User Profiles, Forum & Comment Tweaks

Support Guide's picture

Today we were really busy making some changes on user profiles, account creation, comments and forums. We made a lot of progress.

We hope you come and join us by creating an account and participating on the website.

Some of the things we did:

  1. Add more fields to the user profile, to customize the user experience and enhance user profiles.
  2. Created three account types: personal, official and industry leader.
  3. Customize how comments display in the forums and throughout the website.
  4. Added badges so that Administrators and other special user accounts stand out.
  5. Tweaked the user interface is several places.

Time flew today, but I think we got some great things done.  More to come!

More Tweaking

We did a little more tweaking to the interface this weekend, trying to fix all the little annoying things that are bugging me.  I am pretty happy with the design so far, but there are still a lot of tweaks I want to make.  But overall, it is coming along nicely.

Signatures More Prominent

One thing that we did in this update was make the forum signatures more prominent, while trying to make it obvious that the signature was not part of the post.  Your signature, which you can set in your account profile, is now displayed at the bottom of your forum posts and comments throughout the website.  

Staff members, and special accounts will be labeled with badges to make them stand out from a regular user's post.  For example, posts I make will have an Administrator badge on them.

Gravatar Support

I forgot to mention, we also added Gravatar support as well.  You can now upload your own avatar, or you can show your Gravatar instead.  

We typically recommend that people create a Gravatar because your Gravatar follows you onto many websites.  For example, WordPress uses Gravatar, and any comments you make on a WordPress blog will typically have your Gravatar shown next to your comment automatically.
