BN 3.0: Updates, Fixes and Improvements

We are well underway with the launch of BN 3.0.

As with anything new, there was a lot of confusion and resistance, so we put together a guide to help with the most basic functions of the site.

Apparently that still wasn't enough, and we know some folks still have issues with the new format.

The SB Nation gang has been busy fixing bugs and making improvements that will hopefully begin to enhance everyone's experience and forget the previous version of the site. Beginning today, everyone should see the fruit of their labor. Here are the main items they tackled:

  • Increased the amount the number of recommended and recent FanPosts on the homepage
  • Changed the styles to improve scanning of FanPosts and FanShot headlines and new comments on the homepage
  • Added author bylines on Articles in the cover
  • Added indicator if articles or features are from another SB Nation site when placed on the homepage
  • Added article headline to comments on user profile recent activity list for better reply context
  • Reinstated the ability for users to add polls to FanPosts
  • Reinstated accurate comment counts on StoryStream updates in the cover
  • Reinstated ability for authors to add custom captions to photos
  • Trending Stories are now relevant to league of the team or sport the blog covers
  • Fixed issue with Shift-A keyboard shortcut for comments not working properly in large threads
  • Fixed issue with logos that break out of the circle getting cropped
  • Fixed issue where new comment count was incorrect on FanShots posted from another site
  • Fixed issue with filters not working on FanShot index page
  • Fixed Facebook login issues
  • Improved visibility of next and previous arrows on photo galleries
  • Added correct author names to the FanPosts page
  • Mobile optimization improvements

This is a dynamic effort and hopefully we are getting close to a site that will please all of you.

Constructive complaints are still welcome.

Go Bruins.
