Keyword Suggestion Tool:
We're recording all keywords entered when you are creating an article, and now we're giving you a way to use that data. During the first stage of your article posting you will now see a black bubble pop up and suggest a word to you as you type. This will help you know what keywords are used by other people as well as ensure you are spelling them correctly as you enter.
This is a suggestion tool only, and you are not required to pick a keyword from this list. In fact, we encourage you to enter new keywords to accurately reflect your post. Only use a suggested keyword if it accurately describes the nature of your article.
Duplicate Check Now Sorted By Date:We have debated this like crazy, but we've found a solution that will satisfy everyone. When you search for a duplicate now, it will search by relevance and return the top 20 relevant results. However, those results are then sorted by date.
Important Tab RSS Feeds:
Last week saw the introduction of new time periods for the "Important" tab on the front page. Now you can get an RSS feed for each, so you can stay on top of important news Now, Today, This Week, Month, Ever and Editor's Picks.
Tweaked Image Upload:
You can now tag images with keywords from the upload window while posting an article and give it a description at the same time. The difference now is that description will be recorded to that photo, so if another user decides to use it in the future, your description will stay with the photo. This is meant to cut back on users posting irrelevant photos with stories -- one user recently confused Defense Secretary Robert Gates with Microsoft chairman Bill Gates :)
AddThis Button Added:
The new "AddThis" button on the bottom of each article will now let you quickly add a DigitalJournal.com article to another site like Digg, Del.icio.us, Reddit, Stumbleupon and many more. If you find something you like, spread the word!
