August Updates

Patch Notes · Aug 29, 2016


Are you prepared for World of Warcraft's latest expansion, Legion, launching in mere hours!? We hope so, and to help gear Shivtr up we've pushed live a round of bugfixes and enhancements to the site =)

Facebook Groups Integration
For sites on our Legendary plan, we support sharing news on Facebook as your user account and any pages you have admin for. Today we have updated this to also support groups!

* to share to a group you will need to be an admin for it.

Recruiting Improvements
Applicants can now only have one "open" application to your site. If they attempt to apply again they will be notified of their existing app, and if they are allowed to view it they will be shown it. The status bar has been updated for guests as well, showing "App Submitted" or "View My App" when they have an open app.

Misc
  • Demon Hunters have been added as a class option, along with those pesky Gnome Hunters
  • Warcraft character profiles have been updated to the new Legion stats
  • Some games auto-added to our games DB were being added with some missing data; this has now been fixed
  • The Mobile site will no longer show premium features on the home page if you are on the free plan
  • A bug with forum subscriptions that caused some members to keep receiving notifications when they should not be has been fixed
  • A bug causing Item Tooltips for GW2 to stop working has been fixed
  • Additional servers for Noise have been added for the TeamSpeak block

For WoW players have fun in Legion this week, and for everyone else we hope you've had a great summer of gaming! =)

Neverwinter Item Tooltips

Patch Notes · Jul 13, 2016


Today we have Neverwinter item tooltips to announce, along with a few smaller changes.

Neverwinter Item Tooltips
Neverwinter communities can now create Item Tooltips by linking to items on Neverwinter Unleashed. Simply search for the item you want to create a tooltip for on their site, then copy its url and use it on your Shivtr site =)

Rename SiteApps
You can now rename SiteApps if you have the SiteApps moderate permission. This can be useful if say, someone applied with an alt and you want to change it to their main, or if you reference back to SiteApps frequently while managing your guild.

Misc
  • Fullscreen is now enabled for YouTube video embeds
  • On Mobile you can now switch to the Desktop client and back again
  • Fixed a bug with Alliances and MultiGame sites
  • Several 406 errors have been corrected that were due to missing templates from the rewritten mobile client

That's all for this update, Happy Gaming! =)
