This Week in devot:ee #93 - October 31, 2013
October 31, 2013
by Ryan Masuga
This week we added semi-private lists and support forum notifications for developers in the header bar.
Per a user suggestion, we added a new semi-private list type. These lists will not show up anywhere where we might make public lists available in the future, but you can share the URL with anyone who needs to see the list.
Support Notifications for Developers in the Header
Per another user suggestion we added support forum notifications to the header for developers. A developer would normally get an email for any forum they're monitoring for support, but some devs have found the email inconsistent or not convenient enough. With the new notifications, a dev can just visit any page on devot:ee to see if they have any new support threads or any posts that they haven't responded to. Just like checking for any other type of site notification, look to see if the globe at the upper right of the page is glowing. We hope that makes support better for everyone.
