Version 2.0.1: 2009-06-26

  • Updated to praized-php-2.0.1.

Version 2.0: 2009-04-29

  • Implemented a less intrusive (lightbox-based, optional) authorization process so that users do not completely leave your site to connect your community to their Praized account (see plugin's config screen to enable/disable).
  • Now supporting Facebook Connect to login to the Praized Network when using the new lightbox login (see above). Will also be available in the standard login flow shortly.
  • Implemented the concept of "display name" where appropriate, for people such as Facebook Connect users with non-friendly praized login name.
  • Implemented full user account management functionalities so people can update their Praized account information (password, avatar, social media broadcast settings, etc) right from within your pages, without ever leaving your site.
  • Upgraded the interface of the place and user profiles as a tabbed interface (activity, votes, favorites, comments, etc). SEO or accessibility will no be affected, since the information is still all in the page. The screen is simply reformatted on the fly via css and javascript.
  • Added geo meta and RDF tags to single merchant views for increased semantic and SEO value.

  • Modified the search form widget so that it is automatically hidden when the same form is shown in the main content area (see above).
  • Implemented a new search results header which mentions the number of results found.
  • Extracted the main section links (Top Places, The Local Buzz and Questions & Answers) from the Praized Session widget and created a stand-alone Praized Section widget as a navigation only tool.
  • Exposed the place tagging and commenting functionalities for non-logged in users and made it so that the submitted data (tags, comment) is preserved and processed at the end of the login process if required (like we've done for votes and such in v1.6).
  • Added a new help section for the Praized functionalities. Note that the content we display in this page is actually stored on our server (but cached on yours), so you will get any updates we make automatically as we release them.
  • Added an upgrade notification mechanism so you don't miss out on important new changes when upgrading to a new version of the plugin.

  • If a user tries to vote, post a question or post an answer while not logged in to the Praized Network, their action is now processed after they sign in. EG: vote while logged out -> redirect login + authorize -> back to merchant -> vote is counted
