Getting ready for some pretty major changes. And a chance at a Sneak Peek...
I've been hard at work on some pretty significant changes here on FamilyTreeCircles, big enough that I want to roll this out a little more carefully than I usually do.
For now, the only noticeable change is the header.
If yours doesn't look like that with the black bar at the top, try holding down the shift key while hitting the reload (or refresh) button on your browser. Or just wait and it'll update eventually.
So what's changing?
I've completely redesigned the user profile page. My goal is to make your user profile the hub of your activity, a much nicer home for you here on FamilyTreeCircles. The default view will be a full view of all your journals, formatted much like a blog. That way, anyone who follows your every post can easily see what you've been writing. If you organize your posts into categories, that will be much more visible. And your Assist! locations and surnames will be featured prominently as well.
In fact, it's going to be a lot like having your own blog, which is where I am headed with this.
And speaking of following, I'll be reintroducing he concept of "follow"ing. By following someone, you will be able to keep track of their new stuff.
When's it coming?
I'm still testing it out, but if you would like a sneak peek, just comment here on this post and I'll turn it on for you.
I'll probably grow impatient and make it available in the next few days, but I'd love to get some feedback first.
Again, just comment below if you'd like to try it out and give me some feedback.
