This weekend we rolled out a fresh batch of new features that many of you have asked for: a page action menu, member profile pages, and a new text editor toolbar. I’ll take a detailed look at what’s new over the next three days.
First up is a new page action menu visible when you click the down-arrow next to your page tab:
We’re big believers in simplicity in our user interface, but we found there were a few frequently-requested links that were a bit too buried in the wiki administration pages for our liking. These links have now been rolled under the new page menu. All visitors will see links to a printable view of the current page as well as a ‘what links here?’ page, also known as backlinks in the wiki world. Space organizers will also be able to rename, delete, redirect, and lock the current page without having to visit the page list in ‘Manage Space’.
For those of you on our Plus, Super, or Private Label plans who are using our full HTML + CSS custom theme system, you might be wondering: “where’s my page action menu?!” Fear not – it’s there, it’s just hiding. We didn’t want to surprise you with a feature that may not fit in with style, layout, or functionality of your wiki. More details below on how to bring the menu out of hiding*.
Tomorrow, I’ll dig into our second new feature, member profile pages. See you then!
* Got a custom theme? You can enable the page action menu by adding appropriate CSS styles to display both the menu button (#WikiPageSubMenuControl) and the menu below it (#WikiPageSubMenu). If you’re using our standard gradient tabs, this is really easy. First, add in our new common theme stylesheet:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/s/theme_common.css" type="text/css" />
Then, remove from your theme the classes now defined in this new stylesheet, namely .WikiPageMenu*, .WikiNotice*, .WikiBanner*. That’s it!
If you’ve customized the style of your menu, take a look at theme_common.css. You’ll need to set up the .WikiPageSubMenu* classes in a way that makes sense for your menu.
