Hi,
This in response to the email requesting Admin's to check out their school's name as it appears in the FB Class Connection app.

Searched for 'Clearwater High School' and 'Clearwater. For both the first listing shown was

Clearwater
Clearwater, FL

When checking for years other than '61, the search shows only Clearwater YYYY in the header of the FB page. Note: the app on our ClassCreator site for Class of'61 shows the correct listing 'Clearwater High School'. Suggest changing your DB name to

Clearwater High School
Clearwater, FL

Noticed that there were other Clearwater, FL schools with their full names shown.

Please change St. Catherine's School Multi Year 1956-1991 to
St. Catherine's School Multi Year 1956 - 1994

Yesterday I entered new member Edith Perrone Class Year 1991 when it should have been 1994. I couldn't go beyond 1991, forgot how to move beyond the last class year.

Is there a log out on FB /Class Connection APP ? Does X ing out close the website completely?

Thanks.

Couple things here:

1) I changed "Clearwater" to "Clearwater High School"

2) You can't use the join screen to visit other classes. Once you have joined your Class Connection account is locked to only your own class year. To bounce around other classes click the Visit Another Class link.

1) School name changed as requested.

2) You need to change the year span on your Preferences page. I changed it to 1994 while I was in there.

3) No there is no logout. Facebook itself is the login/logout. If you want to log out, just log out of Facebook.

Please adjust Plainedge to read Plainedge High School.

Also, there are duplicates. Plainedge High School is located in Massapequa, NY.

The Plainedge, NY and North Massapequa, NY locations can be removed.

Thank you!

Francine I changed your school name. Is the school in Plainedge, New York possibly also really the same school as your Plainedge? i.e. do they need to be merged? Otherwise there's a legitimate class under that school with 615 active members.

Thanks for posting this. That's EXACTLY the problem with current search I was trying to explain to Brad in another topic.

Your school is now called Alton High School LINK

I think the term "Senior" was prevalent during the time when there were "Junior High Schools" which are now called Middle Schools. Hence they called them Senior High Schools. And now that is dropped.

Therefore, the term Senior needs to be ignored in searching so that either a school with or without "Senior" all show up (also Sr). It all depends on when someone went to that school.

And then the year has to be shown for active classes. It's a very small list for all the schools I've been researching using the regular CC search system HERE

Click Illinois, then Alton. Notice the THREE different spellings of your school: Alton, Alton Senior and Alton Sr. Obviously each person has their own idea of what it should be. They are ALL correct.

Also notice that the list is quite small and much more valuable than the way searches are done now.

Instant searches with NO misses - except that some are empty schools that were never finished. A lot more precise than FBCC search.

Well that was actually fun (if you wanna call it that). Smile You just threw at me the most complex mess I've seen yet.

Bottom line, as Jack stated, there were 3 unique Alton listings in the database, all being the exact same Alton. Furthermore, under these 3 Altons there were 3 classes of 1974. Only 1 of the 74s was real. The other were 2 poor people who joined the wrong Alton on the app under the 2nd Alton listing. And the final Alton had 0 members in the class of 1974, due to somebody attempting to join the app and not completing the join process. I can certainly see why.

Even if all of that made no sense it really doesn't matter, because the bottom line is now there is only 1 "Alton Senior High School" and there are 16 classes correctly categorized under it. It is now impossible to join either of the other 2 Altons, as they no longer exist.

Just FYI, what's really great about this example you just provided is I sat right here with a programmer and on the fly created tools to allow the Support people to make changes like this in the future, NOT the programers. And believe me there's a whole lot of value in that. You're all set here.

Whew! Smile Coffee break!

Oh by the way the way the system currently works master, photo, then, now, and yearbook photo aren't considered gallery photos. Go into Edit Profile Mode. You'll see you have zero photos uploaded. Gallery photos appear in a separate area of your Profile. They're much larger than the little photo thumbs at the top of the Profile.

There are two Roswell NM High Schools listed. "ROSWELL HIGH" and "ROSWELL". Our school is Roswell High School, Roswell NM. The other High School in Roswell NM is Goddard High School, Roswell NM. Goddard was first used in 1966 and is still used today. Roswell High School was the original High School in Roswell, NM and is also still in use today.

Please make these corrections.

Thank you Brad. Yes, the school listed in Plainedge, NY is the same school as the Plainedge in Massapequa. It is the Class of 72. I assume it can be merged without "losing" the class? I don't know why they come up as being in Plainedge, NY.

When I entered Sammamish High School, the name that shows up is "Sammamish, Bellevue, Washington." Which is correct, however, how can I tell that this is OUR class website? We are the Class of 1961. There are at least two other Sammamish High School classes on ClassCreator (classes of 1962 and 1963). Should the name of our school be changed to:
"Sammamish High School Class of 1961, Bellevue, Washington," to distinguish it from the other two sites?

Thanks!

There are two choices for our school Guilderland in the dropdown, image attached.
I think the misspelled one was my test attempt - or perhaps someone else's attempt.

I don't think it is active - can you delete that one? I'm sure it will confuse some folks. I know I tried it just to see what would happen.... I was the only one attached to it!

Once that is cleaned up, I'll select the option to make Class Connection live for our class.

Many thanks!

I removed the misspelled school. This is very important:

Please do exactly this:

1) Log into Facebook, click Settings, Apps, and delete Class Connection.
2) Activate the Class Connection app under your class web site Preference's page
3) Log into your class web site and click the "Class Connection" link under Member Functions.
4) Click the blue Join Class button, and accept the app permissions.

You are now connected to the right class.

I think I need another "reset". I saw my CC photo on the "join" page in FB, but when I accepted the access, got the message proceeding to class page, but instead I received the join page again without my photo. I was using IE browser.

I removed the app from FB again and tried it from Firefox, but I didn't get the CC info, just the join page without any identifying photo.

thanks for your help.

Without going back into the app at all first, you need to do exactly this (if you go back in right now before doing the below you'll bind with the wrong school again):

1) Log into Facebook, click Settings, Apps, and delete Class Connection.
2) Log into your class web site and click the "Class Connection" link under Member Functions.
3) Click the blue Join Class button, and accept the app permissions.

You are now connected to the right class. I removed the incorrect class name so once you've completed the above, nobody else can ever join the wrong school again.
