User Facing: Desktop

  • Modified our spam detection code so it would not allow spammers to avoid detection by successfully entering a word phrase (captcha).
  • Modified the permalinks on comments to include the more useful thread Title (instead of the comment timestamp) when bookmarking.
  • Changed the color of the thumbs down voting widget from green back to red.
  • Tested the content counter to ensure it would work after submissions hit the 1,000,000 mark.
  • Added image rotation to home page hero region.
  • Updated the blog list pages to display, by default, blogs in the user's currently selected language.
  • Fixed an issue in the user registration form that was pre-selecting the first options in each of the fields as default input. Selected options are now "Choose one" which should result in more accurate data collection.

Admin Facing

  • Created an admin tool that gives permissioned users the ability to update the badges on a target post.
