Does anyone have a running beta test site for UNA 13 that people can join to see how it works from the end user perspective?
Been busy. Checking in to see what's new here, what's up with UNA. I was on Facebook today saw an ad about this supposed new Trump social media site people have been posting about which is suppose to be online now for over a year? I mentioned it does not take forever to get a social media site up online, a few minutes uploading and setting up the database and then you can log into the Admin control panel. And within an hour have some of the customizing done. So I was wondering why Trump does not have a site set up now as claimed and mentioned that it does not take over a year. Someone told me I was nuts. I did not know what I was talking about. Anyways if he is suppose to set up something he is not working with the right people. If he is setting up something I suppose he got a team that said they would start from scratch to build a script. Anyways this makes no sense to me.
I added some share buttons to the View Post page of my UNA site, and at first they were working properly posting the og image and the og title of the post to Facebook and Twitter. Then later the post title stopped working on the share feature but the post image does post to Facebook and Twitter. So what I see now is the header image of the post and some of the content text in the body of the post. Can anyone suggest what might be the problem?
I have been using UNA since November and it has been a learning experience, since then I have tried all of the features and looked over the options I have in terms of page creation, layout and block or in page modules or application blocks, for html, raw and custom scripts. I realized that UNA has a dual application for use, one naturally being a social media site and the other being an online magazine or journal of user driven and defined content. In realizing the later I have developed that idea along pretty well with turning all of the various post viewing pages into website pages with sidebar content such as links and ads, as well as a search bar. So those pages have become a public access section of webpages with post and articles, and ads content.I made a custom page for the Featured content and gave it the name of the magazine section of my UNA site, this becoming the magazine home page. And I used an .htaccess file to customize a short url to the page further down in the site. I gave the custom url the name of the magazine.I chose an unique name so that it would come up on the search engines at the top of the heap which is does at Google, where it is the first listing, plus I wrote about it in articles at BeforeItsNews and created a profile name for the site at LinkedIn. These listings also come up under my top level listing so this helped in SEO and getting to the top fast. I expect to remain at the top since there are hardly any mention of the name I chose anywhere on the Internet.My only problem I have encountered is that with several listed means of adding injections of code to the head, body and footer, none of them work?
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.
