Site Stuff Mike

 
Posted

a topic to log  soul source site improvements and moderation

this is an announcement type topic, please start a new topic for q's and/or comments on the below

 

events

Improvements have been made to all event comment highlight boxes on the soul source front page, forum page, the event index page

They now show distinct event comments, as in they will just show a single latest comment from each event, this will hopefully help lessen the flooding of event comments issues.

For now a general 'all in' comment block covers all the various section index pages

activity feed

Members following content notification switched off in the activity feed - this was an automatic thing reporting an automatic thing that never really added any value to the feature

personal messages

a new layout format of the inbox has been recently switched on

https://www.soul-source.co.uk/messenger/

activity feed

the activity 'When a member reacts to something' has been switched off in the activity feeds for a trial to see if it improves the quality/usefulness of the feed

 

events

the 'hot!' highlight that shows on some events listings now takes into account the actual event # of rsvps, # of views and # of comments

forums

archives moved out of freebasing to main index - improve layout of forum indexes - one level of sub-forums

sales forums

new ebay newsletter forum setup - improve the 'mint sub' forum - as the daily email ebay newsletter posts now have own separate place
