Eos Site Update Nº4
Tuesday, September 3, 2013 @ 8:20 PM

Hi all ! :)

These are the new updates to the site which have gone live. More changes and improvements are ont he way as we are constantly working to improve the site in all areas.

1. No HTML or emails are permitted in blog comments or name fields on blog comments. This will contribute to reducing spam comments.

2. It is now configurable who can comment on your blog/articles. When you activate a new blog or edit a blog you can choose if registered or non registered users can comment on your blog. If you choose registered users the comment procedure is much faster for the reader as they do not have to fill in the "captcha" texts and numbers. All comments then can be traced to a user so spam should be a thing of the past and if it does happen we can block the user. If they are not registered they will be invited to register, if they want to leave a comment. If you allow non registered users to comment, anyone can leave a comment. We are working on more features to control spam from this area too so your blogging experience will be the best possible.

3. People who now leave a comment have the option to select an email alert, which will let them know that the blogger or someone else has left a reply/comment on the same post they have. This will help improve traffic to the blogs and also facilitate the quick response to comments left by readers. This only works for registered users and any one who wishes to remove themselves from this alert at a later date can do so by clicking on the link in the email alert that they receive.

4. The problems with modifying your avatar and viewing it in "my profile" have been corrected and this functionality now works perfectly.

5. Bloggers/Users now have their own photo folder to store and edit their photos. You access this folder by selecting the image icon in the text editor and it will take you to your user folder where all your photos are stored and can be reused without uploading again. Now you only have access to your folder and not the multiple folders that were visible before. This makes it much more user friendly and easier to control.

That's it for now, more on the way :)

All good - many thanks for your continued vigilance in all this. There were some very strange spam comments on my blog! Thanks for all your hard work :-)

As you will see I (Janice) write many blogs to help various charities for animals in Spain, Galgos del Sol, Actin-Spain etc & I have been compiling folders of photos over 2-3 years, some photos I have added text to etc , some I use to add links to in each charities blog. Suddenly I have no access to these hundreds of photos! :-(
I have therefore had to begin all over again creating new folders, trying to find my photos, it has caused a nightmare for me.
I have asked in Forum Help, I posted on main forum, I sent EOS Team a private message & no one offered me any help. Apart from writing blogs for Spanish animals,I write a few others. It is my endless saved photos all filed neatly in folders which suddenly are missing which is upsetting me.

Hi Janice

Your photos have not disappeared they just aren't visible and will need to be made visible to you. I am afraid we must have missed your post on the main forum. We will send you a pm.

Along with Tamara, I have had some very strange comments, but now that they can't drop a link, they seem to have stopped. Thanks for everything you do to make us happy bloggers!
