Add Users

We’ve activated the ability to add users to your blog as subscribers, writers, administrators, etc… 

Right now this feature is under testing as we consider it for use. Please report any bad or exceptionally good experiences you have using the feature. 

You can access the add user function from the Add New link under the Users tab of your dashboard.

Friends System Online

We’ve initiated a Friends social networking system for onMason. As of this week you will be able to friend other bloggers, be friended by other bloggers and assign an avatar to both your username and each of your blogs.

There are now two associated widgets that are available on all blogs. The friends widget allows you to display the other onMason bloggers that you are following. The blog avatar widget allows you to display the avatar you assign to your blog. 

You can access the friends system through your dashboard. There you can find friends by email or username. You can also see your current friends and see notifications about who is has marked you as a friend. When you friend another onMason user you will receive an email notification unless you have marked to not allow onMason to send you emails.

Global Tags now Initiated

You can now find global tags for all onMason blogs through our global posts area.

The color scheme is not final.

The global tag page was built using a combination of plugins and displayed through the Tagnetic Poetry plugin. 

It will be interesting to see how the page does under a heavier load. Please comment if you encounter any problems.

Note: This functionality only covers posts that have gone up after it was turned on.
