Throwing Some New Ingredients In The Stew: Technical Upgrades

Posted By John Arcadian On March 26, 2012 @ 10:40 am In Gnome Gnews | 3 Comments

We get reader feedback about the Stew regularly, and we listen to it. As a result of that feedback, and of our own internal efforts to continually improve Gnome Stew, we’ve just rolled out three technical upgrades: multiple login options, comment editing, and RSS feed improvements.

Log In With Facebook, Google, Twitter, Windows Live, and Yahoo

Comment Editing

It’s easy to make a typo or mess something up when typing out a comment, so we’ve upgraded our comment box to let you edit comments within a short time after posting them. Just click on the Click To Edit button after you’ve made the post.

Better RSS Feeds and Some Backend Issues Fixed

We’ve tackled a few technical issues on the backend of things and rooted out some kobold agents who were attempting to sabotage things for some of our international readers. While we were undoing the damage, we decided to upgrade our RSS feeds with better image coding. If your RSS reader of choice can display images, then you can see all the images in Gnome Stew Posts on your computer, phone, or other device.

Coming Soon… A New Look and Mobile Options

Our throwing new ingredients into the Stew doesn’t end here! We are currently working on two major upgrades: a reworked design for Gnome Stew that will make it easier to find and read the articles you need, and a mobile-ready site so that you can access the Stew on the go.

If you have feedback about the new upgrades (which are now live), future upgrades, or ideas for improving the site, please let us know in the comments.

If you do make a mobile-ready version, please make sure that the whole version is still accessable to mobile users. There are few things I dislike as much as losing features on a website just because I’m on my phone.

@evil – No worries — the full version will still be accessible from mobile devices once we roll out the mobile version. Most likely there will be a link to view the full version, but we may have other options.

I’ve seen a very early mobile beta, and it rocks on a phone. So much easier to read…
