Greetings Christian Bloggers!
Today is the second day of the 2016 year and we are already hard at work!
We are happy to announce that we have updated our Prayer Needs section of the CB website!
Here are the current changes:
- Notifications: Instead of sending out email notifications to those who have subscribed to receive new prayer needs, we are now sending out website alerts, and email notifications, to all of your friends! This is a huge change that we feel will really help let those closest to you know that you have a prayer need.
- Prayer Needs now have their own dedicated page. See, for example, this prayer need, which is totally separated from all the other prayer needs.
- We have shrunk the avatars a tiny bit, and relocate the print and report buttons.
- We have made the prayer needs load about 400x faster.
- We are now displaying more prayer needs.
But we are not stopping there - soon to be added to the Prayer Needs will be the following features:
- Notifications/alerts will be able to be turned off on a prayer-by-prayer basis. If you post a comment on a prayer than do not want to receive any additional alerts/notifications, you will be able to turn off those notifications.
- Mark As Answered. This new feature will allow you to mark a specific prayer need as 'answered'.
- Make Publically Viewable. With the introduction of the individual page per prayer need (a new feature just introduced) we will be able to offer the ability for individual prayer needs to be publically/globally viewable. This option will allow you to share your prayer needs with those who are not members of the ChristianBlog.Com website. All prayers will start off as being only viewable to those who are ChristianBlog.Com members (and not within your ignore list, of course) for privacy, but this soon to be added option will allow you greater privacy/sharing!
- The ability to view additional prayer needs on the main prayer needs page.
Feedback on the current changes, and the future changes, are welcomed. If you encounter any issues with the new Prayer Needs section of the CB website please submit a ticket so we can look into it.
2016 will be the Year of Prayer here at ChristianBlog.Com!
