By Barbara Bray      May 7, 2009 -- 02:26 PM
We just added a way that you can reply to a comment on a blog post instead of adding another comment at the end of the list. Letís say you just want to reply to one personís post that was in the middle of a long list of posts. Now you can and that reply indents so you have something similar to a threaded discussion.

New Look

By Barbara Bray      April 27, 2009 -- 08:35 AM
Lots of exciting things are happening with My eCoach. One is our new look. After 12 years with the same logo, we thought it was time to change to represent people helping each other and coaching.

New Select Template Option

By Barbara Bray      April 6, 2009 -- 06:13 PM
When we made the text editor larger, members using the Universal Builder or Blog templates found text overlapping the template. So now there is an option to select 800 pixels wide or 1000 pixels wide templates using a new selection tool. The default template is 1000w.

Choose 800w if you want to keep the same size you are using or 1000w if you want to add comment boxes, pictures, tables, etc. You can easily go back and change the ...   more...

Inbox, Text Editor, and Text Search

By eCoach Staff      April 6, 2009 -- 02:57 PM
Did you notice that there is a new tab on the left navigation bar? Now you can quickly access the message center inbox and even see how many new messages are waiting for you. When you have any messages waiting, you willl still see the flashing envelope above your profile on the upper right.

The text editor is now larger. Why? Because members were adding more pictures, tables, and other files. This way they can now keep writing and sharing not only in the Universal Builder and blogs, but wherever there is  the text editor including the comment box.

Searching tags in My eCoach? When you start ...   more...
