Arbor Update updates

We’ve done some minor updates of the software. The only user-visible change is that you should only have to pass the “image verification” step one more time; subsequent comments with the same user name and email will skip that step.

If you notice any problems, please let us know here or by email to arborupdate at umich.edu.

Any other problems or requests are welcome as well.

New short link posts:

There have been a number of links from the comments and in our inbox that deserve special attention, so we’ve added a new short-format post to accommodate them. They will contain a simple title, description, and link, but not discussion threads.

I’m still tweaking the design and implementation, and any feedback is welcome.

[Amended 8/29 by Matt]



  1. Hey, look it still posts comments. So hopefully it’s not completely broken.

  2. Is it just me, or were links once converted?

    http://example.com

    * Item 1 * Item 2 * Item 3

  3. You’ve always had to do "link name":http://example.com to get a link like link name. It doesn’t automatically convert http://example.com to a link. Yeah, it might be nicer if it did.
