Bluebird Banter United Update

New, comments

SB has made some changes to United. Details are below.

The smart people that work at SB Nation made some changes to United, while the rest of us were sleeping (you would think that if they were 'smart' they wouldn't be working in the middle of the night). Here are a list of some of the changes:

- Increased 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 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

As always there are more changes to come. You can't stop them from changing things, I've tried. If you want a list of all the changes made since the launch of United you can see it here.
