We are building features for the Women Who Code community and we want to highlight that work with our stakeholders, you! THANK YOU to our contributors for dedicating their valuable time to help us build tech a place where women can excel.
You can follow all of our work on github. Below are a few snippets of our awesome features.
The Core Team has been working on some exciting features for the website this week. These include giving greater control to admins over the About page, an important update to the Blog Post feature, and some new capabilities on the back end for job posts.
Update TeamMember name field
- This update brings us one step closer to allowing admins to change and update the Team Members on the About page from the admin back end. In particular, this allows for the changing of their first and last names.
Use TeamMembers for About page
- This is another similar update that controls the sort order of Team Members on the About page. People on this page are sorted by the categories of Leaders, Team, Board, Advisors, and Ambassadors. Team members are sorted by join date while all other categories are sorted alphabetically by last name.
Remove Blog Post validation requiring Profile
- For a while now in order for blog posts to publish they had to be associated with an existing account on the womenwhocode.com website. However, many blogs are written and submitted by experts in the field who do not yet have an account, or their account email may not be known by the person publishing the post. This change still allows you to associate a blog with an account but no longer makes it a requirement.
Remove unused gems
- This is part of the process that allows admins to expire old job posts from the back end, making that process more code efficient.
Ordering Job stack tags
- This allows job posters to add associated tags to their posts in any order they like, and they will show up on all display pages in that order.
