As you may have already read in the Editors blog, we have re-designed the lightboxes on the site.
We have noticed a few inconsistencies in the appearance of some module lightboxes and we are working on resolving these.
Thank you for your patience.
The Webjam development team have released the following fixes:
Bookmark Favicon Fix
For those who were experiencing problems getting the bookmark module to return favicons successfully, we have issued a fix that enhances the search functionality behind this.
Additionally a bug which meant that sites with very long site descriptions could not be added as bookmarks has also been resolved.
Tag Cloud Fix
A fix was made to the tag cloud module so that when a tag is removed from its location (deleted from a blog etc.) the tag is also removed from the tag cloud. Please note that the module updates approximately every minute so be aware of this time frame once a tag is removed.
Two key things to have been developed and launched by the Webjam team this week:
Some extra enhancements were made to the Bookmarks module which has morphed into an entirely new module. Now, rather than just updating the module with links you are able to enter a URL which automatically searches and updates with descriptions/tags and favicons. These are then displayed in the module. The module can also made completely collaborative so that members of your networks can insert their own bookmarks too! Read more
Event Module Flow Fix
We noticed a small problem in the flow of inviting people to events in that once your guests have followed the link to your page in the email sent to them they are unable to fully complete their attendance response. This has been resolved and your event attendees should now fully be able to confirm their attendance. We are also working on enhancements to this module in light of much user feedback - watch here and the Webjam Blog for when this is launched.
We've noticed an issue around creating events and inviting people to events you've created. We are working hard to resolve this issue and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
We appreciate your patience while we work to get this fixed.
Custom Registration Form
Improvements to the custom Registration form include users now being able to write "support text" for the purpose of adding statements which new members can agree to using the (new) "Inline checkbox".
For example, on a network the editor may want new members to agree to the following support text:
"This site wishes to send you occasional emails containing relevant information and upcoming events"
and also adds the Inline checkbox:
and also adds the Inline checkbox:
"If you agree to receive occasional emails please tick this box" [ ]
Character Limit Removed from Glossary
We have been requested by users to remove the character limit from glossary module entries and this has been completed this week.
We have been busy developing the following fixes/enhancements to the Webjam platform:
Email Sent From
Fixes were made to email sent from addresses so that they should be successfully delivered to the recipients and be sent from the correct sender:
Network (name of network), user (the user's full name) or "Webjam" (our own info@webjam email address).
First/Last page navigation - forums module
An enhancement made in response to a user of the popular Ed Speleers site (http://www.edspeleers.com). When the number of pages exceeds 10 on a forum post - the option to select the first or last page is now given.
Enhancements to Blog and Members Form
Users previously requested a way to more easily manage comments on blog posts. This has been developed so that the blog editor can set how many comments can be displayed and in what order they are listed (old to new, new to old).
We have developed a brand new module on the Webjam platform:
The Glossary Wiki Module
This brand new feature enables editors and network members to add their own entries into a directory which then stores the entry in an easy-to-find alphabetised search.
Editors also have the option to moderate the entries and edits, as well as providing the ability to alter the collaboration settings.

This week we've made some enhancements to the dashboard, as well as tidying up by fixing a couple of small bugs.
My networks access
From the dashboard, as well as the hints and tips there is a mini-my networks module that lists three of your networks as well as a link to the actual 'my networks' page. The link to the Webjammers Community has been renamed 'Editors Community'.
Top bar changes
Some slight alterations have been made to the top bar so that when you are logged in, the Webjam logo links to your dashboard. When you are not logged in, you are directed to the Webjam homepage. Additionally an issue with the 'Join' button moving if the username was too long has been fixed.
The Webjam footer has been updated for all network sites including the removal of the columns of links, and there is a more discreet looking footer for Webjam corporate pages.
For more information on all of these things - please visit the Webjam Blog post.
Last week the Webjam Development Team released the following items:
Bug fixes made to emails
- Minor fixes made to ensure profile pictures and links to pages are present and displayed correctly in email notifications.
- Network email addresses are now correctly displayed in the "reply-to" address for newsletters and in the newsletter settings screen (accessed from the 'members' tab).
Premium Discount Field
A field has been added to the payment screen when upgrading to Premium to allow the input of promtional/discount codes supplied by Webjam. More on this feature will be announced in the coming months.
Fixes and Enhancements to Topbar
- A fix was made to the activity count in your topbar to ensure that the count corelates to the number of acitivties in your dashboard inbox.
- The ability to "Join" is now an option on any pages or networks you are are currently not affiliated with. This does not apply to Webjam corporate pages.
