New! Featured Stories Pods
Release Date: 03 Mar 07
Category: Site Updates
Do you love the random featured story feature on the HASA home page? You can add one to your My Stuff main page today!
I have received a several requests from members to create a My Stuff pod that shows the "Featured Story" currently only available on the HASA home page. Ask no more! There are now three Featured Story pods to choose from:
- Reviewed and General - All members will find this pod in their pod selection drop down list . This one is identical to the home page feature and shows the same feature story at the same time.
- General and Beta - This pod is available to Writers Workshop status members. With this pod, you will see only General or Beta status works, which is a great way to focus on less known stories. Because this pulls from a different randomized list, the selections will be different than what you see on the home page.
- All Stories - This pod is available to Writing Workshop status members. In this pod, the selection is made from the full list of Reviewed, General and Beta status works. It is a distinct list and will show a different selection than either of the other two.
I added all three pods to my My Stuff main page just to see what would happen, and I now have three different featured stories: Never Speak Nor Sing, Tuckborough in the Spring, and Posing the Question.
These pods can only be added to the right-hand column. Look for them in the right-hand column drop-down list.
Give a new Featured Story pod a try today. Find out what great story gem it will uncover for you!
