Minor Updates

Discussion in 'Blog' started by Chad, Dec 18, 2008.

  1. Greetings Everyone,

    Some updates recently.

    Added Two New Games Today:

    Animal Connect Mahjong
    Buzz Words

    Bible Characters' Profiles
    Brief biography on bible characters, right now 64 available. Link available under Bible menu up top. Access directly via this link

    My Mood

    Just a little visual feature to your profile that allows you to set your mood. Found under control panel > edit mood (left column)

    Reminder

    SMS feature is here and has been. Not sure who is or how many are using it but you can find it in your control panel > edit sms area (left column). Send a text message (via cellular) to any member worldwide. That member (recipient) must have the feature enabled on their side in order you to send to them. Worldwide cellular carriers supported.

    RECAP OF LAST BLOG POST (Oct 03, 2008)

    Bible Tagger

    Anytime you move your mouse over a Scripture verse such as this example (don't be shy, try it!) John 3:16 it automatically pops-up a small yellow window showing you that actual verse, with an option to view the entire verse range via Bible Gateway (opens a new window/tab so you don't lose your Talk Jesus place).

    My Music & My Video

    Two new blocks in the right side column of member profiles. Members can go to their control panel > edit details are (scroll all the way down) to add any Godtube.com video and any mp3 streaming link (i.e., SermonAudio.com is a great place for mp3 streaming).

    Visit my profile Talk Jesus for an example of the MP3 player block and video player block.

    Drafts

    This feature allows you to save a draft copy of your post/thread when using Quick Reply, New Reply, New Thread and Private Messaging. When writing a message you can choose to save it and return to it later without publically publishing it.

    Drafts are saved and restored in the following manner. One new thread per forum, one reply per thread, one PM reply per PM and one new PM. If a saved post/thread/PM is found, the text is automatically restored to the reply field when the user returns to the page. So to restore a thread, you simply visit the New Thread page in the forum in which it was being written, it will be there waiting.

    To remove old draft data which has not been deleted by its author, a scheduled task runs daily which removes any drafts data which is older than X days.

    ShareThis

    Already live, its a popular social bookmarking tool to share whatever page you're on, with contacts from other social sites such as myspace, facebook, yahoo, msn, hi5, etc. Its a good way to drive traffic to this site, and therefore reaching out to many - some even unsaved.

    Slideshow Presentations

    To be posted/viewed in the streaming multimedia forum, I already posted two so far. If you haven't seen then, go to the streaming multimedia forum and you'll find them. I won't tell you which ones to look for ;) Originally requested by Br.Bear to add Tommy's Windows slideshows a while ago, this is step 1 to do that. I will eventually create a sub-forum under Entertainment forum called Slideshows.

    Mutual Friends

    Similar to Facebook's mutual friends. Its a member block found on the right column of profile view. It is automatically populated of course.

    Social Group Email

    This will allow social group owners to send an email to all members of a social group.

    Note: If a social group member has elected not to receive emails from other members or is invited to a group and has not accepted yet, they will not receive emails sent using this modification.

    Forums Directory

    Forum Directory extra perk for the site. It will show the forums as a directory (like a sitemap).

    Arcade

    15 new arcade games.

    Glossary (improved/new features)

    The online bible glossary that we had has been replaced entirely with a newer one. Please click the link under the Bible menu up top (one for Glossary, another for Maps). The interface is much nicer, easier to browse and you can actually search the glossary database as well. Cross-linking is enabled also. You can also search via the forum's default search feature on top menu of course under "Search" menu option.​
    Scriptural Answers Forum
    Scriptural Answers - Talk Jesus

    It now has an alphabet menu up top to browse quickly all topics by the letter selected.

    example: to view the topic on Sabbath, click the S letter. It will display all threads/topics that begin with the letter S.

    ***/// Contacts Importer ///***

    This is a major advantage to this ministry.

    Talk Jesus - Contacts / Friends Importer

    Contacts importer allows you to invite literally all your contacts from Outlook or webmail (full info in the link above) in just a couple of clicks. A great, very easy way to bring people to this site in one simple method. Please use it and invite everyone on your contacts. It's safe, secure and extremely easy to use. Try it and you will see.
