We are currently experiencing some issues with readers trying to register or log in with Facebook Connect, particularly if you are using Internet Explorer as your browser. Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari seem to be better. Developers are working on the problem, and we will have the issue resolved as soon as possible.
Recently, we've added new features, including logging in with your Facebook account, threaded comments on stories, photo galleries and videos embedded with articles and more.
Here's a little bit about the new site:
Q: How can I use Facebook to log in?
A: You can use your Facebook account for one-click access to usaweekend.com, making it even easier to participate in the conversation. Plus, you can share your favorite news and comments with your Facebook friends.
If you already have an account at usaweekend.com, you can use that existing account or get started with Facebook Connect. Make sure you’re using the same e-mail address here as you do on Facebook, and you’ll be asked to link your accounts.
Q: What if I'm having trouble logging in or registering?
A: This website should work on both PC and Mac computers running newer, mainstream browsers. The browsers listed below have been tested extensively and are preferred for viewing this site:
Internet Explorer 8 or higher on a PC (DOWNLOAD)
Firefox 3.0 or higher on a PC or Mac (DOWNLOAD)
Safari 4.0 or higher on a PC or Mac (DOWNLOAD)
Google Chrome on a Mac (DOWNLOAD)
This website may work in some older browsers not listed, but we cannot be sure.
A note about Internet Explorer 6 (IE6)
Microsoft has launched a campaign encouraging users to stop using IE6. Upgrading to a newer version of the browser is simple, free and beneficial for you. They have a website with all the reasons you should switch and a link to download a newer version. Click here to check it out.
Q: What if I'm using a preferred browswer and still can't log in or register?
A: You may need to clear your browser's cache. Click here to visit a website with great instructions for just about every browser out there.
Q: How do I upload a photo to one of your galleries?
Q: How do I comment on a story?
A: To comment on a story, you must log in or sign up on usaweekend.com or log in using your Facebook account. Scroll to the bottom of an article and click on the Comments or Share Your Thoughts links.
Q: With this redesign, will my bookmarks still work?
A. Yes. The links you have bookmarked will still work.
Q: How do I report a broken link?
A: Please let us know about the link, and we will check it out. E-mail email@example.com.
Q: How do I find ________?
A: A good place to start is the top navigation bar. Just point your arrow over the category on the top, and the subcategories and headlines from that online section will show up. Or click on the main category to go directly to that section. You can also use the search bar at the top of the page.
Q: What if my question wasn't answered here?
A: E-mail them to at firstname.lastname@example.org.
