1) New games supported in Scores and Profiles:

Battlefield 2142
City of Heroes (Note: Villain classes are also included here)
Star Wars Galaxies (elder + new classes)

2) Added a field for PVP Ranking on your Scores & Profiles page

- Included the new Arena ranks for WoW (we aren't including the old PVP Honor ranks, since Blizzard said they are obsolete, but we're still open to it if this is something very important to most people).

- Included the PVP ranks for Everquest 2

- PVP Rank is used for your "rank" in Battlefield 2142

Release Notes, Dec. 21-2006
Blog Enhancements & External Blog Feeds

We now allow you to place the entire text of your most recent blog entry within your personal page. If you have at least one blog entry, you'll see that you can now edit a pulldown-box that controls location. This can be the top of your page (in one column), the bottom, or a double-column span.

In addition, those of our members who maintain a blog that's separate from GuildCafe's internal blogging system can now link to their blog. To do this, use the same pulldown box described above, except choose to pull from an "External Feed." You'll be prompted to supply a URL. Supply the URL of an RSS-compatible feed (anything from RSS version 0.8 to 2.0 is fine). Please do *not* provide the direct URL to the HTML view of your blog, because we actually probe your RSS feed directly and incorporate your latest entry onto your page, similar to if you maintained a blog directly on GuildCafe.

Embed Videos in your posts, blogs, and group (guild/clan, or otherwise) pages:




We currently support Google Video and Youtube. To do Google, video, do:

Code:
[google ]7280235615413631189[ /google]
...Where you replace that number with the code document ID of your video. For Youtube, it's like this:

Code:
[ youtube]12PsUW-8ge4[ /youtube]
...Where you replace the alphanumeric string with the same string that's after the "v=" in the URL of a Youtube video. In both of these, make sure you don't include the spaces that I added.

Other

  • Added Pirates of the Caribbean and America's Army to the standard game pulldown
  • Fixed problem with deleting friends from the Flash friend navigator
  • Fixed problem where you sometimes saw your friends on the Their Friends tab in the Flash friend navigator
  • Fixed problem where the content of blog entries with the ITEM bbcode could break your personal page
  • Fixed problem with items added to one character in Scores and Profiles could show up on another character
  • A few cosmetic improvements to the Scores and Profiles pages

* Tagspace is smarter: you can page through all the people who have tagged with something now, and can switch between an avatar-view (8 per page) and a condensed list (64 per page). If the tag is listed as a game in our system, we automatically show you some statistics for that game (like the top servers, and so forth) as well as a selection of comments that people had about the game, extracted from their personal pages.

Added games to standard list:

* Marathon Trilogy (opted to keep them in one group)
* Halo 3 (anticipated)
* Half Life, Half Life: Source, Half-Life 2
* Gears of War

New Features - group/guild/clan pages
Sunday January 7, 2007
  • If a member of a group has not provided a character on their Scores & Profiles page, they'll still list on your roster now (albeit without any information beyond their member name).
  • Many new features available on Advanced Themes: more color choices, background images.
  • Members of the same rank will now list together on the member setup tab.
  • On the main group setup tab, you may now specify a default game from a drop-down menu. This will pre-select the game for the roster display, so that you can show characters by default who are relavent to your group/guild/clan.
  • On the recruiting setup tab, you can now select an additional option: "Allow members to add themselves," which places your group into an "open enrollment" mode. In other words, anyone is able to join your group without gaining your approval.
  • The charts should be working a bit better.
  • Views are now tracked on threads in group areas.
  • When editing a new event, the correct date should now be recorded at all times.
  • This build includes some behind-the-scenes work for additional group-pages functions coming soon. There are also a number of bug fixes.

Under Construction Unwanted background images
Strange background images may appear on existing Websites on GuildCafe. You will need to go to your themes tab and either re-choose your theme and apply it. Or if you had an custom advanced theme enter the word "none" in the form fields calling for background images.

