New Features + Changes

Discussion in 'Blog' started by Chad, Jun 22, 2009.

  1. New Features

    Bible


    The Bible online (click Bible on top menu) has been improved. I have changed the look of it to have a classic, Old English feel to it as if you are ready right from the physical Bible itself). Feedback welcomed.

    Bible online is also available now right below the live chat, so you can use it for reference when doing bible studies in the live chat with others.

    Also added a mini bible search pop-up window link next to the Title field when posting a new thread or a new reply.

    Member Blogs

    The journal system has now been converted over to the Blog system. All content imported as well. The blog is as you can see, in the navigation menu now. You can create your own blog and posts as you wish. No links allowed, no images allowed.

    Arcade

    20 new games in the arcade. Categories reduced down to 12 simple categories as well.

    Twitter

    You can now submit (aka "tweet") a thread to your Twitter account.

    Steps to Activate Twitter Feature:

    • Go to your user panel ("User CP" in the menu)
    • Click Edit Options
    • Scroll down, fill in your Twitter account details.
    • When viewing thread, click Thread Options menu and click Tweet This Thread
    My Shelfari / MixPod / Tangle

    New tab in member profiles area called My Shelfari. Visit Welcome to Shelfari! Read, Share, Explore! - Shelfari to create your free bookshelf account (very nice visuals/interface).

    Steps to Activate My Shelfari Feature:

    • Go to your user panel ("User CP" in the menu)
    • Click Edit Details
    • Scroll down, fill in your Shelfari account details
    Note: you can do the same in that area for your own Tangle (formerly GodTube) video and MixPod mp3 player that show up in your profile when activated. Shelfari tab will display your own bookshelf collection!

    Visit my profile for examples of all 3 (Shelfari Tab, MixPod mp3 player and Tangle Video).

    • latest created photo albums
    Forum Thread Thumbnails

    The Streaming Media forum now displays mini thumbnails per thread for a nicer visual and preview of what the video post is.

    WYSIWYG Editor Toolbar Enhancements

    Added two new features for members to use.


    1. ESV Bible
      • Post a Bible verse such as John 3:16, highlight it and click the Bible icon. This will show the entire verse in ESV translation with a small audio icon to hear it in mp3 as well. Feel free to test it out here in this thread.
    2. Background Highlighter
      • Click the last icon in the editor toolbar (the highlighter) after actually highlighting text you want to apply a purple background to.
    ESV Bible Icon: [​IMG]
    Highlighter Icon: [​IMG]

    [HIGH-LIGHT]This is an example of the highlighted text, mainly used to emphasize a point and catch audience's attention on a particular point.[/HIGH-LIGHT]

    Coming Soon...

    • Send a gift (like Facebook)
    • Multimedia Center (videos, mp3's) with comments

  9. Heeyyy Chad

    Chad,
    I really appreciate your time and effort to run this chatroom and thread post and blog. Hats off to you. And keeping the security in check, I could not even come close. The reason I do not use the blog is because you state,The journal system has now been converted over to the Blog system. All content imported as well. The blog is as you can see, in the navigation menu now. You can create your own blog and posts as you wish. No links allowed, no images allowed.
    No pictures no links? I'd like to do a blog at your site but I find it easier to do it at blogspot or wordpress where I can do both where both give an abuse button to inform whoever of the the material. Maybe your offering it to people who do not have access to either of the two. Or maybe you can quaratine the blogger allowing him to blog?
    I dont know.
    But thank you for this chatroom and please take the above as positive input.
     
  10. Beautiful Bible Quotes!!

    One of many favorites is John3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life!"
     
  11. hi, Soniai, t's my the first memory verse that I've learnt
     
  12. Thanks brother chad:)
