[News Boquete] Making Chiriqui.Life's audio podcasts more accessible -- Index of Chiriqui.Life audio podcasts

With the increasing numbers of audio podcasts that are published on the Chiriqui.Life (CL) website, some visitors at CL tell us that they have difficulty finding the podcast that they are interested in. There typically are two main reasons behind their difficulty.

The most common reason is that in order to see the postings about the audio podcasts you must be a registered member of CL, and logged in. Easily the largest percentage of the inquiries that CL management receives is because the person is not a registered CL member. That issue is easily fixed by registering on CL, which is free. Simply click on the "Sign Up" icon in the upper right corner of the home page, and after completing a few questions, then your registration will be reviewed, and then you will receive an email confirming your registration. Again, there is no cost involved in using CL.

The second most common reason is that people sometimes have difficulty locating the content of interest. The software application used for CL is very sophisticated. And there is a LOT of content, literally thousands of topics and many more thousands of replies. CL uses a "community bulletin board" structure (as opposed to a blog structure) to organize its content. The bulletin board approach means simply that content is put into folders (forums) within categories based on the subject matter. [The blog approach basically is a dart board in which everything goes into one bucket and gets "pushed down" onto a stack as new content is posted.]

Because of the high interest in the audio podcasts on CL, the management has tried to make the audio podcasts more accessible (more visible). At the very top of the CL homepage are four pinned and highlighted topics. The fourth of those pinned and highlighted topics is an index of all of the audio podcasts that have been published on CL.

For your convenience, below is the current index of all audio podcasts that have been published on CL as of this date.

But again, remember, the below hotlinks will only work for registered members of CL. Non-members will get an error message to the effect that they do not have permission to view the desired content.
