    Hello Members and Guests,

    Lately, I have joined with Wild Apricot, our award-winning Toronto based software provider, to incorporate the most current Member and Financial Data safety features into the Maine Alliance for Road Associations (MARA) Website.

    I invite you to try the powerful new "forum search" feature on our Home page. This software is  mobile phone friendly. Accessibility has been improved. Posting on our Discussion Forum is easier; results are more consistent.  I am still learning the features of our new software and will probably introduce additional changes in the months to come.

    Betsy Bowen, our founder and mentor, continues her support of our activities. Betsy, the MARA Team and I pledge to continue to provide you with up-to-date, useful information for Road Association Formation, Administration and Private Road Maintenance.

    Please let us know what you think and what we can do to improve your experience while using the MARA Website.

    Thank you, This looks great. Something for my wish list is that there be a topic search option. It feels like the questions get repeated multiple times over the course of the years. If we had a search option for topics maybe that would reduce the duplicating.

    Excellent suggestion. Thank you. Try putting the key words of your topic of interest into the Forum Search field. I'd be interested in your results.

    Yes, I just tried that and it worked.  Has that search by key word option always been available or just with this new website?

    Great! So glad it worked.

    When I updated our software recently, I replaced the more general "Google Search" field that did pick up some information in our Forum with a more specific "Site-search" Gadget and then narrowed its focus to the Forum Pages. This new search field may not have been available in the older software.

    The improvements to our website is greatly appreciated. Thank you.  Just curious, do you know why the web developer uses cookies on our website?
