Release Notes for Tuesday, September 3, 2013

11 posts in this topic

CK Editor Upgrade

Headlining this release is a significant version upgrade of CK Editor, which powers the rich text editing experience across your site. There are no changes to BBCode as part of this release, except some cosmetic updates to the toolbar.

To summarize the changes briefly:

1) Version upgrade with many minor fixes and compatibility improvements

2) "Quick" and "Advanced" mode switchable toolbar that shows most commonly used commands by default, with additional options behind a "More >" link.

3) No right-click interrupt in "Quick" mode. Right-click interrupt is still there in "Advanced" mode for table and list editing.

4) A "maximize" button that gives you a full-window editing canvas.

5) Better WYSIWYG fidelity: the editing area will pull the stylesheet from your site to a greater extent than in the past, which means that "what you see" will be closer to "what you get" than ever before.

6) Cleaner pastes: font size, line height, and background color will automatically be cleaned out when you paste content copied from a webpage.

7) Font faces are no longer settable by the user.

(Way) Better Email Verification / Password Resets

We did a massive overhaul of the entire system for handling "please click the link in the email you just received from us." It includes all of the following enhancements. We should see far, far fewer glitches and complaints with email verification and password resets process from now on.

It might help to describe some of the problems with the old process:

1) Verification messages were not sent immediately, but were queued. Sometimes this resulted in a delay of minutes, or more extreme cases.

2) If you clicked the link to request the verification be resent, we would invalidate the token in any previously sent messages. Clicking those would then result in an error. Send delays (#1, above) sometimes meant users wound up with several verification emails, only one of which would actually work... Confusion ensued.

3) Even if you got the right email and clicked a link with a valid token, you had to be logged in for verification to be accepted. If you registered on your computer but then clicked the email link on your phone, this might present an inconvenience.

Here's how things work now:

1) Emails are sent immediately, not queued with other site mail.

2) The link token in any verification or password reset email will expire when it's 24 hours old. In most cases, this means users won't have to worry about which link in which email will be the working link. Note that we also expire all such tokens the moment a password change is effected.

3) Email verification and password reset both work even if you're logged out.

4) We will send password reset emails even if you're opted out of email.

5) If you're on one of the Sendgrid blacklists: (mostly for repeatedly bounced emails), you'll receive an error message immediately, rather than having to wait forever for an email that's not going to arrive.

Erik,

The paste improvement is "wicked awesome".  I just copied a table from Wikipedia and it pasted perfect.

It hasn't happened yet. It's the 28th. :) We've had that functionality for quite some time now. Years. So thanks for the belated compliment.

OH!  The last time I did a paste, it was all messed up.  I think it was when I was writing a review.

It depends pretty heavily on the source HTML and how screwy it is. Wikipedia relies less on stylesheets and more on basic HTML, IIRC.

Anyone else having issues with accessing the whole smiley palette? Seems I can't pan left and right once the box is open, just scroll up and down. I tried with Safari and Chrome and no dice. Possibly on my end?

Nope, that's a bug.

Glad to hear about the copy paste fix.  Sometimes after copying and pasting certain texts,  the Sand Trap text box wants to have all follow up text written by the user in the same format as the copied text.

    • Parsons Xtreme Golf, GoDaddy Founder Starts New Golf Company
      First time I had the 0311 7i in my hand, I look up at address and say, "How very Ping of them." My instructor, who is a dealer, looks up, smiles, and says, "Ya' think?" As you know, Parsons lured 2 senior Ping vets away to start his company.  The hybrids are also attractive, moreso in hand than in pics. Sound is solid yet feel at impact is still lively - an effective balance.
    • Hitting behind the ball and making deep divots...
      Hi there! I also took a look at your swing. First, mvmac's response is stellar. Study that video and try to replicate the swing you see in his example video, placing emphasis on keeping your lower body more stable during the swing. Some golf basics: hitting behind the golf ball (ie a fat shot) is almost always the result of not getting your weight over to the left side at impact. By getting your weight over onto the left side before impact you will be promoting a slew of good things, like coming into the golf ball with the hands ahead of the ball at impact and the shaft leaning forward, all things that will promote hitting the ball first and then the ground, and hitting down on the ball.  In your swing what I saw was a tremendous amount of hip rotation in the back swing combined with a sway to the right side. At the top of the backswing your hips are so open and your body so far off the ball that its going to take an incresibly timed athletic move to get back to your address position and onto your left side prior to impact. Instead, think of the golf.swing as more of a rotary action. Your upper body turns away from the golf ball while your lower body tries to maintain the position you were in at address. As you wind the upper body back, try to feel like you are restricting the hips and teyinf to keep them in the same position as address. In actualityx the wonding back of the upper bidy will pull the hips back slightly and you should feel some tension, like your body has been wound back like a spring. From there the correct move is to do the opposite, rotate your hips to the left, shift your body weight onto your left side, and let the lower body and club fall onto the correct plane. From there you can swing hard and through the golf ball. A good drill is to practice the forgoing with 1/2 swing, pausing for a moment between the back swing and downswing. Hope this helps!  P.s. fatigue will always affect performance. If your arms feel tired and your focus is gone, its always best to move onto chipping/putting.
