VibeTalk Gets a New Look
There are a few new updates this month that are going toward a “using this site” document that will provide greater detail, as needed. Here are screenshots of the main screen and the admin interface:
The theme is based on the latest in CSS2 and for those of you using the FireFox browser, a somewhat better administration screen. Posts are collapsable, areas of web pages can be repositioned (more of this for casual users to come later) and you can view sophistocated slideshows and fully 3d panoramas of photos without loading a seperate program.
- User and Post Levels – Each user can be level 0-10, which represents increasing priority and specific sets of roles. Visitors are level 0 and registered users are level 1 (also known as a Subscriber).
- Email Subscriptions – To manage email updates on specific topics or to remove yourself from any mailing list, remember to visit your subscriptions settings.
- Gravitar Support – for those with an avitar icon registered at http://www.gravitar.com, those will now show up in post comments for the VibeTalk 2 theme.
- Site Coding – numerous changes to the underlying code to make it more consistent and (hopefully) a bit faster
