Major site update August 2011

Posted by Chris Merkord , in Updates 16 August 2011 · 1,516 views

A software version update for the site has been scheduled for later this week. This update will take the site offline for up to a few hours. Our staff will work to accomplish this update as quickly as possible to minimize disruption. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The new version of the site will feature many enhancements to features, usability, and overall look. We are excited to bring you these updates, and hope you like them.

After the update is complete and the site is back online, there may be some features or pages that do not work as intended. We will keep our eyes out for these problems and fix them as they become apparent. We have opted for this strategy rather than the alternative: to take the site offline for several days while we thoroughly test every feature. Given the growing number of users in public and private forums on OE, we feel the first option is the way to go.

If you encounter any problems, please let us know. Comments positive or negative are welcome below.

Once this major update is complete, we will begin work on our next phase of development: increasing language compatibility for Spanish and Portuguese, and potentially adding other language options. Stay tuned for a future blog entry on the language updates.

The update has been completed. We will continue to fix minor problems generated by the update as we find them. If you notice anything not working the way it should, just respond to this blog entry or leave a note in the Site Feedback forum. Or course we'll accept positive feedback as well as negative ;-)

One bug that has become apparent has to do with the new "tagging" system in the forums. To see what I'm talking about, check out the Meetings forum. Next to some of the topic titles are tags that let you know which meeting a topic refers to. When you click on the tag it should show you all the other topics with that tag, but it doesn't. A forthcoming update will fix the bug (but probably not until after the next big membership drive).
