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?

        • 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…

          • Enable delete of URL links

            Is is possible to have anoption whereby URL links on comments can be deleted without dropping the rest rest of the comment. The reason I ask this is that I receive many comments that are just an excuse to post a link to some other site.
