New design goes live
We’ve rolled out a complete new look for Designing Buildings Wiki.
As well as a fresh design, we have a much improved navigation system, and a whole host of new features. It should be easier to find what you're looking for, easier to find related information and easier to upload files and create new articles.
And when you do write an article, you can now add your profile to it so people can see who you are, find your ‘page about me’ and go to your website. This is good for you, giving better recognition for your contributions to the site, and it is good for our users, letting them know who has written the articles they are reading.
To add your profile to an article you've written, just log in, click ‘Edit this article’, go to the end of the article, and click the insert signature button.
And that’s it. When you save the article, your user signature will be in the article (ours looks like this --designing buildings 06:25, 22 May 2014 (BST)) and your profile will appear at the top of the page, like ours does on this one.
If you make significant changes to an existing article, you can replace the existing author. Just delete the existing signature from the bottom of the article and click insert signature to add your own. When you save the article, your profile will appear at the top of the page. And don’t worry, the details of all previous authors will still appear in the article history.
So this may be a good time to check your profile is complete and up to date. Just log in and click ‘Edit my profile’ at the top of the page.
Let us know what you think of the changes.
