Upcoming Feature: Show number of notes in dashboard notification previews!
For those who don’t know, a little while ago, Missing e added a feature that shows a small thumbnail preview when you hover over the word photo, photoset or video in a dashboard notification so you can easily see what post the notification is for!
In the upcoming 2.6.0 version (which is rolling out over the next little while), these preview boxes will also show the number of notes that post currently has! This will work for all types of posts, not just photo and video posts.
Many of you have been asking about the new photo post notification preview feature that I added over the weekend.
The question I get most often is if I could add the ability to show the number of notes a post has in the little preview box, much like the XPreview script that the idea is based on.
The reason I have not included this yet is that in order to get the image AND the number of notes, it is necessary to do twice the number of Tumblr webpage loads in the background. I strive to look for ways to implement neat features without creating too much extra work for your browser. To that end, I am still looking for ways to do this that won’t cost too much in terms of performance.
Upcoming Missing e Features
In the next update of Missing e, I’m adding (so far) one little tweak and one new feature:
Draggable Dashboard Ask Boxes
Ask boxes opened without leaving the dashboard (one of the existing options in the Ask Tweaks feature) will be draggable. Simply click and hold on the top bar of the ask box and drag it around the screen.
Thanks to lifewasted for the suggestion.
Sortable Notes (in dashboard posts)
With this option activated in the Dashboard Tweaks feature, when you open the notes in a dashboard post, you’ll have the option of sorting them by note type (reblog, reply, like, etc) and username.
Click the Type and User buttons to toggle between sorting in ascending and descending order, or use your mouse to drag the Type and User buttons to change the sort order (e.g. note type first and username second or username first and note type second).
Limitation: Only notes that have already been loaded will be sorted. When you click the “Show more notes” button, the older notes (which are just loaded) will be automatically sorted, too.
Thanks to thefrogman for the suggestion.
