February 2019 Updates to Lithosphere

As I am sure you can imagine there is a lot going on  around here at the moment, aside from a bunch of back-end changes I wanted to call out some of our recent changes to the user experience here on the community.

 

Last month we enabled Promoted Search which shows community locations as part of the search as well allowing us to boost certain content within the search results. You can read more about it it in @ChetnaS blog post: Introducing Promoted Search: Boost content in community search results.

As you can see to the right we have also enabled Content Mentions. They behave very similar to user mentions as you use the @ key to open the drop down and enter the title of the content you want to insert a link for.

 

 

Product associations.pngWe have also enabled a few product associations which you can activate using the # key. Please note we are still early in our development of its use here on Lithosphere but some examples include: Community , ConversationsValue Analytics , Forums among others.

 

 

Lithium Community 19.1 brings with it early access to Editor V2 which updates the TinyMCE editor, cleans up the toolbars

...and enables new emoticons. We have enabled it on the Lithosphere so you can go and check out the experience.

Finally we have enabled a beta for Category Subscriptions to make it even easier for you to get notified about new content in areas of the community relevant to you. On category pages click on the options at the top right and choose Subscribe. This will give you a pop up to manage your subscriptions within that category.

@AndyK try @ mentioning on mobile. At least on my phone, after an @ mention the browser scrolls all the way to the top. Related to the new editor?
