The Plerb community has a lot of great people with a lot of great suggestions. We'll try to document the new featues and updates we make here.
We can now report posts to moderators.
We can now log in with our username or email address.
Updated some code to increase performance. Also temporarily removed the feed-sort function.
Normally when someone replies to a post, the post will move to the top of our feed. Some people have asked if we could sort our feed only by the descending dates of the posts (and disregard the dates of the replies) – and now we can! If we look out our home sidebar, we see that the default sort is "Replies". If you click that link, it will change to "Posts". You can easily toggle back and forth.
Links will now work in the "Bio" section of our profile.
Added a section showing the users who've received the most replies for the week.
Paging has been added to the user home pages. In the future, we may change this to an infinite scroll (or use a "More Posts" button).
This is a new page for browsing the community. We're going to add many new features to this page in the coming months.
Usernames can now be changed by going to Settings > Username.
Replies can be deleted by clicking on the timestamp of the post and then clicking the "delete" link next to the reply. You can delete your own replies and you can also delete replies by other people to your posts.
Private messages can be deleted by clicking the "delete" link next to the timestamp.
We can now like people's posts.
The post deletion functionality has been added to the post page. Click on the timestamp of your post to get to the post page.
Post Replies Option:
If you go to Settings > Options, you can change your reply setting to allow replies from everyone or just friends.
A new private messaging system has been implemented.
We can now block users by going to the their profile and clicking the "Block" link.
Now when we prefix someone's username with @, it will link to their profile.
There was a bug when uploading background images and profile images. These functions have been updated.
We can now post emojis in posts, first names, last names, and bios.
Plerb is growing fast and that puts a lot of strain on our server, so we've upgraded it.
And many more...
Note: When we add updates, it may cause downtime for a few minutes.
