You can now bookmark stuff by clicking the link at the bottom of posts - this goes for any content on the site. These will show in a block in the right column, and also in a tab on your account (you can see other people's bookmarks too). More stuff going to be happening with this soon, but this is a start.
cool, I've wanted something like this for ages.
looks like a great feature, but doesn't appear to be working yet (says i haven't added any bookmarks yet when i've just added 4, and the links in the side block don't do anything).
I've got a list of 'most bookmarked' content in my sidebar.
I've bookmarked some stuff but it is still coming up as "You haven't bookmarked any content yet."
I've tried a 'hard refresh' and it's still saying that.
Also it's coming up in the format "Title: What is Anarchism?" and they aren't hyperlinks.
edit: the bookmarks are saving though. I can see them on the bookmarks tab on my user profile. hope that helps.
One last unrelated thing. Rob Ray's blog post on Churchill is odd on the front page of the /blog page. Basically the entire article is there on the front page instead of an intro; I imagine because he didn't put a break in for the introduction. Might be worth checking out though.
My bookmarks are now showing up in the sidebar and they ar hyperlinks. The most bookmarked ones haven't changed though. There also isn't currently any division between 'most bookmarked' and 'my bookmarked'.
I've got block caching enabled, clearly this doesn't work well with people adding stuff and wanting to see it appear quickly... working on it.
It looks like crap, also working on that.
It looks great now mate, nice work.
yep looking good. to be picky, them triangle bullets would be nice to make it clear where the end of one title ends and the start of the next begins, since they're mostly wrapped over multiple lines
which browser you got triangle bullets on? Post a screenshot?
sorry was requesting them, not reporting them
ahhh. That would've been a very strange bug. Will think about how best to do bullets - was a bit inconsistent on the old site.
nice work so far. minor thing, now there's a bookmarks tab on user profiles, might be good to rename the 'view' tab 'profile' to be consistent with social networking norms, even if it's hardly facebook.
Yeah make nice one, this looks excellent.
Is this the module we can use to "feature" stuff on the site? If so, how do we do that?
View -> Profile - yeah we should do that.
John - yes it is, but I've not set that up yet. Will add the 'feature' flag now, and do views probably tomorrow.
Okay, this looks cool.
Does the bookmarks thing have any more functionality than just displaying the most popular ones? Can we see information about popularity and people bookmarking things in more detail? For example, there being a very little to display "people who have bookmarked this article" or perhaps some sort of box with "people who have bookmarked this article also liked..."
And what about the features thing, is that fully working in its final form now? Because if that is the case we are going to have to go through and manually feature loads library and history articles which we might want to display blocks right? Or should we hold off doing that for a bit?
Marking stuff as feature ought to work fine. Let's do some basic testing tomorrow before going mad just in case. I can add 'feature' links to teasers so it's quicker to add stuff.
People who bookmarked - that's on its way. It'll be nicer when we've got panels doing user profiles, but that's a way down the line.
I tried to do a 'most popular' page, but that didn't work, will investigate.
'People who bookmarked also liked' could be quite a bit harder, but we'll see. If it gets used a lot, we could do 'popular content in this section' for tags + news/history/library maybe?
Sounds good. And yes let's test feature with a few bits and pieces. I've done a couple this evening.
One other thing, when you're looking at other peoples bookmarks tab from their profiles, articles don't seem to be links:
fixed. Front page now shows the most recent feature up top, then the next four featured articles below. Very quick and hacky but a start.
currently, the 'more' in the my bookmarks block goes to http://libcom.org/user/bookmarks, ideally should go to the bookmarks tab of your user profile to avoid duplication imho
It should, but I haven't got that working yet - hopefully just temporary though.
Slight thing, most-popular lists are often self-fulfilling prophecies - people click on the top five more often because it's on the front page and they know it's popular. Could lead to the top five or so articles staying static and getting way more traffic. Dunno if you can time it for 'most poular today' or 'most poular this week'?
I might be able to do that yeah, will try.
OK got something like that working - it only shows content which was bookmarked in the last week - but still uses total counts for ordering. Obviously it'll take a while to see how that works.
Tweaked it a bit more, it now orders by recent bookmark time and the count rather than filtering - should give slightly more dynamic results. If it looks too static in a week or so, post back and let me know.
Looks excellent. Nice work.
