Our developers were hard at work over the holiday weekend with several fixes and site enhancements.
- The most exciting enhancement is a fix to our citation encoding which improves compatibility with WordPress blogs. This means WordPress users no longer need to use the workaround we introduced last May. We actually made several behind-the scenes improvements to the encoding system which should make it more resilient and work with more different systems.
- We’ve added a News feed to the main page, so you can easily see when announcements are made here on ResearchBlogging.org News.
- When you log in to your account, you’ll find that the menu configuration in the “My Blogs” box has changed to put the most-accessed feature, “create citation” on top. We also fixed a bug that caused a blogger’s preferred category tags not to be selected when creating a new citation.
- We also fixed a bug in our RSS feeds that was pointed out to us by an alert reader. Our RSS scanner is now more robust and should be less susceptible to this sort of problem in the future.
We rely on our readers and users to alert us to potential problems and offer suggestions for improving the site — and we’d love to hear from you. You can offer suggestions and ask for help in our support forums. Or, make a comment on a relevant post in ResearchBlogging.org News. Or email us at email@example.com.
