New Features
« on: September 30, 2015, 07:14:18 PM »
Let's see if I remember them all.

Popup notifications for new/unread posts and PMs.
Unread Posts link in the main bar (let me know if you don't see it)
Contact page in the main bar.
Gallery link in the main bar.
Staff Page (not sure how useful this will be)
And lastly, some Twitter integration. Again, not sure how useful this will be. It will require tweaking I am sure.

How are the new features treating people? Anyone have any issues with them?

The day you posted about the new features, I saw a popup for someone "replying" to me in a thread  I never posted in... I havn't seen another popup since.

Hmmm odd. I've only seen them to threads I've replied to. Or started.

Just got a popup for this one, so maybe it does work after all?

I've gotten some popups for threads I posted in (and was replied to) years ago,  and some I think I've never posted in as well (when I get them like that I'll get a whole heap at once)
The boggosity of the universe tends towards maximum.

Not sure if anyone has noticed, but there are two new additions to the menu bar, Fanfics and Knowledge Base. They both are currently empty.

I think the Fanfic can be a nice repository/archive of older fiction. No need to wade through numerous posts to find what you want.

And the KB could be an alternative to the wiki.

I've also made the Download link a menu drop. It links to all of the current download utilities.

And now the grand question: how do we add to both categories?

For Fanfics, hover over the menu item until My Fanfics shows, then click. There should be a button on that screen to "Add story".

KB, on the left side, Add Article.

I think you need to set the permissions first, because the KB outright tells me that I can't do anything in it.

You are not seeing the menu in the attachment?

Now I do, but not before.

Giving out full Admin access to the KB might be a bit much.

Well, the fanfic section seems to be broken. To submit a story you must select a category and a rating, but currently no options exist for either.
