Photo Watermark

Jason Schaefer 5 years ago in BLOX CMS • updated 5 years ago 2
Does anyone know if BLOX has a method to automatically add a watermark during processing of the multiple sized photos but keep it off the original for selling through second street's photo service?
Answer
Hi Jason! That is not currently available. You could do something a bit more manual, like a Photoshop macro, and then upload an unmarked one for MyCapture, but nothing automated.

We also can disable right clicking and/or save to desktop via a JavaScript - but of course, you could always do a screen shot.

What's the easiest way to temp disable the paywall?

Mike Stickler 5 years ago in BLOX CMS • updated 5 years ago 5
We are making our site free during the current winter storm. To do so I edited the url assignments for each of the services but the process takes a little time and is prone to error when it is done and undone as a check mark missed can lock some users out of a section. 

Is there an easier way to accomplish the same thing?

Add the ability for front-end users to make purchases with a Paypal account in forms--not just limit users to entering a credit card.

Option to duplicate classified assets

Jacki Gray 5 years ago in BLOX CMS • updated by Christine Masters (Director of Product Management) 5 years ago 1
Feature request: It would be great to have the option to duplicate assets in Marketplace>Classifieds. A function to duplicate assets in all Blox applications would be useful.

Collection Pagination

Jason Schaefer 5 years ago in BLOX CMS • updated by Christine Masters (Director of Product Management) 5 years ago 4
Is there a customization that I am not seeing that paginates the number of articles associated with a collection? We are in the process of setting up topic pages but the number of articles is making the page very long and it would look better if it paginated after about 20 articles.

Updated Story Notifications

Max Magee 5 years ago in BLOX CMS • updated by Christine Masters (Director of Product Management) 5 years ago 4
A co-worker mentioned that it'd be nice for logged-in readers to be able to mark a story so that they receive notifications if and when that story is updated. I guess by email.

Bullets and other special characters

Amanda Dresbach 5 years ago in BLOX CMS • updated by Christine Masters (Director of Product Management) 5 years ago 2
One of our publications uses bullets and other special characters in the print edition. Those characters are stripped out when content is loaded into Blox. How can we prevent that from happening?

Email Reach Mail List ID

Jason Schaefer 5 years ago in BLOX CMS • updated by Christine Masters (Director of Product Management) 5 years ago 1
You guys seriously need to make finding the ID more convenient.

Having to view the page source code to get the list ID is really bad administration.
It should be displayed as text under the edit list popup.

Just my 2 cents...

Banner ad issues

Patrick Brannan 5 years ago in BLOX CMS • updated by Christine Masters (Director of Product Management) 5 years ago 4
Has anyone else had problems with the banner ad admin recently? The position weighting option isn't working correctly (I can't get a locked percentage to actually save) and I've got other ads, that while they are running, they stopped tracking impressions. Just wondering if anyone else has seen anything like this.

Will Townnews consider creating an impression count for articles that is viewable on the front end?

Blind reply for classifieds/ad owl

Carrie Kuhl 5 years ago • updated by Christine Masters (Director of Product Management) 5 years ago 1
Wish there was a way to Blind reply to ads in adowl-like in craigslist or backpage.com. Of course users would still need to register as a real person but a blind reply would allow them to click one button to inquire to the seller or service provider without giving up their phone number or private email address right off the bat. With an option like that, our product would be on the same level but "spam free" and far superior to other online classifieds sites. Way easier for you to sell more companies on too :)

Adding a poll

LuAnn Schindler 5 years ago in BLOX CMS • updated by Christine Masters (Director of Product Management) 5 years ago 3
I am trying to post a poll, but it isn't showing up on our site. Ideas? I looked at previous poll posts and everything is the same, as far as posting "checks."
