New Features/Changes in Version 8.0|
Version 8.0 was a labor of love and is a rewrite from scratch. We took this opportunity to review our 7 year history OF offering this resource and any of YOUR requests have been written into v8.
Nearly 40% of the code in v8 is directly related to anticipating your entries, moves, needs and desires. In fact there are hundreds of new features, coded in to make WOTW8 smarter. Here is a partial list of just some of the changes.
New Features (partial list)
- New Sections - Two new group sections have been added; 'Military' and 'Healing/Recovery'. To enhance the group listings we have also added Egroups for your area. Also new is 'Pagan Clergy' (both registered and not) - This promises to offer a nice resource for those that are looking to be legally handfasted
- Navigation - Much work was done to maximize your options based on who you are and where you are.
- Smart pages - Sidebar modules know what section you are in and offer you 'new listings', search options and other treats related to the same.
- Live Traffic/Listing Stats - From any section in your area you can see the listings totals LIVE as they come in.
- Modular Design - Future enhancements and add-ons will be much easier to implement.
- New Countries - a few dozen new countries NOW have their own full featured section in v8.
- Sponsors moved up - WOTW8 is available because a few hundred Pagans help to pay the bills. Sponsor Links are proudly displayed at the top of your main area page and 'lead' most of the section listings.
- New Help System - Extensive 'smart help' is written to v8 and the 'help' menu is always just a click away.
- Smart World Menus - Quick links to parts of your country are available depending on what country you are in.
- New Email Contact System - Emailing anyone of the 60,000 plus listings has never been easier and you can now CC a copy to yourself if you choose. - Also included are blocks for outside spammers and more sophisticated error checking.
- Notices - We have rewritten both global and local notices options to better define the type of notice. - Local notices appear (after approval) on your area page. - Global notices do not.
- Wren's Nest Local News - New in v8; Pagan news for YOUR area will appear on your State/Prov/Country page.
- Broadcast Global - v8 has the option to broadcast important news to the world or to the State/Prov/Country.
- Broadcast YOU - v8 has the ability to send you info about your account and display it only to you on any of 5000 wotw pages.
It is YOU that have made this part of the Witches' Voice the most extensive and diverse on the Pagan Net. Our mission statement is one of education of who we are and what we do, this is served most effectively, face to face, in your town. Thank YOU for what you are doing and for what you will continue do.
- Master Account Control - From a single account control panel you can control key data in all of your listings. Your Name, location, Pagan spam option, and your email address when changed will play out to ALL of your listing instantly.
- Live Editing - All listings (except notices and pictures) are NOW LIVE. You control your listings... Post new, Edit, or remove any of your listings or Your Master account and ALL of listings with a click or two.
- Smarter/Leaner forms - All forms have been rewritten to be leaner (easier to fill out) and smarter. It is rare that you will be asked for the same info from one form to the next.
- New Personals Info - Due to your requests we have added many new 'optional' fields to the personal profile listings. - This will help you to search out many of like kind from all over the world
- 2nd Email - The option to use a secondary email address for group, shop and event listings has been added - This 2nd email is also cloaked from the spammers.
- Your Listings - From a single page you can view ALL of your active listings and edit or remove them at will.
- Your Photo - You can now add (pending approval) , change or delete a personal image... This will be displayed in your personal, clergy and skills listings.
- No Pagan Spam Option - With a single click in your 'main settings' YOU choose where you want anonymous invites or sales email to you. This will play out to all of your listings.
- Your Traffic - v8 counts the times your listing (s) have been viewed AND the number of emails sent to your listings. You can view Your live stats at any time via the 'Your Traffic' link when you are logged in.
- Moving - If you move from one state/province to another you effect ALL of your listings with a single click.
- Enhanced Events - Dated events are saved EVEN after they happen. This offers you the ability to pull up past events, re-date them into the future, tweak them, and viola, they are live again. - a nice timesaving treat for those with annual festivals and the like.
- View in Place - When you create a new listing or edit an existing one, you are automatically sent to your area page so that you can view it 'in place' - This is the best way to really see your listing AND make any additional tweaks that you deem necessary.
- Quik Edits - As long as you are logged in you can edit (or remove) your listings directly in your state page... v8 knows who you are and that you are looking at one OF YOUR listings.
- Email to YOU - the email system has been rewritten to tell YOU which one of your listings you are being email from and captures the ip of the sender (for your security and safety) .
Witches of the World version 8.0 was released on 11/25/2003 in honor of the Spirit. Use it with our blessings.
