Feedback/Commenting Upgrade

April 24, 2012 | 12:10 PM

Fairly extensive upgrade to the commenting system. Completely invisible to our clients, just new functionality which their sites automatically enjoy. Here are some highlights:
  • Ajax Functionality: New comments are now processed using an Ajax interface which allows the visitor to immediately see the results of their comments.

  • Replies: You can now configure your site to allow for replies to comments. By default, this feature is disabled. Simply go to your Feedback Defaults and enable replies.

  • Print and Email: New icon allows visitors to print and email individual comments.

  • SEO Optimization: Individual comments have been optimized for the search engines. Click on a comment title and you'll see the resulting page with full SEO implementation.

  • Improved Captcha: We have embedded an improved "Captcha" control which is very secure. You can over-write this secure captcha with a simpler image identification captcha in your Feedback defaults. Of course, you can disable the captcha altogether, but we do not recommend this action. Visitors who have either logged-in or completed the Captcha will not see the Captcha.

  • CSS controls: More extensive CSS controls for styling comment presentation.

  • Custom Comment Presentation: We built in the ability to offer customized comment presentation to clients. Nobody has asked for custom presentation, but we built it in anyways.

  • Custom Icons: Your site feedback includes upper-right icons for print, email, source, etc. These icons can be replaced with your own design in the Feedback Defaults.
We hope our clients include these new features.

quotes
SMDP"After years of subpar online publishing services, we discovered the answer to everything we were looking for in Linear Publishing. Linear is so easy to use and so quick to respond that our site was up in no time. Their online manual is invaluable but their staff is also extremely responsive. They have so many features that we may never use but they are there if and when we want to use them. Most recently, we created our mobile site. Within an hour it was up and running. Linear far exceeds their competition and our expectations."
