New features on International School Community #1: The new and improved School Profile Page!
January 31, 2012
International School Community’s goal is to have a website where the information that international school teachers want to know about is very easy to find. Thus we are always working on improving the organization of our website and its features to better serve our members.
Recently, we have made some changes on our school profile page:
We now have 1083 (31 January, 2012) international school profile pages on our website. On each school provide pages there are many, many different features and information. One of the most important sections on this page is where members can read and submit comments and information.
In turn, our comments and information section has been revamped. Now the four comment categories (School Information, Benefits Information, City Information and Travel Information) are on tabs. This change was made so that members could go from one section to the other much easier and faster.
The City and Travel Information sections have also changed. Now they been linked up with other school profile pages that share they same city. For example, if a members has left comments and information in the City Information section on an international school in Shanghai, those submitted comments will now show up on all the other international schools in Shanghai listed on our website! Now it will be much easier to access information about the city and travel information on international school profile pages that share the same city!
Another improvement made has been with how our members view, write, submit, and then edit or delete their submitted comments on each school profile page. For each topic in the four comment sections members will now be able to only view the last 3-4 comments submitted and the dates they were submitted.
Then to read all the comments that have actually been submitted, members can now click on the “Show more” link. In a pop-up screen members will be able to read every submitted comment and information (in full) for that section’s topic. Members can also submit a new comment on this pop-up screen at the bottom.
From this pop-up screen members are now able to edit or delete one of their previously submitted comments. Only the member that has submitted the comment will see the “Edit” and “Delete” buttons; other members are not able to edit or delete other member’s comments.
There are more improvements to come!
