Not a Digg clone: Comments

Just noticed couple of issues.
1. There is a character limit on story description. And there is no way one can enter a story without a URL. Occasionally, the ability to submit a story which is pure editorial is essential, I feel. With a practically unlimited word count. Could you take care of this?
2. the admin site - one can search for an old story, but once the result is displayed, you can't edit that story. If i search for a story which I put up some 1 week back to edit it, the only way for me is to browse through the listing till I find it. The search result does not offer the Edit story capability. Or am I missing something?

Matt - Each site owner decides whether a URL is mandatory or not. So technically you could have a site where you can in fact enter a story without a URL, as long as the site admin configured the site that way (check the "advanced" tab in the site settings page).

As for the limit, we'll be doing something about that soon.

And about the story search you're aboslutely right, and we'll have that fixed asap!

Thanks RBA, its great the way you respond so fast.

I just checked my site, and seems I have already enabled submission without URL. However, the word limit is what confused me. 5oo is too little for us with a journalism background :)

Speaking of digg, I like to place a real-time coRank count and vote button to every single blog post to blogger. Where can I find the code?
For digg works this:


digg_url = "";


For coRank?

Matt - The limit is 5,000, not 500 ¿right?

TWD - coRank still doesn't offer a button that includes the count (it will soon) but if you go to the Tools page (left menu option), in the "Add a Submit to..." section you can see the code to put a submit/vote button. For Blogger you'll need to replace some values with the equivalent Blogger code (such as for the URL).

Note that for a particular site, you'll need to visit the Tools menu at that site to get the correct code.

And as I said, expect new buttons w/ more functionality coming soon!

The limit is 500 in the story submission page!

Matt, you're absolutely right. What was I thinking? Ok, we'll do something about that soon.

Hello there,

The more I use corank, the more features I wish were there. Would be great if you could let us know if / when the following requests might be available.

1. increasing word count in stories without a link to 5000 or more.

2. images within the story submission. basically, multiple images with a story. (Is this possible by uploading images in say, photobucket or something, and embedding with HTML?)

3. ability to allow or disallow specific HTML within the story submission. So that we can offer a link or more within the story.

4. some way for administrator to contact members, welcome them, or send a broadcast message to everyone in the network.

5. some way for members to contact each other.

6. a way to put up the latest comments in stories on the homepage or sidebar.

7. some way to add a tag cloud to the page.

8. more categories?

9. assign a story to multiple categories?

10. can a story be made sticky in some way?

Plus, there are some bugs you already know about in adding the Vote button on external sites.. some timeframe by which these would be resolved? Can send you a detailed note on them if you need any help there.

> 1. increasing word count in stories without a link to 5000 or more.

Coming up soon.

We won't be adding the possibility to add more than one image per story, but read answer to #3


> 3. ability to allow or disallow specific HTML within the story
> submission. So that we can offer a link or more within the story.

Yes, this will be coming soon.


> 4. some way for administrator to contact members, welcome them, or send
> a broadcast message to everyone in the network.

Some of this will also be coming in the next few weeks.


> 5. some way for members to contact each other.

Still thinking about this one. We have a couple of ideas to make it feasible without opening the door to spammers, but we want to brainstorm a bit more.


> 6. a way to put up the latest comments in stories on the homepage or
> sidebar.
>
> 7. some way to add a tag cloud to the page.

6 and 7 will be coming after our API is launched. So we're talking sometime early August.


> 8. more categories?

I doubt we'll go over 30 categories for a while.


> 9. assign a story to multiple categories?

Added to the to-do list but honestly, this is added as a low priority.


> 10. can a story be made sticky in some way?

Could you please explain?

That would be helpful, yes. We're already wortking on a better voting widget for external sites, but it will probably go out after the API.

Long time no blogging..?

Hope the expected updates/ upgrades are on track?

Matt, they're coming soon. If we haven't been blogging lately it's because we've been busy working hard behind the scenes :-)

Great to hear that RBA!

A suggestion - as you can't blog all the time, why not plug a forum in? More discussions between members would make this site a lot livelier...

Good idea Matt, we'll launch it in the next few days :-)
