New features you never realised you couldn't do without
Wondering what's been going on while you've been kicking back over the New Year's break, or just bored and looking for something to read? CodeProject never sleeps, so here's a rundown of new features added in the last couple of weeks.
- The Tabs. We've all seen them, and we've all puzzled over them, but what do they do? Be it MFC, C# or general .NET stuff, just click on the tab that suits you best and the homepage is customised so that you see only the information you're interested in. The navigation bar, top articles, latest additions and tutorials are now specific to the tab you choose.
- CodeProject on your phone? Yep - our first WAP page is up for those who can't stand to be out of contact any more than is necessary. Point your phone to http://www.codeproject.com/info/wapnew.asp to view a list of the latest 5 articles posted on CodeProject.com.
- Last 10 updates list now has the edited and unedited articles all jumbled together in one crazy list. The number of articles posted using the Submission Wizard is rising each week, so the combined list gives these guys and girls a little more floor space for their unmoderated masterpieces.
- Polls with free text entry. We at CodeProject are not afraid to push technology to the bleeding edge and beyond. Fed up with comments in the surveys such as 'you forgot option X' (no matter how richly deserved such comments usually are) I've stretched, pounded and bullied the scripts into allowing you to add that wildly hilarious answer to the weekly polls that just didn't make it into the 10 standard options.
- More anti-spam measures. If we wanted to work at home and Make Money Fast, or by cheap non-prescription viagra then there's always the yellow pages. Articles no longer have the authors name in the article header. If you want to mail the author directly, click on their hyperlinked name and fill out the form. We'll deliver the email to them with all the discretion of a brown paper bag.
