Suggestions for the Community

We, the Staff of Geeks (@staffofgeeks), want to know what your suggestions are for Geekswithblogs.net. These are your blogs and we want to know what will make your experience better so we can focus on content and not issues. So please post your suggestions and comment on others.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Add a "source code" block to the blog editor

    This would make it much easier to post actual source code without it looking like plain text or a big mess. Many forums have this tool available (e.g. put [source][/source] around the source code) and it would be awesome if GWB had a similar tool.

    • Gist Support

      I wish I could put gists from github.com in my blogposts. I need the ability to use script tags to do so though.

      • 301 redirects so we have one URL

        I would really like to be able to have ONE url for my site. At the moment my google juice is split between http://geekswithblogs.net/hinshelm and http://blog.hinshelwood.com

        I would like to have only http://blog.hinshelwood.com and have all other URL’s 301 to this one. I am happy to support the GWB brand by having a shield on my blog, or to have “Provided by GeeksWithBlogs.net” at the bottom of the template.

          I am definitely leaning your way because we have noticed a drop in Google placement with the custom URLs. We would need to figure out what the link back to GWB would be. More than a side bar badge because the branding is important to searchers who trust GWB content. Would you be apposed to a small 30px bar on the top of the blog with GWB on it and some other tools for readers?

        • Better stats tracking

          The current visit information is useful, but it is very hard to mine. I have also found that it seems to record visits that Google and Statcounter don't through their widgets. It would be great to see this feature enhanced.

            • Fix Post Categories

              I've reported the problem to support@geekswithblogs.com a week ago, but haven't receive any response.

              I've noticed that on my blog in post categories section there were shown some spam links.
              When I opened the same page again, it showed single category "SQL Server 2000" category. On my admin page I have about 20 different categories, including "SQL Server", but not "SQL Server 2000".
              Next time Category section was completely missing. Next time they were development related, but again not mine.
              When I clicked on different categories, it shows 500 or 404 error.
              The same happens, when I clicked a post…

                  • Articles are not visible in admin

                    Previously additionally to posts I've wrote some articles. They we're available as separate section in admin menu with own list of categories, as well as a separate list on blog.
                    Fortunately they are still exist and I was able to find them using Google.
                    E.g. http://geekswithblogs.net/mnf/category/6248.aspx gives me all articles with Helper Classes category. However I couldn't find all of them. 

                    Could you please restore access to articles from both admin and blog pages.

                    • Add the ability to put users in a "group"

                      It would be great if users could create groups and "invite" other people to be in their group, making it easy for users to see blogs/articles written by other people in their group. The idea behind this is our company wants a developers blog, but don't want to host it ourselves. If we could create a "group" that only our staff belong to, then developers would be posting blogs/articles on your site for all to see, but with the main intention that it is useful for other developers at our company.....basically allowing for an easy way for people to see…

                        • Unable to add/edit any posts

                          When I try to edit existing or start new post, in the editing area I see:
                          FreeTextBox has not been correctly installed. To install FreeTextBox either:
                          (1) add a reference to FtbWebResource.axd in web.config:
                          <system.web>
                          <httpHandlers>
                          <add verb="GET"
                          path="FtbWebResource.axd"
                          type="FreeTextBoxControls.AssemblyResourceHandler, FreeTextBox" />
                          </httpHandlers>
                          </system.web>

                          (2) Save the FreeTextBox image and javascript files to a location on your website and set up FreeTextBox as follows
                          <FTB:FreeTextBox id="FreeTextBox1" SupportFolder="ftbfileslocation" JavaScriptLocation="ExternalFile" ButtonImagesLocation="ExternalFile" ToolbarImagesLocation="ExternalFile" ButtonImagesLocation="ExternalFile" runat="server" />

                          Please fix it ASAP, as it prevent to do any work with blogs

                              My google analytics suggest that there is maximum drop in the traffic when my readers are accessing the blog through mobile devices. The zoom in to read content template layout does not work best and needs to be optimized.

                                • Update the platform

                                  Subtext is now 10+ years old. I use Live Writer, but I think a new blogging platform should be investigated. Twitter and Facebook integration, better RSS feeds, performance and other integrations would make GWB somewhere people want to stay and contribute more to.
