It's 4:00AM and finally done with the 1st phase release of Rakista.com Version 4. Sorry it took long, please be informed that this is just phase 1 and some features are not yet implemented.
Some changes we have for this release are:
1. Groups are now Pages. Groups from Version 3 were converted to Pages.
2. Ability to add widgets to pages. Try it!
3. Facebook connect . You can now login and use the site using your facebook account. Ex. Post directly to rakista if you are logged in facebook.
4. Overall layout improved in marketplace, blogs, events, polls, etc.
5. Dashboard and Homepage improved.
6. Additional features like pokes, etc!
7. Comments are now centralized. Example, comments you created blog feed (dashboard) of a topic forum are now the same as the comments in the main blog page . This applies to all comments in blogs, events, etc.
8. Other improvements that are too many to list here. :p
We'll keep you updated with the next releases, I know it is like facebook, but it also has features that I'm sure you will like.
Let us know your feedback. Post comments below.
P.S.Apologize if you experience slow loading of pages, we are still in the process of configuring the server and we will do our best to make it faster.
