Updates deployed to the Connect production servers as a result of the code sprint that ended 18 February 2014.

User Facing: Desktop

  • Added "previous" and "next" buttons to posts that users navigate to via their personal workspace. These buttons allow users to review posts in their workspace more efficiently.
  • Added the popular social networking site Reddit to the list of options that are available to users who like to share Connect content with their social circle.
  • Added the ability for Blog Administrators to add a graphical promotion to the right column of their blog pages.
  • Added the ability for Blog Administrators to enable short-form-RSS that syndicates a blog's summary (instead of the full text of the blog) and a link users can follow back to Connect to read the full post.
  • Fixed a caching issue that was hiding links to translated versions of posts from anonymous users.
  • Added the ability for post-by-email group members to submit posts using the BCC line in their email client.
  • Modified code that manages post-by-email submissions to check the "I need a solution" option, by default, on post submission.
