2021 Upgrade


Recommended Posts

Hello all, as you've no doubt noticed, we're in the process of upgrading Shetlink.

There will inevitably be a few bumps along the way and it'll take us a peerie while to rebuild a few features but please bear with us.

All feedback, good and bad, is welcomed!

New (or fixed!) features

  • Mobile friendly formatting
  • Streamlined code, which should mean pages load faster
  • Facebook / Twitter / Google login - you can use your existing online accounts to log in to Shetlink
  • Private Messaging is back!
  • Forum activity stream - you can see what's new in one place
  • Post reactions - you add a thumbs up, thanks, love etc to posts
  • Tagging members in posts - you can use the '@' symbol to @membername someone in a post
  • More, and better organised, feeds with links to external sites (news, jobs, Njord classifieds, images from photo sharing apps etc)

In case anyone is wondering, the feeds are all content that the original publishers have made publicly available for sharing. With some technical jiggery pokery at this end we collate the links and present them to Shetlink visitors - we don't actually store any of the publishers' content on our servers and each of the feeds have no more than 25 of the latest links. We want highlight the excellent content that Shetlanders are producing!

Hi @BigMouth. You can change your notification settings by clicking the peerie bell at the top of the page when you're logged in, and a link called 'notification settings' should be available in the top right of the pop-up window.

From there you should be able to set the frequency and type of notifications.

Let us know how you get on.
