  • Improved
    We updated the homepage a bit and made the text easier to read, swapped the background image and added clearer sections.

  • Improved
    The account sidebar navigation items now have clearer labels.
  • Improved
    If you don’t have an active subscription, you can go directly to the upgrade page from the account sidebar instead of seeing an empty subscriptions overview page (but we improved the look of this one, too).
  • Improved
    In your account settings, you will now only see the privacy options about the supporter page appearance if you have an active subscription (and thus, are affected).
  • Improved
    If an event is organized by only one person, we use the singular of oranizers and show the profile card centered on the event page.
  • Improved
    We introduced URL history for AJAX actions before, now we made it optional so user actions that shouldn’t alter the URL don’t do it anymore.

Wednesday, 22nd May 2019

  • New
    If your public profile is missing details, we now show you a notice to make it more useful on the homepage.
  • New
    We now allow you to import your existing event website into Colloq. Right now this will parse your HTML to find some details and prefill them for you. In the future this will be extended by more advanced import mechanisms.
