Fellow travellers and hosts,
the summer is about to start and the big BeWelcome event in Toulouse is about to happen this weekend, so our motivation is high to improve this site. Here is what we've done:
- Made profile updates more intuitive by adding "Edit" links when viewing own profile
- Improved map search to return more relevant results
- Fixed a couple of errors when editing profile data
- Showed the "Family and close friends" feature some love
Read all the background and discussion in the 10 tickets mentioned in the detailed changelog.
Also, we'd like to know your opinion on two smaller changes we've made to the profile pages:
- Firstly, when viewing your own profile, you also see "Edit" links on the groups, comments and pictures boxes although you can't directly edit things on the following pages. Should we rename the link to "Manage" there, or is this clear as it is?
- Secondly, the "Family and close friends" list had no limit anyway, that's why we removed the "Show more" link. This means the box currently always shows all friends, which is already a very long list for some members (bonjour du Sud de la France). Should we limit this box to 3, 5, 10 or more friends, or even let you set this in your preferences?
Please write your opinion in the comments below!
I'd like to thank crumbking and mahouni200000 for testing and contributing code to this release. Also toub is currently working on liberating us from using commercial mapping technology, more details on this once it's there.. ;)
