The broadcast will take place on http://blog.wanken.com/live/ this wednesday (Feb 23, 2011)
Designspiration just received its first major update that adds a number of new features to the site. The whole site was essentially rebuilt from scratch to address a number of updates that needed to happen. There still are a few updates that are in the works, but I’d like to share a few of the new features on the site.
Following system: the following system gives registered users the ability to follow or be follow (much a like Twitter). The images from the people you follow will appear in your “My Following” feed.
Profiles: To access your profile click the ‘My Profile’ link in your dashboard. Profiles give you the ability to share your name and website with other members.
Editing tags: Finally the ability to edit tags. In conjunction with editing tags, titles can also be edited. To edit the tags or title of a post you’ve found, click ‘edit’ under the right hand corner of the image on the single page.
Flagging: No this doesn’t mean nudity is allowed. This is a way for us to keep the quality of content really high. There are two options for flagging images: 1) the image content or 2) the image needs the tags or title updated.
Front page: The front page of the site has been replaced with a feed that is updated daily with images that are becoming popular. This feed of images will always have the best content from throughout the site. It is the feed to Featured subscribe to.
Secret features: Tune into my live broadcast on Wednesday, February 23rd at 12PM Pacific Standard Time to get the lowdown on these features that haven’t yet been released. I will also talk about a couple of updates to the site that will be coming in the following week.