Added support for Scores & Profiles for a couple of upcoming games: Age of Conan and Vanguard. You can now list the character races/classes you are playing (in beta) or plan to play (at launch). We'll continue to add more of this information for upcoming games once complete, concrete lists are available.

January 24, 2007 -- Integrated a chat system with GuildCafe


You asked for it, you got it

We've added the initial support for a chat system to the site.

To access it, go here: http://www.guildcafe.com/chat

We'll be customizing it with additional themes, and defining what the rooms will be like. Please give it a try and tell us what you think. We'll add more obvious links (such as to the toolbar) once it's endured a bit more testing.

March 25, 2007

Lots of new functionality is in the process of being rolled out. For today, the following features have been added to guild/clan pages (accessed via the Group option on the toolbar):

Subdomain Support

You may now specify a subdomain for your group page which gives you an easier domain that you can share with your friends. For example, "s1.guildcafe.com" automatically forwards to the Section One guild page. To specify a subdomain for your group: Go to your Guild/Group Home page; pick "Manage" (if you have administrative access to your group), and from the main setup menu you will see a field for "subdomain" at the top of the page. Set this to any alphanumeric string, and save. (If you the subdomain is already in use by someone else, it will stop you and require you to enter something instead).

Multiple Sub-Forums in Group areas

Multiple sub-forums on your guild page. This has been a popular request amongst many of our users! You can now specify multiple sub-forums, and each forum may have an access level of "Public," "Member" or "Officer." Since the old system only allowed one forum per group page, all existing forums have been named "Public."

The access controls for each forum is specified for your member ranks. You'll notice that for each rank (access via group page -> Manage -> Ranks) there are no access control settings for Public, Member and Officer forums. These permissions correllate to the access-levels you specify when configuring a forum. For example, if you create a Public-level forum, you can allow everyone to read it by granting "Public" access to any of the ranks you'd like to be able to view it. (Note that the name "Public" is just a label; it is possible for you to configure it so that nobody can read a Public forum--and in fact, if your group area was previously private, you'll find that your newly renamed Public forum is only available to your members with the right access).

To create new forums, modify the access level for a forum, or rename an existing one, go to your group page, select "Manage," and then choose the "Forums" tab.

Group-page breadcrumbs

Now that group pages can host a list of different forums, we've added some "breadcrumb" navigation to group pages, to make it easier for you to jump between threads, forums and the overall group-forums list.

Added "New Posts" button to group pages

When you click this option, you'll see all of the new posts in a group area, similar to the "New Posts" option on the top of the toolbar within the general forums of GuildCafe.

Other/Minor

- Fixed some graphical problems in the group pages that caused some text to be invisible
- Added "Rubies of Eventide" to standard game list

Coming soon...

Now that the above changes have been made, along with a number of hidden architectural changes, the next step is to integrate it better with the rest of GuildCafe. What this means is that we'll be making it possible for the "New Posts" and "Forums" buttons that currently look in the GuildCafe forums only to also scan through any of the groups (guilds, clans, etc.) that you're a member of. This will make it easier to check everything that is new, without needing to bounce around to different sections.

In addition, PlayerVox will be rolling out this week with a bunch of original content, as well as an RSS feed for it and a few links within the site to help you find the new content.

Guild Leaders Unite at GuildCafe
Getting guild members to read your guild forums is like pulling teeth (I know, I am a GL). It's a habit you want members to get into though because as a guild leader forums are your best tool for advertising events, explaining rules, introducing new members, etc. Its probably fair to equate guild forum activity with a guild's overall health and longevity.

The new features GuildCafe is adding over the next few days should help guild leaders a lot by giving guilds hosting on GuildCafe have a head start on building participation on their private forums. Now their members can simply visit their personal pages and click on . They'll see all the new posts for their guild as well as all the new posts on GuildCafe in one list! This assures that when your members make that rare foray to check out the forums there is always something new to read. Or vice versa, if your member are checking out GuildCafe forums, now they'll instantly see that their are new items in their guild's private area.
