Create Your Own Blogs!

This past week we've been busy working on a new feature which allows everyone to setup their own blogs on the site. Now you can chronicle your gaming adventures with ease right here! To get started you can visit your blog page and click on the 'Add Entry' button to write your first entry!

You can use Markdown and emoji within your entries. I suggest checking out my personal blog post here to see what sorts of fun things you can do!

You can also set privacy levels on who can and can't see your blog posts (at a per post level), you can allow or disallow comments on your entries and you can set your blog posts and published or unpublished.

If you ever want to edit a blog entry you can visit the entry itself and click on the Edit button or go to your Edit Profile page and you'll see a new tab for Blog Entries.

We'll be adding pagination to the blog pages so when you fill up one page worth of entries you can go back to see old entries with ease. We don't have an ETA on this, but we are hoping to complete it by the end of the month.

Other things we'd like to get done within this Milestone (which has a completion date of April 31, 2015) are:

  • Adding Pagination to blog pages (/blog and /myblog)
  • Sending a notification when someone adds you as a friend to those who have the notification enabled
  • Add more styling to the post bits on the forum
  • Complete our group chatroom (no more manual refreshing)
  • Add a friend feed which shows you what your friends are up to
  • Add an RSS feed to the sites new blog
  • Add more privacy options
  • Add a groups feature

While we can't guarantee if and when all of the items will be completed, it's certainly our goal to get these worked on and completed as soon as we can!

As usual, please report any bugs or issues to our support forums, it's greatly appreciated!
