Avatar vs. Profile Photos
Instead of using your avatar photo, now all sections of the site use your Profile photo. The software has been updated to crop rather than stretch the photo to fit. To access your Profile and add your image, click on your username at the upper right and select My Profile.
The calendar has a few new options. One is a "download as iCal" link at the bottom. Along with that link is one for the RSS feed of the calendar for those of you using RSS readers. Finally, you can set up an event on the calendar with a RSVP function. Clicking the "Add Event" button allows you to add your mess-about, meeting or other event. To enable RSVP for the event, simply check off the appropriate box.
The chat room has been fixed!
The new editor is an adaptation of the popular CKEditor. It has some nice features:
- Change edit mode, from WYSIWYG to plain text, by clicking the "Toggle Edit Mode" icon (top row, left).
- Autosave - designed to prevent losing your long post if something happens. Refresh the page, and most of your content will reload
- My Media button - to insert photos, videos, etc. you have uploaded previously in a new post
- Special BB Code button ... to the left of the "Font" box ... has additional formatting options
