I thought I would write a post to clarify a few issues that are being brought up with regard to the platform’s upgrade.
First, we’re glad you’re here. I know it was a pretty frustrating experience for some of you to get back into the platform at the re-launch. We’re really sorry about that.
Some of the headlines-
What happened to notification emails?
When we launched there were, as many of you know, a number of technical hiccups. To better control the situation we temporarily disabled notifications. We did this to limit the amount of traffic to the site (we send over 2.5 million emails a month) in an effort to limit the number of people who might run into the bugs. These notifications will be turned on again next week (the week starting Jul 15).
Why was I having problems logging in?
We tested the system across all browsers including iPad/mobile before we launched but sometimes you can’t replicate real life, and login was unfortunately what suffered the most in this. Most of the early login problems are now fixed, but a few people may still be being logged out when they are browsing. We’ll have that straightened out soon.
Where’s my badge!? Why are my photos psychedelic/upside down? etc
Almost all of these type of issues we are aware of and on our list of fixes over the coming few days. We have had to prioritise the most urgent ones first. You can go to support.healthunlocked.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org to help identify any you think we might have missed.
Where are my blogs?
As most of you have noticed ‘blogs’ have been renamed to ‘posts’. However, all the same content is still there. A lot of users told us they were daunted by the idea of blogging when they first joined the site so ‘posts’ are aimed to make it easier and more welcoming.
Some information on the bigger bugs
Can’t login with username / email - fixed
Links in activity feeds lead to an error page - fixed
Usability issues with internet explorer 10 - fixed
Links from public profile lead to an error page - fixed
Changing password from account page not working - fixed
Changing password from the ‘forgot password’ link on the login page - in process - it usually changes the password, but might tell you it didn’t.
Finally, thanks for still being here and having the faith in us to get things back on the rails.
