We’re delighted to announce a new version of Miro Community (0.9), which brings a host of new features and themes to the table. The software is incredibly powerful for bringing together video from all over the web into a cohesive website that can have a look and feel that suits a community or organization.
A few highlights:
Enhanced Performance - Miro Community now checks for new videos from your sources more often, and we’ve made a variety of changes to make the sites run more smoothly.
New blog-like theme (“blue theme”) offers editors the ability to do blog-like commentary for video items and highlights user activity such as recent comments.
Categories hover menu in navigation bar – You no longer need to be in Category theme to have the categories accessible on the front page.
Increased Chrome Support - Site thumbnails now look crisp and clean in Chrome as well as other browsers.
Custom Themes for Premium Users – Premium users can now upload their own Django templates to the site, allowing them more flexibility in site design.
reCAPTCHA and default comment moderation – reCAPTCHA is now included on all video pages, making it much more difficult for spammers to leave comments.
Reorganized Administrative Area: We’ve pared down the administrative area to make it easier to navigate.
These are just a few of the many improvements.
