Home renovations (2)
Previously, I wrote about some of the reasons the site needs to be upgraded from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7, and I gave the URL of the beta version, so you can go mess about with it (your existing login will work).
In this post, I want to describe a few of the every day improvements that should make the site easier to use, especially for beginners. In fact, using a keen free screen capture tool called Jing, I made a few (amateurish) videos, with actual voiceover, so you can see what I'm talking about without actually visiting the new site.
However, I made them too large to embed, and so there are only links. Sorry! But please click through and, if you then feel so inclined, log in and test drive.
5. Vastly improved, "faceted" search that I hope makes Corrente's humongous back catalog much more accessible.
6. Exotic features like spell checking and [Hi Hugh!] non-Roman characters like Chinese ideographs.
More to come....
