Profile Plus gets a bit more…
Try hovering over the little avatar in the Profile Plus and you get to zoom in.
Works best with avatars uploaded on your site, not so with the gravatar images.
Otherwise, profile plus works as before with convenient input for text and icons for other features.
Don’t forget, the content of the Profile Plus hover box changes for your avatar, your friends avatars and others.
Re-save your personal information (on your profile page) – or for the first time on new WPS sites – and you’ll be “geo-coded”!!
Don’t worry, it’s nothing rude, it’s just an X/Y co-ordinate of where you are in the world. And if two members have both been “geo-coded” the distance between them (ie. you and the other members) will be shown on the member directory.
It was a bit too easy to delete groups, so now the group is a request to the site administrator, who has the “power” to delete the group. Also adds a level of security – imagine you walk away from your keyboard and someone deletes all your groups – argh!!
“Poke”s ™ appear on activity streams
Send somebody a “Poke” ™ and it appears on the recipients activity as well as an email.
Importantly, it’s private between the two of you and doesn’t appear on friends activity feeds.
It’s a nice way to hold a conversation on your profile page.
