We just posted a few features and a few tweaks that we hope you’ll all enjoy.
Watched Threads – now you can watch threads and see what other people are watching. You’ll notice a new icon in the tools bar of each post when it’s just a pair of glasses, you can click on it to add a thread to your watched threads page, if it’s got a red circle with a stripe through it, you can use it to remove the thread. The link to the watched threads page can be found in your profile page it’s labeled “[more]” and there’s an RSS feed listed there too.
Permalinks – We’ve also added permalinks to all of the posts in the Post view page, you can link directly to a post in any page of a thread by clicking on the “#” at the end of the post’s subject line. There’s one unfortunate side effect of this and it’s that the guids are now broken on the RSS feeds, We're sorry about that, but we think it was worth it, they shouldn’t break again, and now they are actually pointers to the content instead of the top level of the thread.
RSS – true to our nature, we’ve added quite a few RSS feeds to the site, the four that we can remember off hand are:
- The homepage RSS feed, added in the title bar after labeled “What we’re watching.”
- The watched threads feed, after the more link on the user profile pages on the “Watched Threads” title bar.
- The user posts feed, after the more link on the user profile pages on the “latest posts” title bar.
- The search feed, now you can keep track of your searches with an RSS aggregator. Hopefully this one won’t take us down.
Let us know if we added one that we forgot about. Hope you guys enjoy these features, we’re still cranking on more.
