Some quick tweaks and fixes


Article by PerrinAshcroft posted Thursday 18th November 2010

Our broken Twitter integration has been bugging me for a while so I decided to have a quick look at it yesterday. Most of you have probably been getting an unhelpful "User not found" error message recently. Well now instead you should get a nice little box showing your last 5 tweets.

While I was in the code I also added a "Recent Forum Activity" section to profile overviews. Which will show the last 5 threads a user has been posting in.

Also by popular request the costume list on event pages is now ordered by series instead of character name.

I know there are more important better features you guys want for the site but this was quick stuff I did while avoiding my paying work. So hopefully you'll enjoy them anyway.

One note about the Twitter integation, if you've got your Twitter account set to private it does break things a little and will ask anyone who visits your profile for a username/password. I would suggest either unprotecting your account or not including your Twitter name in your Cosplay Island profile until I can figure out a more elegant way of dealing with protected Twitter accounts.
