We really appreciate the effort that goes in to provide all the features of our network. Here are a few suggestions to make things even better!

1. Page admins should be able to edit the URL of a page.

At the moment only full admins can change the URL of a page, blog post etc. I have a number of editors who have admin permission on pages, but can't edit the URL of the page. We do this to create sub-sites. We can then track this URL in Google Analytics. Can you set it up so that page admin permission includes URL, meta and custom features? Same goes for blogs and discussions.

2. Page comments need controls.

A blog owner has privacy settings to allow or approve comments on a blog post. Could you do the same for page comments? At the moment a page editor can allow or disallow comments on pages, but can't moderate them. We want to use this to invite suggestions, but only show approved suggestions. Suggest page comment approval is handled by the creator of the page.

3. Put "My pages" link button on personal profile and dashboard.

To access "My pages" it is necessary to first navigate to a page then click "My pages" Can you fix it so this is accessible direct from "My page" or from the Dashboard? With a page count??

4. Albums need permissions.

At the moment no one except the creator of an album has permission to edit it. Can you set it up so that there is a permission checkbox for albums in the features part of the administrative roles management page? We need this so we can have shared responsibility for managing some photo albums on our network.

5. Site space usage indicator needed.

Could you provide a statistic on the dashboard showing how much of the site space allowance is used? This could allow NCs to take preventive action or consider upgrading.

Many thanks!

  • No of Views should be there on Pages too like Blogs.

  • These are all great suggestions, James. I will definitely pass them along to the product team. 

    You may see a way to gauge storage in the future. We don't enforce limits in most situations because you don't have a way to accurately measure and manage that space. So, you are right about that, for sure. 

  • We spend a lot of time adding Alt Tags to photos in html.  I would love to be able to do this without going into code.
