So you’ve finished your shopping, wrapped the gifts, baked some Christmas cookies and hung your stockings by the chimney with care. Your house is decorated and lit from rooftop to foundation. So what else is there to do on Christmas Eve? Why, grab some eggnog and gather the family around the warm glow of your computer screen to track Santa’s travels online, of course!
For more than 50 years, NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command), a bi-national military organization ever on the watch for man-made threats in the skies over Canada and the United States, has utilized its high-tech equipment each Christmas Eve to track the travels of Santa Claus in his sleigh. Each year NORAD provides updates to radio and television stations on the progress of jolly St. Nick’s travels, and in more recent years has also been providing live tracking information on the internet.
The NORAD TRACKS SANTA 2007 website is online now with fun activities including an interactive North Pole Map with games and more, and on Christmas Eve it will provide up-to-the-minute information on the exact whereabouts of Santa and his sleigh (and the reindeer, too). Visit the website with your kids now as they are sure to find it fun, and don’t forget to bookmark it for Christmas Eve.
For the nice (and naughty) girls and boys in the United Kingdom, the Wroxall-Weather website will also provide live Santa tracking on Christmas Eve starting at 7:00pm local time. As of now, the website has a countdown timer ticking off the seconds until Santa leaves the North Pole to begin his journey.
All of us here at WebSpawner wish you and yours a safe and happy holiday season and a very happy new year!
One of the questions that WebSpawner Customer Service receives occasionally is:
How can I remove an unwanted comment from my Guestbook?
Before we get into specifics of removing a comment, we should first explain exactly what the Guestbook is.
When you Modify web pages within your WebSpawner account, one of the questions asked in the Modification form is “Would you like to make a GUESTBOOK available to users who visit your web page?” followed by “Yes” and “No” options. If you choose the “Yes” option, a Guestbook button appears on your web site similar to the example shown below (the actual appearance is dependent upon the Layout and Color options you select).
When a viewer clicks the Guestbook button, they can read messages left by other viewers, and can leave their own message with a contact email address if desired. In this manner, a Guestbook serves as a way for a web site’s creator to get feedback from viewers and also to open communications by email between the site’s creator and viewers.
Occasionally a viewer may leave a message posted in a Guestbook that is unwanted or offensive (or both). The Guestbook Editor allows you to remove any undesirable posts from the Guestbook.
To access the Guestbook Editor, click the Guestbook icon under the orange Add-Ons tab in the Member Menu, as shown here.
The Guestbook Editor window appears. Each entry posted by viewers will be displayed, along with a Delete button next to each one. Use the scroll bar on the right to move down through the comments to locate the unwanted one.
When the unwanted comment is located, simply click the Delete button next to that comment to remove it from the Guestbook, and then close the Editor window.
Keeping your Guestbook clean of undesirable comments is just that simple.
If you have an Enhanced website account, enable that Guestbook today and start receiving valuable input and feedback from your web site’s viewers. Be sure to check the comments frequently, and should a viewer decide to act immature and post something rude or naughty, you can easily clean it up.
