Alliance shouts are now in place, so you may now yell at your closest allies.  By default, they are enabled. You (guild admins) can disable them by clicking the edit button under the shout box and clicking Display Options.  It's a checkbox in there.

Aion Legion Status, a new content type, is now available for Aion legions.  It's based off the same mojo as the automatic roster goodies.  Also, while it will be a default content type moving forward, Aion legions that have already been set up will need to add the content type if they want it (Control Pane -> Pages and Content -> Pick a Page and Add Content).  Here's a snap:



Also, sites using the Nav Bar Builder (Control Panel -> Style Tools -> Nav Bar Builder) can now specify where they want the Login/Characters and Settings links to display.  Options are: default (very top of the page, Under Nav Bar, and Above Nav Bar).  Here's an example of a site with it set to display under the nav bar:



Finally, for free sites using the Nav Bar style of navigation (aka Straight Bar), advertisements will now appear after the nav bar, so as not to nasty up your banner layout.

So, that'll be it for new dev for the week.  This'll be an early code push, going out about 10 minutes after I save this update.  We'll resume on Monday with more goodies.  Have a great weekend and, as always, thank you for making GuildPortal your guild's home on the web!

Hi Aaron, the feature for shout box is neat but I believe it's broken. On my guild site when we post a shout there are several repetitions of the same message.

Shout Box is broken. Repeats each shout seven times, even those present before the update.

Please revert Shout Box to the way it was.

Discovered that by clicking the Block Shouts from Alliance? box in Edit mode stops the repeating shouts. However, this blocks the shouts from the alliance websites.

Shouts are good to go now.

JTollers - I'm looking into the content deleting thing, although at the moment I can't seem to get it to reproduce in IE, FireFox, or Safari on either Window or the Mac.  Are you getting a specific error or something?

Also, for the library problem, I'm not sure what you mean by collapse mode vs. link mode?

Hi Aaron, the shout box spam is gone. However, the feature to set "Shouts to Display (Max 20)" seems to not work. I'm trying to set the display to 5. I clicked on save. The number appears to be 5, but when I refresh the page, thre are 15 shouts.

But the pie chart does not show up on my site, and the bar graph for clerics is missing

On my roster page
