Big Changes Coming This Weekend!
I was hoping to keep FaveBot under the radar for another week or so. That’s because I have several changes/improvements I need to make and I wanted to do them before a lot of people started using the site. The rash of reviews this week (thanks guys!) has made me accelerate my schedule a bit. So here’s what’s changing:
- Mass Deletion — Right now users are able to delete discoveries one at a time via a button. I’m going to do away with that and instead allow users to select any of the displayed discoveries for deletion. There will be a button to ‘select all’ and another button to delete all the selected discoveries.
- RSS Feeds — At a minimum I’ll provide one RSS feed per user containing the most recent 100 of that user’s discoveries. I’ve had requests for feeds for each tracking’s discoveries as well. In other words, if I’m tracking ‘Facebook Applications’ and ‘Boston Celtics’ I’ll have access to a feed for ‘Facebook Applications’ and a feed for ‘Boston Celtics’. I’ll try to get that working this weekend but that one may take another few days.
- Book Search — You may have noticed that no book discoveries have appeared for you. That’s because I haven’t yet written the book search. That should be working by Monday.
