« on: December 07, 2008, 08:20:25 AM »

This month's update has arrived.  There were many changes to the site code, new features, bug fixes, etc.  Keep in mind we are still in a beta state.  So if you find a bug or encounter a problem, please let us know about it.

Let's start with the nifty new stuff.
New Features

  • Category Sensitive Random Story - the Random Story feature now is sensitive to which story category you are viewing when you click on it.  So it should randomly select a story from that story category.
  • Story Read Counter - the site will now track the number of unique views of each story as reads for that story.
  • Story Review Rating - you can now rate the story you are reviewing when you review it.  This is an option that is customizable by the author and it is not mandatory for the reviewer to participate.  When browsing by stories, you can also sort them by the average rating that they have received.  The reviews for a story can also be filtered by the rating given by the reviewer.

Bug Fixes

  • Default Chapter Entry - Not exactly a bug, but the default chapter entry is now the TinyMCE.
  • Story Cats in Table of Contents - Fixed the way the code was parsing the story categories in the table of contents.
  • Last Chapter in Table of Contents - Fixed the link for the last chapter under chapter count column in the table of contents.
  • Current Chapter in Table of Contents - Modified the table of contents so it indicates which chapter is currently being viewed.
  • Tighter Forum Integration - Modifications to increase the site integration with the forum.   

As always, we're interested in hearing from you.  So let us know your thoughts.

  • Category Sensitive Random Story - I am not much for selecting random stories, but this is a nice feature to have.
  • Story Read Counter - Yes! The best feature introduced in December. I hope to see it progressing to counts by the chapter, so I would know when people quit reading my fic  Evil
  • Story Review Rating - Couldn't find the setting for it to customize.

Bug Fixes - Can't see them outright, but these things are important for the daily smooth site usage. Little improvements go a long way.

when you go to leave a review, Maddie, there'll be an option where there's a drop down box and you can chose to rate with words instead of other methods. its underneath the review box and its a rating for the story.

So, I have to review the story in order to also rate it. Would be cool if rating became separate at some point.

I was trying to figure out "This is an option that is customizable by the author" bit, because this means that I should be able to adjust this for my own fics. Or did I get it completely backwards Smiley

when you go into the fiction archive, go to your author's preferences. you can find that on the left hand side of the page, under the author's menu its the third option in the first section, "Edit Your Review Preferences."

To filter the reviews by the rating, click on any of the rating labels.  It will generate a pop-up.  Then just click on the rating that interests you.  It will then show you the reviews with that rating.  You can then find out the why that someone rated a particular story the way they did.
