Well I like the UNA 12 layout, it looks more like conventional social media but with its own distinct look and features. Memcache seems to be working the site does load faster with no lags in loading pages. And the Studio layout is better. The Profile Stats column or rather the homepage navigation menu on the left side of the news feed is a real good idea, it helps members to find their way around, I added some custom links to this menu such as a chat room section and a News & Info section which is a Wordpress installation I placed inside UNA for my news and user help section. The chat room section has 8 separate chat rooms but the users can create their own and add their chat room link to their profile. The chat rooms are HTML5 chat room clients. Which is more or less a custom feature I thought up. Some things I did in UNA 11 were to add broadcast pages for select broadcasters on the Internet, and with those broadcast plugins, I added a comments section which I made using other chat instances embedded into the page. The broadcast pop out so the users can navigate the comments and watch the broadcast.
Yesterday to the Profile Stats menu I added a top link to a new users guide that over views the site features and functions with quick explanations on how to get started using them, I want the members to know how the TinyMCE Post editor works and how it can help them make more creative post content. I know that not everyone who uses lets say Facebook or Twitter knows how to use a text editor, and so I want to introduce to my new members a way to get started on all of the features of the site, Discussions, Channels, etc.
ok Molosser Dogs, the address is dansgate . com if this will allow me to post a link. My beta testers are all gone since I reuploaded the site and updated it so you might be my first member on UNA 12. Invite friends since I am now taking on members.
Being that it loads faster it makes configuration and set up of the site and modifications to the menus etc allot faster to do. Learning my way around on UNA 11 helped this time around to set up 12. And the slight changes in the layout and look are nice. I believe when I start getting a bunch of members in now that they will like the place. Got to do allot of advertising to do that. People talk about leaving Facebook but I do not see them following through on it.
