Sep. 3rd Forum Upgrade--Lots of New Stuff!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

These are the cleaned up release notes for the update that just went live. I should add as many new features as you see here, there are as many if not more backend forum updates that make our lives easier as staff/moderators as well. This is a really great update to the software.


CK Editor Upgrade

I have posted a full, yet mostly concise, version of the notes on all the upgrades being made to the CK Editor in this article

 

To summarize the changes briefly:

 

1) Version upgrade with many minor fixes and compatibility improvements

2) "Quick" and "Advanced" mode switchable toolbar that shows most commonly used commands by default, with additional options behind a "More >" link. 

3) No right-click interrupt in "Quick" mode. Right-click interrupt is still there in "Advanced" mode for table and list editing. 

4) A "maximize" button that gives you a full-window editing canvas. 

5) Better WYSIWYG fidelity: the editing area will pull the stylesheet from your site to a greater extent than in the past, which means that "what you see" will be closer to "what you get" than ever before. 

6) Cleaner pastes: font size, line height, and background color will automatically be cleaned out when you paste content copied from a webpage. 

7) Font faces are no longer settable by the user.

 

Revert to Previous Version of a Post

1. Assuming you have permission to view the post history and edit the post, just follow the familiar "View History" link...

2. ...and you'll see the new post history view. Click "Revert to this version" and the published post will be replaced with that version.

Product Page Module Resorting

All product pages have the same features: reviews, lists, a guide (wiki), etc. 

 

In most categories, reviews are the most important thing. But some sites have some categories where the Guide is actually the most important thing. 

 

We now have the ability to re-sort these modules on a per-category basis, so that the most important thing is at the top. If you want the product Facts & Details to show up above the Reviews, we can do that. 

 

The sortable modules are:
1) Reviews
2) Members
3) Lists
4) Specs
5) Guide aka wiki

 

 

Inline Unsubscribes

 

Keeping your subscriptions well-pruned helps keep them relevant! That means removing stuff you don't want to follow anymore. 

 

You'll now find handy hover-controls for unsubscribing from things right in the subscribed threads page.

So, since they can do that, what will they do and when?  Or is there some way we can sort these things ourselves?  I didn't see it and there is no instruction in the announcement.

Sorry I pulled out the how part since it was more a backend thing. They can do it, but stay tuned for a post I'm going to make in the Ambassador forum within the next 30 minutes or so.

So what's with the new bold outline around some of the content sections of the resort page wiki? (And not others.) And the outline appears to be inconsistently applied (at least for my two resorts.)

I see a horizontal line break at the top of each section, but no outline. Could you send me a screenshot?
