Site admins will notice a new option to toggle between Preview and Edit modes on their guild pages. By default, you will be in Preview mode. Clicking on Edit mode opens a mini-menu in the top right corner of the site that stays in view when scrolling up and down the page.

The mini-menu offers quicker ways to do things that used to take more time to access via the Control Panel. You are able to swiftly add a new page, a new widget, or delete a page.

In addition, being in Edit mode makes it possible to move widgets around on the page by using drag-and-drop. Also, a delete icon appears in the title area of each widget. When finished, simply click the Preview link to return to Preview mode.

All of the above-listed operations are still available in the Control Panel, of course.

The Control Panel itself has been enhanced with a new front page that lists some helpful (we hope!) videos for site admins. It also provides the ability to search for videos and the answers to frequently asked questions. The change log is still available, it's just on the second tab.

A problem with the answers applicants gave to app questions disappearing after the original question has been deleted has been fixed, and will be no problem moving forward.

This is all nice and dandy, except for the fact that I as a Super Admin can't see anything on my site anymore.

Every widget has the "display: none" style set for it. Works fine with a test account who is just regular member. And it works fine on the test site I have, just not on our main site.

The fix is compiling and I'll push it right afterwards. Affected pretty much everyone with custom html content boxes. By the way, your thumbnail of the Joker seems strangely appropriate right after I've bungled a deployment.

don't know if it's just a chrome thing.. but the new preview/edit links don't seem to have any onclick event attached to them

noticed it earlier on my test site, but figured you guys were still in the progress of pushing code but it's still not clickable - see the tooltips fine tho. any thoughts?
Cheers, Shulkie

Shulkie, I'm also noticing the same thing in IE and Firefox. Aaron may have them inactive atm, my guess.

Yes... Browser specific. Many changes, fix coming now. Sleep, shortly after. Aware of lameness of widget delete icon when widget is custom html. Fix for that -- after sleep.

It's working now on Firefox and IE. Looks pretty snazzy, Aaron! Thanks!

Yeah I like it too... but one thing, can we hide the edit buttons in each widget in preview mode and have them show up in edit mode?

looking better thanks A

little request - when moving from one page to another it reverts from edit mode to preview mode.. any chance of having this setting held in the site cookie so we can stay in edit mode until we decide we are finished?
Cheers, Shulkie
