EOS SITE UPDATES Nº9
19 January 2015 @ 13:01

Well, here we are just into the new year and with a new functinality update.

 

The first update is the "following" functionality. It have been improved and extended to blog posts, so not only can you follow thread comments and blog post comments, you can also follow bloggers/blogs.

For threads the only difference is graphic, it now looks like this and can be found at the top of the thread. Simply select ON/OFF

 

 

 

For Blogs you will find the same functionality at the end of the blog post  where you can follow the blog or the comments on a particular post. So there is now no excuse for missing a post from your favourite bloggers!

 

Secondly and well overdue is the "PREVIEW"  functionality for bloggers. Now you can preview your blog post before publishing live. This means you can get it looking perfect before anyone else sees it!  At the end of the "new post" screen you will now see that there is only a preview button. When you click on this it will take you to yout preview post. If you are happy, you can publish directly or schedule from that point. If not, select edit and continue editing. 

 

Lastly you have control over all your subscriptions via your Account Panel in "my account". There you will see "my subscriptions" enabling you to see and deactivate all your "follows" in one place:

 

 

If you have any questions or need some help just leave a message or pm the moderators.

 

Thanks!

(1) Re the preview facility this has made my blogging so much easier to control as most posts take a very long time to finish & I couldnt always devote the time needed before, thank you! :-)

(2) I'm still having problems positioning images where I need them, they invariably position themselves at the top not in amongst the text. Sometimes they will position perfectly but I've no idea why they did then & not other times. I've messaged you on this twice but had no response which is amazing as you always respond fast & are very helpful.

(3) I'd like to follow certain peoples blogs but can't locate them as I don't know what they call the blog. For instance 'Foxbat' writes one, I'd like to follow him.

(4) Regarding me receiving emailed notifications if anyone comments on my own blogs I previously received these. Seems I now don't unless I go back over all my posts & change setting to 'follow'. Am I right in thinking that?

Hi Morerosado

Glad you like the preview function.

We don't recall any messages about images. The last message we received was about embedding a video...not sure what happened there.. In any case if you look at the previous post on this blog it explains how to position a photo in your post. If you have any further problems please PM us.

If you search for the member via the search option at the top of the page you will be able to locate the member or the blog title. On the member's profile page you can see their blogs too.

You should still receive email notifications when someone comments on your blog. The updates are for the readers not the bloggers, but obviously everyone benefits. You don't need to do anything. Really the update enables the readers to follow the blogger not just the post as before.

If you have anymore problems please PM us.

Thanks

I sent a message about positioning images & the problems I am experiencing to EOS Team 16/11, 27/11 then 17/12 on one thread (all from me to you with no response from you). I never used to have such trouble. Shall I send again on a new message?

Your previous post does not help, I can do that, it's the actual positioning I'm having frustrating problems with. My messages explained.

I had searched for member Foxbat. I have now tried again, found his blog, I've set notifications to 'on'. This works if I remember the name of the blogger! Years ago finding members posts, in date order too, was a doddle till EOS changed it to a Google search.
If a member does not want their blog(s) listed on their profile they can remove it/them so you can't necessarily locate them that way.

You will get a much faster response if you message us (eos_moderators) directly as you always did before. Not sure what happened but we missed the message. Sorry.

The only way to position an image is by selecting a line with the cursor and clicking. It will automatically position to the left unless you select right. If you click before or after the image you can shift it with the space bar left or right. Or select the 'centre' button for text formatting, that will centre it too. But if you have selected the wrong position it is better to delete the image and repost it rather than trying to fix it on the post. If you wish to embed the photo into the text follow the steps on the previous post. Normally photos are best added once you have written all the text. If none of this helps please send us a PM - eos moderators - and please explain exactly what other problems you are encountering and we will do out best to explain.

As for locating a blog is concerned, it will have to be via the google site search functionality using, member's name and then going to the profile or the blogger's name or the blog title. If the members decides not to publish the blog on their profile then you will not be able to locate it unless you know the title of the blog or the title of the post. If you know neither of these you will have to search back to the date that more or less coincides with the post. At present there is no other way.

Any other issues please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks
