A few days ago, my tech team at Hoop.la, the gods and goddesses who maintain the software that drives this site, upgraded a number of features. Most of the new features give me (admins) more control over various back-end functions, but a couple of the upgrades directly affect you. Nothing too major this time, but I thought you should know that:
(1) A more visible posting button was added to mobile versions of the site. In the past, the posting option was somewhat buried when using a mobile device. Hoop.la improved this feature by adding a posting icon (a plus sign) that displays in the lower right corner whenever a user is viewing in a mobile browser and logged into the site. Note: You will not see the plus sign if not logged in. Here's a view of what the icon looks like (photo courtesy of Hoop.la):
(2) It's now easier than ever to emote, meaning I can now add almost any emoji ever invented to the options available on this site. Tonight, I added a few of my personal faves: ❤️😂😘! If you have other faves that you want me to add, please leave screen shots of them in the comments below, and I will do my best to add them over the next few weeks. BTW, emoticons/emojis can be found under the smiley face icon at the top of every comment block, as shown below:
And, that's all for this upgrade! Any questions? Leave them below!
