Today we posted changes to your home page. Now your home page shows you your most relevant content from the groups you've joined and the threads you've participated in. New posts for the groups you've joined show up right below your group icons. Your most recently updated threads you've participated in right below that. Finally, your latest posts right below that.

Also, in a continued effort to separate Prestwood IT from PrestwoodBoards, the Prestwood IT specific groups and topics no longer show up on the group list nor on the groups menu.

23. Message Board Ranks

Our Prestwood Community rank titles are based on Star Trek's Starfleet Officer Ranks. I know, I know, it's a bit geeky, but what the heck. You rise up in the ranks by earning Prestwood points with our Member Points Program. You earn points by participating in our online community: visit, post, etc. You can spend your points in our online store.

Cadet 1st Year=O-0,  Lieutenant=O-3, Commodore=F-1, more...

The easiest way to earn points is to visit daily and post to our Prestwood Message Boards.

31. New Feature: Anonymous Posts!

Over the years we've had many requests for the ability to post anonymously. Today I add the ability to both reply to message board threads anonymously as well as to knowledge base posts. You still need an account if you wish to start a new message board thread or post a knowledge base article. In addition, you can now use the special 'devnull@prestwood.com' email address if you wish to create an account but not use a valid email address.

37. New Prestwood Study Tests

 Although our Prestwood Certified area is currently in beta, our study tests are available now. Each study test features beginner, intermediate, and advanced questions. Although we have to add many more questions, the tests are live now and usable for study and review. The purpose of our study tests is to learn and review. You hover over answers to reveal the correct answer. Each question features a pop up [Review] link of study material. Test yourself and review concepts you are not familiar with.

New:  Check out our study tests...

Study, review, learn.

39. New Version of Cross Reference Encyclopdedia

I deployed yet another new version of my Cross Reference Computer Language Encyclopedia. This new version of the software that drives the cross reference data includes fixing defects and some minor enhancements.

Check it out...

The Cross Reference Encyclopedia is also available from the pulldown menu (Programmer Community | Cross Reference Encyclopedia). Enhancements and fixes included:

  • CrossRef stats replaced the ambiguous "Version 1.1a" on the main CrossRef page:
  • Numerous browsing defects fixed. Previously, clicking around led to some unexpected data showing and in some cases no data.
  • Removed "View All" option and replaced it with a shorter "Overview" page. The "View All" page was getting too long to be of much use so I transitioned to a browse feature. You can still print out each category so "grabbing" a printable version is still possible.

52. Rich Editor: Spell checking

Spell checking is available in our rich editor for IE and Gecko based browsers such as Firefox and Safari. We use our rich editor in many areas of our community such as message boards, knowledge base, job postings, resumes, etc. For IE, there is an icon on the editor's toolbar. For Gecko based browsers such as Firefox and Safari, browser enabled spell checking is active. Spell checking is not available for Google Chrome. Currently Chrome's spell checking is not compatible with IFrames so you have spell checking OUTSIDE our editor.
