Dark Mode

Posted by Matt Collinge element14 Team Jun 20, 2018
I've been toying with the idea of a Dark Mode/theme for Community.. but then stumbled across this Chrome Extension which does a pretty good job on any site, without the need for any coding   https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/dark-reader/eimadpbcbfnmbkopoojfekhnkhdbieeh     It's not perfect, but in general it works well & is worth a look if you want to give your eyes a rest. ...
In the release last month, we fixed video uploads so that webinars/screencasts get encoded with a higher resolution. This is especially useful when they show code snippets or IDEs.   However, what we also needed to do is go back and re-encode all the existing videos with this new HD profile, which is something we completed yesterday.   You should now find that any screencasts show a HD indicator & a quality selector like this;     Here are a few examples;   ht ...
(I've been so busy lately I'd forgotten to post these updates.. )   Our next site update is due in early July and will fix a number of issues we've found after the platform upgrade we performed in May. Many of the issues were due to changes by the vendor; our team has fixed a lot of them, but we're still waiting on them for other bug fixes, such as code getting stripped out of the editor, and the annoying jump to the top of the page which has returned. We do our best to test each site upda ...

Hello everyone!   ... yes, I live! And before I continue, i want to preface that everything is (now) fine.   First and foremost, I want to apologize for being rather absent these past few weeks (month?). A medical emergency around Thanksgiving sent me to the hospital and I spent most of December on medical leave. It was rather unexpected, and I honestly had no idea how long I was going to be out, hence the lack of forewarning or appropriate measures taken to ensure everything was cov ...

The Christmas elves have been busy having a look at the settings we use for user-uploaded videos.   Low Bitrate Videos   We had an issue with low bitrate high resolution videos (typically exported Webex presentations with text on slides) being blurry and unreadable. We worked with the engineers at Brightcove (who's video platform we utilise behind the scenes) and we've deployed a fix for that today, so all new videos won't suffer from that problem.   If you spot any older video ...
This week we deployed our last site update of 2017.. this year has flown by!   Here are the highlights from the release   We've added a new consumer (i.e. non-business) purchase option for UK-based members.

The gamification/points issue is now fully resolved (you'll see points back on the profile pages and activity stream) Newly uploaded videos have a proper title ...
  At midday UK time (12 GMT) today our network team activated a feature called HTTP/2 (or h2 for short) for our Community website. You might notice pages loading slightly faster than they did before. There shouldn't be any other differences. Hit us up in the comments if you spot anything odd happening.   Technical overview   HTTP/2 is major revision of the HTTP network protocol used by the World Wide Web which received major browser support from 2015 onward.   Instead of ...

For the last 4 months we've been busy working on upgrading the platform that Community runs on. For those of you who are interested, it's been upgraded from Jive 8 to Jive 9. Although the process was nowhere near as complicated as our previous upgrades, it still takes us time to migrate some of our customisations, and we take the opportunity to rewrite portions of code, fix outstanding bugs, and implement a few new features whilst we're at it   Core Product Improvements   There are ...
