    New BEST OF Local Search + Featured Member Posts & Cool New Nav Tricks

    The forum is growing so fast and there are so many major updates and tips flowing in every single day now that I know it's hard to find the best info as it sometimes gets buried.

    In addition to breaking the forum into many sections to help you find the information you need, our team has been brainstorming other ways to bubble up the most important info and the very best tips to make it easier to find.

    NEW FORUM FEATURES FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE!

    TAG CLOUD - This one isn't new it's been around, but has not been used much - until now that is!
    (You can find the tag cloud link at the bottom of each post.)

    New "BEST OF" Section - This is a new way I just started to categorize posts using the tags feature. I have quite a few marked 'best of' but def not all! It's a work in progress to try to find and add them all. But check out some of the best listed so far, in case you missed anything.

    Featured Member Posts - I'm using this section to feature great blog posts I post about here in the forum as a way to give back to the community for their knowledge and contributions.

    Trending this Week Activity Stream - David my talented forum Administrator recently added this new feature. So at top of forum "Recent Posts" shows latest posts in chronological order. But "Trending" bubbles up some of the most popular posts of the last week which may help you find important posts you missed. It also shows a pic of who posted as yet one more way we try to give our member recognition for their contributions to the community.

    Stay tuned... Just like Google - we have more updates on the way!

    Colan if you see anything that needs to be promoted to 'best of' or other hashtags and aren't sure how to do it, post in the "mod squad" forum and I'll explain.
