What's New in Nerd Glasses



Sometimes you have to think big and sometimes you just have to focus on the little things that only the true community nerd can appreciate.  And so it is with this month's release, which we are affectionately calling "Nerd Glasses".


What's new:


1. Support for Forum Avatars


You can now upload unique avatars per forum to visually distinguish each forum in your forum directory,

2.  New Forum Directory Widget


This was a big oversight on our part and it has finally been rectified.  There is now a standard Forum Directory widget that allows you to promote your directory anywhere on your site.

3.  Enhanced Notification Emails


We've vastly improved the formatting of all emails sent by Hoop.la.  But aside from looking much nicer, you'll find more pertinent information. We've also changed the way we handle the CSS in these emails so that even if you view them in a web-based email client (like Gmail), you'll actually see all of the prettiness.

4.  Improved Content Moderation Queue


We've significantly enhanced the experience when using the content moderation queue.  Aside from a more appealing visual look, you can now take bulk actions to approve, deleted and delete + ban user for content in your moderation queue.

5.  Now You Can Edit Content in the Moderation Queue


Your content moderation queue is where you review/approve content that has either been reported by your community members or that has been triggered by a moderation rule you created.  Sometimes you may want to edit that content before you approve it.. and now you can do just that!  Your content management admins can edit any content WHILE it is in the moderation queue. 


6.  No more "Powered By" in HTML Titles


Your HTML titles are important from an SEO standpoint and we've made them less cluttered by removing the "Powered By Hoop.la" note that we were appending to each page title.  


That's a summary of the major changes, but as usual there are dozens of other minor tweaks, improvements, and bug fixes.  If you are following a support topic that contains a suggestion that is implemented or an issue that is resolved by something in this release, please note that we always post updates to each topic to let you know.


Enjoy Nerd Glasses! It has been rolled out to all Hoop.la sites.
