1/4/2013 4:14:05 PM Service Outage
From 1/1/2013 to 1/3/2013 at 10:14 AM (Mountain), GuildPortal services went offline. Here's what went down, in sequence. The cause of the problem had its start on 12/16/2012, so I'll begin there: 12/16/2012 to 12/31/2013: The server backups, which are stored on a network share, failed to ... Read Full Item
10/27/2012 4:38:40 PM Wall and More
10/27 Update - Activity Wall The Activity Wall, a new widget, goes live today! It's like the walls you'll find commonly on social networking sites. It's what the old Status Updates widget was kind of trying to do, only it does it a lot better. It could also be looked at as a replacement for shou... Read Full Item
10/10/2012 1:59:21 PM 10/10 Roll-Up
Many enhancements have been incrementally rolled out since the last release announcement. I'll summarize what's been going on, minus a lot of the minor bug fixes: New Feature Promotion Letters. Whenever a member is promoted to a higher level, you can replace the default system-sent mail wi... Read Full Item
8/28/2012 9:44:02 PM 8/28 - Trojan False Positive
Some of you running a couple different virus scanners are running into alerts on your guild sites. They're false positives centered around a trojan called JS:Blacole. The scanners are freaking out about something they don't like in the resource files GuildPortal passes down to support some of the... Read Full Item
8/24/2012 10:49:37 PM 8/24 Release
There are a couple releases rolled up in this: Those who have topic update notifications sent to their mobile devices (via SMS) will now be able to click a link that will take them directly to the topic on the mobile version of their site (site.url/m). Clicking on profile links now di... Read Full Item
8/9/2012 2:02:12 PM 8/09 - Couple hotfixes
There will probably be a few unscheduled pushes today as I finish ruthlessly crushing the problem that was causing the "Service Unavailable" errors over the past couple days. I was up all last night (no pity, I was well-dosed with caffeine!) tweaking and narrowing down. While I'm pretty sure I... Read Full Item
8/6/2012 5:14:07 PM 8/03 Release
Some refactoring of required Javascript files was done in order to reduce the number of files that browsers were having to download, which should decrease overall page load times. Admins now have the ability to customize the appearance of the global guild bar. They also have the abilit... Read Full Item
7/30/2012 8:22:14 PM 7/20 and 7/27 Releases
What was done: The password reset e-mail was made to include the account names. Header elements (H1, H2, etc) were set to no padding, causing them to appear flush with the sides of the widget body. Padding was added so it's not so ugry. A bug causing the "additional options avail... Read Full Item
7/13/2012 8:12:38 PM 7/13 Release
Here are the highlights from this week's update: One-on-one chat now works across public-side (meaning just browsing around GuildPortal), blogs, and guild pages. You'll be notified of chat requests no matter where you are. Posts now have a link along the bottom for forum moderators/ad... Read Full Item
6/27/2012 4:48:14 PM Full Text Search
Forum full-text search goes live! There is a link along the top of your forums that says "Search." It has two available modes, controlled by whether you have the "Exact?" check box checked. If you do not have the "Exact" check box checked, GuildPortal will find posts that match what you type i... Read Full Item
