


There have been recent reports of error messages when uploading audio and audio cutting off early during playback.  Some of these errors may be due to your own hardware or internet service perovider.  We are currently looking on our end to see if there are any malfunctions we can fix to improve performance.

Discussion forums and training materials now available


The KBOO website now has discussion forums where volunteers and listeners can talk about the most pressing issues facing their show, the station, and community radio at large.  Materials are also available for you to download documents related to the many trainings that happen at the station.

To access these, you need to first log in to your user account (or create one if you don't have one yet).

To access the forums click on discussion forums on the sidebar.

To access the training materials, click on training materials on the sidebar.

Audio removed from program pages


Recently, we had a temporary problem that caused audio files to be removed from the program pages where they are normally listed.  This was related to problems with the date field.

During this time, some of the audio files did not write the air date into the database.  This means that some files will be listed with no date.  You can fix this for the audio you have uploaded by going to the "edit" function for that audio page and entering in the date.



After a lapse in blog postings, I will using this again as a way to keep users up-to-date on any issues related to the website. 

Please check here before reporting an error, as I will try to post reports as situations arise.

There's now a few easy ways to get involved with our website:

If you're a programmer or producer who would like training, there is now a sign-up sheet posted in the station lobby in the trainings section.  You can also email me with your name, phone number, and available times.  I'll be training people one-on-one mostly, so trainings will happen in the order people sign up.

If you would like to volunteer some of your time to help with our web efforts, there is a sign-up sheet posted in the station lobby in the volunteer section.  You can also email me with any specific elements you would like to help with and your any web or computer-related skills you have.  (Its okay if you don't have any!)  We are reforming a web group responsible for developing the website, training others, and improving our online presence.  You will be added to our email list where our next meeting will be announced.
