We would like to welcome you to the new and improved Golden Age of Gaia website. We have updated the website software to improve your surfing experience, as well as increasing the cyber security of the blog.
Visitors using the site on mobile devices will notice improved layout, speed and functionality.
We have also been able to streamline the platform so that the site’s speed has improved tremendously.
We wanted to help make your experience with our new design as pleasant as possible. Some folks have sent in questions about the new design, and other aspects of the Golden Age of Gaia, so we thought we create a Frequently Asked Questions for using the website. This list will expand as questions come in.

A: In recent months, many websites and internet service providers have tightened up security to avoid the risk of cyber hacking. We updated the blog platform in an effort to protect the content from cyber attack, but also to provide users with a safer experience.
Many things, such as your web browser, internet service provider, firewall settings, “cookie” handling and virus protection can interfere with access to the blog. If you can view the blog on a mobile device, then it is most likely your browser, ISP or a computer protection program that is causing the issue.
If you have the ability, take your computer to a web hot spot and see if you can access the site.

Q: I love the option to print articles from Golden Age of Gaia to read later, but sometimes the text print is very small and I cannot read it. How do I fix this?
A: The “Print Friendly” option is a wonderful way of saving articles to read later. Using this option, you can either print, create a PDF file, or email the article to your inbox or to a friend. The Print Friendly button is located at the bottom of every blog post.
If you click on the small green Print Friendly icon, it will lead you to an editing panel, which will appear in front of the blog page you wish to print. At the top of the editing panel, you have the option of removing images, by checking a box. You can also alter the size of the text in the drop down box at the top. Setting the text to 130% produces a very readable version of the article once it is printed.
Q: Please explain how to use the “Print Friendly” program on the blog.
In addition to the information provided in the question above, you can use Print Friendly to download PDF versions of blog articles right to your desktop. You can also send yourself, or friends, email reminders and excerpts of blog posts you wish to read in the future. This saves you from bookmarking articles, or having to search for them at a future time, as the links are delivered right to your email box.
You can choose to create a PDF version to download to your desktop. After clicking the Print Friendly icon at the bottom of the blog post, and bringing up the text editor, simply click on the PDF creation button. The program will prompt you to select a page size. Then you can download the file to your computer, which you can either save on your disk or use a program like Adobe Reader or Foxit to read it on your own computer.
If you chose to use the Print Friendly program to send an email reminder to yourself about a blog article you wish to read at a future date, you simply click on the green Print Friendly icon to bring up the text editor. The program will ask you to input your email address and that of the receiver. It may also ask you to input a short captcha code, that it will display on the text editor screen, to deter spamming of this function. An article excerpt, with a link to the full article, will then be forwarded to the email box you indicated.
Q: I want to send an article from Golden Age of Gaia to a friend, via email. How do I do this?
A: Readers can use the Print Friendly icon at the bottom of every blog post to send emails about the articles. Simply click on the print friendly icon at the bottom of the page to start the emailing process.
In the top task bar of the print friendly editors panel is an icon button for email. A secondary window will pop up. The user can then add their email to the send box, the email of the recipient and edit the message section as desired. Click send and the email will be delivered to your destination, along with a link to the Golden Age of Gaia article you wish to share with a friend.
Q: I want to look up all the articles from a specific author or channel. How do I do this?
