Wis.community Memberships

December 26, 2016

We are now set up so that you can contribute to the growth and development of Wis.community. Y, and pay with Paypal, check, or with a credit card. Money from memberships will be used to help defray the cost of the site - and we're also working on some new benefits that you will get with a membership.

New Training Videos

December 23, 2016

We now have some to learn how to better use Wis.Community.  I'm just getting started on creating these - not that this is a playlist player, so you can either watch them all, or pick a selected one with the drop-down menu at the top left corner.

New Questionnaire

December 11, 2016

Hi -

If you get a chance, it would be great if you could take just a minute or two to fill out our latest questionnaire. These really help us to figure out what should be worked on, and what your interests are.

Maps on Events

December 5, 2016

Well, it's always something. 

Fixed - life is happy again

Events that have been added to the site recently don't end up with maps being generated. This is due to some changes that Google has made to their API's - and the code that generates coordinates for the maps is at the moment broken.  I am chasing down a resolution to the problem - but it may be another day or two. 

Moving forward - Partnerships

The site is slowly becoming more fleshed out, with additional functionality. Some of the exciting things happening:

Groundsource

October 24, 2016

I'm talking to the good folks at at the moment - I'm interested in the possiblity of gathering info from folks in the community by text message, and this is an intriguing platform for that. There's an interesting article at Nieman Lab about the use of the platform in journalism.

Let us know if this sounds intriguing to you.

Facebook Events

October 19, 2016

We are now importing some events in from Facebook -- they will show up in Black on the calendar, as do all the events that are imported in from other calendars on the Internet.  The Facebook events all have links that go to the actual Facebook event - but we pull them all here into one place for you.

Responsive Videos

October 12, 2016

The videos on the site are all now responsive ( or should be) so they will now fit on different sizes of screens properly. This requires more testing.

Search fixed on site

October 11, 2016

Nobody has complained about it, but the search function on the site has been mildly broken for a long time --- it would work once, then return the same search results for about 15 minutes, and then work once again. This was a bad caching configuration on the site.  You should now be able to search much more successfully.  My apologies.

Wis.community general info

October 11, 2016

Wis.community is several things:

  • A collection of “mini-sites” or communities based on topic or location

  • Discussion areas in each community that can be carried on either on the site or via email or text messaging (soon)

  • Event calendars for each community, and an aggregated calendar of all of the communities

  • Spaces for news and resources in each community

Wiscommunity - fixed a few errors

October 6, 2016

Though I suspect this probably only affected me at the moment, there've been a few serious issues in editing on the site. This cropped up from some setting changes I'd made recently while trying to debug a different problem on the site. Sigh.  Anyway, I'd accidentally set the site to use a version of jquery that broke some of the editing, particularly things that had popups. This mostly made it impossible to change the image at the top of each community page.

Hi -

This is the Wiscommunity space. It's the place for discussion about Wiscommunity, how it should be developing, issues with the site, and what the future holds.
