Important Announcement to All Registered Users 01.02.20 – Forum Etiquette & Annoucements – Expats Portugal Forum

Welcome to the Expats Portugal forum!

Since 2005, this forum has had over 6,000 people sign up and take part in our community.

It is a place for people who want to move to Portugal and for those already living here to meet and share knowledge through our community.

With the recent revamp of the site, we have chosen to keep the forum on the website rather than create a social media group as we know there are people concerned about privacy and who owns their data. Plus there is a wealth of information from the years gone by that we did not want to lose.

But this forum is nothing without your input. So come on in, take a look around, ask questions and answer a few.

If you are a forum member from the old site and have not reset your password yet, please head over to the My Account section and reset your password today.

[Sticky] Important Announcement to All Registered Users 01.02.20

Hello All,

As you have probably noticed, we have now launched the new site and forum. We still have a lot of 'post launch' work to do to add more content to the site and re-organise the forum.

The details of all previously registered members have been transferred across to the new site but you will need to reset your password in order to post on the forum and place an advert in the Buy, Swap, Sell, Wanted, For Rent section. You should have received an email with a new password link. Alternatively, from the main site, click on My Account, then under the green Log In, enter the username or email associated with your account and you can then request a new password to be sent to you via email.

We will issue further details on the new site next week but in the meantime please contact us if you have any issues with access.

Kind regards

Thanks for taking this on and keeping the forum going.

Question. On the old style forum there was a button for "new posts" that let me see only posts that have been added since my last visit. Can this be introduced here?

Hello Ian,

Thanks for your comments.

When you are on the forum pages, there is a button on the top bar - Recent Posts - and this will give you the most recent posts in descending date order.  Also if you subscribe to a post, you will receive an email alert when that post has been updated.

I don't think we can create a list of new posts since last visit but I'll investigate and revert. Thanks for the suggestion.
