Berkeley Rep Blog 1.5: RSS, sharing, and more
posted by Cheshire Isaacs on Fri, Jun 5, 2009
In the past couple of days we've been working under the blog hood, and we've made some tweaks and introduced a couple of great features:
- We finally have an RSS feed! The link appears on every blog page in the left column. RSS is an easy way of reading all the blogs you frequent. Find out more about RSS and how to access our feed here.
- Want to tell people about something you read on the blog? Now it's easier than ever. On each page with a single blog post, you'll see a little button marked "Share." Roll your mouse over that button to find multiple ways you can share that story with your friends -- through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Digg, and more.
- The blog home page and monthly/category archives now show excerpts of long posts rather than the whole thing. This makes it much easier to scroll and find articles you want to read.
- Comments are now enclosed in a grey box, which helps reduce visual clutter on the page. It's a minor tweak, to be sure, but we're always looking for ways to improve things.
Anything more you want to see us do with the blog? Let us know in the comments!
Fantastic! I love the new share feature.
