BlogBuilder Update

We have released a new version of BlogBuilder today on blogs.warwick.ac.uk. This new version is mainly a bug fix release, tidying up some loose threads that have been hanging over the past few months. However, there are a few improvements that users may notice:

  • We have upgraded our image editing software to the latest version. This should offer increased quality and usability when using this feature. Read more about image editing
  • The code that runs at the backend of lookups for music, books, DVDs and games has also been upgraded, so writing reviews should be improved. FAQ
  • When writing a comment, clicking the preview button will show the correct number of your comment, and will also show you all previous comments - so you can refer back and quote previous comments, and also see if there have been new comments since you started writing FAQ
  • We have also upgraded a lot of core libraries included in Blogbuilder, which should hopefully improve performance for users

Comments, bugs and suggestions can be posted on this entry or the blogs forum

Update 9th Nov: These features have been postponed until further notice

Update 2 15th Nov: These features have been re-deployed with problems with blog forms and comments hopefully resolved

    Is this why I can’t log-in to WB any more??? “Username/Password not found”...

    No, although it does seem to be the reason why comments aren’t appearing on some views :)

    I still can’t login. Is it probably to do with WGA?

    Yes. I meant to write an FAQ page for this, but WGA users should always try and log into the WGA website first, so to speak. We pass authentication details for users to the WGA, which tells us whether the user is valid or not – unless there has been a serious change in the way this link works (without telling us!) anyone who is able to log in on the WGA website should be able to log in with the same details here.

  5. I have never been able to log into the WGA site properly. :(
