ActiveBoard Mobile

Today we are excited to announce the launch Beta 1 of our Mobile Activeboard application. You need to have a gold ActiveBoard subscription to use the mobile site.

We are excited to support the following devices

  • Apple iOS 3.2-5.0 beta
  • Android 2.1-2.3:
  • Android Honeycomb
  • Windows Phone 7
  • Blackberry 6.0
  • Blackberry Playbook
  • Palm WebOS (1.4-2.0)
  • Palm WebOS 3.0
  • Firebox Mobile (Beta)
  • Opera Mobile 11.0
  • Kindle 3

To launch the mobile site, simply visit your favourite ActiveBoard from any mobile browser.

You can always visit the Standard ActiveBoard site by clicking the "Full Site" Button from the Mobile ActiveBoard menu. This will load the standard site by default on your phone. (You can switch back to the mobile site by clicking on the "Mobile Site" link at the bottom of any ActiveBoard).

You can also test out the mobile interface from any browser by appending mobile.spark to the URL.

For example, if the URL to your forum is http://adbutler.activeboard.com, you can visit the mobile site by visiting http://adbutler.activeboard.com/mobile.spark

While the standard ActiveBoard interface currently has more features, mobile ActiveBoard is a great way to engage with users online from a mobile device -- our developers are continuing to add more features to the mobile version.

 

 

AdButler load times improved by 66%

Last night our dev team did a major overhaul on AdButler. We realized there could be some improvement. While we were aiming for an increase of 30-40%, some pages (particularly those with many campaigns) loaded up to 66% faster.

This speed improvement will benefit those with both free and gold AdButler accounts. Happy AdServing!

Again, we're very excited to roll out this feature. Having used wordpress for 2 years myself, I never found a good gallery plugin.

New Spamfilter rollout

With the blog rolling out soon from now... the time came to (finally) make a Spamfilter for all Sparklit products.

You can set a link threshold in Administration > Settings > DIscussion; this will automatically flag posts as SPAM.

We are planning to integrate this with all of our other products by the end of July 2010!

EDIT: We've added the spam filter to our Webpoll and Mini Survey Products! Bye Bye Spam!!!
