December Project Update. Sorry for the Delay.
Posted on Dec 17, 2011 by bernd
I am back from almost 3 months break where I was buried in projects in my daytime job. Originally, I intended to do one project update each month and obviously did not keep up. I will try to be steadier in delivering this for 2012. The project got various additions which I worked on over the last couple of weekends. Below the new site features:
- Updated Design: The site design got a serious overhaul. All colors are less intense. Navigation changed to be simpler. Shortcut Tables changed to be better readable. Overall, I was trying to make everything more subtle and appealing.
- Search: There is now a search box available on the left top of the navigation. Simply press the 's' key to jump to the search. Right now it searches for application names and platforms. I do not yet have a full-text search.
- My Shortcuts: Once logged in, there is a ‘My Shortcuts’ feature accessible. Each shortcut page has a yellow favorite icon next to its heading. Simply click on the icon and the page will be added to your favorites and accessible in 'My Shortcuts'.
- Show User Contributions: Each user’s public profile now shows which pages have been contributed to date. This is also available under 'My Shortcuts'.
- Feedback Cleanup: I moved a lot of feedback from the general feedback page to the shortcut pages they are belonging. Also moved Site Suggestions to its place.
Thanks everybody for the continuing feedback. Many thanks also to all contributors to date for adding content. I am very appreciative on this and it keeps me motivated facilitating the infrastructure.
