As Wendy mentioned, this week we will be rolling out an update to the ExhibitFiles software. There are a few bug fixes, some changes in terminology, improved help, and a series new features. Thanks to everyone who has reported bugs or suggested changes. Many of your suggestions have found their way into the new version of the site.
These are the major improvements and changes that you’ll find in the ExhibitFiles last this week:
Search – We’ve added the ability to search all of the site content (case studies, reviews, and member profiles). In addition, keywords, author names, and museum names will be clickable–allowing users to see all of the records that relate to those terms. This a major improvement over our temporary Google co-op search engine.
Comments – The ability to edit comments for up to 15 minutes after posting will be added. Web addresses that are in comments will be clickable.
Profiles – We’ve added the ability to embed RSS feeds from your blog or a favorite one. In addition, you can now add thumbnails of your latest photos from flickr automatically. (See the image above.) Also, you will be able to add co-authors to your list of publications and presentations.
Contacts – When you add someone to your contact list, they will receive an email letting them know that you’ve added them.
Favorites - Case studies and reviews will now display icons and links to the profiles of those members who have “favorited” an exhibit.
We’re still testing these new features, but we’ll send along a message once these enhancements are in place. See you on the ExhibitFiles.
