Getting an email yesterday for Giant Squids, it broke my heart and turned it blue. Why is it that every time I like something it is taken away?
More than a year ago, Squidoo introduced the Page Break module for the Giant Squids to try out. Since I am one of those lensmasters who tend to write very long lenses, this was ideal. I started with my ever-growing lensography and broke it down into pages. Since then I have done a number of lenses with page breaks. My latest one with my Squid Angel of Zazzle lens, with the idea for this one to have the main information of being a Squid Angel and what I would be looking for. Then the following pages would be those who I blessed for certain months.
Now Squidoo is doing away with the Page Break module. In the information given, we have a week to change our lenses or create new lenses. That really doesn't give much time.
The Squid team stated that nothing would be lost on these lenses. The page breaks would be turned into text modules. Of course, where I have throughout links to the other pages won't make any sense and will have to be taken out.
Last night I decided to start making new lenses, starting with the one I thought would be the easiest. My Squid Angel of Zazzle has two additional page breaks for the months of Feb./March and April/May. I created a new lens for Feb. and March blessings. If it was going as easy as transferring the information from one lens to another, that would be great. However, it is not, modules need to be recreated, though the information can be copied into those modules. After two wasted hours with my new lens and foreseeing many more hours of work involved, I deleted the new lens.
I think I will just let them be for now and fix them or break them off into other lenses if need be down the road. It is not like these lenses are getting heavy traffic as is anyway.
These are some of the lenses. With over 260 lenses, if is hard to find all of them. Read them before they are changed. Give me suggestions on how to break these up into smaller lenses too.
