The upcoming RefinedWiki Original Theme 3.1 release is one of our largest releases so far. We are currently in beta and plan to release the 3.1 version in a couple of weeks. Today, RefinedWikis CEO Jimmy Lundstrom is announcing some of the new features at the Atlassian Unite event in Frankfurt. Here is a summary of the upcoming version.
The new blog mode allows you to turn a space blog in to a "real" blog in terms of behavior and design. The look and feel can easily be customized and sharing to Twitter, Facebook and Google is just a click away. The blogs are easy to access through the new namespace: www.yourwiki.com/blog. The navigation between different blog posts are improved with a new calendar and with next / previous buttons.
We have made three improvements to the category menu:
- Category and space logos can now be displayed in the menu.
- An automatic horizontal scroll will appear when there are too many categories.
- Introducing a dynamic category mode. The size of the drop down will adjust to the number of subcategories and spaces in each category.
Activity Stream Popup
The activity stream is accessible from any page in your wiki. Access it through the top menu or by the keyboard shortcut F (shift + f).
Improved admin UI
The admin UI is more solid and consistent. Sorting items is done with drag and drop.
Front end improvements
We have done a lot of under the hood changes. Basically all of our front end functions like: categories, blogs and macros are now loading its data from our REST API. This makes the UI nice and quick. We are also adding the HTML5 article tag to all pages and blog posts. The article tag is used by a lot of devices to display a more readable view of the content.
