Some New Features
I've been taking some days off from writing -- and giving my Starbucks card a rest. During the intermittent moments between family and relaxing, I've been tinkering around with Class Blogmeister code, adding a few new features.
http://davidwarlick.com/images/googlegraph1-20071228-082311.jpg First of all, as you have noticed the new front page, you may also notice a new item in the main menu, Statistics. I'm kinda proud of this, partly because it utilizes a nifty little Google tool that generates dynamic graphics based on your data. Here you can get basic stats (current number of bloggers, total blog posts to date, blogs posted in the last hour, last 24 hours, and last week). You can also get a more detailed listing (and graph) of blogs posted by the week and by the hour. I've also re-added a cloud feature that will post the most used words in the last 100 teacher blogs and the last 100 student blogs.
Finally, this morning, I added a feature that has been requested by a number of teacher bloggers. As some of you have numerous classes with lots of students, requiring lots of scrolling, I've set the classes to be collapsed. So you simply click the class you want to see students for, and it expands out. You computer will remember that class for a period of time, keeping it expanded out as you return to your teacher page.
Please let me know if this causes any problems.
Happy New Year!
