    Heya Guys!

    I thought I’d write a quick topic here on the blog about the new web features I have been working on. I was going to write a blog post about it but I figure I’d write it in the forum so that I can encourage people to discuss features of this site here.

    Anyway here’s a quick list of stuff I’ve been working on lately.

    – I added voting polls to the site and there’s now a random rotating voting poll on the sidebar as well as voting polls on certain posts. You can cast your vote and see voting results. Start casting your votes for polls you see popping up around the site.

    – Speaking of things popping up I decided to remove the popup that appears on the left sidebar when you scroll down a page. I was getting some complaints about it and I decided to remove the sticky ad for now.

    – I just got done fixing some things on the shopping cart page so that it’s easier for the user to understand how to sign in during the checkout process.

    – I also made it sexier for people to access their user profile and store account downloads. I’ve developed a more streamlined integration between a user’s store account and their forum account.

    – I cleaned up some little bugs that were happening on certain pages when you viewed the website with an iPad.

    – I fixed some of the Twitter Cards for the pages on this website so that when you tweet URLS from this site they show up on twitter with a sexy card summary.

    I am always working on little things here and there on this website but I thought I’d jot down a quick list of some of the recent things I’ve been working on just in case some of you might be interested to see what I’ve been working on. If anyone has any suggestions feel free to let me know. I’d love to hear your ideas.

    Heya Guys!

    I added some new features to the website over the weekend. Here’s a quick list of new website features.

    – I added a list of recent forum users, recent forum replies, and most viewed posts to the sidebar.

    – I added a newsletter signup form to the sidebar.

    Is there a way to fix the popup about the “new fcp forum”? It will come up multiple times on a site visit, even if you are navigating the forum. It gets a little annoying and is kinda spam looking if you catch my drift. May actually have an opposite effect than what you are trying to accomplish.

      Heya Nathan,

      Thanks for your concern. I understand how annoying it can be to have a popup constantly appear when you’re trying to peacefully browse through a website. I have addressed your concern and removed the popup from the majority of the site, although a popup may still appear when certain video tutorials have finished playing. I hope that helps increase the viewing pleasure of the website for you and others.

    Heya Guys!

    Some new features have been added over the last couple days that have become quite popular. In the sidebar there’s now links to FCPX Keyboard Shortcuts, Motion Keyboard Shortcuts, and our File Size Bitrate Calculator.

    Anyway you can add a “like” function? That way you know people have actually read what you said and instead of commenting, can just hit “like” on what you did ect. ect.

      Heya Nathan!

      Logged in users can rate forum posts with a thumbs up or thumbs down. The person whose post is rated gets a +1 or -1 added to their number under their profile. I’ve been liking your forum posts so your number is getting larger already.

      Ah, you have the post options set to the top of posts, never have seen that before so hadn’t even thought to look there. Thanks
