Added features for story comments

Lodi News-Sentinel 10 years ago in BLOX CMS updated by Michael Becker 10 years ago 6

One of the more popular online commenting services is Disqus. I'd like to see the BLOX commenting system adopt these features. I've suggested these privately but here they are for all to critique:

For readers, the ability to:

• Upvote or downvote comments.

• Like or dislike other commenters.

• Set a rating threshold for which comments they want to see. For example: "I don't want to see any comments that have a rating of -5 (5 downvotes) or lower."

• Block individual commenters. ("I don"t want to see any comment by user John Smith.")

• Sort comments (e.g. oldest to newest, newest to oldest, highest rated first)

For administrators, the ability to:

• Assign commenters to groups, such as "Trusted" and "Not Trusted" commenters. Trusted commenters have their comments posted immediately without moderation. Not trusted commenters have their comments held for moderation.

• Post customized messages when any comment is removed or posted by a banned user.

• Close comments without removing previous comments.

Ability to re-order saved searches in the asset manager

Lodi News-Sentinel 10 years ago in BLOX CMS 0

We're starting to accumulate more and more saved searches in the asset manager. It would be helpful to have the ability to re-order the searches by drag-and-drop or have them sort alphabetically (or both!).

Duplicating ad assets

Kent Lutt 10 years ago in BLOX CMS updated by Christine Masters 10 years ago 4
This would be a SWEET feature in BLOX Ad manager; simply being able to duplicate ad assets, such as mobile Touch 5 spots with numerous different positions for phone and tablet.

Use Ajax to check to see if a username is available

Christine Masters 11 years ago in BLOX CMS updated 10 years ago 0

On the signup page, add an ajax check (1 second after last keystroke, or something) to check to see if the requested username is taken. There is a system call for this.
