Testing Status Updates feature

WisTex's picture

We just added the ability for administrators and other authorized users to add statuses to pages on the website, serving as a sort of change log of any major changes.

We are still working on visibility of the status updates, and will decide after further testing who can see the updates and where.

Visibility Changes

We decided to setup the visibility of the update notes in the following manner.

  • Change Log Verbose - Publicly visible.
  • Developer Log - Must be logged in to see updates.
  • Update Notes (on individual pages) - Hidden by default. Logged in users can make it visible by enabling Update Notes in their user profile.

We decided to hide the Update Notes on individual pages by default, because typically only power users would be interested in what changes have been made to an article. That way it does not clutter up the page for people who don't want to see it.
