We upgraded the data base program that manages our Find-a-Coach Directory

Better search coming (we hope!)

The good news about that is it should allow us to write a new search that would allow searching for more than one word in your profile. [ed note:  That kind of code is not in my current skill set.  But I’m working on learning it.  If you know anyone who is fluent in MySQL and PHP who could help with this task, please contact me.]

Update your profile

The bad news is that when the old data was moved into the new system, all bios were truncated to 1023 characters or about 150 words.   What ever came after the allotted number of characters is just gone.

So we suggest (strongly) that you log into the members area and check to see if your  listing is as you wish.  If you need instructions for how to get to your profile click here for step-by-step instructions (with pictures!)

Hey, maybe it’s been a while since you looked at it anyway.

  • Update it.
  • Check your email address and phone number.
  • AND above all the link to your website.

Remember, this directory listing is not meant to BE your website. Give some pertinent info: who you work with and why. Then direct the visitor to your website for the full story.

New niche fields included

We have added to each profile the ability to name three niches.

That means you can choose three of these niches to include in your bio. Again, we’re working on fully integrating these fields into the search possibilities.  That’s not quite in place yet. But you might as well get ready by updating your profile.

  • ADDults
  • College/Grad Students
  • Teens
  • Kids
  • Parents
  • Partners (nonADHD)
  • Couples
  • Organizing
  • Creatives
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Science/Engineering
  • Other/Professionals
  • Coach Mentoring

If you have other niches to suggest please use  the contact form. We’ll not necessarily add every single one. But if we get a reasonable number of requests, we’ll add them.
