Update of Indymedia Software

category national | indymedia ireland | news report author Monday September 30, 2013 01:45author by 1 of Indymedia Report this post to the editors

Beta release of Oscailt v3.6

The software running the Indymedia Ireland website has been updated. It has some new features and improvements of which three will be of interest to users of this site.

The first is that you can now edit your own comments for up to 15 minutes after they are published.

The second is that during publish there are some basic tags built in to form a mini editor with the key ability now being able to quote text and it will get display indented and in italics -much like forum software does this. There are also buttons to make it easier to bold, italic, underline text and an Euro symbol.

The third is that the larger cover images for Youtube and Vimeo videos are now automatically retrieved and displayed within an article replacing the less attractive smaller thumbnail images.

A few other minor changes relate to the publish form which collapses the optional parts of the form in an attempt to make this cleaner, an update of the photo-essay mode to include images in the comments in the main slide show, links to the full resolution images.

The remaining changes are not rolled out yet, but they are mostly new capabilities to the page layouts, ability to import images like RSS feeds and other internal improvements and bugfixes which will not be as noticeable to end-users.

If you come across any technical problems, please let us know through the contact form.

T. Well done for all the work done as moderator to Indymedia. It's great to see a move forward with additional editing and uploading facilties. Open publishing or citizen journalism has an integral part to play in keeping people involved, informed and where at all possible contributing to social media.

T and the team of moderators deserve a thank you.

Hi!

I've always found the site to be 'user-friendly' and very effective at getting a message across , whether it be a picket , protest or meeting - these improvements will make it easier to do so in a more efficient manner.

Great work.

Thanks!

Sharon.

The importance of the input of T and others on this media collective can be summed in the title of Theo Dorgan's Opinion piece in the recent newspapers. Freedom to express opinion rests with the people who have always found avenues for expression through the written word. It is Indymedia that provides the avenues in this digital age for concerned citizens.

October 4th 2012 is three days away - the Upper House option is deletion but with the goodbye package costing e5million plus; not reform. Highly recommend Theo Dorgan's Opinion piece - "We need to safeguard our democracy from the creeping concentration of government power in ever fewer hands".

Dorgan further states "Power in this State has been quietly, inexorably consolidated into fewer and fewer hands".

Indymedia has a purpose and the option is there for people to be the eyes, ears, experiences,witnesses, voices of the importance of freedom of expression. One decade on, Indymedia surely deserves some recognition.

Indymedia Ireland is one of my first sites to visit when I go online. It covers things the staid media decline to cover, and gives assorted points of view. You don't please everybody, but you attract attention and some people are prompted to take appropriate actions. The moderators have their work cut out at times I know. Good wishes to them and the site hosts for the future, whatever it may be. Updating of communications technology is always welcome and needed.

Though he does not differentiate between "professional journalism" and "citizen journalism" in the video clip available via the first www link provided below, professional journalist (and lawyer) Glenn Greenwald (of Edward Snowden fame) gives some very interesting insights into what, for want of a better term, I will call "healthy journalism" might/should be about (as I see things that is) .

"Glenn Greenwald Full Interview on Snowden, NSA, GCHQ and Spying":
http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article36423.htm
(Posted October 03, 2013)

At the other extreme (of "healthy journalism"), and from a different www source:

'Improved surveillance, takedown of opposition websites for illegal content and paid pro-government commentators are among the increasingly sophisticated tools used by authorities to restrict internet freedom, a new report claims.'

"Authorities": as in "corruption-and-crime-ridden governments", and their corruption-and-crime-ridden "public-servant" (so called) accomplices.

The excerpt just above is from:
http://rt.com/news/internet-freedom-house-report-706/
(Published time: October 04, 2013 00:47)

For a recent sample of one of my own attempts at "citizen journalism" (of a political/legal nature) please see at:
