Re: [mention] 2011 WaterAndStone CMS Market Share Report Results

read your twits but there is no answer from them regarding the rest of us (I have no social networking accounts). Hopefully they will resolve it at which case our user-base will definitely show a sharp increase next year.

Thanks Robert

A sweet start, if at some point we could get the G+, Fbook. Linkedin, direct link down to the comment level as well, I would appreciate it.
The google plus 1 button (not the G+ share) might work tracking popularity on the comment and thread level for lurkers.
This is good for us who have to live in the social media world.

I tried, but FBook insists on citing the post one below the one I intended. Mysterious. Due to privacy concerns in Germany which are our third-largest visitor population, I’d rather not use their intrusive native API if possible.

Done. Which serves to show that this forum is basically a Bloke one-man show ;)

There are larger fish to fry, this is already a big step forward. Thank you.

Fantastic!

One (or two) little thing can we wrap a link to the forums around the “Recent Community Conversations” for context and maybe even a see more button/link that shows the last 100 or last day/week in that beautiful format.

Re: [mention] 2011 WaterAndStone CMS Market Share Report Results

The little blue bird seem to have introduced a glitch on my side:

http://imagebin.org/186516

Edit: clarification: the glitch is that big pale yellow box, next to the right of post content.

It doesn’t happen if I keep the TXP forum font-size at default size, but if I expand it using Ctrl++ (and that’s how I browse the forum), the issue is triggered.

A quick fix I’ve found is to set the height for .conr to 18px.
I’ll appreciate this fix being deployed, assuming it doesn’t break anything else :)

Great work. A couple of suggestions if i may: Text seems a little large compared to rest of page to me, and maybe put dates in there to show people just how current this stuff is – proves the project is being used and discussed right now when people come to the homepage.

Re: [mention] 2011 WaterAndStone CMS Market Share Report Results

One thing I’ve wondered: What if we just changed the “Community Support” menu item at textpattern.com to a direct “Community Forum” link —I wonder if there’d be a nice uptick in users?

The current forum link is almost hidden, and I remember that being frustrating as a beginner.

Something I’ve argued before, so certainly agree with. And documentation should point directly to .net. Once FAQs are audited and keepers re-written in context to “The Docs”, etc, there will be no logical reason not to. But why wait? Making these links at the main level helps address what totoff was talking about too, tying things together better and making it more obvious at the top.

And if we do some redirecting of the redundant domain names (also talked about before), e.g.,…

  • textpattern.net -> docs.textpattern.com
  • textpattern.org -> plugins.textpattern.com

…then we do one better.


The text persuades, the *notes prove。
