A bit of bugfixing

Earlier this week, the Technically Motivated team became aware of some back-end bugs on our site that had affected various elements of our sidebar and made it difficult to make updates to our site layout. After some investigation, the bugs were traced down to a plugin we at Technically Motivated had been using for many years, to provide our visitors and members with a friendly, “what you see is what you get”-style comment box.

As a result of this bug, comment boxes were stripped down to small, basic text fields while we looked at a solution. We are pleased to state that we have now found an alternative plugin; and you will now once again be able to post comments on our site with all the visual splendour you like, in full confidence that what you see really is what you’ll get. The same plugin also applies to our newly-migrated Forum, and has allowed us to introduce many more features to allow our users to customise their posts as they like.

In other news, we have begun public testing of a new Private Messaging system, which registered and logged in members to our site can now try out through the “Private Messaging” link under Social, or by visiting https://www.technicallymotivated.com/social/private-messaging/ directly. This system also uses Browser Notifications to inform you of newly-received messages, if you have enabled the feature in your browser for our site. We hope to improve visibility of this feature in the coming weeks; and look forward to your feedback on how you find using it 🙂
