New features @ SG

Post by Philip »

We have just added some functionality to the main site.

Users can now add comments directly under, and rate every article, news, or review posted on the site ! (look for the "Add Comment" button and "rate:" menu under articles)

Enjoy, and please let me know if you experience any problems or odd behavior. Suggestions and comments (some pun intended) are welcome as well ;)

[quote="John"]Very nice addition ]

Yes, maybe it hurts SEO a little. Still, many spiders work ok with dynamic content, I don't feel like rewriting all the functions, and I didn't want to use mod_rewrite to load the server more...

Need to add up the Speedguide.net logo with the Santa hat.


And add up more themes for premium members.
Respect it.

I noticed that submission of news is a little slow. Any idea what's up?

It's not automatic. It has to be reviewed first. Usually Philip handles that and he's been quite busy. Apologies for sure.


Philip, awesome indeed!!

There is a button "Add Comment" under articles/news/reviews, that adds comments directly under the text of the articles. It supports direct discussion about the content of the main site, allthough not many have used it yet :( . Also, there are pull-down menus on the bottom of pages to rate the information/product.

Just updated the main site, users now have the ability to post comments and user ratings in the FAQs section

(news/articles/reviews user comments and ratings has been in place for about a month as well).
