I've made a few changes today:
- One criticism often received is that the list of themes is growing larger every year and there's no easy way to view similar ones, e.g. all girls themes, or all historical themes. As a step towards remedying that, the all themes list on the Browse page (when not viewing the lists as clouds) is now grouped, logically I hope.
- A number of security vulnerabilities that were pointed out by an AFOL security consultant have been addressed. The changes should not have affected the site from working correctly, but if you do notice anything that's broken, please let me know.
- There is now a 'reads' count shown next to news articles. Counting stared at 9am GMT+1 this morning. This will enable us to see which articles are 'hot' and once I know what number constitutes a 'hot' articles I may well indicate them as such. It doesn't update immediately, as the data is cached for a while, for performance reasons.
- I'm often asked to change people's user name which I can do, but only by delving into the database manually. So, I've added an option on the 'Your profile' page so you can now do it yourself. Changes are tracked for auditing purposes.
