A brief update on the development of our website. We are currently working on new functionality which we plan to release at the end of the month. As always, we release smaller features and fixes every week. Here are some things to look out for.


Widgets & Screen Readers

There is a new blog widget which shows you recently viewed blog posts. Our blog posts should now work nicely with screen readers too. The reader mode in safari is a really neat tool and the blog section has been updated with this in mind.

Copying and pasting into a conversation has been fixed. There was an issue where pasting text into the textbox would not appear until after the conversation was saved. We also added some extra formatting options for you to play with.

We have also improved the responsiveness of the blog, making it easier to view on mobile and on tablet.

If you are a school moderator, we have added a link to the menu so you can quickly navigate to the school profile page and update your school.

We updated the home page and added a new blog section. You can also sign up to receive monthly updates from our blog via email. Click the ‘Sign up to our blog’ button to subscribe. Don’t forget, if you would like to have a story featured on our site, click the ‘Send us your news’ button. Look out for the buttons on the blog homepage.

As always, there are also other minor issues which have been addressed in these updates and we plan to bring you some more goodies at the end of the month.
