SB Nation United Update


It's been nearly a month since we introduced the new site format, and the product team has been hard at work during that month to improve the functioning of the new SB Nation United system. We've seen many, many silent updates throughout this period. Bugs have been fixed and the overall experience has been improved, but we're not done with the system. Today a few more fixes were ruled out, and I thought I'd share them with you.

- Increased the amount the number of recommended and recent FanPosts on the homepage
- Changed the styles to improve scanning of FanPosts and FanShot headlines and new comments on the homepage
- Added author bylines on Articles in the cover
- Added indicator if articles or features are from another SB Nation site when placed on the homepage
- Added article headline to comments on user profile recent activity list for better reply context
- Reinstated the ability for users to add polls to FanPosts
- Reinstated accurate comment counts on StoryStream updates in the cover
- Reinstated ability for authors to add custom captions to photos
- Trending Stories are now relevant to league of the team or sport the blog covers
- Fixed issue with Shift-A keyboard shortcut for comments not working properly in large threads
- Fixed issue with logos that break out of the circle getting cropped
- Fixed issue where new comment count was incorrect on FanShots posted from another site
- Fixed issue with filters not working on FanShot index page
- Fixed Facebook login issues
- Improved visibility of next and previous arrows on photo galleries
- Added correct author names to the FanPosts page
- Mobile optimization improvements

That's a whole list of issues, and the product team isn't done. Let us know how you feel about the changes so far, and let us know of any issues you're experiencing that we can improve upon.
