We deployed a small update to the site today. It contained a lot of minor changes and bug fixes, but also a couple of notable things:
- In the comments capsule you can now prevent future comments without losing your existing comments. Just edit the capsule and check the appropriate box.
- We've also added a page where you can see the entire topics tree in one place. Sometimes it can be hard to fine the topic you want, this might help some people. Topic pages begin to "exist" once there are 5 hubs in them. Until then the link will be grayed out, but remember hubs can appear on any topic page that is above them in the tree.
As usual, please let us know if you see anything strange with these new features or elsewhere.
I like the topic tree but have one suggestion...Is there a way to list the Main Topic first and then a drop down from there?
This way one does not have to go wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy down the page if your topic is a mile away. I tried the scrolling down to get to Sports and passed over what I was looking for several times. Backed up, went too far, back and forth.
This was a GREAT idea. It'll be very helpful in coming up with ideas. Thank you for the change.
I have a question, if I have a topic for a category, how do I do so.
For example, if I wanted to write a hub on: Technology > Computer Science and Programming > Programming Languages > Perl
How do I suggest the Perl category as their currently isn't one. I know their isn't a lot on the site right now in the programming languages category so it almost wouldn't be worth adding further categories, but I do a few hubs-to-be that will be written for categories that do not exist yet.
This updates sound great. I especially think the topic tree is good as you can look at it before you write a hub. If there are already several with your topic you would have to decide if you had new information or if it is worth writing.
